Benefits of underfloor heating
Compared to conventional wall mounted radiators, under floor heating systems, can be more efficient to heat an area whether it is one room or an entire home or office building. Since underfloor heating uses radiant heat which is evenly dispersed, it will produce a comfortable, warm temperature at a lower surface temperature than that provided by conventional heating systems which can result in better efficiency and lower running costs. The floor of the room heated by the underfloor heating system will produce an even heat spread across the floor, ensuring the same temperature no matter where you are in the room.
Which underfloor heating system suits best?
The principals of radiant heating remain the same whether using electric or water systems. The biggest difference is the construction of the subfloor on which the heating system is installed.
When floor height is limited, an electric system is a preferred option since the cables are only between 3.5mm and 7mm thick, whereas water systems are especially suited for new floor constructions where a (new) concrete subfloor is required. The heating pipes of the system are laid within the cement screed on which the floor covering is placed.

Underfloor Heating comes in 2 different types, electric & water. Both systems, however, perform the same, giving you an energy efficient and effective heating system.
