The Benefits of Underfloor Heating Systems
There are a whole host of benefits when it comes to underfloor heating systems and here at our blog, we aim to demonstrate some of these benefits so that you can see how under floor heating could be an excellent choice for your home. Some of the major benefits of installing underfloor heating include improved comfort, saving space, improving the look of your home and environmental benefits. In fact, choosing underfloor heating could even save you money in the long run!
Firstly, under floor heating can provide a warm and cosy feeling for your home during the winter months, as the heat is spread much more evenly than with a traditional heating method. You can set your heating to come on first thing in the morning, so that you can step out of bed onto a nice warm floor and enjoy the feeling of all-round warmth as you walk around your house. As the heat from the floor is absorbed by other surfaces in the room, they also warm up and become secondary heating sources. This creates an overall feeling of warmth all through the house, rather than just hot spots near the radiators.
By getting rid of your radiators and switching to underfloor heating, you will also find that you will gain up to 15% more usable space in a room. This is great news from an interior design point of view, as there are no more unsightly radiators to get in the way of your furniture and your rooms will be much easier to decorate too.
Underfloor Heating Systems can also have financial benefits, as it has a lower running cost than traditional heating systems thanks to the energy efficient way that it works. This is because underfloor heating is a type of radiant heating, which means that it works by heat rising from the floor and heating the room. Unlike with radiators, there are no floor draughts and the temperature in the room is much more even, so you will not find yourself turning up the heat to compensate for cold spots. There is also some evidence to suggest that under floor hearing can prevent allergies and sniffles, as the air does not dry out and there are no convection currents circulating dust into the air you are breathing.
