FAQs

Yes, underfloor heating is up to 25% cheaper to run than radiators with a condensing boiler, and up to 40% cheaper to run with a heat pump.

Yes, we can design systems for renovations and retrofit projects.

No, underfloor heating works with gas, oil and LPG boilers as well as heat pumps.

Our underfloor heating systems can be installed over any existing floor with minimal height build-up and on any floor level. Options range from installation over solid floors to solutions that can be fixed from above or below joists.

Let our design team know.  9 times out of 10 it will be suitable.

Underfloor heating works with most floor coverings. Your system designer will take the floor covering into account when specifying the amount of tube needed in the floor to heat the room effectively.

There are no joints in the underfloor heating tube laid in the floor and the tube we supply has a design life of over 50 years. So, unless the floor is badly damaged, it is extremely unlikely that there will ever be a leak.

All new Irish & UK properties will be suitable for underfloor heating, as they meet strict guidelines on insulation and air tightness. Older properties can have underfloor heating too, thanks to retrofit solutions that offer high heat outputs.

Yes, Warmth offers a full UFH CAD design service including pipework layouts, heat output calculations and in some instances heat loss calculations.  All design work is carried out to the relevant standards and guidelines.

Control is a key element in underfloor heating, as it can make all the difference to the efficiency of the system.  As UFH typically takes a longer time than radiators to heat up and cool down, this needs to be considered on the programming of the system.  Warmth always recommends the use of a 7-day programmable thermostat, to maximise efficiencies and configure the heating to the lifestyle of the homeowner.  There are also other upgrade options, for example smartphone control.
