    • Underfloor heating generates less air movement therefore less dust flecks are hovering around. This is fantastic for anybody that suffers with allergies.
    • The carpets will remain dry at all times because the heat comes from the floor. The chance of getting bugs and the growth of bacteria in bathrooms is hugely eradicated.

      Any kind of moisture from damp shoes, clothes and umbrellas in the hall way and laundry areas will dry up quickly, which is particularly advantageous during winter months and cold periods.
    • Underfloor heating cables are a lot smaller compared to water pipes and don't have to be fitted as deeply into the floor. So, floor heating installation is no way near as invasive and has less installation issues and impairment.
  • Invisible heating:
    • With underfloor heating the heat source is invisible. Without radiators blocking up walls, you don't have to compromise on the décor and design of your room or on the furniture layout that you want. You start with a cleaner, more stream-lined room.

    • This type of heating is especially child friendly because there aren't any warm surfaces and sharp corners to cope with.

    • Cash saving:
    • DIY underfloor heating is straightforward and simple to install and doesn't involve difficult parts. You don't need to hire costly engineers so the expenditure is not high. Each electric connection has to be done by a suitably qualified individual.
    • There are no continuing costs because there are no parts that move that undergo any wear and tear to.
    • Electric floor heating is capable of being fitted close to floor surfaces; therefore it heats the room up a lot quicker. This means that it is inexpensive and you're able to get comfy more quickly.

How does it work?

Electric systems are just used for heating and utilise adaptable heating components that do not erode, plus cables, pre-formed cable mats, bronze mesh and carbon films. They are capable of being fitted in a thermal mass or exactly under floors because of their low outline.

Electric systems can make the most out of electricity meters and are regularly utilised to heat:

  • Carpet Floors
  • Vinyl Floors
  • Laminate Floors
  • Tiled Floors
  • Wood Floors
  • Shower Floors

Electric systems are much easier to fit and contrast compared to Warm Water Systems. Certain electronic systems utilise the voltage provided by a power line at the point of usage, whilst others utilise the voltage less than the required voltage to work a device or circuit. An electric systems power usage is based on wattage output generated by the heating part and not the voltage itself.

It has very quickly been accepted that Electric underfloor heating is an incredibly reliable and cost-effective way of warming offices and homes. Nowadays, it provides the best possible comfort settings, in addition to being very economical too. Actually, electric systems are able to help you to meet the energy saving obligations of Part L of the Building Laws. Moreover, certain thermostats and our insulations boards can increase the likely energy savings by a further 20%.
