Water underfloor heating installation is an excellent alternative to radiators, as it is effective at heating larger rooms. Being at home so much over lockdown amid the global pandemic will no doubt mean that you’ve been looking around your house, seeing all sorts of areas just ripe for improvements here and there.
With restrictions gradually being lifted, you’re now able to have tradesmen come to your house to carry out projects, so if you’ve been thinking of transforming the property with underfloor heating, having new shutters installed throughout or even upgrading to double glazing, you can start making some calls.
Where underfloor heating is concerned, there are two main types – electric or warm water underfloor heating (or wet) systems, with pipework installed in the floor so it acts as a radiator, warming living spaces from the ground up. With two different systems, an underfloor heating installer can help with pipework fittings and installation.
Choosing a system that covers the entire house means a separate pipe will run into every room, so you’re able to control which rooms are heated and when, which means you don’t have to heat any rooms that aren’t being used.
If being eco-friendly is becoming a growing concern for you, underfloor heating could be a great choice, since radiators are less efficient and they’re also less effective at heating larger rooms. Underfloor heating can help you reduce your energy demand, so you’ll be helping the planet but also reducing your bills at the same time.
The best coverings for this kind of heating system are something like tile or stone, as they absorb heat and then radiate this back into the room. Timber isn’t as efficient because it insulates heat, instead.
