5 Reasons to Install Electric Underfloor Heating
There are many benefits for deciding to go ahead and install Electric Underfloor Heating in your home – but here at VPS UFH, we decided to compile our very own Top 5:
1. Electric Underfloor Heating is very easy to install
Unlike wet systems, electric underfloor heating can be installed and fitted in a short space of time, in fact some projects can be done as DIY without the need for an electrician at all. Just time and patience required.
Loose cable and heating mat systems are very flexible and are designed to go around obstacles like sofas in the living room or kitchen cabinets for example. No need to be crawling into very tight spaces.
2. Electric Underfloor Heating can be easily retrofitted
Unlike Wet Underfloor Heating systems, new subfloors are not required.
In order for the heat to rise upwards, the heating mats or loose cable system should be fitted upon a layer of insulation. The UFH system is then covered with your chosen flooring and any associated fixings. An electrician can then install your chosen Smart thermostat and connecting it to the mains supply.
3. Electric UFH is both safe and comfortable
Heat from underfloor heating systems is much more comfortable and evenly spread compared to that of a traditional radiator – the air is fresher and more oxygen rich, plus there is no need to worry about the little ones hurting themselves on a hot radiator.
4. Electric Underfloor Heating works with all floor types
Regardless of the type of floor already in your home, be cement, laminate, wood, tile or stone – rest assured that the underfloor heating system you choose will work with it. More information on floor types compatible with Underfloor Heating Systems
5. Electric UFH Heat Mat Systems are virtually maintenance free
Once a system is fitted there are no ongoing upkeep costs. Our electric underfloor heating systems come with Lifetime Warranties.
