New ColorTouch thermostats ensure warm, comfortable floors all winter long
ROSEMONT, ILL (November 25, 2019) -- While Smart Thermostats are compatible with most residential or commercial HVAC devices, they are not for use with electrical floor warming systems, leaving consumers to grapple with the limited capabilities of outdated controllers. To address this problem and ensure the most comfortable floors this winter, Emerson today introduced the Warm Tiles™ ColorTouch line of thermostats designed to control in-floor heating systems easily and economically, including a WiFi-enabled version that gives consumers remote access to their system from a web browser and an Apple® iOS or Android® mobile device.
New Warm Tiles™ ColorTouch thermostats come in two models: the ESW ColorTouch wireless thermostat and the standard ES ColorTouch thermostat. Both provide superior monitoring and regulating of Warm Tiles™ DFT, DMC, SAM, WTE floor warming systems, as well as 120/240V systems from other leading manufacturers. An integral relay switch offers universal compatibility with commercially available floor heating sensors, while the ColorTouch SetUp Wizard accelerates installations with step-by-step instructions. Whatever the flooring material - ceramic tile, porcelain tile, marble, granite, stone, laminate, or LVT tiles - the new thermostats achieve the desired temperature for total comfort and peace of mind.
Both the ColorTouch ESW and ES have an intuitive 3.5-inch touchscreen that puts the right amount of control at just the right location. The brilliant, backlit screen features high-contrast white characters against an adjustable black background for excellent readability in challenging lighting environments. By incorporating resistive technology into the screen, ColorTouch thermostats give users greater pointing precision with a lighter touch when navigating through the menus and changing the settings. In addition, for the wifi-enabled model, local weather information can be displayed with just a tap on the screen.
Flexibility is at the heart of Warm Tiles™ ColorTouch thermostats. Both versions support automatic changeover with programmability ranging from a single pre-set schedule to one customized for seven days per week with up to six time/temperature events per day. Additionally, a choice of three control modes are available to keep floor temperatures within their specified range. Users can also manually operate their thermostats to set their floor warming preferences "on the fly", whether for a few hours, a few days, a vacation or permanently.
The Warm Tiles ESW ColorTouch wireless thermostat allows consumers to remotely program their floor's temperature to match their schedule or for instance, turn the heat on before they arrive home so that floors are warm and cozy. It connects instantly to any standard WiFi without a hub. The user-friendly app lets users monitor and precisely control any Warm Tiles floor warming system from an Android™ or iOS™ Smartphone or tablet, or on a PC via the Warm Tiles web portal.
Being smart devices, ColorTouch thermostats have a self-learning adaptive function that will automatically change heating start times to ensure that the required temperature has been reached at the beginning of any specific event. After a few days, the adaptive function will have calculated how much earlier the heating must be switched on to achieve the desired temperature at just the right time.
Acting as miniature energy management systems, ColorTouch thermostats can track power consumption to provide users with insights for decision-making. An energy log graphically displays data from the past 24 hours, seven days or last 12 months. It can calculate the exact cost of electricity for any of those time frames- great for managing a home budget. An Open Window function prevents energy from being wasted by detecting a rapid drop in temperature and shutting off heating for 30 minutes.
