Underfloor heating works by circulating warm water through a series of continuous pipe loops fitted underneath your floor. The pipework creates a large radiant surface which heats your home from the floor upwards. This radiant form of heating is very different to the convected heat provided by radiators. Radiators work by drawing cold air across your floor, heating it and then convecting it upwards towards the ceiling.
The use of radiant heat rather than convected heat will provide you with a number of significant benefits.
The main advantage of underfloor heating is it’s high level of performance. Radiant heat means that the warmth is concentrated where you need it most. Room temperatures higher up are usually around 2 degrees C lower than at floor level.
So it’s perfect for human comfort – you won’t get cold feet and you will keep a cool head!
It’s highly controllable heat too. You can make each room a separate zone, varying heat output according to the time of day and location. You’ll enjoy uniform heat even in the largest rooms, with no cold spots and no draughts caused by air circulation. It’s even good for furniture, with its gentler, more even heat and smaller variations in humidity.
Underfloor heating is also extremely discrete . With nothing showing above floor level, it does not interfere with either your living space or your décor. This leaves you free to make the most of every square foot of your floor and wall space.
It is also a cost effective option. Although installation costs are generally higher thank traditional heating methods, underfloor heating’s superior efficiency means that your running costs will be significantly lowered so the ongoing savings on your energy bills quickly outweigh your higher initial outlay.
Underfloor heating is even a practical option. It can be used with most types of floors and floor coverings. It is also suitable for use with all sorts of wet central heating systems. It is easy to install and gives you a number of usage options. It can be installed throughout your house, on one level only or in individual rooms. It can be used alone or combined with radiators or other heating systems elsewhere in your home.
