Types of Underfloor Heating

Wet Underfloor Heating

Water underfloor heating, also called wet or hydronic underfloor heating, is a highly effective and energy efficient way of heating your home.  A water underfloor heating system can be a great way to warm floors on a winter’s day and can sit beneath most types of flooring. Every system has its pros and cons. The water systems, compared with electric underfloor heating, are more complicated to install and a bit more expensive to buy.

However, as the system uses water, it can be linked to virtually any heat source, including gas-fired boilers, solar thermal panels and heat pumps. This makes it a highly versatile solution. which explains why it’s such a popular choice with owner-builders, plumbers and architects alike.

Water underfloor heating is a great way of saving energy and reducing your bills as it is a much more efficient heating system than radiators. The heating surface covers a much larger area than conventional radiators, enabling the system to work at lower temperatures and use a lot less energy, therefore saving you money!

Like electric underfloor heating, you can choose water underfloor heating as the primary heat source for your home or just to heat a specific space, such as a bathroom.

Electric Underfloor Heating

Electric underfloor heating systems are highly adaptable and can sit beneath stone, tile, wood or even carpeted floor types. It is usually placed on top of a layer of floor insulation. This is to ensure the heat travels upwards rather than down. This is first laid on a layer of screed (made of sand and cement) to ensure the surface is completely flat.

A series of electric wires are installed underneath or inside the floor finish provides the element that heats the floor. The heating wires are then connected to your mains supply, and it will also include a sensor to help regulate the temperature. You can then use a thermostat to control the temperature and pre-set the system to turn on or off.

We can supply and fit many electric underfloor heating kits to suit a range of projects. This includes loose-fit wiring for smaller & more awkward spaces as well as heating mats for larger rooms and modular systems and more. The design of your installation will depend on the spaces size and dimensions, how well-insulated the room is, and the types of floor structure and covering.

Electric underfloor heating is usually installed on top of a layer of screed to make sure the surface is completely level, and a layer of floor insulation to push the heat upwards rather than down, so you get the maximum benefit.
