Why have underfloor heating?
Most of us are used to standard radiators and assume they do the job of heating spaces reasonable well, but they are in fact inefficient and wasteful and have high running costs. Not only do they use a great deal of energy to heat up once the thermostat is switched on, but they also emit heat in a small area of the room, leaving “cold-spots” and creating uneven room temperatures.
Why use Ambient underfloor heating?
Ambient Underfloor Heating Systems all use non-corrosive, flexible heating elements with a low profile allowing them to easily be installed directly underneath floor finishes. Electric underfloor heating systems use far fewer components and are much simpler to install than plumbed-in (hydronic) systems.
Installing underfloor heating
Electric Underfloor Heating is usually installed on top of a concrete or timber substrate, underneath your desired floor finish. A layer of insulation should always be included to minimise downward heat loss and maximise the efficiency of your electric underfloor heating system.
