We design our heating floor systems between 80 and 100 watts per square meter. An average size bathroom of say 4 sqm will cost approximately 14c per hour to run. The cost to run will vary depending on size of the heater used and your electricity prices, however overall they are very cost efficient.
Our supply kits start from just $200.00 inc. GST. Our supply and installation starts from $500.00 inc. GST.
Heated floors don’t use a lot of electricity contrary to popular belief. Our heated floor systems use 80 watts per sq/m for the first hour and then once the heater has reached a set temperature the thermostat should go on to a 33% duty cycle. This will ensure to keep the heat constant but not blow out your budget.
Heated floors last a very long time. The heating system provided by Speedheat should last for the lifetime of the floors.
The main advantages of underfloor heating include; using much less energy than most conventional heating systems, significantly less dust, no noise or fumes. Underfloor heating is also a very gentle heat that is environmentally friendly. It warms from the ground up, which means more efficient heating coverage of the room.
The main disadvantages of under floor heating come with the installation process. Unlike other forms of heating you are required to install it before your floor coverings so you have to be undertaking a renovation or put it in your building plan. It can be damaged when replacing tiles or drilling into tiles for doorstops. If you are planning on retrofitting underfloor heating then you will need to pull up your existing floors or tiles to install them.
Underfloor heating system are in fact one of the best forms of heating for your health as there are no dust or fumes. Underfloor heating systems are the ideal choice for people with allergies including dust.
Floor heating systems work utilising electric elements that are installed directly under the finished floor surface. Our sophisticated thermostats then control- the heating to give you a nice warm heat throughout the designated areas.
