What To Consider Before Installing Underfloor Heating In Your Home

As the winter weather starts to settle and spring approaches there seems like no better time to think about underfloor heating for your home.

Having this system installed in your home can be disruptive, making spring the optimum time to get the installation process underway ready for the colder months. This will limit the amount of disruption to the heating system you already have in place and you wont have to battle the cold because you’ve had to turn your heating off for the time it takes for the underfloor heating system to become operational.

A few things to think about before installation:

  • Installing your new underfloor heating system over the warmer months gives you time to prepare for winter.
  • During this process you might also like to consider whether or not you want to remove or keep any radiators in the rooms you’re planning to heat with your new underfloor heating This isn’t an essential step, but it is something to consider before installation.

How does underfloor heating work?

Our underfloor heating system circulates heated water throughout your property via a network of concealed pipes under your floorboards that are connected to your boiler. Unlike other traditional heating methods such as radiators and electric heaters, the underfloor heating systems that we put in place are completely hidden, meaning that there is no impact on the aesthetics of your property at all. You wont have to worry about unsightly radiators that stick out against your décor.

We stray away from the out-dated method of electric underfloor heating and instead we choose to install water underfloor heating systems, which not only provide our customers with the best possible product available on the market but also reduces your carbon footprint and works at far lower temperatures, making them the perfect choice for installation in conjunction with other renewable heating systems, such as biomass boilers, ground source or air source heat pumps, and solar powered heating systems. You are then able to connect your water underfloor heating to these systems instead of your boiler if you wish to do so. Water underfloor heating provides you with more choice and freedom to manage how you heat your home.

Here’s what you need to know about the installation process:

This process is a relatively simple one for our team of expert plumbers. However unlike electric underfloor heating, which a person who’s confident in their DIY abilities could successfully install on their own, water underfloor heating systems are on the more technical side of things, so it is best that you let a professional fit this for you.
