Electric Underfloor Heating
Electric underfloor heating mats are ideal for larger spaces and make installation as quick and easy as possible. Our electric underfloor heating kits are ready to install and can be installed by both DIY and professionals.
Electric Underfloor Heating
Electric underfloor heating loose cable kits allow for greater flexibility when it comes to the layout and design of your underfloor heating. If you have irregularly shaped rooms with obstacles in the way, loose cable is a great solution.
Electric Underfloor Heating Cable
with Decoupling Membranes
Using a decoupling membrane with underfloor heating cables allows for quick and easy installation. Using decoupling membrane allows you to evenly space out the cable and also doubles up as an isolation membrane. This helps prevent cracking in the tile or other flooring surfaces caused by the expansion and contraction of the subfloor as it heats and cools.
Electric underfloor heating is ideal for small rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms. Kitchens and bathrooms tend to have hard floors which can feel very cold underfoot especially with bare feet, which makes electric underfloor heating a great option.
Electric underfloor heating warms an area using a heating wire that is placed under your floor, which then radiates up through your floor surface to warm up your room. This is all controlled using an underfloor heating thermostat, which offers options from simple manual dial control to WiFi control via your smartphone.
The electric underfloor heating system you install will depend on a few factors: the size of the room and how well insulated it is, what the flooring below is like, whether it is insulated, and what type of flooring you'll have on top.
Electric underfloor heating is highly efficient, with a 100% efficiency rate at the point of use. Since the generated heat is exactly where it is needed, there is no need to transport energy, resulting in every joule of energy being utilized for heat. As a result, every pound spent on running electric underfloor heating is fully converted into heat where it is needed.
|Underfloor Heating System||Suitability||Running Cost||installation time & cost|
|Warm Water Underfloor Heating||It can be used for all types of projects, including new construction, renovation, and single rooms.||Low running costs.||Higher upfront cost compared to electric, but is cheaper to run. Installation time varies depending on the project.|
|Electric Underfloor Heating||Recommended for use in smaller spaces, like a bathroom, due to running costs.||More expensive to run than water underfloor heating systems.||Installation is easier, can be installed in a single room in only a few hours.|
Underfloor heating mats are the most popular electric floor heating system. The mats are simply rolled out, cut and turned to suit the shape of the floor, with the added feature that the cable can be removed from the mat for those really awkward obstacles.
This system is ideal for kitchens, living rooms and conservatories. Power outputs are typically 100w, 160w and 200w.
Our comprehensive range of aluminium heating mats are designed to be installed under engineered woods, laminate floors, carpets and vinyl floors.
The 500mm wide foil heating mats are fully earth screened and fully comply with the current electric & building regulations.
Decoupling floor heating systems solves 2 complications in one solution. Combining a decoupling mat (sometimes called anti-crack / uncoupling mat) with a heating cable.
The result is a faster to install solution which normally saves time and money.
Loose wire systems are the perfect solution for more awkward floors with obstacles, such as bathrooms.
The cable is supplied on a drum and when installed is spaced evenly over the floor, this offers the flexibility to negotiate obstacles and space the cable evenly, no matter the shape of the room.
These cables are typically used for new builds, extensions and conservatory projects, as they are only suitable if you are installing a new floor screed.
In screed cables installed directly on your rigid insulation (e.g. Celotex or Kingspan) and covered with a floor screed compliant with building regulations (50-65mm)
