HI
anyone know the ins n outs of fitting electric underfloor heating to a conservatory?
Have a concrete slab and intend to tile over. I have seen the kits, normally a woven mat system with electric element incorporated.Any info greatly appreciated.

I haven't got underfloor heating unless i count the loads of central heating pipes under the bathroom floor which work a treat. If i was going to get it i would lean towards a plastic pipe system, though i understand more work involved to do than the electric blanket system. I have always thought that the pipe system is unlikely to leak once tested and unless punctured by a screw or similar, i can't see much going wrong. I have heard on a number of occasions of electric blanket systems breaking down, which would mean like anything under the floor, having to rip the floor up to repair.

Well you will be wiring the thing up for me mate, watch this space!!!
Did you use the base insulation underneath first?
Want to do it right first time, its going in a conservatory, about 5 square metres. Got 13 amp supply in there, was thinking touch screen thermostat and isolation switch inline.
Tiled ontop, so flexi tile adhesive.
Thanks matey
