Benefits Of Electric Underfloor Heating

May 2018

A significant benefit of choosing electric underfloor heating is that it is surprisingly easy to install. Preparation for installation can be carried out by any competent DIY enthusiast and would only require professional help from an electrician during the final installation, testing and connection of the underfloor wiring.

Using one of our quality underfloor heating thermostats, you will be able to control the heating mats swiftly and efficiently with a quick warm-up time and optimised running costs. Your floor heating thermostat works in an almost identical way to your central heating clock timer - simply program it to run at the times you want it to be warm! As the heat is spread uniformly across the entire floor you can then use a moderate temperature rather than a high setting to provide consistent heat throughout the room.

Using Ambient Electric’s underfloor heating mats in your home will provide adequate heat throughout without cold-spots or the need for regular maintenance associated with traditional radiators systems which rely on a boiler. Depending on the specification, our heating mats can provide sufficient heat to be the sole source for most rooms in your home. They can also be used under a range of floor types including tile, vinyl, laminate, wooden floors* and carpet.

* Maximum wood thickness 18mm, or warm up time will be slowed and heat output greatly reduced.

Overall Electric underfloor heating is more efficient than other forms of electric heating and most other convection systems as 100% of the electrical energy is turned into heat. To give an indivcation of running costs you could expect to pay as little as of 1p per square metre, per hour of heating. Therefore, a 10m² squared area bathroom could cost 10p per hour of heating using underfloor mats. Assuming the heating is on for 2 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the evening, it would cost approximately 50p per day, or roughly £15 per month. (based on 2017 average UK electricity prices).

How Easy Is It To Install Electric Underfloor Heating?

May 2018

Increasingly more popular year by year, people are opting to buy electric underfloor heating to warm their homes. All over the UK, particularly in existing properties, electric underfloor heating is installed easily without requiring any serious construction work.

It may initially seem daunting to consider installing an electric underfloor heating system into your property, however installation is surprisingly simple. Underfloor heating distributes heat evenly which makes it perfect for home extensions as well as kitchen, conservatory and bathroom refurbishment projects. It is also a great space-saver removing the need for traditional wall-hung radiators. We recommend professional advice should you feel unsure about installing electric underfloor heating; If in doubt it is always best to speak with the experts who know exactly what they are doing!

An electric underfloor heating installation project uses a series of cables or underfloor heating mats that run beneath your flooring surface. We recommend using floor heating insulation beneath the heating elements in order to reflect the most heat efficiently upwards while it is being produced.

A loose wire installation gives you the freedom to tailor the system to fit your room perfectly, especially for unusually shaped spaces. The more usual method is to use the pre-wired heating mats. For examples, please view our selection of Ambient Electric Heating supplies. For an existing property, an underfloor heating specialist will charge on average around £200 per day with individual rooms being completed in around a day. The typical overall cost of installing a good quality system with insulation board beneath in an average conservatory would be around £700. A whole house renovation project with under tile mats would typically require 4-6 day’s work at a budget cost of £2500-£4000. We are here to advise with any electric underfloor heating project, so please call one of our experts for a free, friendly consultation.
