Cost and Installation of Bathroom Underfloor Heating
The main consideration before installing underfloor heating is to ensure your subfloor is stable and rigid, preferably with insulation to prevent heat-loss downwards and retain the heat in the room for longer. If insulation is not present, insulation boards can easily be retrofitted, with only minor floor level increase.
Installing underfloor heating in a bathroom is far quicker than installing conventional heating systems such as radiators; the wire can be laid directly below the floor finish. Apart from a qualified electrician, no numerous tradespeople such as plumbers are required to finish work first before you can complete the installation of the heater. Underfloor heating can be installed effortlessly prior to the floor finish being laid.
The cost of installing electric underfloor heating in a bathroom is generally cheaper than more traditional forms of heating. Floor heaters are also much more energy-efficient than central-heating systems, running at lower temperatures whilst distributing the same level of warmth throughout the room. When using a Warmup system in your bathroom with one of our Smart Thermostats you can also expect to make big savings on your heating bills.
Heating Controls and Accessories
Underfloor heating can be controlled precisely by a thermostat in individual rooms – this results in lower running costs than centrally controlled heating systems. The Warmup thermostats are designed to measure the floor temperature not only to run the system efficiently but to provide your ideal temperature and a comfortable environment when required. The Warmup 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat comes with an app that can be downloaded on your smartphone for free and can guarantee a thoroughly automated heating experience while cutting down on your heating bills.
