Electric Underfloor Heating

Looking for a solution to keep your space warm and cosy? Look no further than our wide range of electric underfloor heating solutions. They can suit most floor coverings, whether it's tile, laminate, wood, lino, vinyl, or carpet

Why Choose Electric Underfloor Heating?

There are many benefits to choosing electric underfloor heating for your home, such as:

  • Even heat distribution: Electric underfloor heating warms up the entire floor area, eliminating cold spots and creating a cosy and comfortable environment. It also frees up wall space typically used for radiators and can be installed under almost any floor.
  • Energy efficiency: Electric underfloor heating uses less energy than conventional heating methods such as radiators, as it operates at a lower temperature and heats up faster. You don’t need to keep your heating on for long periods of time to feel the warmth. It is considered a more environmentally friendly option than radiators due to its heating method.
  • Zero maintenance: Electric underfloor heating is very reliable and durable, as it has no moving parts that can wear out or break down. Once it is installed correctly, tested, and commissioned, you can register for a lifetime guarantee, giving you peace of mind that you won’t need to worry about maintenance or repairs.

Features of Our Electric Underfloor Heating:

  • Ultra Thin Cable (2mm Cable Diameter): Our system uses the thinnest and highest quality heating cable on the market, which is discreet and flexible, and can be easily installed on the floor without any major floor excavation or plumbing work.
  • Minimal Floor Height: The ultra-thin cable also ensures that the system has a minimal floor height, which means that you do not have to worry about any door or furniture clearance issues or any changes to the floor level or appearance.
  • IPx7 Rated: Our system is waterproof and safe to use in wet areas, such as bathrooms and kitchens. You can enjoy the comfort and convenience of a warm and dry floor, even in the most humid and moist environments. The IPx7 rating also means that our system is durable and reliable, and can withstand spills or leaks.
  • Lifetime warranty (50 years): Our system comes with a lifetime warranty, which covers 50 years of use. This means that you can have peace of mind and confidence in the quality and performance of our system as long as you follow our installation and maintenance guidelines.

Choosing Your Electric Underfloor Heating Solutions

We offer 3 types of electric underfloor heating systems: Sticky Mat, Loose Cable and Foil Mat. All of them use the highest quality ultra-thin heating cable from Fastwarm®. The Sticky Mat system consists of pre-spaced heating elements on a self-adhesive mesh, making it easy to install. The Loose Cable system is ideal for irregular-shaped rooms, as you can adjust the spacing of the heating elements to fit the area. The Foil Mat system is designed for floating floor finishes, such as laminates and engineered wood flooring, as it provides even heat distribution under the floor surface.

Electric Underfloor Heating Sticky Mats Kits

Sticky Mats are designed to make installations easier with heating elements already spaced out and ready to lay. They have 3 power outputs per square metre: 200W, 150W, and 100W, allowing them to be used as either a sole or supplementary heat source. Sticky Mats are typically used under tiled or stone floors; however, when installed within a levelling compound, the 150w system can be used under a wide range of floor coverings, including laminate (floated), engineered wood (floated or glued T&G), carpets with underlay (max tog 2.5 combined), lino, vinyl (LVT).

Electric Underfloor Heating Loose Cable Kits

Our Loose Cable systems are ideal for awkwardly shaped areas, such as bathrooms. When laying the system, the output is determined by the spacing between the cables: 50mm (200W), 65mm (150W), and 100mm (100W). The Loose Cable system is best used under stone/tiled floor finishes, however, when the power output is 150W, the system can be covered with a 10mm bed of levelling compound and therefore can accommodate a wide variety of floor coverings, such as laminate (floated), engineered wood (floated or glued T&G), carpets with underlay (max tog 2.5 combined), lino, vinyl (LVT).

Electric Underfloor Heating Foil Heating Mats

Foil Heating Systems use a twin conductor cable enclosed in foil matting. They have a power output of 140W per square meter, ideal for floating floor finishes such as laminates (floated) and engineered wood flooring (floated or glued T&G). They can also be used beneath the vinyl (LVT), linos and low-tog carpets (2.0 Tog max.) when covered with our HeatPak Dual Overlay.

Where to Use Electric Underfloor Heating?

Electric underfloor heating is especially suitable for small to medium-sized rooms up to 20-25 square metres, renovations or retrofits where minimal floor disturbance is required, rooms with irregular shapes or hard-to-reach areas, and rooms with wooden or laminate floors.

Electric underfloor heating is a comfortable and efficient way to warm your floors and rooms, as it is suitable for any structural substrate and most floor coverings. However, it may not be the best choice for large rooms or entire properties, where water-based systems may provide greater energy savings and lower operating costs.

How to Install Electric Underfloor Heating?

Installing electric underfloor heating is simple and straightforward, as it requires minimal disturbance and disruption to your existing floor. Our systems use a 2mm Teflon-coated multi-strand conductor, which is installed beneath the floor finish. This means that you don’t need to dig out your subfloor or raise your floor levels significantly.

We provide downloadable full instruction manuals so that you can easily follow the steps and complete the installation yourself. However, you will need a qualified electrician to connect your heating cable to your property’s electrical circuit to comply with UK building regulations.
