Floors can get very cold, especially when the temperatures drop and they’re not comfortable to walk on. Underfloor heating is the best solution for that because not only does it keep your floor warm, but it keeps your home warm as well. The heat radiates off the floor and spreads throughout the room. At CTM Flooring, we recommend this system to all our clients who wish to renovate their floors.
What is Underfloor Heating?
As the name suggests, underfloor heating is a heating system that’s installed under the surface of your floors. You won’t be able to see the system, just feel the warmth it emits, so it is more discreet than other heating systems available today. The floor is heated to a comfortable degree and the heat radiates through the room.
Where Can You Install It?
This system is very versatile and can be installed in any room, office, or space where there are walls and floors and this includes:
- Bathrooms and Toilets
- Living rooms
- Children’s rooms and Playrooms
What Kind of Floors it Can Be Used In?
This system can be used in different kinds of floors. Some property owners will install it in the subfloor but that’s not the most popular option, especially if your subfloor is already installed. Here are some floors under which we can install the heating system:
- Tiles and Ceramic Floors – These floors get cold very easily, which makes them great for summers, but not so great in winters. Underfloor heating will ensure these surfaces are warm and comfortable for you. The system is placed on the floor and the tiles are installed directly above them.
- Carpet – Carpets are already known to be one of the cosier feeling floor coverings, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it even cosier. Underfloor heating is like an electric blanket for your carpet. It is installed between your underlay and the carpet so the warm up time is very quick, resulting in economical running costs.
- Wood Floors – Wood gets warm easily and is very comfortable. When we install underfloor heating in wood floors, we make sure that the timber is suitable for this purpose. We won’t recommend the system if your existing wood floor won’t withstand heat well.
The underfloor heating system can be installed in all kinds of floors, including laminates and vinyl. If you want to know more, you should contact us and speak with our experts.
