Electric underfloor heating mats are a popular choice amongst home owners, however they are not without their flaws and problems. This is why we offer a great alternative which works more efficiently, costs less, and distribute heat more evenly.
First things first, underfloor heating mats cost significantly more to run than a water-based heating system. Wet underfloor heating is much more efficient as it runs and warms up your home effectively at low temperatures. Due to electricity prices being particularly expensive in comparison to gas prices, choosing this method of heating, which is fed from your existing gas boiler, keeps the running costs of your heating much lower.
A wet underfloor heating system is a far superior method of supplying heating to your home as it distributes evenly throughout the room and heats up the property well even at a low temperature. Underfloor heating mats, on the other hand, can often have issues where they fail to distribute the heat evenly meaning that the temperature isn’t balanced throughout the heating area.
Also, if you opt for mats and have any problems after installation, it can be much more difficult to rectify as they have electrical components below your floor which causes disruption to fix.
Electric mats have a shorter lifespan than a conventional water-based underfloor heating system, meaning that buying the latter is much better investment in the long run as it is much more durable and will work to its full potential for a longer period of time.
