What Floor Type is Best for Underfloor Heating?
If you’re looking at installing underfloor
heating on a home renovation or new build project, something that always
crosses the mind of installers and homeowners alike is which flooring finish
will be compatible with a floor heating system?
The good news is that Snug
Underfloor Heating has a variety of systems to suit the needs of any
project, no matter which flooring choice you make. Whether it’s upstairs or
downstairs, real wood, tile or carpet – we’ve got the best
underfloor heating solution
for your project.
Water Underfloor Heating Systems are perfect everywhere –
All of our in-screed wet
underfloor heating systems are compatible with any conventional floor
finish, and you can even have Snug water underfloor
heating upstairs with our suspended
underfloor heating systems. Our Snug
Fit-from-Below system is specifically designed to sit between joists
from below, allowing you to heat the upper floors without disrupting the upper
flooring. Whilst our Snug Suspended Heat Plates, contain
self-retaining grooves that grip to the pipe making installation an easy,
Tile, Stone & Marble Flooring
Our Snug electric floor heating
systems can also be used with any flooring, but it is important that the
correct product is used. If a primary heating system is required, in other
words it is the only heat source in the room, our 200w
SnugMats can be used under tile, stone and marble.
Under tile, stone and marble
heating can also be achieved as the secondary heat in the room with our 160w SnugMat, it can also be placed under wood and
adhered laminate but requires 10mm of levelling compound on top.
Carpet, Real Wood & Laminate
underfloor heating under carpet our SnugMat 150w
FME and a sheet of closed cell insulation only raises your floor height
by 4mm and provides a perfect comfort heat in any living room, kitchen or
bathroom. The SnugMat FME is also ideal for under
wood heating and tongue & and groove laminate.
We also offer a Snug Loose Cable
system for primary or secondary heating, which allows for further heated floor options in awkward spaces where
usually there would be no space for matting.
