Setting the right budget

How much should you expect to pay?

We know it's difficult to estimate how much a project will cost, that's why we've surveyed our tradesmen to give you an idea of how much you should expect to pay for specific jobs. Tradesmen all across the country have contributed to the cost guides, so the costs you see are an approximate national average.

Underfloor heating

Low High
Underfloor heating £100 £900

Your choice of underfloor heating will influence the choice of tradesman for the job, as underfloor heating for your bathroom can be ‘wet’ (linked to gas central heating) or ‘dry’ (electrical underfloor heating). A good bathroom specialist will be able to advise you on which will be best for you and any good tradesman will ask about your needs and the type of flooring you have before taking on the job.

A plumber or heating engineer will fit ‘wet’ underfloor heating, whereas an electrician should fit electrical ‘dry’ underfloor heating. Electrical underfloor heating is far easier to lay, as the heating elements come on a roll of mat, which can be cut to size by your tradesman and then connected to your electrical supply and a thermostat.

For ‘wet’ underfloor heating a heating engineer will install flexible pipework beneath the floor, which will be linked to your water and central heating system. He may also install insulation boards to keep the heat from leaking.

In both cases your tradesman will need to lift and then refit any floor before the system is fully operable. There may be a small amount of cosmetic work to do once the floor is re-laid, as lifting floors can damage the finish. In some cases you will need a new floor after the heating is installed. Your tradesman should be able to advise you on whether this is the case.
