Electric slab underfloor heating is installed prior to the slab pour. Slab heating can have any type of floor covering installed on top providing you do not penetrate the slab. Slab heating can be warmed overnight, during off peak electricity rates, and release that heat during the day due to slabs having excellent thermal mass. More responsive heating can be installed in the topping slab.
Hydronic slab underfloor heating is ideal for large areas, 80m2+, where the slab is used as heat storage, creating thermal mass. The slab can heat during solar or off peak times then slowly release the heat 24 hours a day, making in slab heating ideal when creating an overall heating system. Not ideal for holiday homes or small rooms as in slab heating can take 24-48 hours for the slab to heat up, depending on slab thickness and insulation.
Hydronic screed underfloor heating has a faster response time than slab heating and can be used if pouring a topping slab. Typically, topping slab are used if adding a coloured tint or decorative stone.
All products are available in DIY kits and controlled via a floor sensing thermostat ensuring a consistent and comfortable temperature.
