Enquiry Form

Selecting the required cable or cables for a room is a simple three step process.

Check floor surface

EHC layerd diag

EHC heating cables are most commonly installed under tiles either in flexible self-levelling compound or directly into the tile adhesive.  However EHC heating cables are frequently used with other floor surfaces such as carpet, vinyl, laminate and engineered wood with the heating mat being completely covered in a flexible self-levelling compound which is allowed to dry before the floor surface is applied.

If there is any doubt about the suitability of any given floor surface for use with underfloor heating, confirmation should be sought from the flooring supplier.

Select the correct cable or cables

EHC floor diag

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.  Use the following table to select the correct cable.   In larger rooms it is common practice to install more than one cable.

 

Select insulation boards

F-Board

To limit downward heat loss and to significantly improve economy, the use of F-Board insulated tile backer board is highly recommended.  The use of F-Board insulation is particularly important when heating mats are installed on top of an un-insulated concrete slab.  F-Board is available in two thicknesses: 6mm and 10mm.  We recommend using 10mm board except when it is vital to keep the floor height to a minimum.  Each board covers an area of 0.72m².  Therefore to select the correct number of boards, simply divide the total floor area by 0.72.

F-board is lightweight and easily cut to shape.

 

Controls

Underfloor heating cables must be thermostatically controlled.  BN Thermic offers a wide range of thermostats from a simple manual device to the latest smart technology.
