There is no doubt that under floor heating has grown in popularity over the years, with more and more people incorporating it into their homes, particularly with new builds or when homeowners come to update their existing floor. It’s becoming an increasingly popular choice but why should you install it in your home?

1. There’s No Need for Radiators:

Under floor heating replaces the need for radiators meaning you will no longer need to have any installed in your home. This leaves your walls looking flush, and gives all your rooms a bit more space. It also leaves you free of bleeding all those radiators every year!

2. They Are Very Efficient

Under floor heating can be a cheaper alternative to your current heating system and could even save you money on your bills. Radiators are fitted to the walls often close to a window meaning that your radiators heat your room from the ceiling downwards, with some heat escaping out the windows. Under floor heating obviously heats the room from the bottom up meaning heat doesn’t get lost or wasted. They are also very efficient as they operate on a lower temperature and distribute the heat evenly across the room.

3. Its Suitable for All Floors:

You can install under floor heating regardless of your floor type. It will work with wood, laminate, carpet, stone or vinyl. It’s important to know that under floor heating will work best with stone and ceramics as they are better conductors of heat.

These are just a few reasons of why you should install under floor heating into your home and how you can benefit from it.
