Electric underfloor heating is relatively cheap to install, easy to use and very durable. It proves to be invaluable in kitchens and bathrooms, where it provides a warm and pleasant to touch floor throughout the year.
Underfloor heating can be used as primary or secondary heating. As a primary heating it is usually chosen when there is no possibility of using other forms of home heating. As a secondary heating it is usually installed in bathrooms and kitchens.
