Perfect Solution for Under-Floor Heating Insulation
If you plan to install under-floor heating, such as radiant heat—you may lose up to 40 per cent of the heat through the sub-floor if you don’t insulate properly. That’s where this insulation board pays for itself time and again. When you install this insulation board tile backer underneath your underfloor heating system, it reduces the heat loss, as well as the cost of running the heating system. Over time, this can result in dramatic savings.
Not only will it save energy and money, but using this insulation board will also boost the system’s efficiency, giving you a warm floor within 20 minutes instead of waiting for hours, if you choose not to insulate. Its thermal properties are that good—which is why you need to consider this tile backer insulation board for your underfloor heating system.
