underfloor heating reduces allergens

If you’re someone easily affected by dust, dirt or other debris likely to bring up unwanted allergies, it may be time to consider how your home could be prolonging your problems!  Dust allergies are common among many people up and down the country and, while they try their best to avoid situations where conditions such as asthma, sneezing or red and watering eyes may be triggered, there may still be dust mites living in their homes without their knowledge.  Dust mites are thought to be a major cause of allergy triggers, and as they are invisible to the naked eye, taking care of them can be easier said than done.  Believe it or not, a water underfloor heating system or similar could actually help you take care of mites and allergic reactions in the home for good – but how?

Dust mites are distributed via the air when they are disturbed either through foot traffic on carpets or through regular vacuuming – also through the dusting of surfaces.  Bizarrely, traditional radiators are also hotbeds for mite infestations.  This is because convection currents distributed by wall radiators help to propel dust mites over warm air, meaning that while your room may be getting warmer, you’re also spreading dust mites about the house without realising.  With radiant floor heating, however, this risk is eliminated – as your heating system is entirely underfoot, and there is no hot air being circulated into the room.  Heat simply rises from below, thus eliminating a major travel option for those pesky mites!

Underfloor heating solves the problem of Radiant Floor Heating

A water underfloor heating installation is considered a far healthier – and in the long term, cheaper – method of warming up your home.  Traditional radiators are not just considered ugly, outdated or inefficient – but they also spread dust and may be the main trigger for certain allergies or asthmatic symptoms among you and your family.  Radiant floor heating promotes direct heat straight to you through Smart thermostats and when you need it the most – it is always underfoot, and as it is perpetually directed from below, there is no chance of heat escaping through cracks and crevices.  You’ll also find that you simply don’t need to leave your heating on to warm up a room.  It’s an on-demand service!

Healthy, Cost-effective and Easy to use Underfloor Heating

Water underfloor heating systems are considered healthier, more cost-effective and altogether easier to use.  Radiators spread dust mites onto bedding, clothes, and you and your family – while they sometimes cannot be avoided, why give the critters more opportunity to build up dust and to send your noses and eyes streaming?
