Benefits

Piping and Floor with Underfloor Heating Pipes laid out
  • Underfloor heating produces radiant heat rising from a large surface area, giving an even distribution of warm air throughout the room. Radiators on the other hand, heat by convection resulting in the floor being the coolest place in the room and the ceiling, the warmest.
  • Having an evenly distributed temperature is far more comfortable than having a single heat source such as a radiator in a room reaching temperatures of up to 70°C. There are no dramatic heat fluctuations in a room with underfloor heating.
  • With underfloor heating there is no visible heat source. Without radiators taking up wall space, room design and layout of furniture becomes more flexible. When decorating, the problem of cleaning and painting behind the radiators is eliminated.
  • Underfloor heating is compatible with most environmentally friendly heating systems including solar power, heat pumps and condensing boilers.
  • Installation of an underfloor heating system is simple and there is little or no maintenance required thereafter.
