Under Floor Heating
UNDER FLOOR HEATING is the most efficient and effective way to heat your property as pipes in the floor gently turn the whole area into a large heat emitter. The more insulated your home is and particularly with open plan rooms it is far more cost effective than traditional radiators which are unsightly and require higher water temperatures. Underfloor heating can easily work with water temperatures at 40C compared with 65C needed for radiators. Under floor heating can be laid on solid concrete floors on top of insulation in screed on the ground floor for new builds and extensions; on aluminium plates between joists for upstairs or retro fitting suspended floors; or on floating low profile boards with grooves which only add 15mm to the height of the existing floor. The more insulated the house the more effective the under floor heating will be so it is important to have a well designed and installed system.
