Electric Underfloor Heating Systems
Electric underfloor heating provides warmth throughout the entire room, giving a whole new meaning to heating and comfort. The increasing popularity of electric underfloor heating systems is due to their numerous benefits as a heat source:
- Suitable for every type of project: new build, refurbishment or renovation
- Compatibility with different floor types: including stone, tile, wood, carpet, vinyl, Karndean and Amtico
- Energy efficiency: requires less energy to run while producing even, comfortable, and radiant heat
Choose the best-suited system for your project from Warmup’s electric underfloor heating range, or get a free quote here if you would like us to point you in the right direction with your decision.
Electric Systems are ideal for:
Zones less than 270sqft but compatible with all room sizes
Single rooms but can b fitted over an entire property/ house.
Many still think (quite incorrectly) that underfloor heating is more expensive than radiators – a luxury that it is not accessible to everyone. Floor heating can be installed in both small rooms and very large projects and it brings you cost-savings on your energy bills making it affordable luxury, suitable for every project.
Warmup underfloor heating heats up significantly quicker than radiators due to the fact that less heat is required to bring the room to your comfort temperature (26-29 degrees). Radiators need to be heated to 65-75 degrees to achieve the same goal. This is because underfloor, or in other words radiant heating produces radiant heat that emits evenly across the floor making you feel comfortable in an instant, does not overheat a room which leads to wasting energy, and minimises heat loss.
Different Types of Electric Underfloor Heating Systems
All Warmup’s electric floor heaters use BEAB-approved, ultra-thin heating elements to quickly yet gently heat the floor surface. The heating wire with fluoropolymer coatings is ultra-thin at 1.8mm, and will not raise floor levels.
Electric Heating Mats
Warmup electric heating mats come in two forms; either in mesh form with a pre-spaced cable attached to it. Or, in the form of a heated decoupling mat in which heating cable is inserted and embedded amongst the castellations of the mat. The heat output of the heated decoupling membrane can be determined by the spacing density of the heating cable in the mat.
Warmup StickyMat heating mat is a super thin electric underfloor heating system that does not raise floor levels. DCM-PRO Heated Decoupling Mat is the newest innovation from Warmup, allowing for fast installation and protection of your floor covering, specifically tiles from cracking from the seasonal temperature changes in the subfloor.
The mesh-based heating mats come in two different outputs: 150W/m2 and 200W/m2. The higher output is designed specifically for high heat loss areas, such as conservatories. On the heated decoupling mat, the heat output varies depending on how you choose to space the heating cable
Warmup heating cables, Loose Wire and Inscreed Cable come without a membrane and specifically designed for areas where you have many fittings to work around or irregularly shaped rooms when installing underfloor heating.
The Loose Wire system is an incredibly flexible and durable cable that can easily be maneuvered around fixings. Loose Wire comes in a minimum heat output of 150W/m², but it’s variable depending on the spacing. The LWSWire system can be bought as an electric underfloor heating kit that contains the essential elements for its installation; the heating cable, primer, tape, roller anf foam and the installation manual. The Warmup Inscreed Cable is 6mm thick and is an ideal solution for heating screeded floors of any size. One of the most recommended screedings in the market to use are from Instarmac UltraFloor. Once installed, the heated screed can be covered with any flooring.
Warmup’s Foil Heater is designed for installation under wood and laminate flooring or under soft and resilient floor coverings such as carpet, vinyl, and other floating floor finishes. The Foil Heater system is especially suited for large and regular shaped areas. Foil Heater’s aluminum foil is apt to spreading the heat effectively and therefore the Foil Heater’s heat output of 140W/m² is adequate for heating needs.
Using Insulation Boards with floor heating significantly reduces the heat-up times and running costs.
Dual Overlay is a free-floating subfloor for use with carpet, vinyl, and linoleum floor finishes.
A thin polystyrene insulation barrier with effective acoustic properties to reduce contact noise. To be used with Foil Heater System.
