Underfloor heating is the most discrete and comfortable form of central heating. Underfloor heating works by producing radiant heat which is evenly distributed from the floor and warms the room from the ground up
WHAT IS UNDERFLOOR HEATING?
With underfloor heating producing radiant heat – comfort tends to be felt sooner and at a lower temperature. There is minimal air flow, keeping the temperature comfortable and even, everywhere in the room.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING?
Underfloor heating is a great way to keep your home warm. It’s lovely to walk on, it distributes heat evenly around each corner of the room, and it frees your home of a range of invasive heating sources including heat pumps and traditional heaters, making more space for paintings, shelf units or even picture windows – or allowing you to create a minimalist look if you wish. It is also more cost efficient.
UNDERFLOOR HEATING FAQ
You may have some questions as to how underfloor heating systems work. We have collated all of the most popular questions that clients ask us.
An underfloor system can be heated by a boiler or air to water heat pump and the energy source is decided by the cheapest available fuel in your region e.g; natural gas, LPG, diesel or wood. The choice of a wood burning boiler (wetback on a large wood fire), however requires effort on your part to keep the wood fire burning constantly.
No, the fuel is used to heat water which is then circulated through the floor.
Yes, we have the ability to use the heat source for more than one job. The advanced control systems allow the boiler to start on demand for each duty and produce the right temperature water for each job.
We can supply a range of control options from programmable thermostats (which control the slab temperature) to the more advanced temperature compensated solutions which measure the outside temperature and pre-emptively modulate the system up and down.
Underfloor heating works best with a concrete floor structure. Wood is a great insulator so we recommend radiator heating for houses with wooden floor structures.
Yes, the floor radiates heat upward into the room keeping the space at a comfortable temperature.
