Thats just carbon film electric underfloor heating - no different to any of the systems that are used under laminate flooring. Be aware it can only be used under certain floor types too. 

 

For about a third of the cost you can fit standard under tile electric UFH at the outset and if you don’t want to use it, just switch it off ... 

I think there's more to it than normal LV UFH. It only heats up where it's needed. If the sun is shining on a patch of floor that patch will not heat.

Thats a standard property of carbon film resistance heating  - the warmer it gets the less it conducts. It doesn’t care if the heat is from the electrical resistance or from an external heat source, it will self regulate. 

 

It’s the same technology that has been used in trace heating tape for years.

I never said it was a new thing.

@le-cerveau Thank you for your reply.

It is just me by myself.

I will go back & question BPC a bit more.

They are my preferred option.

I will ask them to put me in touch with an installer.

Does anyone have any other ideas for a supply & fit?

 

 

Hello

how did you get on with bpc?

I’m thinking of using them.

thanks.
