What do you need to know about electrical underfloor heating system installation or repair?
There are a few advantages to electrical underfloor heating systems compared to standard central heating and radiators, but the price of installation is high and so generally it is better to install it in a new property than an old one. In addition to the system itself you will need insulation to lay under it, as well as a heating system to control it, and you will need a qualified electrician to connect it to your property’s electric supply. Also stop to consider how many rooms in your property will need heating of this kind - being selective will save you a lot of money.
The cost of installing an electrical underfloor heating system will be around £75 per square meter for pre fitted mats or around £100 per square meter for the loose cables, plus the cost of additional prep work and the electrician’s fee. Be sure to have your property properly assessed - this kind of service is usually free, and so you should be able to collect several quotes to compare. Remember to ask for a price breakdown, and ensure that any tradesmen you hire are adequately qualified and experienced. They should be able to provide information on this, in addition to customer reviews. They should also be properly covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
Electrical underfloor heating systems can show faults around a year after they are installed. The problem is rarely anything to do with the system under the floorboards, and so repairs are often not too invasive. The cost of a repair will vary depending on your location in the UK, the size of the company and whether any additional parts are required. It is a good idea when you get the system itself installed to ask your tradesman if he offers a guarantee to cover repairs for the immediate future after installation.
