Underfloor heating from Nu-Heat. The UK's largest supplier of warm water underfloor heating systems
Warm water underfloor heating is a highly effective and efficient method of heating. It's suitable for a wide range of projects, whether a new build, renovation or single area.
The benefits of underfloor heating (UFH)
Warm water UFH (also known as ‘wet underfloor heating’) is unlike any other heating system.
- Highly efficient
Warm water UFH uses far lower flow temperatures than a traditional radiator system. Because it covers a much larger surface area it is still able to heat the room effectively. For this reason, underfloor heating is around 25% more efficient than a radiator system.
- Perfectly suited to open plan living
UFH is an ‘invisible’ heating system as the tube is hidden beneath the floor. This frees up wall space, ideal for open plan living and rooms such as kitchens where space is at a premium.
UFH has no exposed hot or sharp edges – a safe option for young children and the elderly. It’s great for allergy sufferers as it provides warmth free from draughts and dust movement that can aggravate conditions.
- Luxuriously comfortable
With UFH, the heat gently emits upwards from the floor. This gives the luxurious feel of warm feet and a cool head without any cold spots common with radiators. UFH also warms any usually cold floor coverings, such as tiles or engineered wood.

Choosing the right underfloor heating system
Warm water UFH is suitable for virtually all properties and can be paired with a wide range of floor coverings. We’ve listed a few of our most popular solutions by project type:
For a new build
UFH is cost-effective and simple to install as part of a new build project, fitting neatly into the build schedule. Screed UFH is the most common system choice in this scenario. The heating tube is clipped through a polythene slip layer into standard insulation before the screed is poured.
or a renovation
There’s no need to spend time or money digging up floors with Nu‑Heat’s LoPro™ range of retrofit UFH. Both systems are simply laid directly on top of an existing floor and offer the lowest height build‑ups and the highest heat outputs on the market.
The LoPro™ solutions make UFH a realistic heating replacement for renovation projects. LoPro™Max is available as a single room kit which is great for kitchens or conservatories.
For joisted floors
Nu‑Heat offers a range of UFH solutions for projects where there are joisted floors. Simply feed the heating tube through pre-notched or drilled joists and then push into the patented ClippaPlate™ fixing system to hold it securely in place and flush with the floor for effective heat transfer.
For single areas
If you are looking to install UFH in one single area, such as a kitchen, then choose one of Nu‑Heat’s OneZone™ systems.
The complete kits are available on our online webstore and include everything to install a high quality warm water UFH system in a single space.
Three of our most popular systems are available as OneZone™:
- Screed for new build extensions
- Floating for first floors or renovations that can tolerate some height build-up
- LoPro™Max for a wide range of renovation projects where height build-up and heat output are important considerations
