The Benefits Of Underfloor Heating

With wholesale gas prices increasing, the end of the energy price cap coming in April, and news that traditional gas central heating boilers will be phased out, many homeowners will be looking for ways to reduce their utility bills, and assessing how they heat their homes.

When investing in a new heating system for the house, it is important that is efficient, practical, and does the job of keeping your home warm. When installed correctly, in a well-insulated home, underfloor heating (UFH) is one of the most efficient ways to heat a property. We have a look at some of the benefits of underfloor heating.

Increased comfort

Underfloor heating provides an evenly distributed and comfortable level of heat compared to traditional radiators, which can emit an uncomfortable level of heat, and cause the air to dry out. UFH can help preserve moisture in the air, helping to maintain a comfortable atmosphere.

More control and fewer costs

Traditional central heating will have one master thermostat control, whereas, with UFH, you will be able to program individual temperates for each room to meet individual heating requirements. The ability to be able to heat only the rooms you need, as well as far greater control, will provide a significant saving.

Limited Maintenance

Once installed, inspected and tested, and covered with a layer of screed, you can be assured that your UFH will not need to be dug back up for maintenance, thus avoiding costly repairs and call-out charges.

Potential Health Implications

Convection heating currents can serve to aggravate asthma sufferers and people who may have dust allergies because the currents circulate and distribute a greater level of dust throughout the room and household. Underfloor heating provides a cleaner radiant heat causing less discomfort to sufferers.

Underfloor heating in your home or business can lead to improvements in cost, health, maintenance and flexibility.
