The benefits of an underfloor heating installation
Underfloor heating turns your whole floor into a radiator. This makes for a much more pleasant experience as your room will be uniformly warm. As underfloor heating has such a large surface area with which to radiate heat, it doesn’t need to operate at such a high temperature as a radiator. Using your underfloor heating in conjunction with a thermostat allows you to keep the temperature just as you like it. This will often need to be much lower than a traditional radiator requires. Dependent on the system, an underfloor heating installation can use 15-40% less energy due to the lower temperatures it operates at.
Other benefits of an underfloor heating installation include:
• It is an efficient system providing even heat distribution. No cold spots and no loss of heat through poor circulation.
• Frees up your wall space and allows you to place furniture wherever you like!
• Does not circulate dust and allergens as a traditional system would.
• Silent and discreet operation – no more rattling pipes!
• Warm feet – a definite benefit in our opinion.
• Can be installed in almost any room from bathrooms to bedrooms.
• Works evenly in rooms that have non-standard shapes.
Why use an electrician to install underfloor heating
Installing underfloor heating can be a complex task. Whilst there are DIY kits available, you will still require a qualified and registered electrician to connect them correctly and to fulfil Part P building regulations. For most people, the easiest and safest option is to have your electrician perform the full installation. They will have the tools, knowledge and experience to complete your underfloor heating installation to the highest possible standard. Using a qualified and NICEIC registered electrician means they have certain guarantees on their workmanship and will be fully insured. No one likes to consider things going wrong but it is far better to have proper protections in place. Underfloor heating is designed to operate safely in all areas of a home, including bathrooms and kitchens where water is present. It is important that your installer understands the importance of safe installation and does not compromise the integrity of the system with poor workmanship or you could be at risk of either electrical fire or shock.
