Hi

Weíre getting our ground floor amtico removed and limestone tiles to replace.

I was really hoping to add UFH but our adjoining kitchen is already tiled and I donít fancy a 70mm step down on an open plan kitchen.  Also we have some concrete steps going up and having half a first step will look a bit strange.

So just wondering if thereís anything we can put under the tiles to improve insulation thatís low enough profile to not be a big issue?

Itís a solid concrete (earth? Who knows!) floor underneath.

Aerogel comes to mind but is very expensive. https://www.ribaproductselector.com/Docs/6/20666/external/COL635834.pdf

Yes v expensive!

Iíve just seen the 15mm and 18mm Nuheat low profile UFH systems. Seems the pipes are set into a type of EPS. How effective are these set onto a concrete floor - do they really work without additional insulation below?
