Underfloor heating solutions
With improvements in efficiency and climate control in homes, underfloor heating has increased in popularity. GM Floor Screeds undertake the full supply and installation of underfloor heating systems and all of our systems are designed to CIBSE standard via our CAD engineers.
Underfloor heating is a series of electric wires and heating sheets that are installed beneath or within your flooring. They are usually placed on top of a layer of screed to ensure the surface is flat and a layer of floor insulation to ensure the heat travels upwards rather than down.
Installing underfloor heating
Once the floor has been removed and the insulation has been laid, the mats are then put in place. Along with this, we will also fit a floor sensor that connects to the thermostat so that you can tell what temperature the floor is running at.
The electric underfloor heating systems are then covered in a layer of screed that assists with insulation and helps the heat generate to be felt quicker. Once the screed is laid, you must allow it to dry naturally. This process should take no longer than 7 days before the under-floor heating system is then turned on.
Advantages of underfloor heating
There are many advantages to installing underfloor heating in your household. These include:
- Underfloor heating provides comfortable radiant heat from the floor which will heat the whole room far quicker than a radiator for a lifetime.
- When installed properly, underfloor heating does not require any maintenance.
- It is child friendly. This is because it is underground and therefore cannot harm or burn a child if accidentally touching it like a radiator.
- Can be controlled wirelessly by your smartphone or tablet.
