What is Underfloor Heating/ Benefits of Underfloor Heating

What is Underfloor Heating :

There are two main types of underfloor heating, Water which is  known as a wet system and Electric underfloor heating  also known as a dry system.

How Electric System Works : Electric underfloor heating is  placed on top of a layer of floor insulation this ensures the heat travels upwards rather than down. This is laid on a layer of  sand and cement to ensure the surface is completely flat. The heating wires are then connected to your mains supply. It will also include a monitor to regulate the temperature. You can then use a thermostat to control the temperature

How the Water System Works? With a water based underfloor heating system a series of pipes connected to your boiler circulate warm water throughout the floor to heat the space. The system will also be fitted to a thermostat to control the temperature of each room

Benefits of Underfloor Heating :

  • Under floor heating works by radiating heat from the floor to the roof, This allows for an even ambient temperature around the body, This allows pleasant warmth at a lower temperature than conventional heaters.
  • Heat is distributed evenly throughout each room
  • It allows for less wastage as rooms will stay warm even with a draught
  • It enhances the home selling price
  • Low maintenance cost
  • Allows for cleaner air within the room , Its allows a continuous air flow throughout the room while maintaining to heat the room
  • Saves energy
  • More hygienic, Other heat sources don’t heat floors meaning they will remain cold/damp underfloor allowing a perfect breeding ground for dust mites, Underfloor heating reduces dust mites by 80%
  • Flexibility in rooms temperature, Temperature can be set personally to ones desire in each room
  • Do not take up any space
