Underfloor Heating Explained
Underfloor heating comes in two different forms:
- Electric “Dry” underfloor heating
- Warm Water or “Wet” underfloor heating
Both of them essentially do the same thing: they warm the floor and heat the room evenly. Wet and dry underfloor systems can operate as the primary heat source, as long as the room is sufficiently insulated. It is a wholly viable and energy efficient alternative to replacing inefficient old radiator systems.
Both systems can operate as the primary heat source as long as the room is sufficiently insulated, and are a viable alternative to replacing inefficient radiator systems. Underfloor heating can also be much cheaper to run then radiators, and far more more environmentally friendly. Underfloor heating also offer heath benefits as dust distribution is reduced to almost zero. By removing all moisture from carpets, dust mites simply cannot live. This gives underfloor heating a huge advantage over radiators to asthma sufferers, as the air quality is much cleaner.
Let’s look in more detail at the different heating systems, and the variations of each one – to help you decide which one is right for you.
Electric v Water Underfloor Heating
Both electric (dry) and water (wet) underfloor systems can be really great – so give yourself the time to look at both. From large-scale commercial builds to home renovations, check out both of our handy starter guides, to see which suits your needs best:
