If you’re planning a new build, extension or major refurbishment on your property it may be the perfect time to seriously consider underfloor heating (UFH) as an efficient way to heat your home. UFH is not a new concept, it’s been around since the Roman times. In Scandinavia, 80% of homes are already heated by UFH and the UK market is catching up fast. It’s no surprise that UFH is growing in popularity. It’s relatively cheap to install, economical to run and with little maintenance required. It also frees up wall space, normally dedicated to radiators, and can now be installed under virtually any type of floor. It’s generally considered to be a more eco-friendly option than radiators too, because of the way it heats the space. EFFICIENT EVEN HEAT DISTRIBUTION The radiant form of UFH with even heat distribution is far more comfortable and efficient than the convected heat provided by radiators, which draws cold air across the floor, heating it and then convecting it up towards the ceiling.
