You may be wondering why installing an underfloor heating system in your bathroom is beneficial compared to more traditional heating systems, so take a look below at just some of the reasons why you should choose underfloor heating:

Unlike traditional heating methods, underfloor heating systems heats up the entire floor, not just specific areas. This means that you will never have to worry about cold spots or uneven heating.

How we install wet underfloor heating systems
Southampton Bathroom Fitters have been installing wet underfloor heating systems for a number of years and have partnered with some of the best underfloor heating companies in the business. The installation process typically involves the following:
Our team will assess if your flooring can take the weight of a system and whether any damage has been done in recent past that may impact this.
This involves levelling the floor, removing any water-damaged boards or tiles and then compacting and sealing the subfloor with a thermal insulation membrane.
Our team will expertly install underfloor heating pipes (usually using thermo-coupling) to reach all areas of your bathroom flooring. We also use the latest heating units that are both energy-efficient and affordable.
Once all installation is complete, our team will test the system to ensure it is working properly and then provide you with a warranty.
Our team will tidy up any installation debris before leaving your home completely ready for everyday use!
Frequently Asked Questions
There are a few factors that will determine the price of underfloor heating, including the size and type of room being heated, how many zones you want installed, and your preferred thermal conductivity. In general though, installing underfloor heating typically costs between £3,000 to £6,000.
There are no inherent dangers associated with installing underfloor heating, but there are a few potential risks that should be taken into account before installation begins. For example, pipes running beneath the floor can leak, causing water damage. Additionally, do not install the heating system if you have fixed or unsupported ceilings – this could cause the roof to cave in. And finally, make sure any electrical wiring is properly installed and kink-free. Overall, installing underfloor heating is a very safe and efficient way to heat your home. We will ensure that all the potential risks and precautions are reviewed before starting installation, so that everything goes smoothly and without any trouble.
When it comes to underfloor heating, you want to make sure that the installer you choose is qualified and experienced. Qualified installers will have completed rigorous training in order to ensure that your home’s flooring and subfloor are properly protected during installation. They will also be knowledgeable about all of the different types of underfloor heating systems available, so you can be certain that your choice is the right one for your needs.
If the flooring in your home contains a product that reacts with heat, then underfloor heating installation may not be a good idea. This could include things like vinyl flooring, laminate floors, or Teflon-coated floors. Installing underfloor heating in these cases could cause damage to the flooring due to the heat build-up.
On the other hand, installing underfloor heating will not damage hardwood or other types of wood floors. However, if there are any weak spots or areas that may not absorb heat well, then temperature differences between the floor and the insulation below could cause issues. It is always best to consult with a professional installer such as Southampton Bathroom Fitters before installing underfloor heating in your home.
