This all depends really on the area where the UFH is required and the final floor covering. For example a small bathroom would benefit from an electric mat system as its cheap to install and cost effective. However in a large area a wet system would be preferable as running costs are significantly lower than with an electric system

If you have a small room i.e a bathrooms I would go for electric under floor heating as it’s cheaper to buy and easier to install. If you have a larger room i.e kitchen extension than I would go for the wet under floor heating, although it costs more to buy and install, once installed under the floor screed it runs off the central heating system and once it heats up the floor it stays warm and it’s not an uncomfortable heat like coming from a radiator.

There are two types of underfloor heating: electric and water. Electric underfloor heating is cheaper to buy and have installed. You can even install some of it yourself, although you'll need a qualified electrician to connect it. Water underfloor heating is cheaper to run than electric systems, but it's more expensive to install and it's advisable to get professionals to do it. Water systems are more efficient than electric systems, especially in a larger room.
