Bathrooms are some of the hardest rooms to heat, and keeping them warm during cold winters is a challenge. There are a handful of solutions to combat cold bathrooms but there is one solution that is the most effective. As we have seen in the The Block underfloor heating is a affordable and great choice for heating bathrooms. 

Many homeowners don't realise that installing an underfloor heating system in their bathroom can be a great way to save money on energy bills, while also providing additional comfort and luxury.

Installing in screed underfloor heating system in your bathroom will make it more comfortable, help with humidity issues and prevent mould growth. It's easy to install yourself.

The bathroom in screed electric floor heating system is best suited for wet area applications, for example, bathrooms & laundries where you lay the electric floor heating mat and simply screed over the top. Here at FHK, our Inscreed heating mats enables you to use almost any type of floor surface, for example, graphite, marble, natural stones and tiles. Underfloor heating in the bathroom is an economical way of heating the whole room.

This is the type of system we most commonly used in Australia for installation in bathrooms. It is also known as ‘dry’ underfloor heating because it uses electric cables that are woven together and laid under the tiles to provide heating.

So what are the benefits to using underfloor heating in bathrooms? There are plenty but we have explained 5 top benefits of using floor heating.

1. SPACE SAVER
Underfloor heating is becoming an increasingly popular choice as it doesn't take up any space and allows freedom to design the bathroom. Our thin electric floor heating mats are designed with the latest technology and thin, adding no extra height to your floor surface. The heating system is out of sight, and you will only feel the warmth.

2. ENERGY & COST EFFICIENT
Heated bathroom floors are more energy-efficient than typical convection and fan heaters. Underfloor heating retains heat on the floor better because it doesn't have a breakout route like traditional methods do, which means radiant heating can save you up to 15% in utility bills! As such, heated bathrooms only take minutes for their surfaces and need low temperatures of about 28 Degrees Celsius.
Many people assume that an underfloor heating system is expensive to run. In reality floor heating systems are designed to precisely heat where needed most with fast response times.

3. WORKS WITH DIFFERENT FLOOR TYPES
Underfloor heating is extremely versatile. Heating can be done on multiple flooring types.
Tile and stone are considered the best flooring type for bathroom underfloor heating because of their high thermal conductivity.

4. FULL CONTROL OVER THE HEATING SYSTEM WITH SMART TOUCHSCREEN THERMOSTAT
There are two ways you can control your floor heating system. You can turn the system on or off anytime you want to use the bathroom or you can set a schedule of when you want the floor heating on. You have control of when to turn on the heat and how long you want the bathroom to be heated. This feature is very helpful if you always work with fixed schedules.
