Underfloor Heating Systems – A Convenient Solution
A hot water underfloor heating system is widely considered to be the most effective and economical way to heat a property, with both domestic and commercial buildings benefitting greatly from having underfloor heating installed. Working on the principle that hot air rises, warm water is pumped through a series of under floor pipes, heating the floor above them, and thus the living space.
The Benefits of Wet Underfloor Heating Systems
There are many benefits to installing an underfloor heating system: It reaches the desired temperature quickly. The floor heats evenly, and the rising hot air warms the room effectively; a radiator will heat the area around them, leaving the rest of the room cooler. It is, therefore, cheaper to run than conventional radiators.
- Radiators are always a decorator’s nightmare! With an underfloor heating system,furniture can be placed anywhere, and there are no ugly metal radiators to consider.
- A correctly installed hot water system is designed to require no maintenance and should continue running for a lifetime.
- An underfloor heating system is much better for allergies as dust is not collected between radiators and walls, and the air contains more moisture than the drying heat of radiators. This can improve problems, such as asthma.
- A radiator, being metal, can be a danger to energetic children who may run into it, causing bruises and possibly even burns.
How Do You Install Underfloor Heating?
A wet underfloor heating system can be introduced with the initial build or retro fitted. This can be easily carried out as a DIY project. It can sit underneath almost any flooring choice, including tile, wood and carpets, and can be used to heat whole houses, or just one small area, such as a bathroom, kitchen or conservatory.
