What is Electric Floor Heating or Underfloor Heating?
Electric Floor Heating is simple. It works by using the floor as a giant radiator. Plastic tubes are laid out on the wood sub-floor and then embedded in lightweight concrete, or in the case of concrete slab-on-grade construction, the tubes are embedded in the concrete. Warm water supplied from a boiler circulates through the network of tubes gently warming the floor. The warm floor then radiates to all objects in the room.
Electric underfloor heating for all types of floors
Electric Heating is an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly floor heating solution. It is flexible for new builds and renovation for both wet and dry installation.
Quick responding heating systems are easy to control. They enable great comfort and convenience with their user-friendly navigation providing long-lasting effect according to the highest-ranking quality standards.
Electric Heating can be utilized as comfort heating (as an additional heat source) or as the primary heat source.
The Electric floor heating system consists of two main components:
Heating element (cable, thin heating mat, or heating element for laminate floors, etc.)
A thermostat with air or/and underfloor temperature sensors
Choosing UFH-Compatible Floor Finishes
Underfloor heating works with almost any type of finished flooring, but there are some materials that are better at holding and transferring heat than others. Tile and stone have a high thermal conductivity which means the heat created by the system beneath it will transfer to the surface quickly. In addition, they can be heated to a higher temperature which might be important if your basement has a high ceiling. You could also consider a concrete floor finish which helps create a stylish and modern finish in basement refurbishment projects or natural wood flooring for a more traditional style.
Cost of Underfloor Heating
Due to their energy-efficient technology, floor heaters offer lower long-term running costs than traditional heating systems – significantly reducing the cost of your energy bills.
Electric floor heating systems are an affordable way to bring radiant warmth to your home whereas water systems may cost more to purchase and install but their unique design means they can provide even lower long-term running costs.
The cost of installing underfloor heating is dependent on a range of variables, from the system you have chosen and the size of your project to your location and the rates of the tradespeople in your area.
