    Where can underfloor heating be fitted?

    Heating Engineers

    Is it okay to have underfloor heating fitted in both new and old parts of a home? Or should there be consistency or/and should they only be installed in the newer sections of my property?

    "Hi underfloor heating can be fitted anywhere there are many different installation techniques and as long as your flooring and joists are ok there are no issues with where it is fitted within the property it will do more good than harm hope this helps"

    "You can have underfloor heating under any floor,
    Two kinds electric and water, I would recommend water on an old boiler and you should flush system prior to getting rid of any sludge in system,"

    "Generally any part of the home. If you send a floor plan with flooring construction materials and methods to an underfloor heating manufacturer they will spec the requirements for you."

    "There is no limit to where it can be installed
    There is the option of wet underfloor or electric heating and certain things to consider when having both types
    I.e if you have wet underfloor heating it will be connected to your boiler
    Is your boiler powerful enough
    You will need an accessible area to install a manifold and pump etc"
