As energy efficiency becomes a primary concern for many homeowners, underfloor heating is emerging as a smart, modern alternative to traditional heating methods.
FAS Energy is here to explore why this innovative system could be the perfect solution for your home.
Underfloor heating works by producing radiant heat from the floor which is evenly distributed across the room. This can be achieved using either a ‘wet’ system of water pipes beneath the floor (hydronic), or a ‘dry’ system of electric coils (electric).
Here’s why underfloor heating is a smart choice:
- Energy Efficient: Underfloor heating uses less energy than traditional radiators as it operates at a lower temperature while delivering the same level of warmth. This makes it a cost-effective option in the long run.
- Consistent Warmth: This system heats the entire floor surface uniformly, ensuring a consistent temperature across the room. No more cold spots!
- Space-Saving: With the entire heating system under the floor, you can say goodbye to space-consuming radiators. This gives you more freedom with interior design and furniture placement.
- Quiet and Clean: Underfloor heating systems operate silently and improve air quality by reducing dust circulation, making them an excellent choice for allergy sufferers.
- Luxurious Comfort: There’s nothing quite like the feel of a warm floor underfoot, especially on a cold winter morning. It adds a touch of luxury to your everyday living.
