Should you install your underfloor heating system in the warmer months?

Underfloor heating systems deliver effective, long-lasting heat, which is why it has rapidly become a firm favourite for households all over the UK. The ability to control the temperature and comfort levels in a room via either a simple thermostat or a smart thermostat allows you to control the heating of your home more accurately, and therefore reduce your energy bills. The real question is should you wait until winter to install your underfloor heating kit or is it a good idea to get your underfloor heating system installed in the warmer months? Personally, we think that it’s better to have it ready and installed before you need it, that way you are guaranteed it’s there when you need it!

Temperature Sensitive Underfloor Heating System

Arguably one of the biggest reasons people buy underfloor heating systems is that whilst you can definitely feel the benefit of underfloor heating, you rarely feel the cost, this is due mainly to their energy efficiency. People are often wary about installing their underfloor heating kit during the warmer months because they are worried about incurring running costs, however, in reality, there is nothing to worry about, underfloor heating systems can be left to run autonomously, only firing up if and when they are needed. The great thing about underfloor heating systems is that they give you the ability to control each room independently, leaving certain rooms off while they are not in use, or setting a temperature for the underfloor system to start warming up. Put simply when the sun is out your warm water heating system remains dormant, however as soon as the temperature drops the system kicks in.

Planning Your Underfloor Heating Installation

Another fact to take into consideration when you are planning the installation of your heating system is the actual process itself. Are you really going to want to lay your underfloor heating system and the pipes, pour the screed, call in the electrician and plumber all in the middle of winter, when in reality all you want is to be sitting at home with your feet up nice and warm! If you have a look at our underfloor heating store you will see that you can buy online everything you need to install the system yourself, further decreasing your underfloor heating systems cost. However, if something didn’t exactly go to plan during the process, is winter the time of the year you want to risk being without heating?
