What do underfloor heating installation services include?

Apart from roof and ceiling insulation, underfloor heating is another way of reducing your energy consumption and electricity bills. For a quicker installation, it's best to get someone who knows their way to almost any make and model from various underfloor heating companies. From assembly and installation, plumbing and electrical works, as well as final inspections, they can help! 

Keep in mind that underfloor heating experts can only provide minor screeding. Consider hiring a flooring expert for a smoother and more secure flooring surface after the installation. If you are new to underfloor heating, here are some of the things you can expect:

Electric underfloor heating installation

Electric underfloor heating comes with an interconnected coil or electrical wires embedded into heating mats. You can install them pretty much anywhere as long as they are connected to a power source. Significantly thin and more accessible, electric underfloor heating is ideal when retrofitting existing rooms. The exact installation process depends on the recommendations of the manufacturer, but the service usually includes:

  • Disassembly or lifting of existing floors (if needed)
  • Cutting of mesh if they appear too loose for the existing subfloor
  • Rolling out of heating mats
  • Fixing them on the surface using double-sided tapes or glues (usually attached on your mesh)
  • Installing of temperature sensors and connecting them to a thermostat
  • Connecting your underfloor heating to the main electrical source

Wet underfloor heating installation

Wet heating systems feature a series of pipes that are commonly connected to a central boiler, although some models can work with solar panels or heat pumps. Once you've set the temperature on your thermostat, the boiler will start heating a certain amount of water and pump them throughout the pipes. The heat energy from the pipeworks will emanate across the room, from the underfloor up to the ceiling. Installing your wet underfloor heating might take longer than electric underfloor heating since it requires a bit of plumbing work. While Taskers are more familiar with fitting them for new commercial or residential builds, there are also plenty of plumbers who can install them in existing rooms. The installation process involves:

  • Layout designing (if needed)
  • Securing the manifold in place
  • Fixing pipeworks in place
  • Connecting your heating pipes to the manifold
  • Screeding over the new underfloor heating systems
  • Checking of flow rates

After the installation, it can be quite frustrating to deal with all the residual dirt and dust floating around the house. If you don't have the time to fix up, why not book a Tasker for a quick after builders cleaning service? With the right skills and set of cleaning equipment, you won't have to worry at all about the mess!
