Under Floor heating is the modern choice for heating domestic and commercial properties.
Under floor heating provides the warmth to a room from the floor up, rather than heating the ceiling space first. It also uses lower temperature water because the larger heating surface does not need to emit as much heat per square metre as a radiator. This means the boiler consumes less fuel, which in turn means lower running costs and less environmental damage. It is a healthy option as it does not carry dust as a convecting heating system does.
Low temperature water (typically 50°C) circulates through a series of continuous pipe loops laid under the floor, turning it into one large radiant surface.
Under floor heating is commonplace throughout Europe, providing cost effective, comfortable, unobtrusive heating in millions of properties. It is becoming the heating system of choice in the UK, as the benefits are obvious.
For the same comfort level the room air temperature can be 2°C lower because radiant heat warms the surfaces rather than the air around the surfaces. This means you feel more comfortable. The lower temperature means less fuel is consumed, and the system is more economical, saving more money every year.
The heat distribution within a room is also different, with the distribution profile being far closer to the ideal.
Underfloor heating systems are also completely hidden except for the room thermostat. You have no radiators to decorate or arrange your furniture around, so it gives you design freedom. And it is the perfect solution for heating areas with high ceilings such as galleries and atriums.
Under floor heating used in conjunction with one of our renewable heating systems makes for a perfect partnership.
