Underfloor Heating Is The Best Heating
Underfloor Heating is incredibly efficient Heating is achieved throughout a whole surface area. Bulky space-consuming radiators attached to the wall only emit heat from a small area. By fitting Underfloor Heating, you can remove radiators, freeing up valuable wall space.
Both wet and electric underfloor heating systems are accompanied by insulation which heats up and produces heat for many hours, even once the Heating’s switched off. The insulation properties make for cheap and efficient Heating which uses less energy to heat a given space (when compared to radiators)
Warm floors are highly comforting underfoot, especially in the middle of winter. Once fitted, you’ll enjoy your new Underfloor Heating system for years to come without any expense or hassle. Underfloor Heating systems are simple, mostly maintenance and trouble-free. Most of the systems underground out of harm’s way, rarely are they accidentally damaged.
Wet & Electric Underfloor Heating
Wet system Underfloor heating involves running pipes under the floor. These pipes are connected to a manifold (positioned above ground) which is connected to the Boiler. The pipes are run throughout the entire room and set into the insulation. The pipes draw hot water from the Boiler which heats the pipes and insulation, in turn, warming the room.
Electric System Underfloor Heating involves running electric coils and insulation under the floor. The coils are connected to the mains electrical supply via the consumer unit. Electricity heats the coils and insulation.
- Both wet and electric systems will work with all nearly all types of flooring
- If you don’t have a boiler powered central heating system, then electric underfloor heating’s the only option
- If you do have a boiler powered central heating system you can opt for a wet or electric system
- Wet systems are the most expensive to install but are cheaper to run than electric underfloor heating systems
- Electric systems are cheaper and easier to install but cost more money to run
- A wet system will last around 35 years so will work out the cheaper of the two in the long run
