Underfloor heating mats are the easiest and most cost effective type of underfloor heating. They are very easy to install and can be installed by yourself but connecting them to the power line may require a qualified electrician. Electric underfloor heating mats don’t require the use of the boiler, wet underfloor heating on the other hand does. Wet underfloor heating is piping that is placed evenly throughout your flooring, hot water will then run through this piping thus generating enough heat to warm your floors and rooms.

The most common underfloor heating is the electric underfloor heating, this heating is most commonly used in bathroom to warm up the flooring which is usually tiled. Underfloor heating also cost significantly less to run compared to a central heating system.
