Underfloor Heating


U

underfloor heating allows you to enjoy the luxury of warm floors during cold winter mornings and a good selling point to push up your property's resale price.

A large system can eliminate the need for radiators, offering extra space and a clean decorative finish. Not only that, underfloor heating is (in a well insulated property) the most efficient way of heating a room.

While not always the best way to provide primary heating for your home, underfloor heating can sometimes be a very affordable solution when you intend to extend your property - in some cases, it can eliminate the need to replace your existing central heating system to cope with the additional space. We have also noticed an increase in people opting for one of the two forms of underfloor heating when they get a new kitchen installed, bathroom fitted or wet room and choose to have stone or tiles laid on the floor.

Types of Underfloor Heating

Water Fed System

With a water fed underfloor heating system, pipes connected to your boiler circulate warm water throughout the floor or you can choose to connect them to a solar water heating system. Heat emitted from an underfloor system is more evenly and efficiently distributed than with a single radiator, meaning you can use water at a lower temperature. This typically improves condensing boiler efficiency by 3% compared to radiators.

Although underfloor heating is generally associated with stone or tiled floors, you can fit it in a carpeted room as long as the carpet and underlay is no more than 1.5 tog.

Electrical System

It works by installing a series of electric wires beneath or within your floors, the type of system you install will depend on the size of the room and the type of flooring it has - options include loose-fit wiring flexible enough to fit into small or awkward spaces, electric cable systems, or heating mats you roll out to cover larger areas.

Electric systems are generally quite thin, they're easier to install in an existing room than a wet heating system but are typically more expensive to run.

If you require or are considering having underfloor heating installed in your property and live in the Glasgow and the surrounding area area, please contact us for further details.
