The control of the FeelsWarm countertop heater is very simple. It is designed to produce a set temperature that is 20-25 degrees above the room/stone temperature when plugged into 120V household power. 

Countertop Heaters are easy to control

Included with each FeelsWarm mat is a low-voltage power transformer (6-24 volts depending upon size) that plugs into a standard outlet to power the heater. At most, the transformer will draw 2.2 amps and does not require any special wiring. 

Included with each custom mat is a Thermal Controller which enables the user to lower the temperature of the counter if desired and to quickly turn the unit on/off. A controller is not included with FeelsWarm’s standard (non-custom) heaters, but can be purchased as an optional add-on item.

It is most common for homeowners to leave the heating mat running at all times. Therefore, the transformer and controller are typically installed within a cabinet or in a non-visible position.

A Surface Prep Kit is needed if the underside of your stone is not smooth granite. (Any quartz, marble, wood, rough granite and other surfaces where pressure sensitive tape does not bond well). The peel test strip (included) can be used to evaluate whether the surface of the stone will need the prep coating.
