The electric system you install will depend on the size of the room and how well insulated it is, what the flooring below is like, whether it is insulated and the type of flooring you’ll have on top. Options include loose-fit wiring, flexible enough to fit into small or awkward spaces, electric cable systems, or heating mats you roll out to cover larger areas. There are 4 main types of systems available: Underfloor Heating Mats Underfloor heating mats are our most used system. All you need to do is roll out the mat until it’s used up. The cable can be removed from the mat to shape into any awkward spaces if needed.

This also applies to areas next to radiators and elements, under furniture and carpets, etc. With good furnishing and without too many carpets, or carpets that are too thick, it is reasonable to achieve a temperature of 73°F (23°C) over the entire floor area, for a room temperature of around 69°F (21°C). Of course, this is assuming that the room requires a normal amount of heating. This means that your sealing, insulation, windows, etc., must be of regulation standard quality. Extra precautions should be taken to ensure the temperature at the feeding of the hot water never exceeds the maximum level, and that installation instructions provided by the supplier of the heating system are followed correctly. Words of warning Floors with underfloor heating are more susceptible to moisture than those without. This is because the difference in moisture content between the driest and dampest parts of the floor will increase over time. Underfloor heating can cause extensive drying, which makes the wood contract and shrink. In a cold, dry climate, you can expect to see gaps between strips and slightly concave boards from time to time. We recommend Kährs Original 15 mm flooring or Kährs Linnea 7 mm with Woodloc® or Woodloc® 5S joints for floors with underfloor heating. Both Kährs Original and Kährs Linnea reduce the risk of gaps forming. It is worth bearing in mind that parquet flooring made from Beech and hard Maple expands and contracts more than other wood species and is therefore not recommended for use with underfloor heating. Installing over underfloor heating Your wood floor must be laid close to the subfloor and without an air gap, as air gaps can cause the wood to dry out very quickly. When laying a floor over underfloor heating loops, the working temperature should be at least 64°F (18°C). This is applicable to boards, subfloors and room temperature. The relative humidity (RH) of the air must be between 30 and 60% before, during and after laying the floor. Find out more about laying Kährs floors:Installation over Radiant Heating (pdf)
