Both electric and water underfloor heating systems are much more energy-efficient than traditional central heating systems. Using floor heating can improve the air quality of your home and keep you warm and cosy all through the winter months whilst providing you with lower energy bills too.
Underfloor heating uses radiant heat which heats objects directly and maintains the natural humidity in a room, whereas radiators tend to make a room dry and stuffy. Traditional radiators also need to be heated to a high temperature, usually between between 65-75°C to heat up a room, whereas floor heating only needs to run at a temperature of 27-29°C to warm up a room – thereby consuming less energy and keeping your energy bills far lower.
You can further increase the efficiency of an underfloor heating system with the installation of Warmup Insulation Boards and by using Smart technology. Using a Smart controller such as Warmup’s 4iE Smart WiFi Thermostat for Underfloor Heating with their connected smartphone-based apps, can optimise your underfloor heating system, providing you with an automatic heating solution that only runs when you need it.
