Traditional underfloor radiator based heating systems have been a staple in homes for many years, and many people have been content with these. Underfloor heating systems have been steadily rising in popularity over the years, and here are just a few of the reasons why people have been moving to underfloor heating systems.  We identify five reasons why people choose underfloor heating:

  1. Low Cost
  2. Versatility
  3. No radiators, aesthetic reasons
  4. Better quality of heat
  5. You can install it yourself


1. Underfloor Heating is Cheap to Run

This is arguably the main reason that people make the move. It has been proven time and time again that an underfloor heating system is considerably more cost effective than a traditional radiator based system

Underfloor heating systems work particularly well with smart thermostats, these allow you to adjust the heating in multiple rooms in your home with ease. You can lower or turn off the heat in rooms that are not being used saving you even more money.


2. Underfloor Heating Systems are Versatile

Underfloor heating is really versatile, and it can be installed in almost any room, regardless of its floor construction. A traditional screed floor installation is the best and most effective underfloor heating system for new builds and extensions. If, however, you wish to retrofit an underfloor heating system to your home solid screed is not the most cost-effective method. There are numerous better-suited options such as fitting the underfloor heating system between the joists of your floor or using pre-routed insulation boards.

3. Underfloor Heating Systems are Discrete/Out of Sight

Underfloor heating no radiators more space less energyRadiators take up a lot of space and they are cumbersome, by comparison, an underfloor heating system is completely out of sight hidden beneath the floorboards providing effective cheap radiant heat. You will only ever notice your underfloor heating system when you need it.


4. Underfloor Heating Creates a Better Quality of Heat

Let’s be honest, nobody likes a cold floor, but in winter we have learned to accept them, underfloor heating systems make this a thing of the past, they turn the surface area of your floor into one cost-effective radiator.


5. Installing Underfloor Heating Yourself Is Easy

One of the biggest misconceptions about underfloor heating is that you need a specialist to install it. We have specially curated DIY packs available in our online underfloor heating store that are designed specifically to be installed yourself. These kits allow you to lay and arrange the pipes with ease however we always recommend that you contact a qualified plumber to connect the system
