Underfloor Heating

We install energy efficient underfloor heating on a supply only, first fix or complete installation basis.

What is underfloor heating?

Underfloor heating has been with us since Roman times and is still one of the most energy efficient, and cosmetically attractive ways to to heat your property. It has become increasingly popular in both new builds as well as older properties which are being renovated, and when you look at the considerable benefits that it offers, its no surprise.

With underfloor heating, the floor itself becomes the heating element. This means a more even distribution of heat and, of course because you don’t have unsightly radiators in the rooms, you literally have more living space as well as more flexibility when it comes to arranging furniture. Whats more, each room can be controlled by separate zones giving you better temperature control.

You can also, if necessary, combine underfloor heating with radiators. Our team of experienced heating engineers can handle every aspect of installing, repairing and servicing under floor heating systems in homes and businesses.

Where can underfloor heating be used?

Many people opt to install under floor heating in a new extension or conservatory, and it is also commonly used in bathrooms. An under floor heating system can be combined with a standard central heating system so that some rooms have traditional wall mounted radiators and others have the heating under the floor.

How does underfloor heating work?

Any type of gas boiler can be used as the heat source for the system. Pipes are usually run underneath the floor surface. The heat from the water passing through the pipe transfers directly into the floor. The room is evenly heated because the whole floor area is warm.

What are the benefits of underfloor heating?

With heat emanating from the floor upwards, heat is evenly distributed and comfort levels are maximised. In comparison, the heat from wall mounted radiators is confined to a small area and rises upwards leaving the temperature at floor level much lower. A concentration of heat at head height is not always desirable.

Ease of control

Individual room control is a common feature of under floor heating systems so you can individually adjust temperature settings in each room of the house.

Cost effectiveness and energy efficiency

Under floor heating systems can give you a 15-40% energy saving over traditional heating methods.

Visual and space benefits

Underfloor heating allows you more useable space compared to traditional heating methods. Additionally, wet floors dry more quickly and décor is maintained due to a lack of damp walls.

Health & hygeine: allergy reduction

Because under floor heating helps to keep moisture content levels low, dust mites can be reduced which can aid asthma sufferers and those with other breathing difficulties or allergies.
