Hello-

I am trying to install a UK 240/50 resistance floor heating wire kit in a 220/60 American electrical setting. I don't foresee the difference in voltage being an issue with the wire, however perhaps the cycle (HZ) difference might affect the thermostat? I wanted to check here to see if anyone had any insight in to this conversion. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Jolie.

Chances are you have 240 not 220. I would take a close look at the thermostat and check the ratings on it. Otherwise the cable won't care about the hz, might have to purchase a different stat.
