The electric mat consists of a thin, flexible mesh made of electrical wires embedded in a durable and heat-conductive material. These mats are available in various sizes to suit different room dimensions and can be easily cut and customized to fit specific areas. The mats are typically installed directly onto the subfloor or embedded within a layer of self-leveling compound, ensuring a smooth and level surface for the final flooring material.
One of the significant advantages of electric mat underfloor heating is its quick and easy installation process. Unlike traditional hydronic systems that require extensive plumbing and installation of water pipes, electric mats can be installed by a professional or even by homeowners themselves, depending on their level of expertise. The mats are laid out according to the room’s layout, connected to a thermostat and power supply, and then covered with the final flooring material.
