A far cry from traditional underfloor heating, heated flooring combines energy efficiency with convenience and cost-effectiveness.

PROMOTIONAL FEATURE

Time and cost-effective home building and renovating solutions aren’t always about cutting corners. Sometimes it’s about applying a genius idea. Heating pre-installed in a floor is one such idea.

Here are four ways that heated flooring can revolutionise your project…

Easy installation

Heated floors such as those from Fast Fit Heated Flooring are supplied designed to you or your architect or builder’s specifications. They’ll design the flooring to suit your home layout with efficiency and heat distribution in mind.

As the vast majority of work is done at their workshop rather than on site, the ‘kit form’ floor is easy to assemble and install, cutting down on project time. Such is the ease of installation, it can be fitted by an enthusiastic DIY’er, with a professional only needed for connection to the heat source.  

Cost savings

There are numerous savings to be made with this method of heating your home. First and foremost is the impact on the rest of your project. Because so much of the heated floor is delivered pre-assembled and to your specs, you don’t have to pause all your other work while it’s installed.

You’re also ticking off two elements of your self-build in one go – this is the flooring and heating combined.

Importantly, this isn’t an addition to the floor – it is the floor. Traditional underfloor heating can often have a knock-on effect as the increased height can mean doors need to be adjusted and floor transitions from one room to the next realigned.

Eco-efficiency

Whether it’s a new build or a renovation project, it’s important to consider the environmental impact of your home. Eco housing is increasingly attractive for many and this method of underfloor heating is more energy efficient than most.

As it’s embedded in the floor itself, you don’t have to heat through a layer of screed and the floor itself to feel the benefits. It heats up quickly and only needs lower boiler temperatures – another cost saving in addition to reducing the environmental impact.

Wave goodbye to radiators

There are aesthetic benefits too. Underfloor heating, whether it’s in a kitchen, bathroom or elsewhere, will allow you to rely less on radiators. That gives you more freedom with room layout and means you can truly maximise your space – with the added bonus of no hot pipework for children to hurt themselves on. It’s comfort with care.
