Electric underfloor heating: Which is the best system to use?

You might have recently been looking into electric underfloor heating and feeling a little overwhelmed with all the choice out there.

You’re not the only one. There are a huge variety of brands all offering kits at a range of different prices, which is why here at the Underfloor Heating Store we’ve come up with an at-a-glance breakdown of three brands to choose from. Take a look and take inspiration to kick start your search in selecting the most suitable electric system for you.

One of the best-known underfloor heating brands, Devimat™ comes highly recommended by tradesmen everywhere. The mats are incredibly thin which means they can be easily used with tile flooring that can be laid directly over the top. Devimat™ systems also come with floor and air sensing and timer thermostats to give you complete control over your heat settings.

Prowarm™ systems are available in both loose cable and heat mat kit varieties, so you can choose the right solution for your needs. Rooms that are an awkward shape might not be suitable for a heat mat kit and so loose cables will allow you to install underfloor heating in those fiddly corners.

Prowarm™ heat mat kits work best when paired with the correct underfloor insulation and are so easy to install you can do it yourself! The systems also come with a Cable Safe Guarantee, which means they are guaranteed to last a lifetime and work using advanced Teflon technology. Plus, they are constructed using multi strand wires that are extremely tough.

One of the leading brands on the market, Warmup is a popular electric system used regularly by tradesmen. Available in loose cable, heat mat, underwood foil heater and inscreed heating systems you can find a suitable solution for every room and flooring.

Warmup also offers a lifetime warranty on its loose wire and underfloor matting heating system, so you have peace of mind that should anything go wrong you’re covered. Don’t forget to opt for a thermostat to pair with your system; Warmup thermostats are available in a variety of colours to complement any home.

Whatever system you choose it’s always a good idea to remember that underfloor heating is a cost efficient way of keeping your home nice and toasty. Electric underfloor heating systems are a little more costly to run compared to their wet counterparts but they will save you money when it comes to installation because they do not require piping and plumbing work.
