Before anything, here is why underfloor heating is the best option:

1. Saves Money: It’s more energy-efficient. That means lower bills for you!

2. Even, Consistent Warmth: No more hot and cold spots. Just a nice, even blanket of toastiness wherever you roam.

3. Fits Any Style: You can have it under tiles, wood floors, you name it! Your style, your choice.

4. More Space: No bulky radiators eating up your walls. More room for activities!

Picking the Right Underfloor Heating System

There are two main types: electric and water-based (hydronic). Electric is easier for smaller areas, while hydronic is great for heating your whole home. Think about your space and budget to decide which one’s right for you.

Getting Ready for Installation

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Check Your Subfloor: Make sure it’s levelled and crack-free. If not, get a pro to fix it up.

2. Insulate: Adding insulation underneath will keep that heat where it belongs – under your feet!

3. Moisture Barrier: Depending on your floors, you might need this to block any dampness from creeping in.

The Installation Steps

Here’s how to do the underfloor heating installation and get the underfloor heating up and running:

1. Lay the Heating Elements

For electricity, you’ll spread out the cables or mats evenly, securing them in place. For hydronic, it’s all about those heated water pipes connected to the manifold thingy that controls it all.

2. Pour the Liquid Screed

This liquid cement (called liquid screed) is way better than regular concrete. It self-levels and dries super flat – perfect for your new warm floors! The good folks at UK Screeds have tons of options to choose from.

3. Install Your Flooring

Once that liquid screed has fully dried, you can put down your fancy new floors right on top! Tile, wood, you do you.
