Underfloor Heating

Check List:

  • How old is your heating system?
  • Do you have timber floors?
  • Are you thinking about fitting renewable heating systems?

How does underfloor heating save money?

Underfloor heating works by pumping warm water along coils underneath your flooring. 

Because the surface area is so much bigger than a traditional radiator the temperature needed is much lower. This means the heating system doesn’t have to burn as much fuel.

Do I need a renewable heating system?

Underfloor heating works just as well with traditional heating systems. However it is recommended if you are thinking about fitting a renewable heating system. Because modern boilers are able to operate at lower temperatures they benefit from underfloor heating.

Is it hard to fit?

As you can imagine, fitting underfloor heating can be a serious job. It would involve taking up all your floors. 

It is normally recommended as a measure to be fit on new properties or when serious renovation is taking place. 

If you are planning large renovations then you should specify underfloor from the start, as it will affect flooring types.
