    Hi,

    Is it allowable to install an underfloor heating thermostat inside the bathroom but outside any of the listed zones? We are having a room converted into a bathroom and there is no suitable place directly outside the room to install it, however the new bathroom itself is about 3m x 3m and there is plenty of room inside. If this isn't possible the only other location would be in another bedroom adjacent which is a bit daft!

    Am I correct in thinking it could be placed at least 600mm from the sink, near the doorway and away from any other sources of water. The sink would be the closest source of potential splashing.

    Thanks

    You should also ask the manufacturer if it’s suitable for that sort environment.

    Yes. If it is outside of Zones and has 30ma RCD protection (Additional Protection) then it is fine with the regs.

    However, as Midwest says above, check with manufacturer if the the thermostat itself is suitable for environment first.
