Underfloor heating creates a comfortable, warm room using less energy - cutting your costs and reducing greenhouse gases.
Heat from traditional radiators rises, meaning that the hottest part of the room is the ceiling. With an underfloor heating system, the heat moves from the ground upward - which means the parts of the room that are the warmest are the first 1.7m - the area we live in.
Healthier and more comfortable
The gentle radiant heat from underfloor heating doesn't dry air in the same way that radiators do, leaving moister air that is kinder to your lungs and to your furniture. Combined with lower dust and mite levels that come from the 'hard' floor finishes that are frequently used, this makes underfloor heating ideal for people with sensitive skin and breathing conditions.
Underfloor heating keeps air stiller, as it's not circulated by convection from hot radiators, meaning you feel less drafts, and less dust is stirred up. This combined, with underfloor heating keeping the usable parts of a room warmer, makes it a cosy and cost effective way to heat your home.
Underfloor heating works with any floor surface - tiles, wood, stone or carpet.
A boiler heats a water supply which is circulated through pipes, similar to traditional radiators - apart from running at a lower temperature. The heat from the pipes is then conducted through to the floor surface and into the room.
Typically the pipes are laid out in a careful pattern, and then covered with a screed to encase the pipework and spread the heat evenly.
