The benefit of a consistent and efficient heating system working from the floor up, is available with either a water or electric installation. Underfloor heating requires less energy to run than a traditional radiator heating setup as it does not have to run at such high temperatures. To heat a room effectively a standard boiler and radiator setup will require water heated up to between 65 and 75 degrees C, which is over two times that of the 25-35 degrees required by an underfloor heating setup.

Consistent Heat: A radiator heats the air directly next to it and relies on convection to warm a room, sometimes creating cold areas. In the case of underfloor systems, the heating mats or pipes are arranged across the entire floor to provide a uniform heat which rises from the floor throughout the room.

Lower Running Costs: Underfloor systems cost less to run because they use reduced amounts of power for the same feeling of warmth from a traditional central heating system, which also means they are better for the environment.

Ease of Use: Both warm water and electric installations are managed by a programmable digital thermostat. You will benefit from 24-hour control of your heating, and it can even be pre-programmed to suit colder times of the day or automatically adjust as the seasons change.

Lower Maintenance Requirements: Giving several years of hassle free service which requires pretty much no maintenance, electric underfloor systems are a reliable form of heating your home in Kirriemuir. In contrast to radiators, water fed underfloor heating should not need bleeding or flushing and only requires occasional checks to make sure that it is working to its optimum efficiency. Wet underfloor systems are also longer lasting and more reliable because they put less pressure on existing boilers and alternative heating methods.

Ideal For Any Room: The installation of an underfloor heating system can make available the ten percent of wasted space that's frequently created by conventional hot water radiators. It does not matter if you have a tiled bathroom, a wooden kitchen floor or a carpet in your lounge; there are different types of underfloor heating to suit your choice of floor covering. You can even plump for fully waterproof outside underfloor heating for warming up your patio, summer house or garage in Kirriemuir.

Air Quality: With subtle heat rising from the floor up, an underfloor heating system produces what is known as, radiant heat, which cuts down on the thermal air currents around a room. This establishes a better environment by reducing the quantity of dust particles and pollen which can circulate around your home.

Electric Underfloor Heating Near Kirriemuir Scotland

Electric heating mats can be laid in as little as thirty minutes. Simply spread out and bond the electric heating mat to the sub-floor or insulating surface, have it linked up to the electricity supply by an experienced electrician, and it's good to go. Your underfloor heating installation specialist in Kirriemuir will be happy to offer some advice about which underfloor heating mats are best suited to your choice of flooring finish.

In awkward shaped rooms where cutting ready-made mats to the correct size could be a bit tricky, loose cable electrical heating wire is generally used. An insulation pad is spread out and a single cable heating element is mounted upon it in runs before being covered by the floor finish. A skilled electrician will connect the heating cable to an appropriate electric point or spur, along with installing a room based thermostat.

Electric underfloor heating can be installed as a whole house system that is managed from a main control unit, or can be fitted separately into specific rooms as standalone devices.

Hot water is used in this type of underfloor heating, which are also often termed as hydronic or wet floor systems by different manufacturers. They can be connected to ground or air source heat pumps (usually found in new build houses), or an existing central heating boiler if replacing traditional heating radiators.

Water Underfloor Heating Kirriemuir (DD8)

Installing a water based system significantly increases the floor height as it is placed into a thermal screed poured over your subfloor. This makes water systems more suitable for new build properties in Kirriemuir, however you can get slim pipe options for retrofitting, that do not create too much of a raised floor. As an alternative strategy for "whole home" heating, these systems are becoming more popular then ever. People are switching to these underfloor systems because of their lower operating costs, increased thermal effect and efficiency of heating rooms in comparison with conventional heating solutions.


A mixture of electric and water underfloor heating techniques can be employed in the creation of a hybrid heating setup. Ground floor areas and basements which have higher heating requirements utilise wet floor systems, whilst spare rooms and bedrooms have electric options installed. The efficiency of a "whole house" installation can be perfectly adapted to meet the needs of any house with a hybrid system.


If you are thinking about fitting underfloor heating to any area of your home in Kirriemuir, it is crucial that you carry out a heat loss survey. This survey will be completed by an architect or experienced heating engineer who will establish the insulation needs and heating requirements of your house. Internal living spaces will have lower wattage demands than those of high temperature loss areas, such as a conservatory or uninsulated room. The design of the underfloor heating setup, electric, wet or hybrid, will be based upon this on-site survey which pinpoints the layout, dimensions and heating needs of the overall installation.

To lessen thermal heat losses through the sub-floor it might be required to insert insulating panels under any pipes or heat mats. The heat is then "pushed" upwards as opposed to being absorbed by the floor below, and has the added benefit of decreasing room warm-up times and increasing the system efficiency.

It's possible for a proficient do-it-yourself enthusiast to install an underfloor heating system, but any electrical connections must be performed by a certified NICEIC electrician to Part P specifications. As with any plumbing and electrical installations in Kirriemuir, the recommendation is to use a professional tradesman for the safety and guarantees that are included within the installation process. You should also factor into your plans the levels of aftercare, servicing and any warranty that come with your super, new underfloor heating setup.


If you're considering a new underfloor heating system for installation in an older home in Kirriemuir, it is best to look at an electric mat system. New build houses are better suited to wet floor systems that are much more easily incorporated into newly laid floors.

Underfloor heating systems have lower running costs, are more efficient, are easily controlled by means of smart digital thermostats and are considerably more reliable than traditional heating solutions.

Underfloor heating systems are an excellent way to warm up your entire house, or can just as readily be installed into an individual room, loft conversion or extension to your property.
