Normally floor heating is regulated by air temperature sensors.
These should usually be installed at the height of the switch
(between 0.8 to 1.5 meters from the floor) to read a representative
Mounting the air sensor near the floor or ceiling is not efficient.
For floors with tiles, especially in bathrooms, it is recommended to
place a sensor recessed in the floor under the last tile, as well as
a room temperature sensor.
This keeps the floor warm even when the air temperature is
Although this will result in the set

preferable to walking on a cold stone floor (especially if you have
just taken a hot bath or shower).
electrical floor heating, it is in most cases necessary for the
floor sensor to be adapted to each floor area, as well as the room
Unlike water in tubes where the water temperature is carefully
controlled and when impossible to generate hazardous surface
temperatures, electric heating radiators can cause the floor to
become uncomfortably hot.
By using floor sensors, we can set both the minimum and the highest
temperature for the floor.
