Installing Electric Underfloor Heating
Underfloor heating is usually installed on top of a concrete or timber substrate, underneath your desired floor finish. A layer of insualtion should always be included to minimise downward heat loss and maximise the efficiency of your electric underfloor heating system. You can tile directly over the top of our Thermonet and Vario electric underfloor heating systems and if you require timber, carpet or vinyl flooring simply apply a 10mm layer of self levelling compound before laying your desired floor finish.
There are systems available that are specdifically designed for use under laminate flooring. Our Thermofoil Underlaminate Heating Foil is less than 1mm thick and will add that warm comfortable feeling to an engineered timber floor. We are also able to supply under-carpet heating mats to go between the underfelt and the carpet. Contact our friendly team for more information.
In screed systems are also available from Thermogroup. Thermoduo in Screed Heating Cable is designed for installation at the same time as the concrete floor or can be laid on top and screeded over. We also supply a 10W system for use in suspended timber floors.
Electric Underfloor Heating on Concrete and Timber Substrates
Creates a perfectly even spread of radiant heat
With a traditional heating system the top of the room is usually over heated to allow the lower parts of the room to reach a comfortable temperature. Electric underfloor heating radiates heat evenly upwards from your floor. This creates the perfect spread of heat, or "heat signature", throughout your room resulting in increased comfort and energy savings.
