Can Underfloor Heating Save Energy?

With the energy crisis raging all around us at the moment and many of us having to face significantly higher bills, thoughts may inevitably turn to what home improvements could be carried out that have the potential to save both energy and money at the same time.

One such investment could be underfloor heating, which could make a big difference to energy consumption, thus lowering bills as a result.

According to Ideal Home, if this kind of heating is installed correctly in a well-insulated property, it is actually one of the most efficient ways to heat a building. Because these systems operate lower temperatures than radiators, they can deliver the same level of comfort and warmth.

One of the biggest benefits is that they warm the rooms throughout the house evenly, which is a more efficient approach than traditional radiator systems. If your home suffers from draughty, chilly spots, you’ll find that these also disappear if you go for underfloor heating.

Expert installation is required, however, to ensure that the heat is distributed evenly, with pipework laid out neatly and at regular intervals. Any irregularities in spacing will cause issues later down the line.

As well as ensuring the warmth and comfort of your home at a reduced cost, underfloor heating also has the added benefit of reducing dust circulation and distribution. 

Convection heating currents can prove problematic for those with asthma and dust allergies, but underfloor heating has a cleaner radiant heat, so can ease symptoms and help promote health and wellbeing.
