Electric underfloor heating is a modern way of heating the home and is popular with homeowners and businesses alike, particularly in the Tourism trade. It acts as a smart alternative to traditional systems. Below are the things we love the most about our electric underfloor heating…
SPACE: Electric underfloor heating is essentially turning the floor into a radiator which eliminate the need for probably the ugliest part of a room freeing up the wall and floor space so that you can place your furniture wherever you like. This will make the area seem a lot larger which is a potential buyers dream.
TEMPERATURES: As electric underfloor heating is installed and spread out beneath the floor, where heat will rise, it means it does not need to be run at high temperatures like a radiator system and will provide an even, comfortable surface temperature. Radiators are normally installed in a corner and would need to be run at high temperatures in order to feel the benefit.
HEALTH: Many people are unaware that electric underfloor heating can provide many health benefits for those with severe allergies. As the system runs at much lower temperatures and is evenly distributed across the room it will circulate cleaner air which reduces the likelihood of allergies caused by dust and will reduce dampness and eliminate cold spots and draughts which will provide relaxed living for all the family.
COSTS: Underfloor heating is viewed by many as an item of luxury but not many people know that it is very affordable. The system itself is run at lower temperatures and uses less energy when compared to a traditional system so is guaranteed to be cheaper to run. Electric underfloor heating is also very easy to install and can be done yourself if you are relatively happy with your DIY skills, whatsmore is that once the system has been successfully wired up by an electrician is that virtually no maintenance will be required!
VERSATILE: Electric underfloor heating will fit perfectly in any type of room. It is available in either a mat form, best for large open spaces, or a cable form which is best for smaller, awkwardly shaped rooms. It can practically be installed under any type of floor covering from carpet, tiles, stone and wood. As it is out of sight and out of mind it won’t clash with any of your décor which gives you the freedom to do whatever you like with your interior design. With plenty of thermostat options available in a variety of colours including the Pro IQ in Summer Orange or a 3IE in Leaf Green means there is something to suit everyone’s taste and budget.
