Self-regulating electric underfloor heating avoids risk of damage to wooden floors

Raychem underfloor heating
Raychem underfloor heating is used beneath solid-wood floor in a refurbishment by interior designer Deborah Drew.
Interior designer Deborah Drew, who appears in BBC1’s DIY SOS programme, has installed Raychem electrical underfloor heating under new solid-wood floors in the hallway and living room of a residential refurbishment project in Porthcawl. The system chosen is the self-regulating T2Reflecting, which automatically adjusts its output to provide more heat where it is needed (such as doorways) and less heat where, for example, there is solar gain. Self-regulating systems have the benefit of not overheating underneath wooden floors and damaging them. The T2Reflecta system is used with a pre-grooved, thermally insulated plate covered with aluminium to minimise heat loss and provide optimum heat distribution .
