What are the benefits of underfloor heating?
There are two types of underfloor heating, water and electric-based systems which contribute towards an energy efficient home. Water systems run hot water through pipes to generate heat, while electric systems utilise wires beneath the floor to create warmth.
These systems are more efficient than radiators, which need to be heated to a high temperature of 65 – 75 degrees Celsius to warm up a room properly. With underfloor heating, the temperature only needs to go to 29 degrees Celsius or less. Ultimately, this will consume less energy and help to save on energy costs.
Electric and water-based underfloor heating systems are easy to install and suitable for both new build homes and older houses. Minimally disruptive, the system will be installed by a qualified professional who’ll answer any questions or concerns.
Flexible temperature control
Once an electric or water system has been installed, each room will have its own thermostat. This means that temperature can be controlled throughout the house, so one room doesn’t need to be as hot as the other.
This has the added benefit of saving money because less energy is used overall.
A safe system
Safety is a major benefit of having an underfloor heating system in the home. Compared to a radiator, the heat generated by the system is better for the air quality in a room. This is because a radiator on a high heat can reduce oxygen levels and cause dust to circulate, which may trigger allergies.
In addition, young children won’t be at risk from touching the hot edges of a radiator and they’ll be able to feel warm and cosy in any room.
Clears up space for design
Radiators take up space in a room, whereas underfloor heating is out of sight and provides much more freedom to decorate. Homeowners can transform a room based on their own preferences, bringing in furniture or artistic pieces with the extra space.
