Frequently asked questions
Are electric underfloor heating systems designed to heat a room or just to keep a floor warm?
Underfloor Heating UK DEVI systems are suitable for both heating the entire room or floor only, depending on your requirements.
Poorly insulated areas and in very cold conditions, may require additional heating if you wish to ensure that the room is well heated. Using insulation and a higher heat output system will reduce the need for this.
At Underfloor Heating UK we offer a free expert design service to help you ensure that your Underfloor Heating UK DEVI heating system heats as much or as little as you need.
At what stage of the project should I install my electric underfloor heating?
Generally, we would advise that the property should be airtight before the installation of underfloor heating, but this would also depend on the schedule of your individual project.
Can I install the system myself or do I need an expert?
All of our Underfloor Heating mats come with a full set of installation instructions, providing a simple step by step guide. Most systems can be installed on a DIY basis. But the final electrical connection should be made by a qualified electrician.
Can I retrofit Underfloor Heating into my property?
Installation of underfloor heating is obviously easier within a new build project, but if designed correctly, you can still enjoy the benefits of heating your property using underfloor heat on a retrofit basis.
Can underfloor heating be used in a bathroom or a wet room?
Yes, underfloor heating is a great way to warm your home. It’s lovely to walk on and distributes heat evenly around each corner of the room, freeing your walls from radiators, so its not surprising that the bathroom is the most popular place to install electric underfloor heating. However, it is common practice to locate the thermostat on an outside wall (typically on the landing or in the hall) with the floor probe running through the wall into the floor where the heating is installed.
Can underfloor heating be used under carpet?
Underfloor heating can be used with most types of carpet. A self-levelling compound is required and as long as the underlay is not a good thermal insulator (i.e not felt), heat will easily pass through this layer into the carpet itself. The overall Tog value of carpet and underlay combined should not exceed 2.5 with the underlay itself not exceeding 1 Tog.
Do I need a thermostat?
Yes, we include a DEVIreg Touch programmable thermostat in all of our kits. This stylish cutting edge thermostat uses pulse width modulation with optimum start and optimum end programming as well as open window detection to guarantee extremely high temperature control accuracy, ensuring the DEVIreg touch is one of the most efficient Underfloor Heating controls available.
How do I turn off my underfloor heating system?
During the summer months or when it is warm, you may wish to turn off your underfloor heating. All of our thermostats have an on/off switch, which can be used to turn off your underfloor heating system.
Will underfloor heating restrict my choice of floor finish?
The correct floor covering should be carefully considered to ensure heat is not prevented from rising into the room by the floor covering. We offer expert advice on floor covering to ensure the best results without restricting the design of your home.
