Electric underfloor heating has been available to the market for quite a long time, but some consumers still have concerns about using electric underfloor heating. Will the floor get too hot? Will my children be exposed to dangerous electricity? Is it safe for me and my family? Overall, when you use a professional approved product there is nothing to fear. We will briefly cover off on these questions now.
DO THE FLOORS GET TO HOT?
When an electric underfloor heating system is wired up to a programmable thermostat you will have complete control of the heating. The thermostat can be programmed to regulate and control temperature to your desired settings. You can programme the electric underfloor heating to run for the times you need and at the temperature you find comfortable. This means the floor is the perfect temperature when you need it so it won’t over heat or burn your feet.
IS THERE A PROBLEM WITH THE PROXIMITY OF ELECTICITY AND WATER?
If you imagine a bathroom setting, electric underfloor heating as the name states is installed under your tile or timber flooring. This means it is already at a greater distance than many other everyday bathroom items such as power points, light switches, hairdryers, and electric shavers. All Thermogroup underfloor heating systems are IP68 rated and therefore protected against an water so a perfectly safe to be installed in the bathroom or shower area.
WILL MY CHILDREN AND FAMILY BE SAFE?
Electric underfloor heating is safer than many other methods of heating. There is no exposed wiring, and no exposed active elements which prying fingers can get to. All of Thermogroup’s electric underfloor heating also comes as zero EMF (electric magnetic field) and is safety tested beyond 2500 volts.
Other heating arrangements are often at far risks with more vulnerabilities. If anything, the luxury heat from electric underfloor heating is far safer and certainly a far more pleasant alternative.
