Energy-efficient underfloor heating installations
There are two types of radiant heating that can be used for an underfloor heating system; water and electric. Both will create consistent warmth, water systems use pipes to run hot water through, and electric systems use electric wiring.
Both work in exactly the same way by heating from the ground up, traditional radiators need to be heated to a high temperature (65-75 degrees) to punch the hot air into the room (and even then you get cold spots) whereas underfloor heating will do a much better job and consistent heating at about 29 degrees, thereby consuming less energy and saving you money.
Radiant heat provides an average saving of 15% on heating bills thanks to the efficient way it warms a home
Stylish, safe and comfortable
Underfloor heating works well with many floor coverings including laminate, wood, tile, stone, carpet and more. This, coupled with having no need for radiators, means that you can design your home without the awkwardness and bulk that radiators deliver, knowing that your heating system is tucked out of the way and there are no sharp edges or hot surfaces for young fingers to explore!
The air quality from radiant heat is also superior since it keeps the air fresh and oxygen-rich.
Installation & Maintenance
Typically an underfloor heating installation will take 1-2 days per room, so they are suitable for a new-build or home renovation.
Electric underfloor heating can offer rapid installation times, and much-reduced servicing so are typically the preferred choice for many homeowners. Water underfloor heating systems may require the occasional review to make sure everything is working correctly and typically take a little longer to install, but do provide lower running costs.
