Electric Underfloor Heating – The best system for you.

Date Published: June 10, 2014

Once you have decided that electric underfloor heating fits the needs of your project, you’ll need an overview on the various systems we have to offer.

In this article we will be covering:

  • Loose Cable and Cable Mat systems
  • Carbon Heating Film and Heat-Pak
  • In-screed Cable

There are a few things to take into consideration when deciding which system to use, for example, the Carbon Heating Film is best suited to go under a laminate or wood floor. The Carbon Heating Film in conjunction with the Heat-Pak, however, can be used underneath a carpet or vinyl floor finish.

The Cable Mat system is primarily used for under tile heating in larger areas due to its easy to roll out nature, while the loose cable is easier to lay inside small, irregular areas such as bathrooms and wetrooms.

Depending on the project specification, our range of tile backer board insulation may be required prior to insulation.

Carbon Heating Film

Our Carbon Heating Film system is designed for installation directly beneath wood or laminate floors. The film is laid over our 6mm Depron Foam insulation underlay to give a minimal effect on your floor height.

Because of the bespoke nature of this system we require a floor plan before order. We cut each individual element to size to give you the maximum coverage possible.

Carbon

Carbon Heating Film with additional Heat-Pak

Heat-Pak is our dual overlay MDF board. If the Heat-Pak is laid directly over the Carbon Heating Film in place of a laminate/ engineered floor, then Vinyl or Carpet may be laid over the top, this increases the entire floor height of the Carbon Heating Film system to 14mm (see below).

Loose Cable

Our loose cable system is idea for installation in smaller, awkward shaped areas. The cable can go directly onto the sub-floor or be laid on top of our 6 or 10mm insulation board.
Our cable systems are designed for installation under tile / stone but when covered with an encapsulating layer of latex leveling compound (screed) they can go under any floor covering.

 

Cable Mat

The Cable Mat is our cable system pre-attached to a fiberglass mesh for ease of installation in larger, open plan areas.

The Cable Mat is 500mm in width and comes in various lengths, it can lay directly to the sub-floor or on top of one of our insulation boards if necessary.  You can view our installation videos here.

In Screed Cable

Our in-screed cable typically sits in a 40 – 75mm screed. This is ideal for new builds and extensions. Our in-screed system acts as a storage heater, heating up the entire slab through the off-peak hours of the night and keeping the heat throughout the day.

Underfloor Heating Under Wood

Date Published: May 12, 2014

Wooden floors (laminates, engineered, etc) have always been common in both new developments and refurbishments.

The many benefits that wood flooring provides (acoustic properties, long-lasting and warm to the touch) can be taken even further with our bespoke, dry-lay Carbon Heating Film.

Varme Element Layout

Not only is the Carbon Heating Film easy to install, made to measure and thin enough to only increase floor height by 7mm. It also comes with our state of the art thermostat and floor sensor to ensure your wood flooring does not go over the safety limit (as per manufacturers guidelines) of 27°c.

Made to measure

We cut each individual element to size as per the plan provided in order to achieve maximum coverage. We then supply you with an element layout (see above) for approval.

This is one of the reasons the Carbon Heating Film system is so easy to install.

Our underfloor heating Carbon Heating Film system is well suited for wood floors and will allow you to enjoy the natural floor finish to its fullest.

Electric Underfloor Heating in Wetrooms

Date Published: February 14, 2014


Can I install Electric Underfloor Heating in a Wetroom?

Yes, it is not only a great idea it is as if they were made for each other!

Not only does it give you the comfort of a warm floor, it also speeds up the drying time of the floor to prevent the risk of slips.

Although you may not think it, wet rooms are a logical choice for electric underfloor heating. It can be used as a primary heat source or just to take the chill off the tiles and unlike traditional radiator heating, underfloor heating is invisible and does not detract from the interior design of your bathroom.

Electric in a Wetroom?

Our 3mm loose laid heating cable is fully waterproof and extremely flexible meaning it can be easily installed around the drain. With a dedicated earth braid this also makes it one of our safest systems.

Which System?

Date Published: November 13, 2013

As the title suggests, this weeks blog is about which system is right for you.

Before we start, we need to know the final floor finish (Tiles, Laminate, Carpet, etc.) in the area to be heated, the system chosen will depend on this.

Under Tile

Our cable systems are designed for under tile heating.
You have two options:

Both of these are the same system, but the cable in the cable mat kit is pre-attached to a meshing to allow ease of installation in larger areas.

The loose cable is the same cable but supplied loose on a drum. The loose cable is more convenient to lay in small areas such as bathrooms due to their awkward shape.

Varme Under Tile Heating

Under Wood / Laminate

Our Carbon Heating Film is designed for installation directly beneath wood or laminate floors.

Carbon Floor Build up

For this system, we require a dimensioned plan of the area to be heated as it is a bespoke system and the heating elements are cut to size.

We will supply you with a full element layout to make installation quick and easy.

Under Carpet and Vinyl

For underfloor heating under carpet and vinyl, the carbon heating film will be used but with an additional layer of our Heat-Pak dual overlay board (4mm top board and 3mm base board).

The Heat-Pak lays floating over the top of the standard carbon system which allows you to lay your carpet or vinyl floor covering.

Underfloor Heating Running Costs

Date Published: October 28, 2013

You may have seen this phrase on our FAQ page:

‘a 1kw system will cost approximately 40 pence per day, based on an average house with an average level of insulation and set on the default thermostat settings’

We realize this could be confusing at first, so please read below where we go into more detail.

A 1kw (1000 watt) system

If you have browsed our site you may already know that we have more than just a single product.

There are many different products that can be used to heat your floor, and they each consume different amounts of power.

A standard Carbon Heating Film system will be 130 watts per square meter. This means on average a 1kw carbon heating film system will be 7.5m2 of underfloor heating covering up to a 9m2 area.

A standard Cable Mat system will be 150 watts per square meter. On average, a 1kw Cable Mat system will be 6.5m2 of underfloor heating covering up to an 8m2 area.

The standard thermostat settings

When we say ‘based on the standard thermostat settings’ we are referring to our FH-01 digital, programmable thermostat and the factory settings it comes with.

The settings are as follows:
08.00 – 21 °C (Wake)
09.30 – 16­ °C (Leave)

16.30 – 22 °C (Return)
23.00 – 17 °C (Sleep)

So, at 8.00AM the system comes on at 21 °C.
At 9.30 AM the system drops to what we call a setback temperature of 16 °C.
Then at 4.30 PM the system increases in temperature up to 22 °C.
Until 11.00 PM where it maintains a setback temperature of 17 °C until the process repeats.

To conclude, on average, a 7m2 underfloor heating system (covering 9m2) that comes on for 8 hours a day at 21 / 22 °C and has a setback temperature throughout costs only 40 pence per day!
