Professional Underfloor Heating solutions for Stockport homes and businesses.
Standard or High Density
Other than in exceptional circumstances standard density heating mats will provide enough output to serve as a sole source of heat in a room.
High density mats may be preferred when one of the following applies.
Size of Mat
The objective is generally to cover as high a percentage of the free floor area as possible. The free floor area is defined as the floor area not occupied by permanent fixtures such as kitchen cabinets and shower trays.
As a rule of thumb, we suggest selecting a mat with total area approximately 10% less than the total free floor area. This will allow for perimeter spacing and ensure easy installation
For large rooms it is common practice to use more than one heating mat. In these circumstances there is a choice of subdividing the room into separate zones each controlled by its own thermostat or connecting the heating mats together electrically in parallel and using a single thermostat. When controlling more than one heating mat from a single thermostat it may be necessary to incorporate a contactor into the control circuit. Alternatively, a Wireless Control System allows several heating mats to be controlled without a contactor.
