Floor heating has only really established itself in recent decades, but the idea was already familiar to the Romans. They created a hollow space beneath the floor through which they forced warm air. That basic principle still applies today - although not with hollow spaces, but instead (water) pipes or electrical cables.
Types of installation
There are two major installation techniques for floor heating: wet construction and dry construction. With the first option, the pipes are fully integrated into a screed layer. This solution is interesting for both new construction and renovation. The second option is primarily useful for the limited renovation of existing homes. In order to generate heat, you can choose either an electrical system or one using hot water.
