Electric underfloor heating pros and cons

Is electric underfloor heating right for your project? If you are looking to benefit from the feeling of UFH in a single, smaller room, then it could be.

Electric underfloor heating pros

  • Electric UFH kits are affordable, meaning you can enjoy the benefits of UFH in a single room without much upfront cost.
  • It provides a high heat output to warm hard floor coverings, such as tiles, in a kitchen or bathroom.
  • Electric UFH is simple to install and is fitted directly over the existing floor, meaning minimal mess.

Electric underfloor heating cons

  • It costs far more to run than warm water UFH. This is the main reason it is best suited to single rooms rather than a whole house heating solution. An electric UFH system can cost around 3x more to run than warm water UFH paired with a gas boiler.

Looking to install UFH in a large space, or in a few rooms? Warm water UFH is likely to be a better option.

How is ElectroMat® electric underfloor heating installed?

Here’s a quick overview of how ElectroMat® electric underfloor heating is installed:

Step 1: Prepare the floor and install the thermostat floor sensor.

Step 2: Lay the ElectroMat® de-coupling membrane over the floor using a flexible tile adhesive.

Step 3: Test the ElectroMat® heating cables, as instructed, and fit into the membrane by pushing into the channels in the matting.

Step 4: Fix the tiles in position using a full 5mm bed of flexible tile adhesive. 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 5: Repeat the cable testing and wire the neoStat-e thermostat (this must be done by a qualified electrician).
