Electric Underfloor Heating
Underfloor heating is a popular alternative to conventional radiators when heating a home and electric underfloor heating can safely be used in wetrooms and bathrooms, making it an ideal choice. Electric underfloor heating typically warms the room more quickly than radiators and does so at a lower temperature, which can save you money on your heating bills. This form of heating is even more efficient if it is installed on top of insulated tile backer boards, which reflect the heat upwards and minimise heat lost through the subfloor.
The self-adhesive electric underfloor heating mats sold on Tile Fix Direct are easy to install and ideal for use under tiles in wetrooms. By following the manufacturer’s instructions, a competent DIYer should be able to do most of the installation if they choose. However, a qualified electrician must carry out any electrical work, which must conform to current IEE wiring regulations and is subject to Part P of the building regulations.
