Both electric and wet underfloor systems provide consistent and efficient heating from the floor upward. They run at lower temperatures than conventional radiators and so don't need so much energy. Typically a gas fired central heating radiator will operate at temperatures of around 65 and 75 degrees C, whereas underfloor heating needs only a temperature of around 25-35°C to successfully warm a similarly sized room.

Consistent and Uniform Heat: A hot water radiator warms the air directly next to its surfaces and uses convection to heat the whole room, frequently producing cold areas. The air in a room radiates upwards from all floor areas simultaneously, and is a consistent and uniform heat from floor level heating pipes or mats in an underfloor heating system.

Cheaper Running Costs: Underfloor systems are significantly cheaper run since they use reduced amounts of energy for the warmth benefits of a conventional heating system, which also means they are more environmentally friendly.

Low Maintenance: With virtually no maintenance demands, electrical underfloor heating systems are usually trouble free and should provide several years of good service. To keep a water underfloor heating system working at optimum performance levels only occasional checks are required, in contrast to a radiator system which needs bleeding and flushing. Operating warm water underfloor heating at lower temperatures also places far less load on gas boilers and other methods of heating (ground/air source heat pumps) giving them a longer service life and making them generally more reliable.

Ideal For Any Room: Radiators take up a surprising amount of "dead" space in a room, around ten percent on average, which can be freed up by installing underfloor heating. It matters not if you've got a carpeted lounge, a tiled bathroom or a laminate kitchen floor; there are variations of underfloor heating system to suit your choice of floor covering. It's also possible to install underfloor heating in outdoor areas of your property in Wincanton such as garages, patios or summerhouses.

Improved Air Quality: An underfloor heating system generates radiant heat from floor level, which minimises convectional air currents caused by halogen heaters or regular hot water radiators. This reduces the amount of dust particles and pollen circulating around the room, establishing a healthier and better environment.
