- Installing Underfloor Heating
If you are thinking of installing underfloor heating, we would recommend that the first thing you do is get in touch with a local flooring supplier to decide which finish you are going use. When you have decided the finish, you should seek a qualified professional to install your heating. If you do require further advice on this subject, please refer to our articles section where you will find a guide to help you install your heating.
Our harmoni SmartMat heating foils can be used for multiple installations such as under carpet, laminate floors and vinyl floors. The foils are an incredibly thin electric floor heating system. They are often used for warming hardwood floors or carpeted areas as they hardly add any floor height to the floor levels. They work by emitting EMF radiation in small amounts but don’t worry, it is 100% safe and complies with all electric and building regulations. Our product range spans from 1 m² to 24 m². If your room is larger than 24 m², you can simply add other sizes together to form a larger area.
Our loose wire systems are often used in projects that have small or irregular shaped areas. This is because these cables have so much flexibility, they are able to be installed in the tightest, most awkward of spaces and as such, work well for areas that need a precise installation. The heating cable is free flowing and can be spread in an even manner across the space to allow for even heat distribution.
Our In-screed cables provide a heating solution that is both affordable & comfortable. These products are often used in new build projects & house extensions. This is because they take a little longer to heat up as they need to sit under 50 mm of sand and cement screed. As you would imagine, this is a lot easier to achieve this when building a new home from scratch rather than trying to do it on an existing floor. Once installed, these are completely invisible and are therefore an excellent option for the types of properties. The power that they provide, gives enough underfloor heating for thick tiles and flag-stones.
Here at Heater Show, we try to ensure that we supply products you require, as well as products that work with each other. For this reason, we offer a wide range of thermostats that will compliment your underfloor heating units. Our offering includes touch screen and smart thermostats. The thermostats we have in our online shop allows the user to programme custom settings whilst doing the basic functions of raising or lowering the temperature.
Before you install your heating system, you need to ensure your floor is fully insulated. If not done correctly or with the correct product, much of the heat you generate will be lost needlessly. We stock a variety of insulation boards for tiled floors that provide resistance to moisture as well as adding extra thermal insulation. We have selected this range of products to ensure that they help to reduce the moisture content in your flooring. We also stock a range of tile adhesive and self levelling compound.
If you need any help with your product selection or would like any advice on any other area of electric heating, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01473 559079.

Harmoni HT100 Digital Thermostat
Unit appears to be ok and operational. The build quality is perhaps not the best as the unit I received doesn’t fully 'snap' in to the 2 ball-bearing locking arms on the wall bracket to mount the unit totally secure to the wall. One arm appears to engage and secure 1 side of the unit but the other side appears slightly loose. Discussing with Heater Shop they have provided feedback to the manufacturers on this.
Programming the unit is a bit confusing if you want to use it only as a heated floor thermostat controlled only from a floor mounted sensor. To their credit Heater Shop followed up on this with the manufacturers as well.
Some technical questions - resolved
Unit arrived quickly but I had some issues with the unit (thermostat) and raised a ticket through their website. Ticket was followed up a bit slower than I would have hoped but once they responded and we discussed they followed up very quickly on all the ssetup/technical points I raised.
