Underfloor Heating provides a modern heating solution that is vastly more energy-efficient than traditional central-heating systems. Running at lower temperatures whilst still achieving an ideal level of warmth in a room, floor heaters are cheaper to run, reducing energy consumption and promote greater heat dispersion throughout a room. They also eradicate the need for bulky radiators, meaning you will have greater freedom to design the space without making any compromises.
Thinking of purchasing underfloor heating for your home? Which one to choose from electrical or hot water? Underfloor heating is available in two different types and both applications can be used in almost any floor type. It can either be a ‘wet’ system pumping water through pipes under the floor or a ‘dry’ system generating heat through electric coils placed under the floor. Your choice of underfloor heating is down to the type of installation. Electric Underfloor Heating is better suited for certain projects whereas Hot Water Underfloor Heating for others.
The main advantage of underfloor heating is that it’s hidden away due to the installation being under your floor, you also gain instant wall space that your radiators would usually take up.
Underfloor heating is also more cost effective and economical to run in comparison to radiators within your home, whereas the underfloor heating system distributes heat more evenly as the water that runs through the pipes on a wet system doesn’t need to get as hot. This allows your boiler to run more efficiently, therefore being cost effective - another reason to purchase underfloor heating for your home!
Which Underfloor Heating System is right for my project?
Underfloor Heaters are easy to install and suitable for both renovation projects and new-build installations too. They are available in either ‘Wet’ or ‘Dry’ solutions; either an Electric Underfloor Heating System or a Hot Water Underfloor Heating System. The most suitable system for your needs depends on a variety of factors including floor build-up requirements, floor finish, room-type and heating source. Trading Depot stocks a wide range of underfloor heating solutions for your project.
Hot Water Underfloor Heating
Hot Water Underfloor Heating Systems use warm water pumped from the heating source through underfloor heating pipes to gently heat the room. Water systems use cooler water temperatures than central-heating due to its radiant heat properties, offering a much more cost-effective heating solution. It is recommended to install these systems in new-build projects rather than retro-fitting due to the depth required for the system beneath the floor. Polypipe Underfloor Heating have a system for both New Build and Retro Fitting Underfloor Heating
Electric Underfloor Heating
Electric systems use heating wires connected to an electrical source to gently conduct heat through the system. These systems offer rapid, hassle-free installation and have a lower profile compared to water systems, making them much more suitable for renovation projects.
