How does Underfloor Heating work?

Underfloor heating can work with any heating system from heat pumps to combi boilers. The design of a new underfloor heating system will depend on the heat source that you choose and can connect to most existing central heating systems.

Warm water from the boiler is circulated through the floor in continuous lengths of pipe warming the entire floor area making this a large low temperature storage radiator. This room is controlled by an independent room thermostat.

Underfloor heating uses radiant heat ensuring that you feel comfortable even at a lower air temperature than that produced by a more conventional heating system. With underfloor heating all the floor is heated so no matter where you are in the room its all the same temperature. The heat rises and surrounds you and your furniture leaving you with warm feet and a cool head. A radiator rises to the ceiling and slowly works its way down leaving one side of the room where your radiator is hot and the opposite side cool, this also means you have a warm head and cold feet.
