Underfloor heating consumes less energy than a standard radiator heating setup as it does not have to run at such a high temperature.

Consistent Heat: Cool spots can result with conventional radiators, since the air next to the radiator's surface is warmed initially, before it slowly spreads around the room by convection. In the case of underfloor systems, the heating mats or pipes are laid out across the entire floor to provide a consistent and uniform heat which radiates upwards from floor level right throughout the room.

Costs Less to Run: Underfloor systems are less expensive run as they use less energy for the warmth benefits of a conventional central heating system, which also means they are better for the environment.

Usability: Temperature control and energy use are managed and controlled by an automatic digital thermostat, which can be connected to smart phone, in both water and electric underfloor heating systems. You will benefit from 24-hour control of your heating requirements, and it can even be pre-programmed to suit cooler times of the day or automatically adjust to the different demands of the seasons.

Before commencing any underfloor heating installation it is essential that a thermal heat loss survey is done on your home in Penicuik. An architect or certified heating engineer will conduct the survey to establish any extra levels of insulation needed and the size of heating system you will need.

The design of the underfloor heating system, wet, electric or hybrid, will depend on this survey which ascertains the shape, heating needs and size of the overall installation.

In most installations insulation panels will need to be placed beneath the pipes or mats to reduce thermal heat loss into the sub-floor. Using these insulation materials improves the efficiency of the system by bringing down the warm-up or heating time by essentially "pushing" the heat upwards into your rooms.
