A Warmup electric floor heater is a great way to bring energy-efficient warmth to your home and can help you save money on your heating bills too. In this guide, we’ll look at the costs involved in specifying a system for your home. You’ll learn more about: 

  • The benefits of electric underfloor heating

  • The costs of installing a new floor heating system 

What are the benefits of electric underfloor heating for a property?  

Underfloor heating uses radiant heat technology to gently warm the people and objects in a room from the ground up – a process that uses much less energy to reach optimal temperatures than central heating systems, which focus on just warming the air of room. 

Our electric floor heating systems are perfect for renovation projects, providing an affordable heating solution for any room in your home whilst offering quick installation times. Warmup electric heaters are split into two categories: electric floor heating mats consist of electric heating wires fixed within a prepared matting so they can be simply rolled out onto the subfloor while heating cable-based systems utilise loose heating wires to be installed by hand, allowing a more bespoke installation.  

Will an electric heater save you money? 

Underfloor heating provides quicker heat-up times and operates at lower temperatures than traditional heating systems whilst still retaining the same level of warmth. Due to this innovative energy-saving technology, a floor heating system can help save you money on your heating bills

The exact running costs of an electric floor heater in your home will vary on your home’s design, its insulation levels, your energy usage and your energy provider. But with rapid heat-up times, warming a small bathroom in time for your bath or shower may cost just a matter of pennies each day. Want to find how much money you can save with underfloor heating? Use our online energy cost calculator to find out the precise running costs of a Warmup system for your home.  

You can dramatically increase the energy performance of a floor heating system and reduce its running costs even further by controlling it with a Smart Thermostat and by installing high-quality insulation alongside it – which will improve the responsive of the system and assist in preventing heat from escaping the room. 

Electric UFH systems also offer the great benefit of being compatible with solar energy; powering your heating with a solar PV system offers a zero-carbon, ultra low-cost heating solution for your home.

 How much will an electric system cost to purchase?

We offer a wide selection of heaters to suit any budget, with some heaters starting at just £ 14.58 /m².

The price of purchasing an electric heater for a kitchen 

If you’re considering a floor heating solution for a tiled kitchen floor, then our DCM-PRO Heated Decoupling System is a great choice. This system has been specifically designed for use with stone and tiled floor finishes as its anti-facture membrane helps protect them from potential cracks that can be caused by lateral subfloor movement. In our blog post on the costs of buying kitchen floor heating, we explore how much you can expect to pay for DCM-PRO in a kitchen with a heated area of 5m². To buy the UFH system alongside its accompanying insulation materials and Smart heating controls will cost £577.56 + VAT. 

The cost of electric UFH for a bedroom 

Bedrooms are perfect for heating with a floor heater – bringing gentle warmth to the most relaxing space within your home. In our guide on the best heating options for bedrooms, we provide a thorough breakdown of the pricing for a complete electric floor heating solution for an average-sized bedroom. Here, our Foil Heater is selected as the perfect system to use in a carpeted bedroom with a heated area of 8m². Including all of its accompanying components – its insulation and heating controls – the total cost of purchasing the system would be £929.00 + VAT. 

How much a bathroom heating system will cost to buy  

Bathrooms are a very popular room to heat with underfloor heating. As these rooms are often the smallest in a home, fitting a floor heater will save you valuable space and due to the presence of water in the room, floor heating will make ensure that your bathroom floors are not only warm to the touch after a refreshing shower but will also dry quicker too. Our guide on choosing the best floor heating solution for bathrooms outlines the costs involved in specifying a heater for a small bathroom with a heated floor area of 4 m². In this, we illustrate that you can purchase a complete bathroom system with insulation and a Smart thermostat for just £409.10 + VAT. 

What are the installation costs of an electric UFH system? 

The price of getting a system installed will depend on your project’s needs, your location and the tradesperson hired. We recommend that your new heating system is always fitted by a fully qualified installer who has worked with underfloor heating before. As they provide rapid installation times, electric systems will be cheaper to install – you can expect to pay an installer anywhere from £200 – 300 a day for their services and many electric heaters can be installed in smaller rooms in just one day.
