Comfort and Cost Savings with Underfloor Heating

Comfort, Space and Savings

There is a real comfort in being able to walk around your home in your bare feet when there are below zero temperatures outside. But aside from the obvious comfort, what are the other benefits of having underfloor heating? We take a look at all the upsides, from energy saving to design to freeing up space in your home. So, what are the hidden benefits of underfloor heating?

Save Energy and Money

Two very good reasons to install underfloor heating are energy and money savings. Once you’ve got your new heating system up and running, the savings can be substantial. For a start, a good underfloor heating (UFH)  system can work to its optimum at low water temperatures. This in turn improves the efficiency, cutting down on energy use. It’s also an ideal match for renewable energy heat sources. By using less energy, you’ll also cut down on heating running costs.

Design and Decor Freedom

One of great things about underfloor heating is the design freedom it gives you. No radiators means more floor space and room to design fixtures and fittings without having to take into consideration bulky rads or covers. It also means that you don’t have to think about furniture blocking heat sources. It also takes the hassle out of repainting or wallpapering.

Comfortable, Clean and Safe

A quality UFH system heats up quickly and evenly, giving you comfort throughout the home or building. Radiators focus the heat in one area, whereas underfloor heating provides you with a comfortable heat throughout a room. The radiant heat provided provides a balance of warmth in the air, which cuts down on the feeling of dry air, skin and eyes.

On a practical level, UFH is clean. You avoid having to clean radiators and there is no dust gathering in the gaps in the rads or between them and the wall or floor surface. Warming the floor reduces the occurrence of dust mites, so UFH can be of real benefit to people at risk of allergies.

Easy to Install & Low Maintenance

Underfloor heating is suitable for nearly every project type and the Therma-TeQ product portfolio has a system type to suit every floor construction.  Therefore there is no reason why your new build or refurb  couldn’t put UFH as a priority. It’s also a great investment if you ever considering moving or selling on, as underfloor heating is a bonus for buyers.
