Underfloor Heating Systems

Underfloor Heating is generally considered the most efficient way of emitting heat generated by your heat source, be it a boiler or heat pump. This is due to the large surface area being utilised to transfer the heat to the air. Because the whole floor space is being heated, underfloor heating avoids cold and hot spots within the room.

Unlike traditional central heating where radiators heat air that flows around the building (known as convection heating), underfloor heating provides a mix of heat radiated from the floor as well as convection heat, creating a more consistent and comfortable temperature.

Is underfloor heating suitable for me?

Installation costs for underfloor heating vary depending on whether you choose a dry or water-based system, the number of rooms you have, the type of flooring you have, and the type of building. It's also worth noting that costs are often higher for installing upstairs.

Underfloor heating takes longer to heat up and cool down than conventional radiators and, in order for the system to work effectively, your property needs to be well insulated and relatively draught-proof.

Underfloor heating can operate using most types of fuel, including conventional oil and gas, but also most renewable sources. Heat pumps are a particularly good source, as they're better suited to the lower base temperature of underfloor heating systems.
