Electric underfloor heating requires no connection to a boiler or other heat source and is simply connected directly to an electricity source and controlled via a separate, dedicated thermostat.

For water underfloor heating, the pipework is laid into the subfloor and connected to the heat source via a ‘Manifold’ which regulates the flow, pressure and heat of the water. This heat source can be a standard combi-boiler, electric or gas boiler or a ground source / air source heat pump.
