Underfloor Heating

Water System

Water system underfloor heating can completely replace your radiator system. a water system features a length of pipe set under the floor, pumping hot water around your home’s floor.

As we head into the winter months, wouldn’t it be nice to come home to the feeling of toasty toes – even on hard, wooden floors?

While you can have a conventional radiator system alongside underfloor heating, it is possible to have underfloor heating on its own, and there are many benefits to this. Unlike a conventional radiator system, underfloor heating won’t allow for any cold spots or draughts, and your floor will feel warm to the touch, emitting heat to radiate around your rooms.

No matter whether you choose an electric or water underfloor heating system, your home will be heated by an invisible source. While of course radiators as we know them have become more stylish these days – and it is possible to steer away from the sharp edged, low down hot surface that most of us would have grown up with – even the most curved and high up radiators available will still take up wall space.

Using a water system for your underfloor heating is more cost-effective, as the system covers a larger surface area than radiators can reach fixed to a wall, so is able to heat the room more efficiently. In fact, underfloor heating is around 25% more efficient than a conventional radiator system.

 

Does it work just as well with wooden floors?

Wood is a great conductor of heat, and when it comes to underfloor heating systems, the thinner and denser the wood, the quicker it will heat up and radiate warmth around your room. This ensures that your heating system stays efficient, so that you can enjoy heat without wasting power to get there. To ensure that your underfloor heating doesn’t damage your wooden flooring, you can use a warmup thermostat, which will control the temperature to ensure that it never exceeds 27°C.

We’re seeing more and more people use this option on their home, to keep the look that they like, while enjoying warmth on a usually quite cold surface – no one wants the sharp wake up of a cold floor underfoot in the morning!

 

Why use a professional?

Underfloor heating can provide the perfect balance between heating your home efficiently and getting the look that you would like for your home – whether that means reclaiming your wall space or being able to enjoy the flooring you like while keeping warm. It provides, gentle, comfortable heating throughout your home, while adding value to your property and saving you money in the long run on heating costs.

You can really make the most of these benefits if you ensure that your underfloor heating system is installed properly, as this will ensure that you’re more likely to enjoy consistent heat around your home, rather than repeated calls requesting repair work.
