Electric underfloor heating mats are an ideal solution for adding floor heating with minimal or no disruption.
The mats have an adhesive back and are fitted to the floor (ideally over insulation or ‘backer board’) before levelling compound and/or tiling. Various floor coverings can be used (see technical document) but tiles give the best performance.
Heating mats are designed for floor warming and may not supply enough heat for the room depending on heat loss. For full room heating and reasonable warm up times, you would normally require 30% heat input to the floor greater than the heat loss calculation for that room.
Additional heating may be needed if the system output is not sufficient enough. For efficient space heating, wet underfloor heating should be used - see our traditional underfloor heating kits and retrofit underfloor heating systems. If you are unsure, contact us for advice
