Electric underfloor heating installation isn’t rocket science, and a competent DIY homeowner can do most of the work themselves. However when it comes to the wiring, you’ll need to speak with a registered electrician.

Things to check

The biggest issue about electric underfloor heating is the cost of installation in older buildings. In new builds this isn’t so much of a problem because the way they’re designed.

Another consideration before you go ahead and arrange electric underfloor heating to be installed in your house is that it takes a long time to warm up. Correctly setting a thermostat is critical for those cold nights. Also in smaller rooms you might not have enough space to sufficiently heat the room up, so you may have to use radiators as well.

The final consideration is what furniture you have. Big boxy items won’t allow the heat to rise and you’ll end up with a cold room and an expensive electricity bill.
