Underfloor Heating

Under floor heating is the modern heating solution – creating the perfect temperature, giving warmth and comfort from the moment you enter the room.

Make Your Floors Cosy & Warm

Floor heating spreads warmth over the entire floor area using low-temperature radiant heat, rather than the high-temperature “point heating” associated with radiators. Warming a large surface at a low temperature produces the most comfortable form of heating possible by reducing the heat loss from our bodies without overheating the surrounding air.

Instant Cost Efficiency

Since underfloor heating uses a lower temperature than standard radiators or baseboards, heating costs are reduced.

Free Up Wall Space

No radiators mean extra space and design freedom. This will increase the visual asthetic of any room in your home!

Unbeatable Warranties

You’ll have peace of mind as warranties come as standard with all of our amazing heating systems. Call for more details,

Floor Heating vs. Radiators

Heat Distribution

The choice of heating system determines the way heat is distributed. Floor heating produces radiant heat which creates the feeling of warmth. The term radiant heating is used as thermal radiation is responsible for a significant proportion of the “thermal comfort” achieved by this form of heating.

Radiators work by heating the air surrounding them using convection. The air heated by a radiator rises towards the ceiling, and once this warm air has cooled down it falls down to the ground level to be heated by the convection of the radiator again. This creates a flow of hot and cold air, and inevitably hot and cold spots where areas near to the radiators are warmer than the areas elsewhere in the room.

Efficiency and Comfort

The way the heat is distributed impacts the efficiency and comfort of the heating system. Radiant heat warms objects directly and it maintains the natural humidity in a room, whereas convection of warm air tends to reduce humidity, which can make the heated area feel stuffy.
If the whole floor of the room is heated then radiant heat gives a very even spread of heat, whereas convected heating heats one area initially and then takes some time to circulate to reach the required comfort levels. Rising air temperature through convected heating can cause discomfort and overheating, which in turn can reduce oxygen levels, and ultimately cause breathing problems if the air is too warm.
