Electric Underfloor Heating

Nu-Heat electric underfloor heating kits

When to choose electric underfloor heating

Electric underfloor heating can offer a viable alternative to warm water underfloor heating systems in smaller, individual rooms, where a designed system is not required, and where higher running costs are not prohibitive. Suitable scenarios include bathroom or wet room renovations, or smaller, well-insulated kitchen areas. For larger kitchens or open-plan living spaces, please see our range of warm water underfloor heating kits.

Nu-Heat’s new ElectroMat® solution is an easy-to-fit electric underfloor heating kit for floor areas of up to 18m2.

What is ElectroMat®?

An ideal solution for bathrooms and wet rooms, our ElectroMat® electric underfloor heating kits are fully waterproof and provide a stable surface for tiles floor finishes.

Electric underfloor heating cross section

ElectroMat® underfloor heating kits are specifically designed for single rooms or areas of up to 18m2. Consisting of a patented de-coupling membrane and underfloor heating cable, ElectroMat® delivers an even heat across the entire floor area, and provides a stable, waterproof surface that is particularly suited to bathroom and kitchen areas. Floor sensors ensure protection for sensitive floor coverings.

ElectroMat® benefits

  • ElectroMat® de-coupling membrane neutralises movement between the substrate and floor finish preventing the delamination and cracking that can be associated with tiled floors
  • ElectroMat® is totally waterproof, and by using sealing tape on edges and gaps you can create a wet room quickly and easily
  • The cavities below the ElectroMat® membrane create space for water evaporation, making it possible to install on substrates that are not perfectly cured
  • ElectroMat®’s pyramid cavities evenly distribute concentrated floor loads from the tiles, directly onto the floor substrate

 

Installing ElectroMat®


Step 1: Prepare your substrate and install thermostat floor sensor inside the supplied conduit.Step 2: Apply the ElectroMat® de-coupling membrane to the substrate using a flexible tile adhesive.

 

Step 3: Test the ElectroMat® heating cables, as instructed, and lay into the membrane by pushing it into the channels in the matting. Observe the recommended spacing of 3 dimples.

Step 4: Waterproof the installation using flexible waterproof adhesive and ElectroMat® fixing tape.

 

Step 5: Fix the tiles in position using a full 5mm bed of flexible tile adhesive. Alternatively, if using other floor finishes (such as laminate, engineered board, vinyl or carpet) cover the floor with a 10mm layer of flexible self-levelling compound.

Step 6: Repeat the cable testing (this testing allows registration of warranty). Wire the neoStat-e thermostat; this must be done by a qualified electrician.

Performance – heat output

ElectroMat® offers an impressive heat output of up to 150W/m2, when paired with highly conductive floor finishes such as natural stone and tile.
