ThermoSphere Mesh Underfloor Heating System – flexible heating system for floors and walls.
Underfloor heating systems have numerous benefits versus radiator based systems. Traditional convection radiators are highly inefficient and distribute heat unevenly, resulting in drafts and temperature variances within in a room. They also have to be set to a higher temperature to achieve the desired comfort level increasing the heat loss and increased energy bills. However, underfloor heating systems provide comfortable, even temperatures within a room whilst being extremely energy efficient with rapid heat up times and accurate temperature control. If the heating system is under the whole floor you can save money through lowering the ambient temperature by 2°C without loss of comfort. They also have the added benefits of being maintenance free, reducing allergy symptoms and providing you with interior design freedom from unsightly radiators.
ThermoSphere Mesh Underfloor Heating System has a number of features which make it a particularly reliable and easy to install system. Its self-adhesive backing speeds up installation by holding the mesh to the substrate for easy self-levelling and tile fixing. Exclusive to ThermoSphere, the TwistedTwin heating cable is the most robust and long lasting cable in the market, and also comes with full earth protection making it one of the safest heating cables available. The unique cable construction also creates a longer lasting heating cable by minimising stresses within the cable construction, and also eliminates any electro-magnetic field (EMF), making the ThermoSphere Mesh system the safest and most reliable choice.
The Mesh system is also incredibly versatile and can be used for walls in wet rooms and shower enclosures to eliminate cold corners and mould breeding grounds simply and effectively. ThermoSphere wall heating mesh can be safely installed in the walls of your bathroom or shower cubicle to create the ultimate in comfort and luxury and also speed up the drying process in the shower space to reduce mould and mildew build up. The mesh is designed to be covered with a levelling compound or tiled directly over and with an IP68 rating it is safe for use in wet locations.
Although the ThermoSphere Mesh System is recommended for tile and stone floors, with the right accessories, it can be used in almost any type of floor specification including carpet and vinyl. As every room is different, the Mesh system can also be modified to fully cover your desired heated area. The easy to follow cutting and installation guides are designed for this very purpose to avoid causing any damage during installation.
In terms of output there are three choices available which are suitable for all different types of room. The higher the wattage, the faster the heat-up time, for example the 200W/m2 has rapod heat up time and is perfect for high demand rooms such as wet rooms. The 150W/m2 is a great primary heat source for well insulated rooms and is extremely effective with 85% floor coverage. Finally the 100W/m2 is perfect for smaller bathrooms and cloakroom spaces, particularly when only floor warming is required.
You can also maximise the efficiency of your electric underfloor heating system by choosing the thermostat that suits your lifestyle. If you want to control it via an app, then SmartHome or the Bluetooth Programmable Thermostat might just be for you.
