Duncan Kerr Electrical can provide and install the most effective and efficient floor heating solution for your home, renovation or project. From 'in-slab', 'in-screed', 'under-tile' or 'timber floor heating', Duncan Kerr Electrical is commited to providing superior installation and service to their customers.

Using radiant heat to warm your home, rather than blowing out hot air, under floor heating provides pleasant warmth to your feet and body by warming the floor surface. It is ideal for hard floor surfaces, such as bathrooms, kitchens and open entertaining areas. Due to the gentle air circulation, the amount of dust particals is reduced considerably, which is a great relief for people with allergies and asthma. Your plants will like it too.

Most installations can be quoted from floor plans and this service is provided free of charge and/or obligation. Duncan Kerr Electrical will assist you with advice on design and how floor heating could best work for your personal situation and needs.

As an experienced and licenced electrical company Duncan Kerr Electrical can manage the entire project, including installation of power supply, connection and commissioning - should you not wish to use an alternative electrician. However, included in our quotes is a power or load schedule for passing onto your on-site electrician if preferred.

In-slab heating uses heating cables embedded in a concrete slab floor to provide home heating. The slab stores the heat at night and releases it to provide continuous warmth to the home during the day. This flooring solution is suitable for one room or for the whole house. It can be installed under almost any floor covering such as tinted/polished concrete, stone, tiles or carpet. In slab floor heating is economical, especially when connected to Off-Peak heating rates. The slab acts as a heat storage bank which warms up during off-peak times - while heat dissipates from the slab throughout the day.

The electrician Newcastle crew offer a full design, quotation and installation service for 'in-slab' heating. We can work with architects and owner builders through to large scale commercial builders. The heating cables are installed prior to the concrete being poured. Duncan Kerr Electrical will liaise with your builders and concretors to ensure a successful quality installation.

In screed heating is used in areas such as bathrooms, or where a screed topping is to be laid over an existing slab or flooring.

In screed heating enables you to use almost any type of floor covering such as tiles, carpet and stone. A 20mm or thicker sand and cement screed bed is laid over the cables, which have been secured on top of concrete, fibre cement sheeting or even waterproofing. Because the heating cables are closer to the surface than an ‘in-slab’ installation the response time is faster. This is the perfect solution when renovating bathrooms or living areas where tiles will be laid. By connecting to a programmable controller your floor heating can be set to automatically come on when you need it.

The electrician Newcastle team offers a full design, quotation and installation service for in screed heating.

Under tile heating isused where tiles are to be laid directly over an existing slab or flooring.

The electrician Newcastle team's Devimat™ floor heating is the natural choice and is a very elegant solution for bathrooms, en-suites, kitchens or any other area where tiles are commonly used and warmth underfoot is desirable. It is very practical and easy to install, delivering warmth on demand and efficiently controlled with an electronic thermostat and optional programmable timers. As well as a comfortable warm floor, the system is energy efficient and the heat generated from a Devimat™ underfloor heating system will drift upwards and warm the room.

The ‘super-thin’ Devimat™ floor heating system is only 2.5mm thin and is ideal when existing floor heights must be maintained. No “set down” is required and as it is so thin it is installed directly into the tile adhesive bed.

Devicell™ insulation panels provide the perfect solution for radiant floor heating under floating timber floors with minimal fuss. Wood is a natural material which contracts or expands depending on the temperature. This puts demands on a floor heating system to distribute the heat in a gentle and controlled way. This calls for a very precise heat control and that is exactly what Duncan Kerr Electrical offers with this system. The panel’s polystyrene insulation ensures that any heat loss is minimsed and its aluminum surface ensures a uniform distribution of heat transfer to the timber floor.
