Bathroom / Wetroom / En-Suite
If you’re renovating your bathroom, wet room or en-suite, you may be wondering whether installing underfloor heating is worth the investment. While at one time bathrooms were purely functional, these days they have taken on a home-spa ambience. More people than ever before are heading to their bathroom to unwind and relax at the end of the long day, and one way to improve your space and make it even more comfortable and welcoming is to install underfloor heating.
Floor heating doesn’t just take that unpleasant chill off your floor tiles when you step onto them in the morning but it also adds a touch of pampering luxury that’s hard to beat. Of course, there’s also another added advantage to bear in mind too – floor heating systems can even increase the value of your property.
Typically underfloor heating is installed in a bathroom, wetroom or water closet when they are being refurbished. With this in mind, the easiest method is to install a very thin electric underfloor heating system.
Which Heating System Is the Best Choice?
Underfloor heating can be installed in all types of wet room, bathroom or en-suite in both renovated properties and in new-builds. If yours is a new-build property, you can benefit from a water heating system while if you’re renovating your existing home, electric underfloor systems are the best option for you.

What Are The Benefits Of Underfloor Bathroom Heating?
Installing heating under the floor of your bathroom is a much speedier alternative to installing a conventional heating system like a radiator since the wire can be directly laid below your floor finish. There’s no need to wait for a plumber to complete their work before you install the heating system and it can be effortlessly installed before the floor finish is laid.
It’s also usually cheaper to install an electric underfloor heating system in your bathroom than a traditional central-heating system. It will also be more efficient since it will run at a lower temperature while still ensuring the same amount of warmth in the room. When paired with a smart thermostat it’s possible to make a saving on your home energy bills.
