What types of heating systems are there, how does it work and where can it be used!

It can be used virtually anywhere you want radiant heated floors...literally. Both water and electric, the electric underfloor heating type is easily adapted without changing your existing floors.

There's no need to dig anything up or alter your home in any way. It's normally fitted in 1-2 days and is ready to walk on as soon as the flooring is laid.

NO WAITING TIME...and the result is warm feet...always.

Heated floors are like having a floor size radiator, which makes the idea of NOT having a radiator on the wall appealing for both warmth and comfort as well as being able to use furniture against every wall!

Systems can be used.....

Ceramic tile flooring
Slate flooring
Stone flooring
Wood flooring
Laminate flooring
In screed
In concrete

Other uses are;

Animal care in kennels and veterinary care / Stables / Workshops / Nurseries / Plant care and greenhouses / Outbuildings and garden rooms / Loft conversions / Garage conversions / Conservatories / Elderly care / Infant care...the possibilities are endless.

Here are the main types of electric underfloor heating and their uses

In screed cable heating
6mm twin conductor cable to be laid in concrete or screed and in particular below thick stone flooring.

Under tile cable
3mm twin core heating cable on a drum or sewn onto a rectangular mat for heating under tile, slate or stone.

Carbon mat heating
0.3mm carbon heating film used under wood or laminate which can also be laid between joists.

Depron insulation (6mm)
Used in conjunction with carbon mats to provide maximum heat retention to laminate or wood.

Marmox insulation boards
Used with under tile heating to provide maximum heat retention to tile, slate or stone. In sizes from 6mm-50mm depending on your requirements.

Why insulate?
Here are some guides to warm up times.

With tile backer board.....15 to 30 minutes
On timber floors.............30 to 60 minutes
Insulated concrete.........120 to 180 minutes
Un-insulated concrete.....120 to 300 minutes

It makes sense to have insulation fitted!
We always fit this at the time of installation.

We supply all of the above with a fully programmable thermostat which works independently of your existing heating system.
An example of this would be that you could leave your central heating system OFF but just leave the underfloor heating system ON in your conservatory or bathroom!

One important thing to remember is that you don't have to alter your existing heating or plumbing in any way and the cost of running a system when installed correctly, should prove more cost efficient and comfortable than waiting for radiators to send warm air rolling around your room.

This type of efficient radiant heating has now brought comfort to all types of flooring where the possibilities until recently were very limited, now they appear to be limit...less.

The comfort level is hard to explain but was brought home to me by clients living in a remote farmhouse, who gave me the 'opportunity' of "sort out this cold floor or the place is going up for sale".

Not one to be put off by a mere challenge(:-( )I decided that now was the time to introduce this new system called 'underfloor heating'.
You see until then we hadn't thought of using it because 'it was new'.
Why do we always think like that?

To cut a long story short the problem was solved, I was able to supply and fit a system with laminate flooring, the customer was over the moon and I left the job with my fee, a dozen eggs AND a bottle of wine!!!

My initial interest was 'fuelled' not so much by the work being completed as it was, but more the response from a totally happy customer who'd decided that they would even sell their home if we couldn't achieve what seemed 'unachievable'.

Since those early days we've gone on to fit systems under tiles, stone, laminate, wood, slate...etc.
When we return to take photos we're ALWAYS welcome and the family, pets included are all sat on the floor 'enjoying the warmth and comfort'.

Ideal for;
Bathroom flooring, conservatories, dog kennels, garage conversions, loft conversions plus many more applications.   

Whether you want to buy the underfloor heating and me install for you or you want me to supply and fit, I'll call anywhere in the NP and CF post code areas and work everything out for you, leaving you with a fixed free quotation.

Mike says

"We've always had the objection to having tiles in areas of high use because 'it's too cold' until underfloor heating came on the scene...what a breakthrough, radiant underfloor heating at an affordable cost.
Since the electric type was shown to us we started to promote and at least quote for every job with the possibility of underfloor heating being used. Our success with this 'new' addition has meant we've secured work where we might have initially lost out to 'carpet or something warm'.
I remember the first installation we did in a bl**dy cold farmhouse where the alternatives were 'solve the cold problem or we're moving'.
Needless to say...nobody moved, we left the customers with smiles on their faces and I personally went away with a bottle of wine and a dozen eggs as well as our fee!!!.
It's so cost effective and simple to run, it should be in every home, we've fitted it under laminate floors in our new extension bedrooms, I'll ask my children if I can take it away from their new bedroom floors!!!!! "

If it helps in any way to decide where you go next please take a look at the customer comments and see what they've had to say about the quality of work.

A note from Mike
The kitchen design was 'stunning' and I was fortunate enough to be called in to 'complement' the kitchen with my tiling.
I was made welcome by the customers and I would highly recommend Ikea Kitchens without hesitation.



Very many thanks for carrying out the work at Victoria Mews, Cardiff...
It all looks great in the pictures you sent us by email...
Thank you also for liaising with your electrician Simon Webb on my behalf, for the other work we needed at the house.
