Electric Underfloor Heating Systems
Electric under-floor heating is fast becoming a popular form of heating, especially where cold surfaces such as tiles, stone and marble are used. They are currently used extensively in bathrooms, kitchens, conservatories and sun rooms - in fact it can be used in any room where a tile, stone, marble, wood or laminate floor is being fitted.
Electric underfloor heating systems (also known as electric UFH systems) have become more and more popular in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. There’s few home improvements that have such an impact in making your house a home during the winter months. For non-carpeted rooms with laminate, tiling, stone or marble flooring, underfloor heating takes away the chill and replaces it with a warm feeling of luxury.
