Why Underfloor Heating?
Underfloor heating first used by the Romans whose homes were built with voids through which air, warmed by an open fire, would pass, thus heating the structure.
Underfloor heating is not a new concept in this country either. In the past electric heating elements were buried within floor screeds. These were heated over night using ‘cheap rate’ electricity. However, this method was expensive to run and uncontrollable and the building would over heat during the day but in the evening, when heat is generally required, no further heat was available.
Utilising today’s modern multi layer pipes, control systems and high efficiency boilers, the underfloor heating systems of today are extremely comfortable and controllable. Radiators are no longer needed so giving more room space. The heat is more evenly distributed and dust is not circulated.
Underfloor heating from the whole floor area of the house gently warms the air above, eliminating cold spots. The warm air convects from the floor surface losing approximately 2 degrees centigrade at 2.0 meters above the floor, which makes the system ideal for all ceiling heights.
