    12m2 conservatory floor so ideally 11m2 mat.
    Would you bother with 2 mats or do you think 10m2 mat opened up a bit would suffice?
    Trav tiles so should heat up nicely.

    10m sq will do for me - no one walks 30cm to the walls.

    Dcm pro or vario pro and you will get your uncoupling and heating in one and will be able to get perfect size

    Ah well that's it then if you already have it. Generally tho, those systems, you lay the mat, put the wire in and it's good to go, goes down really fast, instead of having to put the wires down, level it, fit uncoupling mat on top. Work it out next time for cost

    Quality costs;). Then remember it's your uncoupling as well and tile straight on, no SLC needed.

    Wonder how it would compare in price?
    Currently 10m2 160W/m2 Raychem mat £350
    Thermostat £64
    And if I had to buy the membrane say about £140
    SLC say £40.
    So about £600 ( Obviously not including cost of thermal boards)

    Try the forum sponsors Uheat. Their variopro system came in under 50% of Ditra Heat price and I get good schluter prices.
    Don't forget that the time you save installing these, is profit made.

    I'm very limited in choice here. The Uheat stuff looks good and if it's good enough for Imp it'd be good enough for me. Do they do a Ditra heat duo equivalent with insulation built in as well?
