Bathroom Underfloor Heating Installation
A bathroom underfloor heating installation can be either water or electric.
An electric underfloor heating system utilizes a network of electrical wires that run just below the ground to warm the floor. However, this type of underfloor heating does not warm the floor as effectively; therefore, it is most often utilized in smaller spaces, such as the bathroom.
There are two main electric underfloor heating options: cable systems and flexible wire systems. Cable systems span larger areas with little effort, while flexible wire systems are usually more beneficial for smaller rooms or areas.
Installing electric underfloor heating requires removing the existing floor, which necessitates the assistance of a professional electrician to safely access the mains supply. It also requires screeding the floor, which may also require a professional to ensure the proper levelling.
