Conventional radiators are the most common feature used to heat Britain’s homes. But, underfloor heating is increasing in popularity. It is more eco friendly and energy saving, and offers a wide range of other benefits. More and more people are opting to switch to underfloor heating, and we can see the reasons why.
Lower energy use
One of the best pro’s of underfloor heating is the lower energy bills. It is far more efficient than conventional radiators, and so you are saving the environment whilst also saving your pennies on heating bills. Underfloor heating distributes heat evenly around the room, turning a floor into a radiant heater. This means the heating doesn’t have to be on for long, before the whole room reaches the desired temperature.
More space in your rooms
One of the more aesthetic benefits of underfloor heating is that you can save yourself from needing radiators. This gives you more wall space and means you can avoid the need for less than attractive radiators.
Radiators are not the most practical things, usually they offer the bare minimum when it comes to heating your home. That does not mean they aren’t a viable option, it just means that there is more modern technology on offer, which can provide you with a better experience.
In your living room, for example, you will probably have the radiator near your sofa. When the heating is turned on you may find it gets quite uncomfortably warm on your sofa, very quickly. An underfloor heating solution, on the other hand, will heat your whole living room evenly.
Little to no maintenance
Underfloor heaters require little to no maintenance, once the installation is complete you do not need to do much further in the way of upkeep. For electric underfloor heating, servicing is a rare occurrence. Water systems will need the odd check up, to ensure they are running property, but in comparison to boiler servicing this expense is minimal.
Better heating control
Conventional radiators are controlled by a single thermostat, so you have to set the temperature the same for every room in the house. Underfloor heating, however, can be set to a mh teh eatore specific temperature. You can control the heat in each individual room, ensuring you are not wasting energy and money heating empty rooms.
