ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT UNDER TILE HEATING
Under floor heating is regarded by some people as the ultimate luxury, yet these days more and more homeowners are finding that under floor Systems DO NOT Break the budget! It has taken 2000 years to wake up to under floor heating. The Romans may have pioneered it with wood furnaces.
If you are building or refurbishing your home, consider enhancing its value by investing in under tile heating, which is not that expensive. In fact, the cost of under tile heating is 65% lower than traditional methods.
Traditional heating systems warm the air immediately around the heat source and as the warm air rises, the heat is concentrated high in the room, while the floor stays colder.
Under tile heating systems utilize the floor slab as a heat reservoir, radiating heat upwards from the floor, resulting in a much more even heat distribution throughout the room, avoiding unhealthy pockets of hot and cold air which result in a cool ,unhealthy draft.
Our systems are easily installed between tiles and existing screeded surfaces and therefore operates very effectively. When installing Under-tile heaters, waterproof heating cables (1 to 1.5 mm in diameter) insulated with fluorocarbon and/ or heating resistant polymers are placed underneath the ceramic surface in a self-leveling screed, hardly altering the floor level. In addition, we make use of special alarm monitors to sound an alarm if the heating system was to be damaged while tiling.
