    What is underfloor heating?

    To begin with, underfloor heating is a way of heating your home by using flexible and strong tubing which is placed under your floor. It has several benefits and advantages over using radiators. It is both affordable in price and quite efficient. If you are looking for underfloor Heating in Rhoose, then you’ve come to the right place. A lot of various types are available for you to choose from. Different factors can affect your choice and the type of underfloor heating system you want to go with. These might include: your current heating system, energy source and your project type.

    How does underfloor heating work?

    To put it simply, an underfloor heating system works by turning your floor into a huge and invisible heating system. Your floor will be emitting heat in a very efficient manner. Either cables or heating tubes will be installed beneath your floor. These will heat up the room from the ground and all the way up. Cables are used for electric underfloor heating systems, while flexible tubing is used for warm water underfloor heating systems. An underfloor heating system can use lower water temperatures than radiators due to the fact that it covers a large surface area. This can assist in improving efficiency. It also has the benefit of heating the entire room since there are no cold spots whatsoever.

    What are the advantages of an underfloor heating system?

    Your floor will be warm and heated

    With underfloor heating, heat will be emitted gently from underneath your floor upwards, making your cold floor warm to the touch. An underfloor heating system emits even warmth and makes your home cosier.


    An underfloor heating system is quite flexible. It can be installed in any type of property such as new builds, renovations or extensions. They can be fitted in one room, multiple rooms or upstairs.

    Discreet & Space saving

    Underfloor heating systems are ‘invisible’ due to the fact that the tube is well hidden under the floor. Additionally, you will have more space due to not having to install radiators. Underfloor heating is perfect for small homes and open plan living.

    More efficient

    An underfloor heating system operates by using lower flow temperatures than radiators. It covers a large area and can heat very effectively. Underfloor heating is 25% more efficient than a radiator system. This figure can reach 40% if your system is connected with a pump.

    Environmentally friendly

    Underfloor heating uses less energy, as a low temperature heating system, than radiators. As a result, you will be able to reduce your carbon footprint.

    Healthy & safe

    Underfloor heating is safe because this kind of heating system has no sharp or exposed edges. This can make it safe for children and the elderly. It is also ideal for people who suffer from allergy as it can provide heat without draughts or dust movements.

    Design of underfloor heating

    For an underfloor heating system to work as expected, design is crucial. Your system will be designed to suit your home and heating requirements. To ensure that your system is working as it should, we take into account room-by-room heat loss and optimised running efficiency as well. Your system should achieve a perfect temperature that is neither too cold nor too hot. To achieve ultimate comfort, each room can be set to a different temperature. We use materials according to what is required in order to reduce waste. Our aim is to provide you with a system that can achieve efficiency by using the minimal amount of energy.
