Follow the instructions

Make sure your DIY electric underfloor heating kit comes with detailed, step-by-step instructions which make it easy for anyone with basic DIY or home handyman experience to manage on their own. Take the time to familiarise yourself with the instructions and make sure you’ve got everything you need before you get started. Make the area as safe as possible during the installation, so you need to prepare your tools and the contents of the kit as well as the space in which you are working.

Do your research

The instructions you’ll receive are detailed and easy to follow, but it’s always best to do your research beforehand and ensure you’re 100% sure of what’s involved. Watch our Comfort Heat videos on YouTube, always make sure you’re watching videos that outline the installation of the same underfloor heating system. If you can’t find a video of the model you’re planning to install, watch instructional videos but still follow the instructions step by step. 

Ask for help (If you need it)

Even those with extensive DIY experience find themselves lost at times, so if you’re unsure of something in the instructions or something doesn’t make sense, ask our friendly team at Comfort Heat. As it is better to be safe than sorry.
