WHAT IS ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING?

Underfloor heating systems can sit beneath stone, tile, wooden or even carpeted surfaces – will help to keep cold floors and rooms toasty, and can offer an alternative to using radiators to deliver central heating.

Electric Underfloor Heating explained

A series of electric wires are installed beneath or within your flooring as a means of heating an area or room – a cold, tiled bathroom floor, for example. The electric underfloor heating system you install will depend on the size of the room and the type of flooring it has – options include loose-fit wiring flexible enough to fit into small or awkward spaces, electric cable systems, or heating mats you can roll out to cover larger areas.

Electric underfloor heating comes in two forms, underfloor heating mats and cables. The cables run around the room underneath the sub flooring, whilst the mats are placed in specific areas of the room where people are most likely to stand or sit.

How electric underfloor heating works

The electric heating sheets or cables are fitted beneath the flooring, which you can do yourself. They’re usually placed on top of a layer of screed (to ensure the surface is completely flat) and a layer of floor insulation (to keep the heat travelling upwards rather than down).

A qualified electrician will need to connect your system to your electric mains supply, and fit a sensor that connects to the thermostat. This allows you to control the temperature and pre-set the system to turn on or off. We would also recommend seeking professional advice on what system to use and how to prepare the floor.
Different electric underfloor heating systems are compatible with nearly all flooring types. If you’re unsure, consult a professional to advise on the best product for your room and flooring.
