Underfloor heating installation: How does it work?
There are two types of underfloor heating. One uses warm water pumped through underfloor pipes (a ‘wet’ system) while the other uses a network of electric coils under the floor (a ‘dry’ system).
The warmth generated under the floor is radiated into the room, taking advantage of the basic principle that heat rises.
Underfloor heating installation: The pros and cons
Underfloor heating installation has both advantages and disadvantages, and you should consider both before deciding whether to make the switch.
Underfloor heating installation: Is it right for me?
The main advantage of underfloor heating installation is the extra comfort and luxury it adds to your home. It heats whole rooms efficiently and consistently, and is lovely and toasty to walk on.
Unlike radiators it’s completely out of sight, so it’s great for people who favour a clean, minimalist look.
The high initial cost may be off-putting, but since the majority of the costs involved come with installation it’s perfect if you’re having renovation work done anyway.
