Underfloor heating is the most luxurious form of heating as it’s radiant heating right under your feet and evenly distributed throughout the room, from wall to wall. Warm water underfloor heating, from a hydronic heat pump or boiler, is generally cheaper to run than other forms of heating.

Underfloor heating does particularly well in rooms with high ceilings, as the radiant effect of the heat from the floor is effective up to a height of about two metres. With underfloor heating, you don’t get that hot air pooling at the top of a room, like you can with other forms of heating and because the heat source is at your feet, heating you from the toes up, the perceived comfort level is greater. As a result, the room can be comfortable at a lower temperature and your heating costs lower. However, the system is one that should be used for long periods of time, and not infrequent intervals to really be cost effective.

Underfloor heating is most commonly installed in new builds but can be retrofitted. Discuss your options today with Ultra Gas & Plumbing.
