What is Underfloor Heating?

Underfloor heating is a form of central heating which achieves indoor climate control for thermal comfort using conduction, radiation and convection. The terms radiant heating is commonly used to describe this approach because radiation is responsible for a significant portion of the resulting thermal comfort but this usage is technically correct only when radiation composes more than 50% of the heat exchange between the floor and the rest of the space.

An underfloor heating system allows you to heat a particular room or space by radiating heat underneath your floorboards. This has become an increasingly popular way of heating homes throughout the UK due to its energy efficiency, ability to deliver comfortable heat and the absence of radiators, which frees up more space for your furniture.

There is nothing worse walking around your house in the winter with cold floorboards. By having underfloor heating installed, this will soon become a distant memory as you can wake up each morning to heated flooring that will keep your feet warm.

How Much Does Underfloor Heating Cost?

A wet underfloor heating system will cost about a third more than a radiant floor heating system, on average. This includes the fact that more insulation is likely to be added below the pipework. If the system is installed at the time of building or renovation, its installation costs will be minimized.

Electric, or ‘dry’ underfloor heating systems generally cost less to install, but is more expensive to run. Dual storage underfloor heaters involve two sets of pipes and extra thick screed, so they can gain most of their running energy from cheaper nighttime tariffs. This is not a cost-effective form of heating.

Will I Need a Professional Underfloor Installer?

For a wet underfloor heating system, unless you’re very handy with DIY, you will probably want a professional underfloor heating installer with experience to do the installation. You can expect to pay more for the installation than you would for new radiators.

Installation should take a couple of days, depending on the floor space, but screed can take up to three weeks to dry.

Will Underfloor Heating Save Energy?

This depends on how well insulated the building is, the efficiency of the boiler, and what kind of heating needs your system will be meeting.

High occupancy commercial buildings are more likely to see efficiency gains from underfloor heating because it is most effective for periods of continual occupancy, and because for larger heating needs the capital costs of an underfloor heating system become relatively smaller.
