The system is particularly indicated for increase the living comfort and energy saving.
If correctly installed, there is little that can go wrong in an underfloor heating system, since there are no moving parts. Potential leaks are identified at an early stage through pressure testing of the pipes and dealt with prior to screening.
Underfloor heating heats the whole floor area you in which you live, much more effectively than convective heat. This generates the opposite heat cycle to that of conventional heat sources and results in warm feet and consistent room temperatures.
Freedom of Room Design
Underfloor heating gives you the freedom to design your room layout without compromise, having the flexibility to locate your furniture where you wish, suiting your lifestyle needs and not your heating system as no space is lost to radiators.
Unlike traditional convection heating systems which are often controlled by a single thermostat, a floor heating system provides the flexibility to control individual rooms via thermostats. These can be easily programmed to meet the demands of a particular area, instead of wasting energy and money heating areas of the property which are used less often.
Each window film can be applied to existing windows without having to modify or replace the window fixtures, or to interrupt the normal work activities.
Health & Well Being
An underfloor heating system produces less airborne dust than the amounts associated with radiators and convection currents. This is especially important for asthma sufferers and people who suffer with allergies.

How it Works
Electric underfloor heating is easy and cheap to install, and can sit beneath pretty much any type of floor, including stone, tile, wooden and even carpeted surfaces. Underfloor heating helps to keep floors and rooms warm, and offer a space-saving alternative to radiators.
There are two main types of underfloor heating: electric underfloor heating, which is also known as a dry system, and water underfloor heating, also called a wet system.
In an electric underfloor heating system, a series of electric wires are installed beneath or within your flooring. These are used to heat an area or room.
The electric system one installs will depend on the size of the room, how well insulated it is, and what type of flooring is used below and on top. Options include loose-fit wiring that is flexible enough to fit into small or awkward spaces, electric cable systems, or heating mats which one may roll out to cover larger areas.
Electric heating sheets or cables are fitted beneath the flooring, which you can do yourself. They’re placed on top of a layer of screed (to ensure the surface is completely flat) and a layer of floor insulation (to keep the heat travelling upwards).
Our qualified electrician will connect your system to your electric mains supply, and fit a sensor that connects to the thermostat. This allows you to control the temperature and pre-set the system to turn on or off.
