So What Is A Underfloor Heating System?
Underfloor Heating Systems work by distributing a lower temperature of warm water through a circuit of pipes beneath the finished floor. Concrete has a high thermal mass meaning it will store and distribute heat extremely well. Heat is monitored and controlled by intelligent thermostats to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the property or individual zones. Any heat source can be used including conventional boilers and renewable ground/air heat source pumps.
Underfloor Heating Systems will ensure your rooms will stay warm for longer after your heating is switched off than would be the case with a traditional heating system. For this to be consistently effective we either recommend our in-slab or in-screed systems. These systems can be used for a full slab.
Some other benefits of using underfloor heating are:
Improved heat distribution – As the heating system is underneath the entire floor, if it is well planned and installed, heat will be nicely and evenly distributed throughout the home. This will keep your feet warm all year round and takes the chill off the cold concrete.
Interior design – With no need for traditional heaters like radiators, a minimalist design is created offering a high-end, luxurious look. As no space restrictions are created, the design of the home remains non-impacted. No radiators, grills, or vents that can become visibly dirty are on display. Everything related to the heating is below the floor.
Cost-effective – Although the outlay may be expensive with installation costs, in the long run, underfloor heating is highly cost-effective. heating bills will be lower, therefore, saving you money.
Comfort – Temperature can be adjusted depending on preference and time of year. Concrete’s thermal mass also allows you to reduce the temperature, creating a cooler home when desired. All of this can provide you with high levels of comfort while consuming significantly less energy. It’s also a win-win for the environment.
Quietness – Traditional heating systems, including radiators, often have a tendency to grunt and groan as they work. Underfloor heating systems are quite the opposite and are generally quieter. Your home will become noticeably silent, filled simply with pure luxurious warmth.
Health and safety – Underfloor heating is both child and pet safe. No flames or hot surfaces will be exposed within your home, providing you with less worry about a chance of an individual being burned or hurt.
There is no doubt that underfloor heating provides the safest, cleanest, and most luxurious heat available. It is hidden away and does not impede the design of a room or house. Simply pure luxurious warmth.
