Electric Under Tile Heating
Electric Under Tile Heating is a great way of heating your ensuites, bathrooms and powder rooms. This ensures that these rooms are controlled independently to the rest of your hydronic heating system. The electric heat mat is rolled out on your flooring and a 10mm screed is poured to create a heat conducting surface. The screed then acts as a radiator that heats your entire floor and the room that it is in. This makes it warm under the feet as well as warming the room to the desired temperature. This is all controlled by a thermostatic controller that can be highly programmed to meet your heating needs.
- Ideal for your Ensuite and Bathrooms
- Run Independent to your Hydronic System
- Warm Floors During Warmer Months
What is Electric Mat Heating?
Electric heat mat is a product that is made up of a thermostat, power cable, heat trace wire and sticky positioning mesh. Electricity is used to power the heat trace wire which warms your flooring. We recommend a 10mm screed over the top to ensure the best performance as the screed acts as an ideal heat conductor for transferring the heat from the electric mat to your floor and room.
Is it a DIY product?
Electric Heat Mat is very easy to install. Simply role it out ensuring that the main cable is beneath where you want the thermostat to be installed which is usually near the power point for access to mains power and for easy use. We highly recommend a 10mm screed then be poured over the top. The screed will ensure you have a great heat conductor. You can then install your preferred floor finishing. We recommend polished concrete, tiles or an engineered board. Your flooring provider will be able to advise you also. The positioning mesh can be cut as it is only there to make it easy to lay the heat trace wire which actually provides the heat. We supply a test kit with each mat so that if it is damaged during install you don’t find out after you’ve laid everything over the top of it. If the heat trace wire is cut then you will need to replace the product.
What does it cost to run?
While actual operating costs are going to vary greatly we can tell you that electric heat mat draws around 150W’s per square meter. The thermostat is also highly programmable with up to 6 segments for each day ensuring that it can be run as efficiently as possible.
