Underfloor heating is considered the best modern way to heat your home, not only is it less obtrusive and more energy efficient than ugly radiators but it’s also good for your health!
Using warm water pipes that are entirely concealed in the floor of the property gently radiating heat evenly throughout the room, ensuring that there are no cold spots or excessively hot spots. Gas Underfloor heating gives you the freedom to re-position furniture as you please without worrying about where the hot radiators are positioned.
Types of Underfloor Heating
There are generally two types of underfloor heating systems, one being electric, known as the “dry” system and the other is water filled which is labelled the “wet” system.
WarmFloors specialises in both warm water(wet) underfloor heating systems and electric underfloor heating. Wet systems are typically more cost effective than the electric systems to run, but not everyone is on the gas network and electric underfloor heating is cheaper to run than oil and LPG.
Water Underfloor Heating
Installation of wet underfloor heating systems in combination with liquid screed is a quick and cost effective way to get your underfloor heating system up and running and is equally as cost effective for larger commercial properties.
Since 2004 WarmFloors has been supply and installing underfloor heating systems. Over the years we have tried and tested most methods of installation and have the experience to flawlessly plan, design and fit any size or type of installation.
When talking about water systems the most common approach is to bury the heating pipes into the floor of the property using a coating such as a liquid screed. The heating pipes then radiate natural heat evenly throughout the room, ensuring that there are no cold spots or excessively hot spots.
Warm water underfloor heating systems can also be installed to first floors and second floors. These floors are normally suspended timber which makes the installation a little more time consuming, but this doesn’t stop us! We either clip direct from underneath, or the preferred option is to baton the existing floor and lay the pipes in-between and cover over with a new tongue and groove chipboard. Making sure the joists below are well insulated and this works well.
Underfloor heating gives you the freedom to re-position furniture as you please without worrying about radiator positions, it’s healthy for asthmatics and best of all its cheaper to run than radiators.
