How To Measure Up For Electric Underfloor Heating

The Rule Of Thumb

What to consider with Electric underfloor Heating

First things first. Determine your final floor covering i.e; tiles, wood, laminate or carpet. Now that you know your floor covering you can choose the appropriate heating system.

Measure out the length and width of your area and multiply these to get your meterage squared. Then do the same with any fixed objects in the room and subtract these from your total square meterage, this gives you your total area to heat.

Your insulation will need to cover this entire area as to maintain a level floor. However we would recommend leaving about a 100mm border around the outside of your room for the heating, but any where from 70-90% of the area would be considered a primary heat source.
