5 Things to Consider when Purchasing Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating is vastly becoming the most popular and desired method of heating in homes and public buildings such as hotels and schools as it offers maximum space abolishing the need for radiators whilst still providing greater levels of comfort.  Here are five things to consider when purchasing your fancy new underfloor heating system:


The fantastic news is that underfloor heating works with virtually any floor covering including carpet, engineered wood, tiles and vinyl meaning that whatever your plan, underfloor heating will be sure to fit in with it! An important factor that needs to be considered is insulation, particularly in older buildings, as this will ensure the underfloor heating works at optimum temperatures without losing any heat.

2 – COST

Underfloor heating is almost guaranteed to save you money overtime.  As long as the systems are correctly installed, they will require no maintenance meaning no additional unwanted expenses so that your underfloor heating system can literally be out of sight and out of mind! Underfloor heating is also run at significantly lower temperatures compared to a radiator but still provides an immediate and consistent warmth which means your heating bill will reduce dramatically overtime. It has been known that the costs to purchase and install the underfloor heating has been recouped in savings within a year!


Underfloor heating can work in conjunction with your current radiator system or as a standalone heat output.  In comparison to a radiator, underfloor heating is cheaper to run and approximately 25% more efficient. Alternatively the current radiators can be removed offering free wall space which is fantastic for living rooms and bedrooms where space counts.


Choosing between a water or electric system is one of the most important decisions when thinking about underfloor heating.  Whilst both systems still work to the same principle, both systems are more suited to different types of building.  Water ushutterstock_198253487nderfloor heating is best suited to a new build property as the floor height may need to be elevated whereas electric is suited to existing builds and is fantastic in bathrooms and
kitchens giving instant heat to tiles. Electric comes in either a mat or cable form.  A mat is best suited to a larger, open space whereas a cable is suited to awkward shaped rooms as it offers greater flexibility.


Anyone who is competent with DIY should find the installation process relatively simple.  A qualified tradesman will be required by law to complete certain parts of the installation in order to follow safety guidelines and validate your guarantee (which is lifetime if choosing a ProWarm system).  We will be with you every step of the way during the installation process. We are also open six days a week to answer any technical queries you may have in regards to installation. We also have a fantastic YouTube channel, packed with installation videos to lend you a helping hand.
