Which Underfloor Heating System?
FirstFloor products are suitable for many floor types and can be used in almost any room. To ensure that you get the most from your installation, we have developed a range of different systems, and which you choose depends on the room shape, the floor covering and the kind of sub-floor on which it will be set.
In many cases, our ThermMAT system will be the ideal choice, particularly for rooms that are relatively simple in shape. For more complex shapes and smaller rooms with curved or sharply angled walls, ThermCABLE is usually the more practical option, since it can be wound easily around upstands and other obstacles. Depending on your requirements, the spacing between the cables can be varied to change the output of the system from anything between100w/m2 to 200w/m2.
For wooden and wood laminate floors, our ThermFILM carbon mat is the perfect solution because its produces an even heat output across the whole floor. This prevents the wood from expanding and contracting at different rates, which could otherwise lead to cracking over a period of time. ThermFILM is easy to install and has a minimal effect on floor height
Another important factor is insulation, which can have a significant bearing on the efficiency of the finished system. A properly insulated floor will reduce heat loss very dramatically and, by improving the efficiency of the heating system, ensures that it becomes more cost effective to operate.
