It's fast and cheaper to it do this way than taking out all your floors. Our milling machines allows you to install underfloor heating in any existing floor.
Suitable for many types of floors, including existing tiled floors. No need for a floor screed as the top floor can be laid directly onto the sealed slots.
Underfloor heating in Portlaoise can be installed in 2-3 days at most. Virtually low-dust milling thanks to high-quality extraction equipment. The easiest way to install underfloor heating in an existing screed, concrete or tiled floor, is by milling slots. This avoids unnecessary floor structures or having to chip out the slots.
Milling the floor for installation provides many advantages, such as rapid heating times as the conduits rest directly under the surface, no added floor height and no need to remove existing screed.
There is heat loss but not as high as one thinks, this solution is for projects that have no option. As heat rises, the generated warmth always permeates the floor. Additionally, there is air underneath each conduit in the milled channels. Stagnant air is the best isolation material!
No! The floor of your choice can be installed directly on top of the sealed conduits. Unless unlevelled floors are present, were a 10-15mm screed may be needed.
Floors will have to be smooth as possible, without lumps or bumps (ie. old tile adhesive, holes etc)
