Underfloor Heating Explained

Underfloor heating comes in two different forms:

  • Electric underfloor heating
  • Water underfloor heating (also called hydronic or wet)

Both system essentially do the same thing: they warm the floor evenly and heat the room. They have the capacity to be the primary heat source as long as the room is sufficiently insulated, and are a viable and energy efficient 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 offers 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 is right for you.
