Step by Step Electric Underfloor Heating Installation

The electric underfloor heating system can be installed under almost any flooring. Because of its unique features, the element is very close to the floor surface, which speeds up response times, and reduces your underfloor heating cost.

Your installer will discuss everything with you before work begins to ensure that the Speedheat electric underfloor heating installation really is designed around your requirements

  1. Phase 1 – preparation The Speedheat installer begins by determining where the thermostat is to be fitted, arranges for the operation of the heating and prepares the subfloor to ensure it is clean, smooth and dry. All the Speedheat elements are checked before the heating is laid.
  2. Phase 2 – installing insulation The Speedheat installer applies the floor insulation evenly onto the subfloor. Floor insulation ensures that the Speedheat system warms up even quicker! Read more about floor insulation
  3. Phase 3 – customised installation The professional installer fits your bespoke designed floor heating system, monitoring its operation at every stage, even during the application of the screed.
  4. Phase 4 – fitting and protecting The installer fixes the heating to the floor and applies fibreglass mesh which is covered with Ardex self-levelling latex screed to prevent damage. Depending on the final flooring, probes are installed to regulate the finished floor temperature to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  5. Phase 5 – final floor finish The result is a smooth, solid floor on which the flooring specialist can fit the desired final floor finish, with the added security of monitor boxes so he knows all is well when he leaves.
  6. Phase 6 – installing and programming the thermostat The Speedheat engineer returns to install and programme the thermostat.
  1. Carpet heating is supplied as pre-formed, foil-backed mats, similar to electric blankets. Working with the carpet supplier, a variety of shapes are laid between the underlay and the carpet. It is also suitable for retrofit as carpets can be lifted and re-laid.
  2. Phase 1 – preparation The Speedheat installer begins by determining where the thermostat is to be fitted and arranges for positioning of heater mats
  3. Phase 2 – customised installation The professional installer fits your bespoke designed underfloor heating system, connecting the various mats to the carpet underlay, already laid by the carpet fitter. The elements are monitored at every stage.
  4. Phase 3 – fitting and protecting The installer fixes the heating to the underlay and secures in place. The monitor box is connected to ensure safety of the elements during installation of the carpet.
  5. Phase 4 – final floor finish The carpet is laid.
  6. Phase 5 – installing and programming the thermostat Depending on size of installation the Speedheat engineer can wait on site or will return to install and programme the thermostat.
