What are the types of underfloor heating?
- In slab:As the name suggests this is added as the concrete slab is being poured. Slabs are generally 150-250mm in depth.
- Screed:Sits on top of your slab and offers increased heat up times and increased efficiencies due to only heating a 50-70mm screed compared to 150-250mm slab.
- Minitec: Also sits on top of your slab but only takes up a very small layer of space and is the ultimate retrofit option. The total build up of floor is 20mm which makes it perfect for retrofit options.
- Heat Emission Plates: Sits on top of timber floor joists. The aluminium sheet distributes the heat to the timber or concrete floor on top. Perfect for 1st floor installation.
Also known as in-slab hydronic heating this is the perfect ‘silent’ and gentle heating solution for your home.
Advantages of Underfloor heating
