Features and Benefits
There are a number of features and benefits that occur from using an underfloor heating system over conventional radiator heating.
Firstly see the main differences between traditional radiator heating and underfloor heating:
Underfloor Heating Vs. Radiator Heating
Aesthetics & Labour Saving
You can design your home to suit your needs rather than that of your heating engineer. Cleaning of the floors is easier and wet floors dry very quickly. Prevents discolouration of paintwork, peeling of paper etc.
Comfort & Silence
Radiant heat will provide the highest comfort levels at an even temperature throughout. Compared to radiator systems, there is no noise. No annoying ticking as pipes expand in floor voids.
It has been proven that energy saving from 15-40% can be achieved with underfloor heating.
Small temperature between the floor surface and the air above means the system is practically self regulating.
Health & Hygiene
No dust and the underfloor heating system will help to reduce house dust mites which is a benefit to asthma sufferers. Moisture content is too low, to support dust mites.
Space & Economics
Every square metre of your home can be fully utilised and the cost for our system is very similar to a radiator system.
