Underfloor heating directly on concrete floor?
I am planning to install electric mat/wire underfloor heating in my kitchen with a thermostat. However, my kitchen floor is concrete. I plan to lay ceramic floor ontop of the heating.
Can I place underfloor heating directly onto concrete or do I have to put plyboard down first and then lay the under floor wire heating and then the ceramic tile?
when you purchase the heating mat or wire purchase the insulation paint that the manufacturer recommends some kits supply this as a matter of course this will help with running costs and provide the right surface for the mat and the ceramic tiles to be laid on. if you have room and the money fit a good insulation board this to would be supplied by the makers of the underfloor heating but adds a lot more to the cost

yes you can as long you get a suitable adhesive for the underfloor heating as this may crack the adhesive wen the floor is cold thanks n.england joinery
