​Underfloor Heating - Gentle heating for the whole room.

​Underfloor heating takes up no wall space and give and even, regluar warmth to any room it is installed.

​Underfloor Heating and Radiators

​Radiators and underfloor heating transfer the heat from your boiler to your home. Correct sizing and positioning are vital.

​How Does Underfloor Heating Work?

​​​​A long length of pipe is laid on top of either guiding panels designed to keep the pipes in place or a special membrane. Both options insulate the floor beneath the pipes to minimise heat loss into the ground bellow and produce and even heat throughout the room.

Concrete or screed is then poured over the pipes and guide panels to protect them, keep them in place and provide a flat surface for the top layer of flooring (carpets, lino or similar) providing an invisible heat source for the room

​When heat is needed, warm water from your boiler is pumped through the pipe(s) to gently heat the floor to create one large, low temperature radiator for the whole room.

Why Choose Underfloor Heating?

If you are adding an extension to your property or completely renovating a part of your home, installing underfloor heating has a number of benefits over traditional radiators.

Because the pipework that transfers the heat to your rooms is laid under the flooring it can cover the whole of the room and therefore distribute the heat throughout the room evenly rather than from one part of the room with a traditional wall mounted radiator. This process also results in less air movement so fewer draughts and cold areas in the room.

With underfloor heating the temperature in each room can be controlled from a central location independent of the rest of the property also, since the temperature of the water in the pipework is lower than with a normal radiator, the boiler usage can be more efficient and save you money in the long run.

Lastly, a common reason to choose underfloor heating is so that you do not loose part of your wall space to a radiator as in effect the whole floor becomes a low temperature radiator and is not affected by furniture (there are exceptions), curtains etc.

Why Should I ​NOT Have Underfloor Heating?

The biggest downside of underfloor heating is the installation.

Because the pipework has to be laid under the whole floor, it is only really viable either during the building or if the whole room is being renovated, including the flooring.

The most common case is when installing a new kitchen which includes new flooring as the room is generally taken back to bare walls and floor during this process.

Another drawback is the time it takes for the room to heat up from cold. Generally, underfloor heating gently heats the room most of the time, so the temperature doesn't change very much. If the heating is turned off and the room gets cold, it takes much longer to get the room back up to temperature than with traditional radiators.
