Benefits of Underfloor Heating Systems

 

Underfloor heating offers a luxurious and energy-efficient way to heat your home or commercial space, creating a haven of comfort from the ground up. But beyond the initial feeling of warmth, underfloor heating boasts a range of advantages that can transform any living space.

Underfloor heating offers a luxurious and innovative approach to warming your home. Here’s a breakdown of the key benefits you can enjoy:

  • Unmatched Comfort:  Experience consistent heat radiating gently upwards from the floor.  No more cold spots or drafts, just a blissful feeling of warmth throughout the room.
  • Energy Efficiency:  Underfloor heating operates at lower temperatures compared to traditional radiators. This, combined with efficient heat distribution, translates to lower energy consumption and reduced heating bills.
  • Space Saving:  Underfloor heating frees up valuable wall space due to not needing radiators, allowing for greater flexibility in furniture placement and creating a cleaner, more streamlined aesthetic.
  • Sustainable Choice:  By operating efficiently at lower temperatures, underfloor heating systems contribute to a greener environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
  • Versatility:  Underfloor heating can be installed in various rooms, including kitchens, bathrooms, and conservatories, providing a comfortable and consistent heat source throughout your home.

Underfloor heating offers a compelling combination of comfort, efficiency, and style. It’s an investment that can enhance your living experience and potentially add value to your property.

Underfloor Heating Cost

 

Underfloor heating offers a luxurious and efficient way to warm your home, and there are several factors that influence the cost of the system. 

The type of underfloor heating system, whether that be wet underfloor heating or an electric heating system, will vary. 

The size of the room, and amount of rooms you want underfloor heating installed in will influence the end quote. 

The complexity of the project will also come into play here; for example, new builds and renovations are pretty straightforward jobs when installing underfloor heating systems. It is possible to install them in older buildings, but the project scope will be different compared to the others. 

Finally, labour and materials will be included in the quote. Luckily, our sister company, Clockwork Screed, is able to supply and install the liquid screed resulting in a quicker job completion and less fuss obtaining quotes. Just one seamless experience!

Underfloor Heating FAQs

 

♦ Which is better, water or electric underfloor heating?

This depends on your priorities. Water underfloor heating systems take a little longer to install, but have a cheaper running cost; whereas, electric underground heating is quicker to install,  but more expensive to run in the long term.

 

♦ Is underfloor heating expensive to run?

Water-based underfloor heating systems, especially when paired with a condensing boiler or heat pump, can be more energy-efficient in the long run. This is because they operate at lower temperatures than radiators, reducing energy waste. Additionally, the radiant heat distribution of underfloor heating can create a more comfortable feeling at lower air temperatures, potentially leading you to use it less overall.

 

♦ Can you put underfloor heating under a carpet?

Yes, both types of underfloor heating are compatible with carpet.

 

♦ Does underfloor heating work with wooden floors?

Yes, it can work well under laminate flooring and other engineered woods. We would advise against using authentic wood flooring as it can twist and warp due to its natural moisture content.

 

♦What is the lifespan of underfloor heating/how long does underfloor heating last?

For water underfloor heating the pipes must comply with UK industry standard DIN 4726, which means they must last at least 50 years. Electric underfloor heating usually lasts at least 25 years under a warranty.

PROJECT FOCUS

High end Residential, Manchester

We planned and installed an underfloor heating system into a contemporary home in Manchester. Not only that, we finished the installation with a smooth, even and high quality liquid floor screed.

Our team worked with the end user’s architect, ensuring the home benefitted with a visually striking but also inherently comfortable and environmentally conscious heating solution.

The client now enjoys an enhanced living experience, reduced energy bills, and an aesthetically uncompromised living space that flows through the whole house.
