Underfloor heating systems are a highly effective and efficient method of heating. It is suitable for a wide range of projects, whether a new build, renovation or single area.
In a ‘wet’ or warm water underfloor heating system, pipework is laid in or under the floor. The pipework will be laid in the floor if the floor is solid (screed or concrete) and on grooved insulation panels if the floor is suspended timber.
As warm water is passed through the pipework, heat percolates into the floor and as a result the floor heats the room. In effect, the floor has become a gigantic radiator. This provides more even heat distribution than conventional heating methods such as radiators, meaning there is not risk of overheating or energy wastage.
