What Is Underfloor Heating?

Underfloor heating delivers warmth through a circuit of pipes buried beneath the finished floor, and the heat is distributed at a lower temperature, which is cost-effective.

Underfloor heating is best installed in a new build or large renovation project but can also be retrofitted into existing rooms.

The Benefits Of Underfloor Heating

Even Heat Distribution

There are no cold spots or drafts because the heat is distributed evenly across the entire floor area. This means that the temperature in a room is consistent, making it more comfortable.

Energy Efficiency

Underfloor heating is more energy-efficient than traditional heating systems because it operates at a lower temperature. This means that it requires less energy to heat a room, which can result in lower energy bills.

Space Saving

Because underfloor heating is installed beneath the floor, it doesn’t take up any wall or floor space, which can be particularly useful in smaller rooms.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Underfloor heating is hidden from view, so it doesn’t interfere with the design of a room. No radiators or other heating elements need to be accommodated, leaving the room clutter-free.

Best Type Of Floor Covering With Underfloor Heating

The existing flooring must be removed to enable the installation of underfloor heating. The new floor covering you choose must be compatible with the heating. Carpets, for example, are not recommended because they hold the heat down beneath the surface. Underfloor heating works best with tile and stone because these materials have high thermal conductivity meaning the heat disperses upwards quickly.
