If you have been struggling to sell your home during this property slump, then being able to advertise ‘with underfloor heating’ is a huge bonus as buyers shop around. Ever innovative and responsive to customer needs, Domus is now installing an ultra-thin wafer mat containing heating elements for an underfloor heating system at a fraction of the cost of hot water systems, and with no disruptive digging up floors.
Before you think that this can not be achieved in your home as your doors are flush with the current surface tiling, Domus has cunning ways and means of ensuring this low-cost yet hugely efficient system can be laid with the minimum of cost and fuss. The new electric mat system rolls over your existing floor and then new tiling is laid on top.
The wafer-thin system is guaranteed by the factory for 10 years and Domus is still offering to pay the equivalent of your IVA - that’s a 23% discount reflecting Domus’s strong presence in the Algarve for 23 years.
To install the new slimline underfloor heating system in a house of 140m2 will cost a shade under €3,500 fully fitted, but then deduct a discount of 23%. So for under €2,800 you can equip a 140m2 property with a modern heating system and not break the bank.
The Domus professional team will ensure your house is left clean and your new underfloor system is working perfectly.
For even greater efficiency Domus uses Therma-Coat acrylic insulating primer specially formulated for use with electric under-tile heating. This reduces energy loss by up to 20% when used on concrete, screed, cement or tiled floors, greatly reduces warm-up time and offers a +2ºC difference using the same energy input.
Another bonus is that you can buy those new tiles you always wanted and really give your house a lift for the spring market.
The estimated running cost of keeping a room at a constant 20 degrees inside with an outside temperature of 8 degrees on a bi-horario tariff contador/ electricity meter works out at €1.95 per month per HEATED m2. So for an average sized snug of 40 m2 the running cost for the room will be around €80 per month through the four cold months of the year in the Algarve. That’s all.
