Advantages of underfloor heating

Energy efficient heat – If you currently heat your house via your radiators, you will notice they do not heat up the entire room. Radiators work by heating the air closest to them first, hence why if you walk into a room far from where the radiator is placed you will notice its much colder than closer to the radiator. This is commonly referred to as cold spots. Unlike radiators, underfloor heating works by heating your home from the floor up throughout the room without leaving any cold spots. In conclusion, this makes underfloor heating a more energy efficient heating solution and can even save you on average 15% on your heating bills.

Low maintenance and effortless to run – Once you have installed your underfloor heating system, you will require little to no maintenance or upkeep. Controlling your underfloor heating temperature is hassle-free like many central heating systems, they operate via the use of a heating control. With a programmable thermostat you can set certain times you would like your underfloor heating to come on and adjust the temperature to whatever you desire!

Underfloor heating can be installed under a multitude of flooring materials from carpets, wood, laminate and vinyl. Given its flexibility to where it can be installed, underfloor heating is certainly a heating solution available to most homes.
