Although relatively new, underfloor heating is becoming more common in new build houses and offers an efficient and environmentally friendly option to conventional central heating. Offering a consistent temperature throughout your home, underfloor heating is a natural choice to ensure your comfort. Underfloor heating is especially popular in bathrooms, shower rooms, wet rooms and kitchens where tiles and cold surfaces are present.
This invisible heating system means radiators can be removed allowing you to dictate how you organise furnishings in your home, making full use of the space available in every room, whilst importantly also providing a consistent, comfortable room temperature.
How Does Underfloor Heating Work?
Underfloor heating installation works by warm water being pumped into pipes laid beneath the floor surface in a screed that absorbs heat. Heat rises evenly through the floor to all areas of your rooms, ensuring a consistent and appropriate temperature throughout the house.
With no radiators involved with an underfloor heating system, heat isn’t concentrated in a small area, instead, it is spread evenly throughout each room, radiating upwards. This means that the underfloor heating system doesn't need high temperatures to work effectively. With an underfloor heating system there are different zones that can be controlled separately, each individual room can be assigned its own temperature via a thermostat. This means you can ensure your living room and bedrooms are nice and cosy, while smaller areas or areas that you spend less time in such as the kitchen and bathroom can be set to a lower temperature to save energy and money.
What are the Benefits of Underfloor Heating?
Comfort & Efficiency
Underfloor heating keeps your entire home warm and comfortable whilst also saving you up to 30% on energy bills. It’s also better for the environment as you only use energy when you need it. Underfloor heating provides consistent heat to each room than a traditional radiator as warm air rises consistently across the floor space rather than radiating out from one or two sources.
simpler room Design
Having underfloor heating means there is no longer any need for radiators on your walls and as a result you’re granted much more freedom when designing the interior of each room. Radiators often dictate where you can place furniture, without them, you can configure each space as you see fit, creating an uncluttered living area.
a safer and cleaner home
A radiator-free living space eliminates the risk of children burning themselves as well as ensuring nobody will catch themselves on the corner if they trip or fall. Removing radiators in your home also makes for a cleaner space as underfloor heating reduces moisture content and minimises dust mites that can cause allergies.
Flexibility & Consistency
Installing underfloor heating allows you to control the temperature of each room individually, meaning you can take a flexible approach to how you heat your home, keeping occupied areas warm without wasting energy heating empty rooms. Radiator systems are often controlled by one central thermostat that leads to a lot of wasted energy, this is completely eliminated with an underfloor heating system.
With underfloor heating you won’t be concerned about constant maintenance as this type of heating doesn’t have any moving parts and is much less prone to problems. With expert installation any problems with the pipes will be identified and fixed immediately, so you don't find yourself paying for repairs at a later stage. So, in the long run you’re saving even more with minimal maintenance costs.
Modern underfloor heating doesn't make any noise, meaning the creaking and groaning sounds you’ll associate with radiators, when the heating first comes on, are eliminated. You can be rid of the rumbling of a traditional heating system and enjoy a warm comfortable home in peace and quiet.
