Just wiring up an in floor heating thermostat. I have two separate two wires going into my flooring as well as another coming from the panel.
I am wondering about the two wires going down to the flooring.
Wire 1: Is the sensor for the floor. Wire 2: Is the heated wires for the floor.
So can wire 1 be ran close to wire 2? In the instructions it says that the sensor (wire 1) should not be ran with the heated load cable (wire 2). It looks like both cables are coming into the box through the same hole so I am not sure how the previous person on this new instal did the rough in but it looks like they are ran together. Is this going to be a big problem?
Also wire 2 (the heated floor cable) is about 4 feet long in the thermostat box. There is a tag close to the end of it that says to not remove that tag with some ampacities etc on it. So it makes me think that I cannot cut the extra 4 feet off and must coil it in the box (maybe it needs that set resistance of the cable to operate properly?). But thats a big bundle of wire to heat inside the device box so I just wanted to check.
