UNDERFLOOR HEATING COSTS
With the 2 types of systems available, the initial cost of getting the heating system depends on which one you are choosing.
The wet system is embedded in the structural sub-floor and electric system is fitted beneath flooring. The type of project (new build vs renovation) usually determines which type of system to get, but individual preferences, the room the system is being installed to and whether it is used as a primary or secondary heat source should also be taken into account when choosing a system.
The better the insulation, the better the heating system will perform for you. Underfloor heating running costs are dependent on the type of heater, room size, insulation, desired room temperature and the amount of time and days of the year the system is on.
