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 custom heater is a Thermal Control Unit (TCU) and a low voltage power transformer (12-24 VDC depending upon size) that plugs into an outlet to control and power the heater. The TCU enables the user to lower the temperature of the counter if desired and to quickly turn the unit on/off. A Thermal Control Unit is not included with FeelsWarm’s standard (non-custom) heaters, but can be purchased as an optional add-on item.

The controllers are typically installed within a cabinet or in a non-visible position because it is rarely changed once a desired temperature level is arrived at.  Click here to see a 2018 survey of TCU usage by FeelsWarm customers.

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.
