We are having the utility room floor tiled and with electric underfloor heating (Mesh/mat type).
Is there a suitable material to put under the freezer to stop it warming up?
Ideally 5-10mm thick.
Many thanks.

I think that the installation of electric underfloor heating is fairly flexible and it may be possible to not put any under the floor where the freezer is to go. Suggest you ask the installer.
If you installed it in a bathroom would you fix it under the bath for example? Don't see the difference.

Thank you. I take your point but the deed is done and I want to rearrange the funiture/white goods.
I would suggest you give some thought to the floor area of your room, as this is the kind of thing you do not get a second chance at. If you omit the freezer area this might be detrimental to the floor output.. While I would imagine you just want to take the chill of the room, I feel it would be better if you raised your freezer 25mm or so above the floor. This would let the air circulate and should you use the room for another purpose sometime then you have full output. Remember an area such as this needs overall floor temp. but not sitting room temps. Cheers [email protected]
