Can I install underfloor heating myself?
For those with adequate skills who follow our installation manual, installing underfloor heating pipework can be a do-it-yourself project. However, the complex tasks of connecting feed/return pipes and commissioning the system require the expertise of a certified plumber. Similarly, a licensed electrician must be consulted for the installation of the wiring center and thermostats.
