Whatever installation you opt for, wet or electric, you'll get a consistent level of warming from the floor up which is effective and efficient. Underfloor heating requires less energy to operate than a conventional radiator heating setup as it does not need to run at such high temperatures. Normally a centrally heated radiator will work at temperatures of between sixty five and seventy five degrees Celcius, where underfloor heating needs only a temperature of around 25 to 35 degrees Celcius to effectively heat up a room of the same size.

BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Underfloor Heating Gerrards Cross Buckinghamshire (SL9)

Consistent Heat: Cool areas can be created with conventional hot water radiators, as the air close to the radiator's surface is warmed up first, before it slowly spreads around the room by means of convection. Floor level heating pipes or mats warm the entire floor area in a consistent and uniform way with an underfloor heating system. With consistent and uniform heat distribution, this system blankets every part of the room in a soothing warmth, eliminating the discomfort caused by cold spots.

Cheaper Running Costs: They run at lower temperatures to deliver the equivalent heating benefits of traditional central heating, and hence are better for the environment and less costly to run.

Convenience of Use: You have control of your heating close at hand in both electric and water underfloor heating installations with a digital thermostat which in most cases can be linked with your smart phone. You will benefit from total control of your heating system, and you can even pre-programme your heating to suit colder times of the day or adjust automatically as the seasons change.

Requires Little Maintenance: Electrical underfloor heating systems require pretty much no maintenance and should provide you with years of trouble free use. To keep a water fed underfloor system working efficiently only occasional inspections are needed, compared with a radiator heated system which needs flushing and bleeding. Operating water underfloor heating at lower temperatures also exerts much less pressure on boilers and alternative heating methods (air/ground source heat pumps) meaning that they are more reliable and giving them a longer service life.

Ideal For Any Room: Smaller rooms can seem larger by making available the 10% or so of dead space around radiators which can't be used, by installing underfloor heating. The fact that underfloor heating systems can be used beneath virtually any floor covering makes them perfect for conservatories, bathrooms, lounges and kitchens in Gerrards Cross. You can even opt for a totally waterproof underfloor heating setup for warming up your terrace, summerhouse or garage in Gerrards Cross.

Healthier Air Quality: Underfloor heating produces radiant heat from floor level upwards, which reduces the air currents caused by conventional radiators or electric halogen heaters. A better environment is created as the movement of dust and pollen in the air is reduced.

HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN GERRARDS CROSS

The combination of the two types delivers a unique heating system with the best efficiency.

PLANNING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION

Before commencing any installation it is vital that a thermal heat loss survey is done on your house in Gerrards Cross. An architect or qualified heating engineer will carry out the on-site survey to ascertain if any additional insulation is required and the size of heating system that you will be needing. Areas that are notorious for losing heat, for instance conservatories, will need a greater wattage than those of better insulated, internal living areas. The design of your underfloor heating system, hybrid, electric or water fed, will depend on this survey which pinpoints the dimensions, layout and heating requirements of the overall installation.

To help reduce heat loss in to the sub-floor it may be required to place insulation boards beneath any pipework or heat mats. This insulation has the benefit of increasing efficiency and lowering heat-up times by literally "pushing" the heat up into your room, instead of being dispersed into the floor beneath.
