Benefits of Underfloor Heating
- Radiant Heating vs Traditional Heating
Underfloor heating is often referred to as radiant heating. To understand the concept, imagine you are outdoors in Twickenham and Richmond on a cold clear afternoon. The ground is frozen beneath, and when the sun comes out, it hits your face, warming you instantly- despite the cool temperature around.
Why? Because the sun’s radiant heat warms things around (like you) before it does the air. You can stay warm while the air is cool and fresh. This is the same principle behind underfloor heating.
- Radiant Heating: Centuries of proven efficiency
This heating method was first practiced by the early Romans over 2000 years ago. It focused on gently heating a large floor surface with the purpose of warming the objects around. With time and advancement in technology, the process has been mastered. Heating a large surface area at moderate temperatures from 21 – 25⁰C/70 -77⁰C produces comfortable and efficient heating for your Twickenham and Richmond home.
- Healthier Environment
Underfloor heating minimises the risk of asthma and allergy triggers due to the fact it reduces air circulation of allergens.
- Cost effective
You can easily regulate the temperature to suit your particular requirements. It also uses little heat to warm a large surface area, making it energy-efficient.
- Warm Floors
The feet are vulnerable to cold, and having warm floors makes it a lot more comfortable. What’s more, you can place practical floor-covering over them without worrying about feeling cold.
- Space Saving
Traditional heating units, such as bulky radiators, tend to take up a fair amount of space. With underfloor heating, you have more space to use in your room.
