Underfloor Heating Installation
Underfloor Heating is an excellent energy-efficient way to heat your home in Scotland, especially with an Air Source Heat Pump installed.
It works by distributing lower-temperature warm water through pipes under the finished floor, controlled by intelligent thermostats.
These thermostats allow you to program different temperature levels in different zones, as well as set different temperatures in individual rooms.
Depending on the needs of the room, you can use a renewable heat source pump, or a conventional boiler to supply the heat.
Traditional Radiators vs Underfloor Heating System
Underfloor heating is more energy-efficient than traditional radiators since heat is dispersed more evenly in a floor than in a radiator, saving money on heating bills. It also prevents draughts.
Assuming a correct installation, you might save up to 25% of the energy used by a radiator, and up to as much as 40% when installed with a heat pump.
In addition to reducing energy bills, underfloor heating is a great option if you have young children.
Radiators heat the air by convection, while underfloor heating releases heat evenly throughout the entire floor.
In contrast to traditional radiators, underfloor heating requires minimal maintenance.
It never dries out the air, and is comfortable underfoot.
This makes it an ideal option for modern energy-efficient homes that use the likes of an air source heat pump.
A downside of underfloor heating is that it is more expensive to install than traditional radiators.
Reduce Exposure To Household Dust Mites...
An under-floor heated room is a room much less likely to develop common household Dust Mites.
These tiny creatures can cause Respiratory Problems, Allergies and Eczema.
They breed in damp areas of a house.
Underfloor heating can help reduce dust mite populations by up to 80%.
Underfloor heating became popular in recent years due to its outstanding benefits. It creates an ideal temperature profile that feels good from floor to ceiling.
Furthermore, it is more environmentally friendly, since you can save up to 6 percent of energy compared to traditional heating methods, depending on the size of the home.
There Are 2 Basic Types Of Underfloor Heating;
Electric & Water-based
While easier to install Electric Underfloor Heating may be more expensive.
It is also important to note that water-based underfloor heating uses pipes instead of wires, meaning a more complicated installation.
Unfortunately, certain properties are not suitable for water-based underfloor heating.
