But even if you decide to entrust this matter to a specialist, it would be nice to know what the process looks like — just in case, as they say, trust, but verify. Tips from “KP” and expert Konstantin Livanov, who has been engaged in repair work for 30 years, will help you figure out how to connect the thermostat to a warm floor in a quality manner.
How to connect a thermostat to a warm floor
What is a thermostat
A device such as a thermostat, or, as it is also called, a thermostat, is needed for the operation of a warm floor (and not only). It allows you to control the on / off of the system and fix the temperature regime for a certain period of time. And the most advanced modern systems are able to maintain and change the microclimate in the house and remotely, through the network.

Choice of mounting location
To install, you first need to determine where we will put the thermostat. Most modern appliances are designed for a standard wall box with a diameter of 65 mm. They are installed in the socket frame or placed separately — this is not so important for installation. It is desirable to power the thermostat from the electrical panel using an automatic protective shutdown system. But it is also possible to use the connection to the outlet (AC mains 220 V, 50 Hz).
