If you’re about to install a brand new heating system in your property, you should consider the full range of available options before making an informed choice.
Underfloor heating is definitely something that you should consider, as this provides a number of benefits in comparison with standard radiators and is far superior from an aesthetic perspective.
But how exactly does underfloor heating work, and what advantages can you capitalise on as a home-onwer?
What is Underfloor Heating?
In simple terms, underfloor heating is a form of central heating and cooling which provides indoor climate control using radiated heat.
The warmth produced by radiating heat is typically absorbed by objects and people in a room or space, whereas the convection currents used by radiators tend to heat the air.
In the case of modern underfloor heating systems, either electrical resistance elements or fluid are used to heat homes effectively.
Heating systems that utilise the fluid flowing in pipes are commonly referred to as hydronic systems, and they’re becoming increasingly commonplace in domestic applications.
What are the Benefits of Underfloor Heating?
By using radiant heat to warm the objects in rooms, you’re more likely to feel the benefit of underfloor heating during the colder months of the year.
As this type of system also radiates heat from the floor to the roof, it allows for a more consistent and ambient temperature than conventional heaters and optimises your comfort levels significantly.
By allowing for pleasant warmth at generally lower temperatures, underfloor heating also enables you to keep your home comfortable whilst reducing your energy consumption levels.
This translates into far greater efficiency, cutting your monthly energy bills without forcing your compromise on the comfort and warmth of your home’s interior.
