Under-tile heating is a must if you wish to avoid the harshness of stone cold tiles in winter.  You can set on/off times throughout the day or control it manually or by a thermostat.  These systems add value to your home and cheap to run due to their low watt usage.

The Hotwire system is the simplest to install and perfect for a DIY project. It is the only system that can be installed into small spaces so you have no cold spots.  The kit includes a fully SAA compliant heating element and programmable touch screen thermostat/timer controller.  Full DIY installation instructions and videos are available - or we have many recommended installers Australia-wide.

The Hotwire Under Tile Heating kits are the most versatile on the market. As the wire element can be coiled into narrow spaces (which is not possible with wire-on-mat systems) you get no cold spots on your floor.

Benefits of Under Tile Heating

Invisible heat - a natural feeling of warmth with no fans or ducts
On demand - fast to warm up (circa 30 minutes)
Warm floor - warmth where you need it the most
Asthma and allergy friendly - no air or dust movement from ducted heating
Cheap to run - about 2c per square metre per hour (at average household electricity prices and room size)
Dry floor - the heat dries floors and reduces chances of mould and cleaning requirements
Better bathrooms - as heat lamps are not required exhaust fans can be placed over showers
Programmable - automatic heat for when you need it and temperature controls
Easy installation - most versatile installation method available.  You can DIY the heating element
Sleek controller - highest quality touch-screen wall controller with backlight and 24/7 timer functionality  
Temperature control - floor or room sensor to thermostatically control by temperature
Safe - cable is only circa 50°C so tiles will not crack
Compact - heating element is only 4mm thick
Maintenance free - Once installed it is maintenance free.  

Under tile heating can augment your existing heating or be a total solution

Many homeowners believe that under-floor heating is not necessary when they are installing other home heating solutions.  This is simply not the case - whilst under-tile heating can be used to heat a room, it can also be used to simply heat the floor.  Have you ever been in a traditionally heated tiled room?  The room feels warm at head hight, but the floor is cold and it is not comfortable walking in bare feet.  Under-floor heating can be your entire heating solution, or it can simply augment your other heating systems.   

Did you know that ducted heating can cause a temperature difference of up to 12 degrees between the floor and ceiling?   Under Tile Heating heats uniformly form the floor to ceiling and will also save you hundreds of dollars in the long run compared to bathroom heat lamps.  As a total bathroom heating solution its running costs compare very favourably to other heating solutions such as heat lamps - see below.

HOTWIRE Under-Tile Heating is the most flexible system available

Unlike many other under floor heating products that are expensive to buy, install, run and maintain, the HOTWIRE Under Tile Heating DIY kit enables you to do most of the work yourself and will only need the service of an electrician to connect the controller to the power once the hotwire has been laid. The flexibility of using a coiled wire verse a conventional heated mat makes installation so much easier, especially when laying in small tricky spaces around toilets and doorways. The heated HOTWIRE coil can simply be laid down on your homes substrate and taped in a coiled design before laying tiles on top. Therefore, your room will be warmed evenly leaving no cold spots to freeze your toes.  Watch the instructional video below to see why Hotwire under tile heating is the most versatile on the market.

What's in the under tile heating kit?

Easy to Install

HOTWIRE laying down coil tape install

The primary benefit of our HOTWIRE Under-Tile Heating DIY Kits is the ability for it to be installed almost entirely yourself. Due to Australian standards, a licensed electrician must connect the thermostat to the power source however this is the last step and the rest of the installation can be done yourself. With our in-depth and easy-to-follow installation instructions, save yourself hundreds of dollars by installing the product yourself!

The installation process involves priming your floor surface and simply coiling your HOTWIRE around your entire floor surface at even intervals before taping down in place. All tape, wires and necessary installation equipment are included.

How to measure your floor?

The length of your HOTWIRE Under Tile Heating coil is based on the square meter-age of space that you would like to cover. Generally, this doesn't include the area under fixed units such as vanities, cupboards, baths etc. 

Once the square meter-age of the room or space you want to heat has been determined, select the corresponding range in the product options section and your price will be calculated.

For example say your bathroom is 4 square meters but with a permanently fixed vanity and shower, only 3 square meters of tiling will be pulled up. You will select the 2.60 - 3.30 range from the product options drop down box. The calculated price includes all of the installation hardware within the kit as well as the touch screen thermostat.

Quick Despatch

Unless otherwise stated, orders are typically despatched within one business day.  If an order is made after hours or on non-business days it is deemed to be made on the next business day - so, for example, an order made on the weekend will be queued for despatch on the Monday, and is typically despatched that day or the following business day.  Items that are ordered before 12noon (10am for New Zealand) on a business day, are usually despatched that same day.

Delivery Timeframes

Preferred carriers

Delivery timeframes are dependent on your location, which distribution centre we are sending from, the size and number of parcels, and the schedules of the carrier. Australia Post and Toll Ipec are our preferred carriers, although sometimes other carriers are utilised. In most cases the average delivery times we observe are:

VIC Metro 1 to 3 business days
VIC Regional 2 to 4 business days
NSW Metro 2 to 4 business days
NSW Regional 4 to 6 business days
QLD Metro 3 to 5 business days
QLD Regional 4 to 9 business days
TAS, SA, WA and NT 3 to 9 business days

These are average delivery times and we often observe shorter and longer timeframes. Renovator Store cannot control delivery timeframes and processes, and your first point of communication on a delivery is the carrier. 

To see more detailed estimated delivery timeframes visit our Estimated Shipping Times page.

Your order might arrive in separate deliveries

An order might come in multiple parcels. Sometimes we might send your order in more than one package or from different distribution centres, and they may arrive at different times.

How can I track my order delivery?

In most cases you will be sent instructions by email on how to track your delivery once your order has been completed.  In some cases tracking information is not available.  If you are concerned about the progress of your delivery the fastest way to get information is to contact the carrier and quote the tracking number.  We can only see the same tracking information available to you.

What if I am not at home to accept delivery?

Australia Post and Toll typically require a signature upon delivery and our nominated couriers typically deliver only during business hours.  So it is best to provide a shipping address that will be attended during business hours.  If someone is not available to accept the goods the standard practice is to leave a card informing you how to collect at your local Post Office or for re-delivery.

You can put a short note on your order on the order checkout screen to provide delivery instructions, however Renovator Store cannot guarantee the carrier will observe these requests.

We can deliver to an Australia Post Parcel Locker

Product Hints

DIY installation Comprehensive installation instructions and videos are provided so you can confindently install yourself if that is your preference. It is easier than you think - the heating element can be laid yourself, but an electrician is required to fit the controller to the mains. Of course you can get a professional to install the whole lot - here is a list of recommended installers Australia-wide.  

Continuity Alarm A "continuity alarm" is provided free of charge in the kit so the integrity of your heating element is known throughout installation and until your bathroom fit-off is complete. When you receive the product it is a good idea to check the heating element (on a roll) with the supplied continuity alarm device. by connecting this to each end of the wire on the roll (they are conveniently exposed for checking you can verify before installation the element is intact and has not been damaged. This device should be used throughout installation and during the rest of the building phases in your bathroom so that it will alarm if there is any damage done to the heating element before the bathroom is completed.

Hubbs Review by Hubbs
Good quality product, easily installed and works as it should. (Posted on 15/05/18)
Good product Review by Withheld
We looked at a few options and this seemed best as it was NOT on the mats. This meant we could install it into the narrow spaces the mat systems could not go into. The installer agreed it was the most flexible system. It also has the best controller we saw and it is included in the price rather than extra. We received it same week which was very fast.

Simple, Easy, Cheap and Quality Review by Steve
I never thought a DIY job could be so easy! Everything that we needed came in the kit as well as very easy to follow instructions. We could have paid thousands for under-tile heating in our bathroom however now we can afford to purchase some luxurious products such as heated towel rails and accessories from no where else but the Renovator Store! Will certainly be spreading the word! (Posted on 27/02/15)
