This can vary. A common electric underfloor heating system is 150watts per square meter. Bigger rooms will need more heat mat installed, but you should also consider the heatless in the room to. Is it draughty, are there lots of windows? all of these things can impact the cost of running the heating. On average a 150w mat that is 5m2 will cost around 12p an hour that it is running. If it's up to temperature the thermostat will cut off the heat so the mats might not be on as long as you would think .

Underfloor heating using a pipe system normally described as a wet system is typically a third cheaper to run than a standard radiator system. This will depend on the system and property insulation, systems should be designed and specified to an expert to achieve maximum comfort and efficiency levels.
