Humans have come a long way since we first harnessed fire to heat ourselves, nowadays depending on your home, budget, location and a number of other factors, there are a whole variety of heating solutions available to you. As with any important decision, it is important to do research before you settle on a heating system, some may end up costing you a lot more than you initially thought, whilst others may not be as effective as you hoped
Central heating is common in most homes these days, this heating system is powered by a boiler or a combi-boiler which tend to be fueled by gas, electricity or a combination of both. As you would guess a boilers primary function is to boil water, this is them pumped around your heating system and radiators in a closed loop, the water is constantly cycled and kept to temperature to generate heat via your radiators. Depending on your home central heating can be an inefficient way to generate heat, pound for pound central heating is one of the most costly heating systems available, even if it is the most common.
Apart from central heating, there are a number of other alternative heating systems available for instance storage heaters, space heaters or even the good old fashioned fireplace. Whether they are gas or electric space heaters consume an exorbitant amount of energy, and they do it constantly. On top of all of this space heaters have been known to take a very long time to heat a room.!
By contrast, the popularity of underfloor heating is surging at the moment, and there are a number of reasons for this. When installed properly an underfloor heating system can reduce both your heating bills and your energy consumptions. Underfloor heating requires water at a lower temperature to generate the same level of heat and comfort. By using radiant heat instead of convection heat underfloor heating also heats up your home quickly and effectively, heating things up evenly from the ground up as opposed to the convection heat generated by radiators which circulate and collects at the top of the room. Think of the surface of your floor becoming one giant heater that heats up the whole room, and all of its contents evenly and effectively.
As we mentioned at the start of this blog there are a plethora of options available to you including underfloor heating, whilst it is not always possible to fit these systems in all rooms without having to raise the floor slightly, we do have an extensive range of kits for almost every scenario, including underfloor heating kits that go between the joists of your floors, underfloor heating kits that fit beneath your tiles, and traditional underfloor heating kits in solid screed flooring.
