Hidden GFCI

Recommended Posts

I've always been of the understanding that a GFCI is required for electric heating under ceramic tiles.

I did a new home recently with bathroom floor heating and for the life of me couldn't find the breaker.

After some research I was informed by a SCO that newer systems may use a GFI protected thermostat that replace GFCIs at the panel.

What's the general concensus here?

Are we cutting corners?

or is it not an issue?

I've never even heard of that before. If that's someones' made-up BS, its very impressive. Anything's possible though.

How about that, great find Terence

It looks exactly like the one I saw a few days ago, and priced reasonably I might add.

I'll have to 'inspect' the thermostats more closely next time, if I can ever figure out how some of them work.

Thanks much for your research
