Heating laminate floors
Laminate and engineered timber floors are becoming more and more popular because of their eco credentials and the natural look and feel of a wooden floor. Thermofoil PRO brings the ease and simplicity of electric underfloor heating to laminate flooring. The foil heaters are approximately 2.5mm thick providing a streamline heating solution suitable for both new build and refurbishment projects. Thermofoil PRO can also be installed under other floating floors such as vinyl and carpet, when used in conjunction with Econospeed HDF overlay system.
Simple cut and return installation method
Thermofoil PRO is a very flexible underfloor heating solution as the mats can be cut carefully to fit your room configuration. To get around fixed objects such as kitchen islands and sanitary ware, you can simply cut the aluminium foil and arrange the mat and cable around the obstruction. When using this method you must take care not to cut the cable and also ensure all loose sections of cable are covered with aluminium tape. Download the installation guide for more details.
Electric underfloor heating can be the most efficient way to heat your home and is suitable for both new build and retro-fit projects. A well insulated electric underfloor heating system controlled by a zoned heating schedule can cost as little as 3.5p/m2 a day* and is much more efficient that heating the whole house with a central heating system.
Electric underfloor heating systems are an efficient, cost effective solution for home owners, land lords and businesses looking to save money on heating and energy bills. Find out more about electric underfloor heating runing costs.
The advantages of electric underfloor heating
Underfloor heating is not a new idea. It was widely used by the Romans and although effective, it was labour intensive, expensive and time consuming to set up. The concept has been around for centuries and has developed from the original fire powered systems to hot water based systems, right up until the ultra-thin electric underfloor heating on the market today.
The majority properties are still heated with convection radiators. Convection heating creates drafts and heats the top of the room to a much higher temperature than at the floor. This results in an uncomfortable and uneven spread of heat.
Thermofoil electric underlaminate heating creates a comfortable, even heat by gently warming the room from the floor up, effectively using your entire floor as a low surface temperature radiator. Electric underfloor heating eliminates the need for wall mounted radiators and gives you full freedom to design your room exactly the way you want to.
