Benefits of Water Underfloor Heating
Water underfloor heating provides a number of advantages over other types of heating system. Firstly, it provides a high level of comfort, offering a consistent heat level across a room and is less prone to cold spots which might be experienced with other heating emitter types. It also benefits from lower convection rates than for example a traditional radiator, and therefore less draughts.
With the correct levels of insulation, underfloor heating has the potential to provide a heating solution which saves end users more energy and money, longer term.
New Builds or Property Renovations
Underfloor heating is ideal for new builds but it is also becoming more popular for renovations thanks to new product innovations in this area. While it is increasingly recognised as a ‘desirable’ among homeowners, helping developers to market large-scale property developments, it is also increasingly being viewed as attractive in commercial applications such as hotels, spas, offices and schools. Here, there is clearly a real opportunity for building added value into a property portfolio or high-spec development.

A Cleaner Heating Solution - Ideal for Medical Facilities
Perhaps less known is the fact that underfloor heating has been linked to health benefits, with the radiant energy generated by underfloor heating resulting in less dust, and therefore dust mites, being circulated than with traditional radiators. This offers real potential for medical applications and developments.
No Need for Screed!
Existing commercial and residential housing stock can benefit from underfloor heating too. The traditional method of installing underfloor heating pipes onto an insulation base and covering with screed can be used however, this can become a disruptive and time consuming installation.
Other systems exist within the market that can avoid this such as overlay systems, which can be laid directly onto existing floors in a much quicker time-frame and do not require a screed finish.
