Floor construction

As topsoil at a lot of floor coverings are eligible, of natural stone and ceramic on wood to cork, there are no limits.

Electric underfloor heating

Besides the classic warm water underfloor heating, in which a plastic tube is placed in the floor, there are also electric underfloor heating systems. What at first sounds like anmutet and, upon closer inspection, however, differs quite significantly from each other.

Electric underfloor heating and floor heating are structurally to recognize it and to distinguish where the heating conductors are laid in the ground. For electric underfloor heating screed they are within or below and heat the heating screed. With electric underfloor heating screed they lie on the heat and the flooring.

To move individually

Electric underfloor heating is available in the form of mats and heaters . For mats of the meandering heating element is fixed on a base fabric heaters consist of a graphite layer is coated on a polyester film. Due to their low height of about 3mm (mats ), and about 1mm ( films) , the electrical underfloor heating is very popular with renovations of existing buildings . The mats and sheets can be cut individually , making it particularly easy to install .

Heaters are not quite as warm as heating pads , making them ideal for the living room , which is heated only to 23 to 24 ° C floor temperature . In general, films are placed wherever the flooring can not be heated so strongly . For wood and laminate floor heaters are therefore ideal . Heating mats are classically used for stone and tile floors in the bathroom that tolerate more heat .

The mats are directly under the tiles in the tile adhesive transferred ( thin bed process ) , which is why this form of underfloor heating is also called thin- surface heating . Areas under showers and bathtubs must remain avoided in any case ! For elastic materials like PVC and linoleum , the electrical underfloor heating is protected from the impact of a stronger layer of filler . Mats and slides must also be provided with thermal insulation down , which is usually placed between the screed and concrete ceiling .

Benefits of Underfloor Heating

Allergy benefit from underfloor heating , especially in combination with natural stone , as no dust is stirred up by this type of heating . The floor also makes its contribution to energy saving . Due to the uniform distribution of heat the room air temperature can be set lower by one to two degrees. This corresponds to an energy saving of up to twelve percent compared to conventional heating systems. The living room can be used better and the installation of radiators applicable . When comparing costs to keep the cost of a radiant heating and conventional heating the scale. Even with a standard heating the floor must , consisting of insulation, screed and flooring to be installed. With a surface heating only heating pipes or electrical heating element are added, while the cost of heating omitted.
