Low temperature underfloor heating is embedded in the floor or placed under the floor covering. As such it occupies no wall space and creates no burn hazards, nor is it a hazard for physical injuries due to accidental contact leading to tripping and falling.
Advantages of under floor heating:
- Comfortable even temperature throughout the room
- Invisible and minimal maintenance
- A great way to heat rooms with high ceilings
- No drafts
- Reduced dust (great for families with allergies)
Types of installation includes
In-slab heating is the most popular choice for new homes and extensions where a new slab is being poured.
Installation is very simple and takes place as soon as the reinforcing mesh is down (usually the day before the concrete pour)
Advantages of under floor heating include:
- Low cost – In slab is usually the cheapest type of underfloor heating to install
- Off peak or peak power – Where off peak or smart meters are available the system can be connected to reduced rate night time electricity. When the under floor heating is operated overnight with off-peak power it is possible to keep your home warm 24/7 throughout the winter at a reasonable cost.
- Suitable for most floor coverings – the concrete heats evenly so the system can be used for polished concrete, all kinds of stone and tiles, carpet and even many direct stick wood floors
- Zoned to suit your home – Can be installed in any room and zoned independently, but typical installation is in the main open plan living area (kitchen/family/dining) plus lounge
