Similarly, can you use any thermostat on underfloor heating?
Choose a Thermostat That Works with Your House The first thing to look at is the heat source, as not all thermostats are compatible with all heat sources. They can be suitable for underfloor heating only, central heating only, or in some cases both.
Secondly, how many thermostats do I need for underfloor heating? The general rule for Touch underfloor Heating mats is that you can connect 23 square meters of Underfloor Heating Mats to 1 x Thermostat.
Similarly one may ask, do I need a special thermostat for radiant heat?
Regular forced air heating thermostats are not well suited to operating radiant floor heating systems. These thermostats turn on the radiant floor when the air is below the temperature setting, and shut off when it's above the temperature setting.
Does it matter what thermostat I buy?
Before choosing a thermostat, you'll need to make sure it's compatible with your heating and cooling system. The most common system types are central heat or central heat and air, which can be 24-volt (V), gas, oil or electric. Other system types include heat pump, electric baseboard, fireplace and floor/wall furnace.
