WarmWire cables are very close to SunTouch mats in construction and provide the same cozy heat for your floors, but cost less and install differently.
To install WarmWire you need to:
- Place and attach the WarmWire strap to the subfloor;
- Weave the wire back and forth between straps to create your own heated area (while doing that space the wires depending on your warming needs.)
- Cover with thin-set or self-leveling mortar. You can then use almost any floor covering with WarmWire (tile, stone, wood, laminate, carpet)
Why WarmWire is so Great?
- Easy to install in rooms of any size or shape;
- Safe good for installation in showers;

- Product Details
WarmWire = Zero EMF
An emerging issue in the electric radiant heat industry is EMF (electromagnetic field) radiation. SunTouch pioneered and sells only ZERO EMF products constructed with active dual wire EMF-canceling technology.
All SunTouch products use a complex wire construction with two heating elements in parallel with an added and patented helical twist to eliminate EMF. Other electric radiant floor heating companies sell single-wire systems that release high levels of EMF when compared to SunTouch.
What is EMF? Electromagnetic fields (EMF) come from all electrical appliances, but studies show an average American's daily exposure is less than 1 unit (mG) of EMF. But. when you sit on an unshielded electric radiant floor, you may be exposed to 20, 40, or more times the average daily exposure. This Data comes from Independent testing. Read More Here
Is limiting exposure to EMF important? No one is certain. The World Health Organization says the data is inconclusive to date, but continues their research. We provide this EMF information because it is important to some people, not to frighten you or exaggerate any risk.
For many years customers have chosen SunTouch Zero EMF systems, but we leave the choice to you after explaining what we do know.

- How to Install
Plan your layout and determine the cable direction. Measure
about 3" in. inches from the wall, and place strap parallel to
the wall. Under toe kick spaces, install the strap 1.5"in. inches
to 2" in. inches away from the vanity.
Cut the strap to length for each side of area
to be heated.
Secure the strap to the subfloor using double-sided
tape, glue, or fasteners.
Fill in each section back and forth with cable,
spacing the wire 2.5" or 3" in. inches
apart. For additional areas, cut and attach the
straps accordingly and begin weaving the
wire into that area.
If cables are running greater than 3' or 4'ft. feet across a room, be sure to add another
strap to thread through in the center of the area to be heated.
