Is Underfloor heating more efficient than radiators

Underfloor Heating is incredibly effective all year round, here’s why:

Traditional radiator based central heating systems have been a common sight in our homes since the mid-1800’s, but now as we sit on the other side of the millennium and technology develops, underfloor heating is becoming a much more efficient way to heat your home.

Warm water underfloor heating systems are a cost-effective and efficient method of heating your house and are also relatively simple to install. With an underfloor heating system installed you will soon notice the benefit through the colder winter months, but what about when the mercury starts to rise and we move out of cold winter months and into spring? The good news is you don’t need to worry about a thing! Underfloor heating systems can be completely autonomous, only heating the house if and when it’s needed.

The benefits of underfloor heating vs central heating

One of the main benefits of underfloor heating systems is that you can effectively program the system to operate how or when you want it to work. By using the smart thermostats and underfloor heating control that come as part of your system, you can determine what temperature you would like the system to activate. This means as soon as the temperature drops, the underfloor heating system kicks in and starts to offer you efficient, radiant heat.

Radiators have stood the test of time, but let’s be honest they’re far from perfect. We’ve all come home to a cold house before, rushed to the boiler or thermostat to turn the heating on and patiently waited while the system kicks into action heating first the radiators, then the air around it and slowly the rest of the room. Underfloor heating systems heat the floor surface directly and evenly, ensuring you feel the benefit wherever you are in the room and providing an efficient, even spread of heat across the entire room. On-demand heat, that self-regulates… radiators are starting to sound a little antiquated huh?

Central heating systems may seem like a cost-effective option to start with but in reality they are only cheaper to set up and this only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the real cost of the system. With a system that heats up multiple rooms at a time, underfloor heating only uses a fraction of the energy to ‘power-up’ the system and heat the room. Put simply, as well as being more efficient, in the long term underfloor heating systems are cheaper than central heating.
