Underfloor Heating installation in Birmingham
We undertake hot-water (or wet), and electric (or dry) system installations. Operating in Birmingham and surroundings, no job is too small or too big for our professional team.
Benefits of Underfloor Heating
There are two types of radiant heating, electric and water-based systems. Both provide heating in a room from the floor up for consistent, efficient warmth. Warm water systems run hot water through pipes to create heat, whereas electric underfloor heating heats wiring beneath the floor to generate heat.
Traditional radiators need to be heated to a high temperature (between 65-75 degrees Celsius) in order to heat up a room effectively, whereas floor heating only needs to run at a temperature of 29 degrees Celsius or less, depending on the floor finish, in order to warm the room – thereby consuming less energy, and keeping your energy bills far lower.
Underfloor heating Safety and Comfort
When you have underfloor heating, you no longer need to worry about sharp edges or hot surfaces of radiators when younger family members are in the house. The heating system is safely tucked out of the way and won’t get too hot to the touch.
Radiant heat is also much better for the air quality in a room since it keeps the air fresh and oxygen-rich. On the other hand, high temperatures caused by radiators increase discomfort and reduce oxygen levels. The thermal circulation from air rising to the ceiling and then back gets all the dust going in circles which will not happen with a floor heating system.
Flexibility in room temperature
Thanks to each room having its own dedicated thermostat there’s no obligation for one room to be kept as warm as others.
While many radiators are now fitted with thermostatic valves, these can prove to be unreliable and temperature control will often be more hit and miss rather than an exact science.
With a good UFH control system, it’s easy to save money by keeping temperatures low (or even off) in rooms that are rarely used, while key living areas are kept as warm as liked.
This is also a useful feature for people who like to manage their own temperature in their own spaces – after all, some of us feel the cold more than others.
