Why choose underfloor heating systems over radiators?
Using one of our underfloor heating systems has a host of benefits opposed to traditional heating methods such as radiators, comfort, reliability and reduced costs. Underfloor heating provides an ideal air temperature profile in your rooms through the correct balance of radiant and convected heat.
Heat Where You Need It
Most heating systems heat from the top down, which can leave us feeling uncomfortable. The heat generated by radiators is usually concentrated into relatively small areas, heating the air directly around them. The air then rises up the wall, along the ceiling into the centre of the room. When it reaches the centre of the room, it cools slightly, and then descends towards the floor. The result therefore, is a warm head and cold feet!
This method of heating gives underfloor systems an efficiency advantage over radiators of as much as 26 per cent, with the lower running costs that implies. Further savings stem from the fact that the water, in an under floor water-based system, circulates at a much lower temperature than that used in radiators. Add to that the 2-3 degrees less ambient warmth that is required for comfort, due to the radiation nature of the heat, and the idea begins to add up to worthwhile savings, as well as energy efficiency.
Giving You Total Control
Most underfloor heating systems are controlled on a room by room basis, each running off of its own thermostat. So while you may wish to have a cooler bedroom or kitchen, you will probably like the lounge or bathrooms to be warmer.
Interior Design Flexibility
Installing an underfloor heating system in place of traditional radiators, presents you with more usable room space. You no longer have to arrange furniture around radiators preventing them from being blocked.
Underfloor Heating reduces the number of airborne allergens (substances that cause an allergic reaction), lowering air moisture levels in areas such as bathrooms by drying wet floors and walls. It also helps reduce drafts, aiding people with asthma or other breathing complications.
