Underfloor Heating can Keep You and Your Family Warm

If you are considering giving your home a revamp and want to add a touch of luxury to one or more of your rooms, why not opt for an underfloor heating system? There are a number of reasons to consider underfloor heating, all of which could benefit you enormously. Underfloor heating can work in almost any home, regardless of its size or shape, so there’s no need to worry about missing out on great home warmth.

Underfloor Heating can Keep You and Your Family Warm

Underfloor heating gives you a more streamlined and stylish looking room, which is great for space saving in smaller rooms or if you want to create a sleek and modern look for your home. Clunky radiators do not always work well in rooms, they’re difficult to disguise and often require a different paint to the one used on your wall, creating extra expense and upkeep. Alongside this, radiators may be a bad choice for you and your family’s health.

Keeping your home warm is important to prevent colds and the flu, especially if you have young children, elderly relatives or even feel the cold greatly yourself. The UK has one of the highest rates of dust mite allergies around the world, contributing to large number of asthma related problems in both adults and children. Electric underfloor heating helps to destroy and keep away dust mites as it uses dry heat and helps to take the moisture out of a room, unlike radiators which do not distribute an even heat source. Other health benefits of underfloor heating include minimising slipping hazards, as spills dry much quicker and helping to relieve arthritis, due to the resonating upward heat of underfloor heating.

How does underfloor heating work? A layer of insulation is fitted to your floor to ensure upwards heat travel and then electric heating sheets or flexible cables are placed on top. Electric heating systems are much easier to fit that a wet system due to the lack of piping, as well as their size and durability. Although there are many things you can do yourself to prepare for underfloor heating, you will still require a qualified electrician to connect your system up to the mains.
