Benefits of underfloor heating

Warm, heated floor

One of the main benefits of underfloor heating systems is how they feel. As the heat gently emits upwards from the floor, it makes usually cold floors warm to the touch. Another advantage of UFH is that it produces an even warmth, eliminating any cold spots or draughts that are common with radiators.
UFH benefits - Warm Heated floor

Underfloor heating efficiency

Warm water underfloor heating uses far lower flow temperatures than a radiator system, and because it covers a much larger surface area it is still able to heat the room effectively. For this reason, UFH is around 25% more efficient than radiators.
UFH benefits - energy efficient

Hidden heating solution

Underfloor heating systems are ‘invisible’ 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.

Underfloor heating is safe

Underfloor heating has no exposed hot or sharp edges – a safe option for young children and the elderly. UFH is great for allergy sufferers as it provides warmth free from draughts and dust movements that can aggravate conditions.

Having lived with underfloor heating, I can’t see how anyone wouldn’t want to – especially if you have solid flooring.

How long does underfloor heating take to warm up?

Retrofit underfloor heating that sits on top of the floor warms up very quickly, on par with a radiator system. UFH that is set within a screed can take longer to heat initially but is easily programmed to provide the right amount of heat exactly when needed.

Underfloor heating is usually installed by a plumber or a Nu-Heat Registered Installer but some DIYers choose to fit most of the system themselves. The specific installation steps vary depending on the system. Find out how to install UFH.
