My cousin in the UK had one many years ago and even 2 rooms away it was fairly noisy when going through the fill stage.

Re: Keeping Apartment Warm in Winter

Actually the reason I suggested it was folk I know had a cold damp apartment..Putting in the pellet stove totally changed the place...no issue at all with noise either.

Re: Keeping Apartment Warm in Winter

Has anyone experience of under floor heating in Turkey? Is it a viable option?
Thanks

I have it here in UK in 3 rooms as supplement heating when its not quite cold enough to put central heating on .Me and a buddy installed it ,but got a qualified sparks to wire it up to mains RCD .
I think its great and cheap in UK to run ,so with leccy prices in Turkey should be even better.BUT if going down on a concrete floor ( or over existing tiles ) you must put down insulation boards first or you will lose most of the heat through the concrete floor.We don't go in winter time but if we did I would defo choose this silent /clean /controllable way to heat our place .I have it on a timer in bathroom /kitchen/conservatory .Nothing like opening the bathroom door on a chilly morning to be greeted by a warm bathroom .It comes either as a mat or loose wires .Easy and light to take to Turkey in a suitcase .

This is the ideal time to install it ,if you are retiling .As said you can go over existing tiles ( in fact its easier ) it will raise the floor level a bit because of the insulation boards ,so we had to shave a bit off bottom of our doors. I had the complicated timers ( need a ology to work them out )and replaced with simple 7 day timers.
One important thing to remember you have to use special flexible tile adhesive when laying tiles over the heated mat .The adhesive flexes with the heat .If ordinary adhesive is used ,the first time you turn it on , it will crack all the tiles .I nearly made that mistake ,lucky I realised I had bought the wrong adhesive before we laid the tiles .LOL.��

Re: Keeping Apartment Warm in Winter

One last tip I picked up .When you have laid it AND before tiling ,wire a ordinary plug on the cable and plug it in a wall socket to test its heating up .Its triple insulated so OK to touch .Once you feel heat coming through ,then unplug and tile over.Then the thermostat can be channeled in the wall and the electrician wire to a RCD live feed. Ours has been down over 15 years and is perfect .
