Heat Mat offer a specialist fault finding service if electric underfloor heating systems are damaged during or subsequent to installation. If a heating cable shows and earth fault or a loss of continuity Heat Mat can provide the services of a specialist company who are able to locate the fault often down to the nearest 15mm.
The cable can then be exposed and repaired in situ without requiring the entire floor to be taken up. There are a number of ways to locate damaged cables, including by measuring the electrical ‘noise’ caused by a spark at the area of damage or even using a high end thermal imaging camera to pick up the very feint amount of heat generated by the same spark.
Fault finding on electrical underfloor heating cables is, however, a very specialist task. For further details please contact Heat Mat.
