Underfloor heating can bring many benefits over other heating systems, let’s take a look at what it can offer your home.
Evenly heat the whole room
Underfloor heating doesn’t just mean your feet will be kept nice and warm so you don’t have to wear slippers, they’ll evenly distribute heat from floor to ceiling. Units of a certain size can even heat a larger area than radiators.
More space around the home
You might be surprised by how much more space you can benefit from by just removing radiators. Choosing underfloor heating over radiators will give you the freedom to push sofas, drawers or bookshelves right up against any wall you desire.
A wet system could potentially reduce your heating bills
By operating at a lower temperature than more traditional heating systems, radiators need to be at a high temperature to heat a room, you could soon see a saving in your energy bills if you install a water system. Due to needing electricity to operate, dry systems are more expensive to run.
Works with different types of flooring
Underfloor heating can be fitted under many different types of flooring, including:
- Carpet and rug flooring
While it can be fitted under all of these different floorings, there will be differences in terms of how quickly and efficiently the heat transfers to the surface. You’ll get the best results from a surface that has good conductivity such as tile or stone but there will be a compatible system for just about any type of flooring.
Prevents dust circulating
Not only can dust gather behind radiators, making them hard to clean, they also circulate dust around the room when they’re on. Underfloor heating on the other hand doesn’t do this, which is great news for anyone that suffers with asthma or dust allergies.
Increase the value of your home
Underfloor heating is often seen as a modern and highly advanced way of heating a home, which can give a sense of luxury to potential buyers if you’re looking to sell your home.
