Underfloor Heating Insulation Boards

As the desire to create more sustainable housing grows, with a focus on minimising energy usage and environmental impact, the popularity of underfloor heating has also grown. By installing underfloor heating, you not only increase the usable space within rooms, but you also create a more efficient heating system that requires less energy to use. However, when installing underfloor heating, it is important to ensure you also have suitable insulation - by having underfloor heating insulation you will reduce heat loss, which means less energy is required to keep the room warm, and the room will stay warm for longer.

There are a range of insulation products available for use with underfloor heating, but underfloor heating insulation boards are by far the most popular. Insulation boards are available in a range of thicknesses, and are easy to install, provide good levels of insulation, and provide a rigid surface onto which flooring materials can be placed. There are a range of insulation boards suitable for underfloor heating available, some underfloor heating insulation boards have been manufactured specifically for use with underfloor heating, and others which are multipurpose insulation boards, but can also be used with underfloor heating.

Reticel Eurothane GP underfloor heating insulation boards

Eurothane GP insulation boards have been manufactured by Reticel as a range of multipurpose insulation boards that are suitable for use with underfloor heating, as well as numerous other applications. Eurothane GP PIR boards are one of the most popular products when looking for insulation boards for use with underfloor heating. Firstly, Reticel Eurothane GP insulation boards are moisture resistant, making them perfect for use with underfloor heating because any leaking pipes or moisture will not affect their performance. Additionally, Eurothane GP PIR boards are Class 1 fire resistant - this means that after 10 minutes, a fire will not spread more than 165mm. This is an important feature in underfloor heating insulation and working with electrical systems. 

Recticel Eurothane GP insulation boards come in a range of thicknesses, from 25mm to 150mm. This means that if there is little space between the underfloor heating system and the floor it can still be used, and if there is a larger gap between the underfloor heating and the flooring the thicker insulation boards can be used. 

Tile backer boards

Tile backer boards are a great option when it comes to underfloor heating insulation boards. One of the reasons tile backer boards are so popular is because they act as two different features in one - they can be used as the surface on which to directly install floor tiles, but also have a high thermal conductivity which means that they act as a good thermal barrier to prevent heat loss. Tile backer boards are easy to install, incredibly moisture resistant, and are lightweight yet extremely strong, meaning they are able to hold the weight of the floor tiles without any issues - even more reasons why tile backer boards are the perfect underfloor heating insulation boards.
