Underfloor heating

What is Underfloor Heating?

A viable alternative to conventional radiator style heating systems is underfloor heating or UFH, the system consists of small bore pipes laid under the floor typically fuelled by a condensing boiler.
Heating homes in this way provides a consistent even heat release from floor level providing comfort underfoot and consistent temperatures throughout the home. As the pipes are hidden there are no radiators and require a lower water temperature to maintain the same temperature level as radiator fed systems.

 

Underfloor Heating and a Condensing Boiler

Because condensing boilers work more efficiently at lower temperatures pairing an underfloor heating system can reduce heating costs by up to 15%, this is due to the fact that a condensing boiler runs in condensing mode at lower temperatures, as underfloor heating usually requires lower temperatures than a conventional system the boiler is allowed to work in it's most efficient mode & thus reduces greenhouse gases & energy costs.

 

Other Benefits

Given the energy saving benefits of underfloor heating there are many other benefits including:

  • No unsightly radiators
  • Quieter as all components are under the floor
  • No radiators to bleed
  • A more even and more consistent temperature
  • Less air movement, so less dust circulating in the air
  • Lower running costs
