Is Warm Water Underfloor Heating Cheaper to Run Than Conventional Radiators?

A correctly installed Underfloor Heating system will be more efficient than conventional radiators because underfloor heating runs at a much lower temperature while producing the same heat output.

Underfloor heating typically runs at between 45°c and 55°c, whereas radiators usually require 75°c to optimally heat a room. Underfloor Heating also uses 15% to 20% less energy, which makes it more efficient and ends up being cheaper to run.


The other thing to consider when comparing Underfloor Heating to Radiators is how heat is distributed. Underfloor Heating has a greater surface area meaning the heat is evenly distributed across the room, which is a much more efficient way to heat a room in the most comfortable way possible.
