Electric Underfloor Heating
Underfloor heating can be used in various settings, including homes, offices, and commercial buildings. It is particularly useful in bathrooms and kitchens as it provides a warm surface for bare feet and reduces the risk of slips and falls.
Energy efficiency is one of the main advantages. The heat distributes evenly throughout the room, resulting in less heat loss through walls and ceiling, and less energy is required to maintain a comfortable temperature. Additionally, these heating systems can be easily controlled and adjusted using a thermostat, which allows for optimal temperature control and energy savings.
To install this type of heating, the heating elements must be laid on top of a subfloor and covered with a layer of insulation. Flooring surfaces, such as tile or hardwood, are then installed on top of the insulation. Some systems can also be added to existing buildings in retrofit projects.
This type of heating system can be integrated with other smart home systems and automation, such as Wi-Fi thermostats, to make it more convenient to control and monitor.
