Electric Underfloor Heating Mats

Underfloor heating mats are designed to be installed under any floor covering of your choice to provide a highly economical and efficient way of heating your home or buisness. Using a thin cable attached to a mesh on a roll makes installation quick and easy, especially for large floor areas.


Uheat electric underfloor heating mats can be used with a wide range of floor types, including tile, laminate or engineered wood, carpet, stone and almost any other floor finish you can think of. Additionally, they are energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, which is essential when we consider our carbon footprint.

Are Underfloor Heating Mats Expensive to Run?

Electric underfloor heating runs on electricity, so the running costs are determined by the electricity tariff in the property you are installing it in. Water underfloor heating tends to be cheaper to run than electric, however it is important to take into consideration the installation costs of both systems.

Another factor to take into consideration is electric underfloor heating systems will not be efficient if you don't insulate your property correctly. If your property suffers from high heat loss, any heating system will not be efficient and will cost you more to run.


Electric systems also have no moving parts to wear out over time, meaning less costs on maintenance and are also unlikely to fail.

Are Underfloor Heating Mats Any Good?

Underfloor heating mats are perfect for all heating applications. Whether you are trying to take the chill off of your floor tiles (also known as the warm floor effect) or using them as a primary heat source. Uheat offers mats from 100W to 160W and 200W, which are ideal as either a secondary or a primary heat source. Underfloor heating mats are also thinner and easier to install than wet underfloor heating systems.

What is the Downside to Underfloor Heating?

Installing underfloor heating can be expensive and complex depending on the room layout and design, especially if you are not already doing work to replace your pre-existing floor.


The good thing is that underfloor heating mats can be installed easily by a confident DIY'er, providing the final connections are done by a qualified electrician and that the mats are constantly checked during installation. Underfloor heating can also take a bit longer to heat up a room compared to other heating systems, and can also raise the height of your floor.
