Underfloor heating

Underfloor heating has become more popular in UK households because the technology is now cheaper and people are starting to realise the benefits this form of heating presents.

It’s not difficult to have installed, whilst being perfect for those renovating a room or completing a new build.

As you would expect, the system is built under the floor and allows heat to naturally rise in the room.

There are two types of underfloor heating; wet and dry systems. Both can be used in combination with any floor and property and the only thing that could change are the heating requirements.

Underfloor heating can even be installed into oddly shaped rooms, and experts will be able to advise you on everything to provide you with the perfect heating system.

  • Wet underfloor heating

Wet underfloor heating systems allow you to heat water up to temperatures of 65°C. Hooped pipes are installed under the flooring and water is pumped through at a low pressure.

This water is supplied by your central heating system, whilst thermostats and manifolds control water temperature and flow rate. With underfloor heating, condensing boilers are often the most energy efficient.

Thermostats are installed into every room to ensure you can carefully select your home’s temperature at all times.

  • Dry underfloor heating

Electric underfloor heating involves cables being fitted one or two inches below the floor surface. It’s possible to install in any property or floor type, but installation is made easier if combined with a new build or renovation.

Any flooring material is also possible with this form of heating, including vinyl, tile, wooden and laminate.

And as the technology has advanced it has become more efficient and also cheaper to install. Ribbon cables and heating mats provide much greater energy efficiency. Whilst water is heated to a lower temperature than wet systems, it’s still sufficient for your home.

Advantages for Underfloor heating

  • You can get underfloor heating fitted in pretty much any home and under almost any type of flooring
  • Underfloor heating also allows you to have different 'zones' (the area of heating), which you will be able to control independently from each other
  • Electric underfloor heating systems tend to be easier and cheaper to fit
  • Can provide a nice consistent heat throughout a home
  • No more getting cold feet on the bathroom tiles

Disadvantages for Underfloor heating

  • it might mean a lot of upheaval and high costs, especially if it's being fitted retrospectively to an existing room.
  • Water-based underfloor heating generally requires more space for the pipes, and is more complex and costly to install
  • If it's not fitted correctly, there is more of a risk of a fault occurring – which you might not discover until you've laid the flooring on top

Underfloor heating FAQs

Do electric boilers or underfloor systems need servicing?

One of the big benefits of electric boilers is that they do not require annual servicing. There is no legal requirement for a yearly service and safety inspection as there is with gas boilers. Some installation companies do offer servicing packages included as part of the price.
