Underfloor Heating Vs. Central Heating: Which to Choose?

Underfloor heating and central heating are two of the most popular types of heating systems in the UK. Both systems have their own pros and cons, so it can be hard to decide which one is best for you.

In this blog post, we will compare underfloor heating and central heating in terms of cost, efficiency, comfort, and installation. We will also provide some tips on how to choose the right heating system for your needs.

Underfloor heating


Underfloor heating is generally more expensive to install than central heating. However, underfloor heating can be more energy-efficient, which can save you money on your energy bills in the long run. Investing in underfloor heating now can help save you money further down the line, so it is truly dependent on your current budget. If you have the money to spend on underfloor heating, it will serve you well in the long run.


Underfloor heating is a more efficient way to heat your home than central heating. This is because underfloor heating heats the floor directly, which means that the heat is not lost through the walls and ceiling. You can enjoy walking on your stone or wooden flooring with toasty feet, rather than waking up in the morning and walking on freezing-cold flooring.


Underfloor heating is also more comfortable than central heating. This is because underfloor heating provides a more even heat throughout the room. Central heating can often create hot and cold spots in the room. You won’t have to huddle around the radiators or fireplace during winter as there will be a more efficient form of heating in your home.


Underfloor heating is more difficult to install than central heating. This is because underfloor heating requires a special type of flooring and it needs to be installed by a professional. Central heating should also be installed by a heating services engineer in order to safely install the system. However, it is much faster than installing underfloor heating.

Choosing the right heating system

So, which heating system is right for you? It depends on your budget, your needs and your preferences. If you are looking for a more efficient and comfortable heating system, then underfloor heating is a good option. However, if you are on a tight budget, then central heating may be a better choice.
