With so much choice on the market, deciding which underfloor heating system to choose for your customer’s project can be difficult.
Here are few questions to ask before you choose a system:
1. Which room is the underfloor heating going to be in? e.g. bathroom or kitchen.
2. How big is the room and is there any fixed furniture e.g. a sink or kitchen units?
3. Is the system being retrofitted onto an existing floor base? Or is it for a completely new room such as an extension or conservatory?
4. What is the floor base underneath? It might be wooden boards, concrete or old tiles.
5. How will the underfloor heating be used – to warm the floor alongside central heating or heat the whole room?
The answers to these questions will help to determine if the most suitable option is heating mats or loose heating cables.
CORGI’s 150W/m2 Heating mats can be fitted directly under tiles and are ideal for simple, standard shaped spaces such as a galley kitchen or square bathrooms.
Whereas heating cables are better suited to more complicated rooms where they may need to be fitted around fixed furnishings or placed into odd shaped spaces. Loose cables can be quickly installed into bathrooms with chimney alcoves or around a fixed island in a kitchen.
