In recent years underfloor heating has been widely acknowledged as one of the most effective methods of heating.
Bottom up heating
Up to 15% of your home’s heat is lost through your floor. Underfloor heating reduces the energy consumption required for space heating by using low water temperatures to heat the space from the bottom up. Therefore your boiler can run at a lower cost.
Because the floor itself is heated it retains heat far better than traditional radiators which cool down very quickly when turned off, causing the heat they’ve produced to evaporate rapidly.
With underfloor heating, the home will be able to retain heat much better and require less energy to maintain warmth.
How underfloor heating works
Underfloor heating works by heating your home from the floor upwards. This form of radiant heating is different to the heat provided by radiators, which works by convecting warm air around the room. The main advantage of underfloor heating is its high level of performance. Radiant heat means that the warmth is concentrated where you need it most. You will enjoy uniform heat, with no cold spots or draughts, and it is perfect for human comfort. You will not get cold feet and you will keep a cool head.
