Underfloor heating has become a much more affordable option, now installed in more and more homes. Installing underfloor heating can actually save you money by helping to reduce your energy bills which can also help to increase the value of your home. The different types of systems available means it can now be easily installed to both new and existing homes, offering a great number of added benefits.
Despite their popularity, radiators are actually an inefficient way to heat and insulate a room. They only insulate and heat around where the radiator is hung, meaning you must have your system set very high if you want to heat the entire space. This will waste energy and also leave you with varying temperature differences across the room. Because heat rises, a large percentage of the warmth generated by a radiator can often disappear through the ceiling rather than going where you want it.
Underfloor heating systems are able to emit even heat across an entire space, with the warmth it produces rising at a temperature throughout the space leaving no cold spots. Because these systems are able to emit heat over wider spatial area, you can keep your heating at a lower setting and yet still get a nice and even temperature. In turn, you’ll use less energy and so can potentially save money and waste a lot less energy.
As a type of heating, we are able to fit it under stone, tiles, wood and also carpet, in both new builds and existing homes. Having underflooring heating and getting rid of your radiators, option, will also free up masses of wall space and allow you to use your rooms more flexibly. There really is a luxurious feeling when you can walk over a warm floor at the end of a cold day!
