What System to Choose?

Underfloor heating is increasingly popular in bathrooms and suitable for both new-builds and renovations. Dependant on your project, both water and electric underfloor heating can be installed in bathrooms, wet rooms, and showers. Water systems are usually installed within the floor construction when a property is built. Electric underfloor heating can also be installed when renovating your bathroom making it a popular option with bathroom refurbishments.

Electric Underfloor Heating Systems

No matter what shape or size your bathroom is, Warmup’s wide range of products covers a system that is specifically designed to suit your specification. Learn underneath more about the different systems to find your best solution.

Loose Wire System >

If you have an irregularly shaped bathroom (not a square or rectangle shape) with numerous fixed obstacles such as a toilet, sink pedestals and baths, choose the Loose Wire heating system due to its ability to be maneuvered around all fixed objects with ease. Learn more about the Loose Wire system >

StickyMat System >

The StickyMat System is ideal for installations within regularly shaped areas, where 0.5m wide mats can be quickly rolled out across the subfloor. The heating cable in the StickyMat system is so thin that installing it under the tiles will raise your floor height only very minimally. Learn more about StickyMat System >

DCM-PRO Decoupling System >

DCM-PRO Heated Decoupling System is a new electric underfloor heater from Warmup with unique features, designed especially for under tile heating. DCM-PRO is easy and fast to install on the subfloor and its patent pending self-healing decoupling layer protects the floor finish from seasonal changes that may cause cracks in the floor finish.

Floor Covering

Tiles are the most commonly used floor surface in a bathroom. However, not all underfloor heating systems are equally good to be installed with tiles. Tiles are particularly prone to experiencing small cracks and gaps due to the seasonal changes in the subfloor; the subfloor expands during summer and contracts when it is cold. On the back of extensive R&D Warmup has designed underfloor heating systems with different floor surfaces and their specific qualities in mind to not just efficiently heat the floor but to protect it from circumstances such as subfloor movements. Out of all Warmup systems, the DCM-PRO Decoupling System is designed to heat and protect tiles.

If your desired floor covering for a bathroom is not tiles, Warmup has a recommended underfloor heating solution for most of the floor types whether stone, wooden, laminate or even carpet.

Cost and Installation of Bathroom Underfloor Heating

The main consideration before installing underfloor heating is to ensure your subfloor is stable and rigid, preferably with insulation to prevent heat-loss downwards and retain the heat in the room for longer. If insulation is not present, insulation boards can easily be retrofitted, with only minor floor level increase.

Installation

Installing underfloor heating in a bathroom is far quicker than installing conventional heating systems such as radiators; the wire can be laid directly below the floor finish. Apart from a qualified electrician, no numerous tradespeople such as plumbers are required to finish work first before you can complete the installation of the heater. Underfloor heating can be installed effortlessly prior to the floor finish being laid.

Cost

The cost of installing electric underfloor heating in a bathroom is generally cheaper than more traditional forms of heating. E.g. a 4m2 of electric matted underfloor heating with a thermostat would only cost from £160.
