Will Heat Come Through the Carpet?

Think underfloor heating doesn’t work with carpet, because carpet is too thick an insulator? Think again! Unless you’re having an extraordinarily thick carpet installed at your home, the heat will come through and warm up the carpet without any worries at all. You can have a chat with our staff and organise an inspection and quote before the build commences so you can be 100% sure of the top-notch outcomes you can expect.


Is There Special Technology for Under Carpet Heating?

The Comfort Heat Under Carpet Heating Foil has been designed for the specific purpose of providing invisible under carpet heating, but it works wonderfully with floating timber floors as well. The heating mat has a heat output of 140W per square metre, and when switched on, it has a fast response time. You’ll have luxurious, warm carpets at the desire temperature in as little as fifteen minutes.


Is Installing Under Carpet Heating Safe?

Any electrical job can be dangerous when done by an inexperienced person. However, when installed by a professional like somebody from the team at Comfort Heat, all underfloor heating services are incredibly safe, no matter what surface you’re working with. Our specialist staff can design the best installation for you and your specific circumstances. Final connection of the carpet mats to electricity must be carried out by a licenced electrician.


Is It Cost Effective?

Underfloor heating is one of the most cost-effective ways to heat a room, be it a kitchen with floor boards, a tiled bathroom, or a carpeted bedroom. In comparison to air conditioning, which heats all the air up above you near the ceiling, underfloor heating heats a part of the house that you’re actually living in. There’s less power wastage, so lower power bills. Plus, with under carpet heating, you’ll have the added, priceless feeling of having lovely warm carpet between your toes.
