What is underfloor heating
Underfloor heating is a great way to evenly and effectively heat your home. It removes the need for radiators, freeing up space in your house.
Underfloor heating runs at far lower temperatures than traditional radiators. When you couple it with a renewable energy source like a heat pump, it’s the most efficient heating system.
You’ll notice a consistent heat throughout each room from floor to ceiling. In contrast, radiators heat the top of the room first, causing pockets of warm and cold air.
Modern underfloor heating systems are compatible with most homes. No matter what flooring type you currently have, there’s a method for installing underfloor heating and making your heating system much more efficient. There’s no need to dig up existing flooring either – we can install overlay systems which add just 30mm to floor height.
Warm and cosy – an even distribution of constant heat under your feet
Efficient - heats the room evenly from the ground up at lower temperatures – much more efficient than radiators which heat up the air around them
Save space – underfloor heating is invisible, as the tubes are hidden underneath flooring. This removes the need for radiators, reducing clutter and giving a clean, modern appearance
Safe and clean – no exposed hot pipes, making it safe for children and the elderly. Reduces airborne circulation of dust and dust mites, creating a healthier and cleaner environment. Tiles and wood dry more quickly after being cleaned
Silent – you won't hear pipes clanking
Electricity is the energy source of the future, renewable sources will become the norm.
The global and local goal is to have net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 - this is ambitious!
The goal of the energy transition is independent from fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are in decline on the electricity market as they are too harmful to the climate and ever more scarce. Currently, heating UK homes accounts for 14% of the overall carbon emissions levels, which is too high.
Nowadays, alternative energies from the sun, wind and water are smart solutions to the climate crisis and the protection of our planet.
Renewable heating systems like air or ground source heat pumps have been recognised as an important part of the solution. This is why the government is encouraging the installation of heat pumps as the low carbon alternative to gas, oil and LGP heating.
