An efficient and effective heating system is crucial to maintaining the condition of your building, not only does it make it a warmer, more comfortable and inviting environment it also prevents damp and other structural problems.
There are a whole host of heating systems available to choose from, but underfloor heating is quickly becoming one of the most popular, especially amongst new builds. Compared to a traditional radiator based heating system an underfloor heating system can heat your home quicker, cheaper and more consistently. Underfloor heating is especially effective in rooms where you need to warm up a cold floor quickly such as a kitchen, bathroom or conservatory. Our underfloor heating systems can work under a wide variety of surfaces, tile, stone, wood and many more.
When you are weighing up your options for heating systems. It is also fair to say that the immediate installation cost of underfloor heating is higher than other heating systems. If you are only focusing on the short term costs, this may be an issue, but there are long term benefits that come from having this style of heating system. When it comes to underfloor heating running costs, the long term approach offers benefits, so it is important to factor this into your thinking.
Underfloor heating evenly distributes the heat around your home or room in a far more efficient and effective manner than a single radiator is able to, with the system being able to utilise water at a lower level of temperature. This is one way in which using this style of heating system is a more cost-effective way to warm your home, saving money and getting a better return for your money than other forms of heating.
It is very tricky to quantify how many £££’s one system may save you vs the other, this is because each home and each homeowner are unique, one house may be a Victorian terrace with high ceilings, the other may be a modern block of apartments both with drastically different insulation properties. Likewise, one homeowner may like to have the whole home warm and cozy, the other may just like ambient room temperature. However, The Energy Savings Trust has done extensive research and has found that underfloor heating is a far more energy efficient heating system than traditional radiators. Because this system uses a lot less energy your heating bills plummet in unison. It may be that one user or building is able to save more or less than another user or building by converting to underfloor heating, but one thing is constant, they always save. Long-term underfloor heating is a no-brainer.
It is also worth noting that when you come to sell your property if it already has an underfloor system installed it is only going to make your property more attractive to potential buyers.
