Hi everyone, I'm thinking of installing underfloor heating using some electric underfloor heating elements i found recommendations for online. I read this is quite efficient in electricity savings. But is this method dangerous in some way, what if the pipes break or something. Any issues you have experienced with this kind of heating? I'm no an expert and i'm a bit concerned. Thanks, Bibi
Bibika, If you are going to heat a room using electricity is probably the most efficient way, ie most of the electricity goes into heating room. It is not going to be the most economic way - for the main part of the day when you need heat you will be using full price electricity. If electricity is your only choice then a fan heater will be more effective - the heat is instant, compare this with underfloor heating where you will probably need to have it on for about an hour before you feel any effect. Broken heating elements can be a problem and will probably mean replacement. Safety should not be a problem with a modern electrical installation. end
