Liquid Screed Underfloor Heating

Underfloor liquid screed underfloor heating is a great way to keep a home or commercial space warm and is very energy efficient. However, there is one issue that can cause problems for screeds: the underfloor heating pipes need to be covered by a layer of insulation and the screed needs to be able to encase the pipes without creating air bubbles or leaving gaps in the floor.

This is where liquid screed underfloor heating really comes into its own. It can be poured around the pipework, encasing them completely and eliminating any gaps or bubbles that could impact the heat output of the system. And because it’s a liquid formula, it’s self-levelling which speeds up installation and creates a smooth surface ready for your chosen flooring material.

“Achieving Comfort: Liquid Screed for Underfloor Heating Systems

Liquid screed also has very good thermal conductivity, which means that the underfloor heating will spread throughout the building and be distributed evenly across the floor. This makes it a much more energy-efficient solution than traditional screeds. Our contractor clients tell us that once they’ve tried a liquid screed, they can never go back to using traditional or ‘dry’ screed. They cite the quick drying times, speed of application and the amazing finish that’s guaranteed as reasons for this.

It’s important to note that both anhydrite and cement-based liquid floor screed will need to be given time to dry before being pre-heated as part of the UFH commissioning process. The amount of time this takes will depend on the mix, conditions and temperature, but it is always recommended that you follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for this.
