Wait HOW long to use floor heat?!

Comments on this please:

"Why do you recommend I wait up to 28 days to use my new SunTouch system after the thinset, tile and grout are installed?

This is based on the recommendation of thinset and grout manufacturers. Their products require a curing period before the masonry reaches its full strength. This process cannot be rushed by heating and apparently, the process can be adversely affected by the modest temperatures of the heating wires if they are turned on before 28 days (according to the thinset manufacturers)."

News to me, and don't recall seeing anything about this wait on these boards in the many discussions of heat mats. Does everyone really wait to use their mats? This was in the FAQ section of one of the manuals online.
