Common Underfloor Heating Problems Request a Callback and we'll get in touch with you

One of the most worrying trends we are seeing more and more of is homeowners relying on third party ‘specialist companies’ to repair faults with their underfloor heating. Unfortunately, this commonly ends with either the fault not being fixed at all, or more damage being caused to the system itself due to improper and unsafe repair methods.

The source of most third party faults is the lack of correct equipment or working knowledge required to carry out a safe repair. This leaves a shoddy attempt at a repair which fails to meet manufacturer’s standards, and doesn’t satisfy the current 17th Edition Wiring regulations BS7671.

We’ve seen it time and time again where underfloor heating systems have been worked on by these so-called specialists only for the fault to remain unfixed, requiring further work to be carried out by the professionals.

Common substandard repairs involve just twisting the cable ends back together, then taping up the joint with standard electrical tape. This is an unsafe way of dealing with any cable, and can create a real danger, especially for underfloor heating systems in wet rooms.

Third party repair companies won’t approach your underfloor heating system with the relevant considerations in mind, performing repairs as if treating general electrical connections. This leads to situations where heating cables are repaired without proper safety precautions, for example, causing them to melt over time which only leads to greater headaches in the future.

If you’ve been unfortunate enough to be the victim of a repair gone wrong, it’s time to call in the professionals. Bringing expert knowledge and the most advanced equipment available, a trusted underfloor heating repair company will work to fully rectify any fault with safety in mind at all times.

To ensure that your faulty third party repair is properly corrected, the skilled engineers at UFH Services use the latest fault-finding equipment to properly and accurately identify the source of the problem.

We then work safely and efficiently to rectify the original problem, and to repair any damage or sloppy and lazy repair work performed by the third party company. We aim to bring your underfloor heating system back up to proper working order, and our experienced team strive to work diligently to identify and solve any fault, whether it is pre-existing, or caused as a result of underskilled and uninformed third party workers.
