Keep your home toasty warm with underfloor heatingPublish date: 2nd October 2019
Is there anything more bracing than stepping foot onto your floors on a cold morning? If you’re anything like us, you’re already starting to feel the winter chill. So, if you’re planning a bathroom overhaul or an entire home renovation, include underfloor heating in your project, as now would be the perfect time to consider options that will ensure your space remains comfortable and toasty warm.
Making your floors winter-proof isn’t always the first thing on your mind when planning a renovation. But anyone who has ever stepped barefoot across a floor with underfloor heating knows how appealing it is. Suddenly even the coldest of flooring can become a pleasure to walk onto on a cold morning. So, if you want to keep those toes warm, consider heating your space with underfloor heating before you tile.
Ease of installation, low running and maintenance costs, compatibility with renewable energy sources and its ‘invisible’ nature are just some of the reasons why you should consider underfloor heating.
How does underfloor heating work?
Underfloor heating is designed to run at lower temperatures than radiators and will work off almost any heat source. Since underfloor is heating objects rather than the air, it is possible to run an underfloor heating system at an air temperature one or two degrees lower than a radiator system to achieve the same level of comfort. This leads to lower heat losses from a building. Consumers have the option of warm water or electric systems. Essentially, they work in the same way; a heating ‘element’ warms a radiating device to create an even spread of heat across a floor.
