What Are The Benefits of Underfloor Heating?

If you’d like to add a little luxury to your home, consider underfloor heating installation. Saving you money in the long run, there are many advantages to underfloor heating.


Find out everything you need to know below.



Underfloor heating


Greater energy efficiency

Underfloor heating can be far more energy-efficient than typical radiators. This is because the heat is distributed evenly throughout the room, turning the floor itself into what is known as a ‘radiant heater’. As a result, the heater doesn’t have to be on for long at all before the whole room reaches the desired temperature, thus saving energy in the process. This is a great option for cold winter nights or rooms that have low exposure to natural sunlight.


Cost-effective

Underfloor heating is a fantastic cost-effective investment for your home. While you might have to pay a bit for installation, this form of heating rarely ever requires any form of maintenance once it has been fitted - this applies to both electric and water based underfloor heating.


More space

Underfloor heating eliminates the need for visible radiators, leaving you with increased living space. Your walls are free to do whatever you want with them, whether that is decoration or having a certain household item placed in front. This is a great way to make small spaces appear bigger and improve the overall appearance of your home.


Improved health and hygiene

With radiators and convection heating, floors remain cold and dampness at ground level can occur. This makes them the perfect breeding ground for the dreaded dust mite that is prone to causing allergies and sickness. You’re also likely to experience mould, especially in cold, damp bathrooms, which can cause health problems like asthma attacks and allergic reactions.


However, thanks to the floor being heated thoroughly, any dust mites and other creepy crawlies will find that the underfloor heating makes their environment too warm and dry for them to live and breed in. It will also prevent a build up of mould, ensuring you’ll be living in a much healthier home environment.


Flexibility in temperature

With underfloor heating, each room will typically have its own dedicated thermostat so there’s no obligation for one room to be kept as warm as others. This is a great feature for people who like to manage their own temperature in their own spaces – after all, some of us feel the cold more than others.
