Underfloor heating is a luxurious feature that is becoming more and more popular these days and brings you comfort at home – especially during the colder months of the year. However, to enhance the comfort of your flooring and the effectiveness of your underfloor heating, you need to choose a suitable underfloor heating underlay. And that’s where we can help.
A choice of underlay for underfloor heating
Here at British Flooring, we stock some of the best underlay for underfloor heating from leading brands – such as Cloud 9, Duralay and ThermalStream, to name just a few.
Our collection of underfloor heating underlay is suitable for use with carpet and laminate floors and can optimise the system’s performance whilst ensuring underfoot comfort. What’s more, we pride ourselves on offering the most competitive prices possible and supply underlay in various thicknesses, lengths, roll sizes and tog ratings. So, whatever it is you need, you’re sure to find it with us.
Choosing the best underfloor heating underlay
Several factors determine which underfloor heating underlay is right for you, including:
the type of underfloor heating system you have
the material your flooring is made from
the tog rating of underlay
There are two types of underfloor heating – hydronic (wet) and forced air.
With hydronic underfloor heating systems, a series of pipes are laid beneath the floor and hot water is pumped through them to warm your floors. On the other hand, forced air underfloor heating uses warm air which is passed through ducts laid under your floor.
Another thing worth considering is whether you need underfloor heating underlay for carpet or hardwood flooring.
We recommend ThermalStream underlay for use with carpets as it has a low tog rating. At 10mm thick with punched holes, it allows heat to transfer through your carpet and into your home efficiently and offers sumptuous levels of comfort underfoot. Duralay HeatFlow and Cloud 9 Radiance have low tog ratings as well and can be used in carpeted rooms with underfloor heating.
For laminate floors with underfloor heating, you also want a product with a low thermal tog rating – something like Olympic 5 underlay. This rubber underlay boasts a firm yet textured design, so works especially well in areas that are susceptible to heavy foot traffic, but also provides excellent soundproofing properties too.
