Underfloor Heating


Warm, heated floor

One of the main benefits of underfloor heating systems is how they feel. As the heat gently emits upwards from the floor, it makes usually cold floors warm to the touch. Another advantage of UFH is that it produces an even warmth, eliminating any cold spots or draughts that are common with radiators.

Underfloor heating efficiency

Warm water underfloor heating uses far lower flow temperatures than a radiator system, and because it covers a much larger surface area it is still able to heat the room effectively. For this reason, UFH is around 25% more efficient than radiators.

Hidden heating solution

Underfloor heating systems are ‘invisible’ as the tube is hidden beneath the floor. This frees up wall space, ideal for open plan living and rooms such as kitchens where space is at a premium.

Underfloor heating is safe

Underfloor heating has no exposed hot or sharp edges – a safe option for young children and the elderly. UFH is great for allergy sufferers as it provides warmth free from draughts and dust movements that can aggravate conditions.
