Underfloor heating in Kitchens – It’s like walking on sunshine

For kitchens underfloor heating is a great way to warm your feet. Also In the right circumstances it can heat the entire room.

In kitchens rectangular in shape a mat system will be faster to install. For more awkwardly shaped kitchens (Islands etc) in shape, use our HQ wire system.

In newly built kitchens with floor insulation, or by using insulated tile backer boards our heating products can be used stand alone heating. As a general rule you will need a minimum of around 5m². You will need to use 200 watts per m² in your kitchen to generate enough warmth for heating purposes. You will also need a well insulated floor.  Email or fax plans and we will calculate the heating you require. This cannot be left to guess work!

If using the heating to warm the tiles in your kitchen use our 160watt mat.  If you are looking for extra heat use the HQ 200w mat. Our 160 watt and 200 watt mats are similar prices.

The mats are very easy to install. Simply roll the mat out and at the end of the run cut the matting.

Now turn the mat back run back again. C0mplete this until the floor is covered. Once the mat is down we recommend covering the mat with a flexible self levelling compound.

If you are you looking for underfloor heating under a wooden or carpeted floor visit the HQ-foil information page.

At underfloor Hq we price our 160 watt mats almost the same as our 200 watt. The 200 watt will heat up quicker and generate more heat.

Don’t forget that once the tiles are down the opportunity for underfloor heating is lost. You cannot retro fit so make the right choice! Our products are available in local retailers. Contact us for details of your nearest store.
