SunTouch is introducing a new line of controls for its floor warming systems.

Past News Releases


Watts SunTouch, the premier radiant floor heating technology company in North America, is proud to introduce its new line of controls for their heated floor systems--the SunStat and SunStat Pro.

SunTouch's new line of electric floor heat controls are designed in two easy-to-use digital versions, one programmable and one non-programmable. Both of the latest controls are dual voltage 120VAC and 240VAC, which make for a simple installation process. When creating these controls, SunTouch also implemented additional safety measures to ensure the SunTouch line holds up to its name and offers the safety that customers look for when purchasing a radiant floor heating system. For this reason, both the programmable and non-programmable heated floor system control have the GFCI built-in; as a result, these controls require no need for an additional GFCI breaker--something that many older homes lack.

In addition to the safety features that SunTouch has made available in their new line of controls, they have also made it their focus to provide a sense of "control" for the user. For instance, both controls within SunTouch's new line feature hold and setback buttons for a temporary override, while a keyboard lockout feature prevents unauthorized changes. As an added bonus, a large backlit display has easy-to-read numbers so regardless of whether it's day or night, the owner of either SunTouch control can determine quickly if temperature changes are needed.

They understand that heated flooring is a feature that many people are turning to as a means of providing warmth and comfort throughout their home, year-round. With the introduction of this new line of controls, users are able to experience an added degree of flexibility and energy saving functionality by choosing among either the newly designed SunStat or SunStat Pro.

The most obvious change in our new non-programmable control (the SunStat) is that it is now digital. However, behind the digital face of our new SunStat are nearly all of the same features as our new programmable model.

Unlike the digital non-programmable SunStat, the Programmable SunStat, called the SunStat Pro, has several additional features including 5/1/1 day programming that allows for energy saving control, four pre-set program schedules for easy setup, one user program schedule for customized programming, and a usage monitor that shows the hours of system operation.

SunTouch also has a SunStat Relay that can be used in conjunction with either the programmable or non-programmable control. Relays connect directly to SunStat thermostats for simple, elegant control of larger systems. With the SunStat Relay, it's possible to control over 1,500 sq.ft. of electric floor warming using 120 VAC, or for added coverage up to 3,000 sq.ft. for customers who use the 240 VAC floor warming mats or cables. All of this is made possible since up to ten relays can be used with one master control. By using the SunStat Relay, customers have the added benefit of zoning several rooms at the same temperature.
