Advantages of Underfloor Heating
Electric underfloor heating provides the best results when used beneath tiled or stone floors, as these transmit heat to your room very quickly. It is always best to install suitable insulation materials directly beneath underfloor heating as these help provide maximum efficiency and minimise heat loss through the ground. Heat Mat underfloor heating provides a constant heat output which is spread over the whole floor area, and is thermostatically controlled in each room. It is recommended that underfloor heating systems are not fitted below refrigerators, freezers or food cupboards as they will needlessly heat the areas above them. Heat Mat underfloor heating can also increase the value of your home and when an energy report is produced, the system and its insulation may be taken into account as an energy efficiency measure.
Our underfloor heating insulation is economical as it can significantly reduce the amount of energy lost in a home. Solid concrete floors are one of the key reasons for heat loss in British homes. The installation of insulation not only increases energy efficiency, but it can also prevent damp problems which can emerge from condensation. When fitting Heat Mat underfloor heating, it is recommended that you also review the insulation of the entire property for maximum benefit.
