Electric underfloor heating gives warmth to kitchens and conservatory floors and are a popular choice for wet rooms and bathrooms as they help to dry them in a quick and efficient manner. It allows for complete control as you can set your heating up in zones and choose which zones to have on at what times and temperatures. Whether you have your whole home covered or just certain rooms, it is the ideal choice when retrofitting to an existing property whereas if you are about to build a new home, a wet system may be better suited.

Our Range

Element Shop provides a range of products that work with different floor coverings. This includes tiled, solid wood flooring, laminate flooring, carpets, and vinyl. Easy to install and cost effective, electric heating mats are perfect for renovations.

Electric ufh works by heating mats, cabling, or foil and can work in tandem with another heating system or completely on its own. Depending on your floor finish, insulation, and the materials used below the floor, will determine which one is right for you. No matter which one you end up using, you can be rest assured that the changes in floor height are minimal as mats, cables, and foils are all ultra-thin.

Electric Underfloor Heating Mats

Heating mats are our most popular underfloor heating system which is mainly down to how easy to install and user-friendly they are. They provide an even heat distribution across the complete floor and allows for an unlimited adjustment of the heating element to suit your needs. Available with 3 different power outputs; 100W which are ideal for timber based floors, 150W which is suitable for concrete based floors and 200W which is used in high output areas such as conservatories and utility areas. All our mats are available as a self-building kit ensuring that you have everything you need to complete your installation and all our products offer great warranties & fantastic customer reviews.

Our harmoni SmartMat features:

  • Self-adhesive mesh
  • Ultra-thin heating cable
  • Twin conductor heating cable
  • Suitable for most wooden surfaces
  • 100% aluminium earth sheath
  • Cable thickness - 3 mm
  • Output - 100W/m²/ 150W/m²/ 200W/m²
  • Operating Voltage - 230/240V
  • Cold tail connection lead - 3 m


Our underfloor heating cables are available in two varieties depending on what they are used for:

Loose Lay Cables

Loose wire systems are ideal for small, irregular shaped areas and work well for areas that require a precise installation. Areas such as bathrooms and twisting hallways are ideal for this system. The flex cable is free flowing and spread in an even manner across the space.

In-screed Cables

In-screed Cables are great for new builds & extensions as they take longer to heat up due to being under 50 mm of sand and cement screed. This why they are mainly used for new builds than existing properties. For invisible heating, in-screed cables are an excellent option as their power provides underfloor heating for thick tiles and flagstones.

Heating Foils

Install our heating foils for laminate floors, carpet, and vinyl floors. These are an ultra-thin electric floor heating system which are great for warming hardwood floors or carpeted areas. They work by emitting EMF radiation which is safe and complies with electric and building regulations. Element Shop’s range spans from 1 m² to 24 m² which means we will be able to cater for a wide variety of sized rooms.

Electric Underfloor Heating Cost

One of the questions that is most often asked when it comes to underfloor heating is how much will it cost? Is it expensive to run? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this as it depends on a number of factors such as:

  • The wattage you are using
  • The size of the room
  • The length of time the heating is on
  • The temperature of the thermostat

To give you an example, a room that is using 10metres of underfloor heating that is 100w per metre, will use 1kW per hour at full power. Whatever your energy company charge you per kW of energy used is then how much you would pay to use that setup for an hour on full power.

Installing Underfloor Heating

Before purchasing and installing your heating, we would suggest that you contact your flooring supplier to decide which finish you are choosing. Once you have decided, check with us the system you have chosen is suitable for the type of flooring you have chosen. Once you have everything you need, we would recommend that you seek a professional to install your heating. However, if you are planning to install them yourself, they are easy and simple to do and the are plenty of tutorials on how to do so on You Tube. Please note that you should use a qualified electrician to connect your underfloor heating to your thermostat and power supply.

Electric Thermostats

Element shop supply a wide range of thermostats for underfloor heating. These include touch screen, smart and digital thermostats. They allow the user to programme custom settings, to either raise or lower the temperature of apparatus and many of them have extra features such as pre-built programs, wifi connectivity and much more.
