Hi guys I am lucky enough to have the plans for my bungalow from when it was built in the late 70's I have laid electric underfloor heating countless times before for customers but have yet to lay wet underfloor heating so was thinking of installing it in my bungalow, main reason is that i have taken out the ceiling in the dining room (4.5m in height) so in winter the room is very cold and takes for ever to warm up.
the floor is made up of the following 20mm asphalt 100mm concrete 1200g visqueen 50mm sand 150mm hardcore dpm taken up edge of slab and lapped under dpc
My question's are Can i remove the 20mm asphalt and lay 18mm boards like the prowarm boards that have the channels in for the pipework so i dont loose any height?
Would i need to put a dpm under the panels on top of the concrete or extra insulation? any advise would be much appreciated cheers Ste
