Heat Mat was specified for the installation of electric underfloor heating for an extension at a period property in Sussex.
The property is not on mains gas, and an energy-efficient electric system was required as the sole source of heating. To ensure no additional build height was added and keep walls free from obstructions, Heat Mat’s In-Screed cable system was installed in the dining room and 200W heating mats in the wet room.
In the wet room it was important to have a fast reacting system to rapidly heat the space. The room is not the primary bathroom and will be used irregularly therefore daily heating is not required. In the dining room the requirement was for a sole source of heating to be installed, allowing the family to regularly eat, and entertain guests in the room.
Heat Mat's solution was to provide their low cost and fast-to-fit 6mm Red In-screed heating cable in the dining room, controlled by an intelligent NGT thermostat/timer.
The 6mm Red heating cable was cable-tied directly onto reinforcement fabric ensuring a speedy installation. The screed bed above the heating cable could then be charged up with heat and would provide a very stable temperature in the room.
In the wet room area Heat Mat specified their fast reacting 200W/sqm heating mat system and recommended this be installed directly onto 10mm thermal insulation boards to speed up the warm-up time and maximise energy efficiency.
