Underfloor Heating Systems

Underfloor heating is great way to heat your home.

Whether your building your own house, adding an extension or simply want to lay over existing floors there’s a product for all scenarios.

We have to remember that underfloor heating is basically heating pipework buried beneath the floor surface whether that’s screed or floor boards. When this type of system is being used the system is slow to react and it can take time for the air within a room warm up. Unlike a radiator system where you will start to feel the room warm within 30 minutes underfloor heating can take a few hours for the target temperature to be met. We recommend that your set point temperature (usually around 21c) is only 3-4 degrees of your higher than your set back temperature. This is try and overcome the drag in meeting set point temperatures.

Benefits of Underfloor Heating
  • Invisible heat.
  • Warm floors to walk on.
  • More hygienic – less dust particles floating around unlike convector radiators.
  • Efficient to run.
  • Less stress on heating system due to lower operating temperatures.
  • More available wall space.
  • Can be fitted almost anywhere.
