Economical Electric Underfloor Heating
Economic comfortable and safe heating beneath your wood, laminate or tiled flooring is the ultimate floor luxury. Thermatec provides electric floor heating for conservatories, living rooms, kitchens, and offices. In fact any room where you intend to install laminate or real wood flooring.
The heating and Depron insulation is only 6mm thickness and sits directly beneath your wooden flooring directing the heat upwards. The result of using this type is that the whole floor area is heated, not just the area adjacent to a fire or radiator. Because more of the floor area is being heated, a lower temperature can be used making a healthier environment and reduced energy costs.
The electric underfloor heatingwill only work effectively if it is directed upwards instead of back down through the sub-floor.
Our Strata XL (10mm) and Strata SL (6mm) tile backer boards for underfloor heating are a high specification economical insulation. It is easily installed by bonding to the sub-floor with flexible tile adhesive. Alternatively by screwing securely into a wooden sub-floor.
The boards are lightweight and easily cut with a Stanley knife. They have an extremely high compressive strength and thermal insulation values that equal or exceed the specification of any other Tile Backer Board currently available.
The heating system is controlled by an electic flush fit wall mounted underfloor heating timer/ thermostat which allows you to set the heating times and adjust the temperature of the room to an optimum comfort level.
Our Flexel system for stone and tiled floors operate in a similar way, but require a thicker gauge of insulation. The ‘Ecoflex’ electric heating for stone and tiled flooring comes in the form of a 3mm cable attached to a fibreglass mesh. This comes in set lengths on a roll, so you just need the square meter size of the room and then select the nearest sized mat size below. Correct insulation is essential to obtain the true comfort and energy savings of the ‘Ecoflex’ cable mat system.
Made To Measure Systems
Our Thermatec wood floor heating systems are available made to measure in our workroom. We can ensure that even the most awkward shaped room can be accommodated.
We need the position of the supply point, and then all that is required is a 2-wire connection through an R.C.D. into the timer/thermostat and from there into the supply.
Because the heating mats are all wired in parallel, the amount of cabling is minimized. There are no connections to make the mats. No cutting, planning or terminations are needed. You simply open out the heating over the insulation, and it will fit the room exactly. Because our planning department is highly skilled at designing the heat mats, far more of the room can be heated. As you are heating more floor area, the heating can run at a lower temperature resulting in increased comfort, a lower energy consumption and less stress on your wood or laminate flooring .
Ecoflex and Thermatec are controlled independently of the main heating system. Each area of heating is controlled by the elegant and simple Aube timer/thermostat that offers total control and comfort, 7 days a week
Both these systems can be ordered online for fast free delivery within the UK. Alternatively we hold substantial stocks of the heating systems, insulation boards, controllers etc. at our warehouse in Leeds, W.Yorkshire. Collection from our trade counter can be made Monday-Friday 8am-5pm.
