Under Tile Heating – A Brief History

Whereas many people are under the impression that under tile heating is a modern idea it has actually been around for more than 2000 years.

As the legions of Rome moved north, they realised the growing need to provide winter warmth inside both public and private buildings.  Fortunately, an under tile heating system was already available – the hypocaust, which translates from Greek as ‘heat from   below’.  These systems allowed hot air to flow underneath floors of buildings as the floors were raised – sitting on brick columns.

Although the basic fundamentals are the same, today’s under tile heating systems have obviously come a long way since Roman times.  Under tile heating systems can now be installed in both concrete and timber suspended floors, along with many other floor constructions.

The installation process is very simple.

We install a special insulation board on top of the existing flooring (concrete or wood) using a flexible adhesive. The heating system, either loose wire, heating mat or foil heating layer is then placed on top of the insulation board. Finally the new floor covering (wood, laminate, stone, ceramic or porcelain tiles) is fixed on top of the heating system.

The under tile heating system is then wired up to a manual or programmable thermostat.
