Electric Underfloor Heating

Unlike wet systems, electric underfloor heating can be retrofitted into properties and fitted in a short space of time. Loose cable and heating mat systems are flexible and can be laid around obstacles or in areas where extra heat is required. There is no need to run them under kitchen units or beneath a bathroom sink.

Heating mats or cables should be fitted onto a base of insulation to encourage the heat to rise upwards. This insulation is fitted onto a flat base such as stable floorboards or a screed bed. The heating system is then covered with the desired flooring and associated fixings e.g. tile adhesive.

Underfloor heating is also laid at ground level and causes no obstructions within a room so furniture can be placed against any wall. The cables conduct heat outwards, dissipating it evenly around their surface. The heat gradually rises up through the floor covering and disperses into the room providing a comfortable, uniform heat spread.

Underfloor heating prevents dust circulating unlike radiators.

Radiators use convection to heat the room, circulating warm air and causing dust to be dispersed too. Underfloor heating prevents dust being circulated into the space and once a system is fitted there are no ongoing upkeep costs.
