Benefits of Installing Underfloor Heating in Homes

By Julia Roger Subscribe to RSS | June 7th 2012 | Views:

Underfloor heating is designed to provide warm feet and cool head kind of real environmental comfort. Underfloor Heating requires only low temperature warm water and is ideally used in conjunction with modern condensing boilers and heat pumps.

Many individuals believe that under floor heating is a new idea but in fact it has been around for over 2000 years. As the people of Rome moved north, they realised the growing need to provide winter warmth inside both public and private buildings. Fortunately, a fully working system was already available in the form of the ‘Hypocaust’. This system allowed hot air to flow beneath a building’s floors, which were raised up on brick columns.

Obviously, this technology has come a long way since then, but the basic idea remains the same. Underfloor heating system can now be installed in both concrete and timber suspended floors as well as most other floor constructions.

There are many benefits to choosing underfloor heating as opposed to traditional heating methods:

Underfloor heating permits freedom for interior design. You can furnish as you like.

It is possible to use different heat sources for underfloor heating - the water in the pipes can be heated by using oil burners, gas burners, solar energy, electricity etc.

Installation for underfloor heating is fast and simple.

Pricing for underfloor heating systems may be very similar to a radiator system.

Energy saving from 15-40% can be achieved with radiant underfloor heating.

There is very little noise created by underfloor heating.

Cleaning of the floors is easier and wet floors dry very quickly with the underfloor heating. It helps to reduce house dust mites.

It turns almost any type of floor into a large and gentle radiator.

The real proof of the efficiency of this kind of heating can be seen in the way that many new home-builds are opting for underfloor heating as opposed to traditional radiators as standard, since they not only improve the aesthetics of the property but are promptly becoming a standard feature in modern, energy-efficient homes.
