WHAT IS UNDERFLOOR HEATING?

Underfloor heating is a form of central heating that achieves indoor climate control by circulating warm water through a network of pipes or using electric heating elements embedded in the floor. This method results in radiant heat that evenly warms up the entire room, from the floor up. No more cold feet on chilly mornings!

Unlike traditional heating systems that rely on radiators to warm the air, underfloor heating works by radiating heat upward from the floor, ensuring an even distribution of warmth around the room. This makes it a highly effective method of heating your home.

HOW DO DUCTED HEATING SYSTEMS WORK?

Underfloor heating can be either a ‘wet’ system, which circulates warm water through pipes in the floor, or a ‘dry’ system, using electric coils. Here’s a simple step-by-step breakdown of how each system works:

  1. Heat Generation: The system connects to a heat source, such as a boiler or heat pump. This heats the water that will be circulated through the underfloor pipes.
  2. Heat Distribution: This warm water is then pumped through a series of pipes laid out beneath the floor, transferring the heat to the floor surface.
  3. Radiant Heating: As the heat rises from the floor, it warms up the room evenly and consistently, providing a comfortable temperature throughout.
  4. Recycling the Air: Any remaining cool air is drawn back into the central heating unit via return air grilles and ducts, where it is reheated and circulated back into the home. This process ensures an efficient cycle of heating with minimal waste.

Dry Underfloor Heating System:

  1. Heat Generation: Electric cables or heating mats are installed beneath the floor. When the system is activated, the electric resistance within these elements generates heat.
  2. Heat Distribution and Radiant Heating: The heat is directly transferred to the floor, which then radiates the warmth upward into the room, providing a comfortable and consistent temperature.

WHY CHOOSE UNDERFLOOR HEATING?

Underfloor heating systems come with numerous benefits that make them a preferred choice for many homeowners:

honeycomb_deco

Improved Comfort: Underfloor heating provides even warmth across the floor, making the room uniformly comfortable. Plus, there’s the added luxury of warm floors underfoot, particularly pleasing in bathrooms or on cold winter mornings!

Efficiency: Underfloor heating systems distribute heat more evenly compared to traditional radiators. As a result, they can operate at lower temperatures while achieving the same level of warmth, making them more energy-efficient and potentially saving you money on energy bills.

Space-Saving: With the heating system beneath the floor, there’s no need for radiators. This frees up wall space, allowing greater flexibility in room layout and design.

Healthier Environment: Underfloor heating reduces the circulation of dust and allergens compared to forced-air heating systems, providing a healthier living environment.

Quiet Operation: Underfloor heating operates silently, making your home a more peaceful place.

Evenly Distributed Heat: Due to the even distribution of heat, these systems can operate at lower temperatures while still providing the desired warmth.

COST-EFFECTIVENESS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Investing in underfloor heating represents a strategic long-term decision that can yield substantial benefits both in terms of comfort and cost-efficiency.

While the upfront costs might be higher than a conventional radiator-based system, the extended lifespan, reduced operational expenses, and a potential increase in property value make it a worthy consideration.

INITIAL INSTALLATION COSTS

The immediate financial aspect to consider when choosing underfloor heating is the initial installation cost. Factors influencing these costs include the size of the area to be heated, whether you opt for a ‘wet’ or ‘dry’ system, and the complexity of installation.

Wet systems, which use hot water pumped from your boiler or a heat pump, tend to cost more upfront due to the intricacies involved in laying the pipes. Dry systems, using electric coils or heating mats, are generally less expensive to install and are often chosen for smaller areas or retrofit projects.

However, it’s essential to view these costs as an investment in the future comfort and value of your home, rather than a mere expense.

OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY AND ENERGY SAVINGS

Where underfloor heating really shines is in its operational efficiency. This efficiency can result in substantial energy savings over time, lowering your monthly utility bills.

Underfloor heating systems distribute heat more evenly compared to traditional radiators, reducing the amount of energy needed to heat a room to a comfortable level. Due to the even distribution of heat, these systems can operate at lower temperatures while still providing the desired warmth. This results in less energy consumption, and therefore, less spending on energy bills.

Furthermore, underfloor heating can be up to 25% more efficient than radiators when paired with a modern condensing boiler, and up to 40% more efficient when running with a heat pump.

LOW MAINTENANCE COSTS

Underfloor heating systems have fewer moving parts than traditional heating systems, reducing the potential for breakdowns and the need for regular maintenance. This means you save not only on potential repair costs but also on the time and inconvenience associated with routine maintenance.

Once installed, an underfloor heating system can run for years with minimal upkeep, offering peace of mind along with steady, consistent heat.

INCREASE IN PROPERTY VALUE

Although this might not be a direct saving, it’s worth considering that having underfloor heating can increase the value of your property. It’s a desirable feature that can make your home stand out in the real estate market, potentially offering a higher return on investment if you choose to sell.

In summary, the financial benefits of underfloor heating extend far beyond the initial installation. From ongoing energy savings to increased home value, underfloor heating is a savvy investment that pays dividends in comfort, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness over the long term. By considering the broader financial picture, it’s clear that underfloor heating can be a smart choice for those looking to enhance their home’s heating system.

Liam fitted a new radiator for us in our kitchen. The radiator is literally hanging off the wall. The pipes look like they were fitted with a knife & fork. The workmanship and finish of the job is horrendous. I kick myself every time I look at it for letting Liam leave with the...

I needed a quick quote for some work and Liam turned up quickly and gave me a quote there and then. He's very polite, very patient with a barking dog 😅. He was also able to fit me a new boiler and create more usable worktop space for me. Top blokes!
