How does underfloor heating work?
Underfloor heating is basically a series of pipes under the floor that has hot water pumped through them, giving you a silent and invisible source of heat. There are two main types of underfloor heating systems; electric or hydronic. Electrical resistance elements can be installed as the primary system or alternatively, a hydronic system uses pipes with fluid flowing through them.
Why underfloor heating over conventional radiators?
- No cold spots – With the heating coming from the whole floor instead of one side of the room, there are no cold spots
- Uses baron space – Underfloor heating uses floor space that isn’t visible or in use, giving you more room space
- Very low maintenance – Underfloor heating needs just one checkup every 10 years, which can be included within your standard electricity check. This keeps underfloor heating costs to a minimum.
- Versatile – Underfloor heating consists of a series of pipes that can be tailor-made to fit and meet the requirements of any type of room
- Efficiency – Underfloor Heating can be a lot more efficient than your existing radiator system, which will save you money in the long run
- Ideal for new builds and extensions – Underfloor heating installations are best suited to new builds and extensions because we can integrate it in the building process, making the installation quicker and cheaper
