5 Reasons Why You Should Install Underfloor Heating

Posted by Uheat Underfloor Heating on 9th Jul 2020

  1. Heat Distribution:

    Traditional Convection Heating Systems cause large amounts of constantly rising and falling air, creating drafts and dust circulation. This heating system is also more uncomfortable compared to Underfloor Heating as the heat is usually coming from the wall, resulting in your feet remaining cold and your upper body hot.

    Underfloor Heating runs at lower temperatures than radiators due to the increased surface area, and it is also more comfortable as the heat is coming from the floor. This keeps your feet warm and your upper body at a comfortable temperature.

  2. No Cold Spots:

    Radiant floor heating distributes even heat where it is needed which means there are no cold spots, it reduces the risk of overheating the body and it is as close as you can possibly get to the ideal heating system for your home.

  3. Efficiency:

    Underfloor Heating gives the same heat output as a radiator system at a lower temperature, while using 15% to 20% less energy. This makes Underfloor Heating more efficient and ultimately ends up being cheaper to run.

  4. Safer for Children and Pets:

    Underfloor Heating is also safer for children and pets due to the fact that there are no exposed heating elements or radiators. Radiators in particular can get very hot, and it is very easy to scald yourself if you're not careful.

    Because the floor surface stays at a comfortable temperature with Underfloor Heating, it makes it ideal for babies trying to find their feet, and it also makes it perfect for pets with aches, pains or joint problems.

  5. Suitable for Nearly All Floor Finishes:

    Because of the vast range of specialised underfloor heating products available means that Uheat have a product suitable for very nearly all floor finishes. From Ceramic Tile, Carpet, Stone, Marble, Porcelain, Laminate, Wood, Vinyl, Engineered Wood, Linoleum, Bamboo, and many more.
