Both warm water and electric installations provide consistent and efficient heating from floor to ceiling. They operate at lower temperatures than standard radiators and so don't need so much energy. In normal circumstances a correctly designed and sized underfloor heating system runs at around twenty five and thirty five degrees Celcius, whereby a gas fired central heating radiator requires an effective temperature of around sixty five and seventy five degrees Celcius to warm a same sized room.

Consistent Heat: A hot water radiator heats up the air directly next to its surface and relies on convection to heat the whole room, frequently creating cold spots. 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 setup.

Costs Less to Run: These systems are less costly to run and are more environmentally friendly, as they've got a lower temperature requirement to deliver the same warming benefits.

Convenience of Use: Energy use and temperature are managed and controlled by a digital thermostat, which can be linked into your smart phone, in both electric and wet underfloor installations. This can be pre-programmed in line with your circumstances at various times of day or year, giving you total control of your heating system.

Low Maintenance: Electrical underfloor systems require virtually no maintenance and can provide years of hassle free use. Unlike radiators, water underfloor heating shouldn't require bleeding or flushing and only requires occasional inspections to make certain that it's working to its optimum performance. The reduced operating temperatures required also puts less demand on gas boilers and other heating methods (ground/air source heat pumps etc), hence meaning that they are more reliable and longer lasting.

Ideal For Any Room: Hot water radiators take up a surprising amount of "dead" space in a room, about 10% on average, which can be made available by installing underfloor heating. It matters not if you have a tiled bathroom, a carpeted lounge or a wooden kitchen floor; there are variations of underfloor heating system to suit your circumstances. It is even possible to install underfloor heating in exterior areas of your property in Lochgelly such as garages, patios or summer houses.

Air Quality: With gentle warmth rising from the floor upwards, underfloor heating creates what is called, radiant heat, which reduces the amount of convectional air currents around a room. This produces a better environment by decreasing the levels of dust particles and pollen which circulate around your home.

The heating mats are supplied in rolls which will be laid out onto the sub-floor or insulating material, and then get them connected to a suitable electricity mains supply by a competent electrician.

Warm water underfloor heating, also known as wet floor or hydronic systems use hot water to warm up your property.

Water Underfloor Heating Lochgelly (KY5)

The thickness of the floor is significantly increased as water based systems need to be installed into a thermal layer of screeding. In new build homes in Lochgelly, this added height can be allowed for in the design phase, but for older properties there are slimmer pipe solutions which keep the extra thickness to a bare minimum. As a technique for "whole home" heating, these wet systems are becoming increasingly popular. This is largely due to their higher efficiency, lower operating costs and increased thermal effect.


A mixture of water and electric underfloor heating techniques can be used in the creation of a hybrid system. Warm water systems are installed on ground floors and cellars which have higher heating requirements, while upstairs rooms will use electric underfloor heating. The efficiency of a whole property installation can be precisely adapted to suit any home with a hybrid system.


If you are looking at installing an underfloor heating system to any area of your home in Lochgelly, it is crucial that you do a thermal heat loss survey. An architect or accredited heating engineer will conduct the survey to ascertain any extra levels of insulation needed and what size of heating system that you will need. Areas like uninsulated rooms or conservatories with a higher potential for heat loss will need a greater wattage system than those of a living room or small bedroom/office space. The design of the underfloor heating system, water fed, hybrid or electric, will depend on this on-site survey which pinpoints the heating requirements, layout and dimensions of the full installation.

In most underfloor installations it will be required to position insulating boards beneath the mats or pipes to lessen thermal loss into the sub-floor. Using this insulation material improves system efficiency by reducing the warm-up or heating time by essentially "pushing" the generated heat upwards into the rooms.

There are DIY options for putting in underfloor heating, however it's required that any electrical connections are carried out by a certified electrician who is Part P/NICEIC qualified. As is the case with any electrical and plumbing installations in Lochgelly, the recommended course of action is to use a professional service for the safety and guarantees that are included within the installation process. Despite the high reliability of underfloor heating systems it is important to think about the quantity of warranty and aftercare support, such as servicing, provided by your installation company in Lochgelly.


If you're thinking about installing an underfloor heating system in an existing home in Lochgelly, it's best to look at an electric mat system. Warm water underfloor heating is better integrated into major renovation works or new build homes where the extra height of the flooring required can be factored in during the design phase.

You can save on energy bills and obtain a more easily controllable and consistent level of heating with any of these underfloor systems over their traditional alternatives.

Regardless of your prerequisites; whole property heating, or installation to a single room, underfloor heating is an excellent choice when replacing your existing heating system.
