Cheaper for the 4m than the 3m
Cheaper at wickes and selco
Anyone know a good floorer in Notts?
Can this be put under wooden flooring ? Engineered wood. Does it raise the levels a lot

Is this an electrician job or a plumbing job ? Also I am having Engineered wooden flooring in hallway which goes into lounge ideally I only wanted the electric heating in lounge so wondering if the raised level in lounge will look odd or will have to fit it across hallway too

You can get threasholds which make the difference look miniscule, and its a job you can di yourself, the wood lays over the mesh

Everyone keeps saying can do it yourself. Some people are not technically inclined as such.
Is it just heating elements, assuming it's electric, or does it also come with thermostat as well.

Thanks to OP

Instructions are inside of the box, B&Q also have homefit who can also fit anything diy related.
33562661.jpgI installed this...works out cheaper too (example in pic is 10m2 including thermostat for £137.38) I've had it for 4 years now works great.

Do you know what it costs to run? I'm guessing electric, and having it needing to heat the surrounding material is quite a bit more than plumbed heating?

I'm not sure, electric would cost more than gas. I'm not using this as the primary heating for the room, just extra comfort for my feet when walking on my kitchen tiles.

thanks i asked a plumber/tiler who i know, they said it needs to be put under screed and its too late and it will raise the floor level (wood)


whereas the builder that did my extension work says it can be done (waiting to hear back from him)

so i need to lay the engineered wood flooring and i bought underlay (standard) for the moment... but wife wants electric heating - she just wants it in the lounge which is around 35sqm

the total surace is around 40sqm *hallway, entrance landing*. (dont really need heating there) but if its helps balance it out in terms of level, then i don't mind)
can it be placed under existing tile floor ?

yes this can be put under wood flooring,

just like it can be put under carpeting

just like you can chew glass,

but i would recommend none of the above .

There's usually the foil heating mats for under carpet and laminate, so be sure to check what is needed for for engineered wood.

I was being very sarcastic in my first reply if that was not obvious,

All wood floors engineered or otherwise are made of wood, which is an insulator, ie it Stops heat or cold, so putting heating under a wooden floor is very stupid!!

No it's not a stupid idea putting it under engineered wood as I've seen it done lots of times and the room heats up nice and toasty but you should never put it under solid wood as it will shrink and warp the flooring

Electric underfloor heating isn't fitted under the screed it's layed on top of the screed then you pore self leveling compound over the top then you lay the flooring. Word of warning if your house is older and hasn't got any insulation under the floor screed then you will need to lay thermal tiles first so that the heat doesn't go downwards
If you don't want the heating in the other room I would just pore self leveling in the other room to bring up the floor level then lay the floor it will look a lot better than putting in a threshold

I'm so sorry hadn't realised you had seen it done lots of times, I'm going to contact my MP now and ask him to support making driving while using a mobile phone legal, as I have seen people doing that lots of times so it can't be stupid.

Yeh it’s new extension with all regulations etc so at the moment the floor is all level I guess that’s the screed so if I was to add the heating I would need to add self levelling compound over this right ?

No this can't be put under wooden flooring, porcelain and ceramic tiles only.

Yes it is a stupid idea to put it under engineered wood, and it will only warm the wood, not the room, but wood is already warm to walk on, so a big waste of money, its main use is under porcelain and ceramic tiles.

interesting, i do have underlway (thermal) which hopefully should retain warmth and i have central heating. but never had wooden flooring before, so i dont' want the predicament of walking on "cold tiles"

Well that's your opinion but it doesn't mean you are right, like I said from personal experience the room warms up nicely, granted it's not as efficient as it would be under floor tiles but it still works fine

If you bothered to read my comment properly you would of know that I said it warms the room up nicely so I'm going by personal experience not just by having it seen done, also I've been in the building game all my working life so I've got a good idea of what's right and what's a bodge job

Yes it's good practice to lay self leveling over electric underfloor heating as it will help protect it from getting damaged while laying the finished flooring

You must be confusing it with wet underfloor heating (pipes), like I said the one the OP posted will not heat a room up, plus it's only suitable for tiles, the flat foil one is for laminate flooring and carpet only, I should know as my company specialises in underfloor heating.
