Once considered a luxury item, underfloor heating systems (or UFH systems) are now commonplace in homes across the country. Advancements in technology now see these systems widely acknowledged as being efficient and great value for money. As well as being energy efficient and the reduction in energy running costs associated with that, underfloor heating systems also have added benefits and practicalities.If you are looking for a practical heating solution that will also add a touch of luxury then electric underfloor heating could be the best choice for you.
Electric underfloor heating systems use heated wire to evenly disperse heat through the tiled floor, this is a more effective way of heating. This means no more cold spots or draughts, and the air movement prevents dust from collecting - making it more hygienic than standard forms of heating. These systems also de-clutter the room by the removing the need of unsightly radiators, leaving a clean contemporary finish that enhances the space of any room.
Underfloor heating systems can be used in any room in your home. We often see them used in wet rooms and bathrooms, particularly those with walk-in-shower systems. Water on the ground in these rooms is easily evaporated due to heat generating under the surface. A lovely heated floor creates a comfortable surface to step onto, creating a cosy atmosphere even on the chilliest of days.
The best part of using underfloor heating is that it removes the need for bulky radiators and declutters the room. This can help to achieve a clean and contemporary finish, whilst still retaining heat and warmth. You can use these systems as a sole heat source or even in combination with a secondary heating system depending on the room size and solution chosen. Plus, with new smart thermostats you can control your heating from your smart device, keeping you in control of your room temperature, energy use, and spend.
