Can I use any thermostat w/timer for radiant floor heating?

I just received my radiant flooring and it just came with a standard thermostat. I would like to have the option of having a timer on it, so I can program it to turn on and off when needed. Can I go out and buy any thermostat/timer for the flooring?

Yes you can and you will save money on your heating bills. Make sure that it has an anticipator setting because the radiant heat tends to overheat at floor level while the wall thermostat (at eye level on the wall) is slower to sense the heat.

There are usually two thermostats that are furnished and need to be set for radiant heat. One is the usual air temperature wall one that you are talking about and the other is used to keep the floor at a steady temperature by sensing the temperature near the heat source.
