A child’s room is a bedroom, a playroom and a sitting room all at once, which means that the room needs to suitable for activities from crawling on the floor to getting a good night’s sleep in the bed at night. Especially important for babies and toddlers, but also for older children, the room temperature needs to be even and pleasant, and not too hot or cold. As the special heating requirements can differ from the rest of the house, underfloor heating is an ideal option for children’s rooms as it allows rooms to have different temperature settings.
Children’s rooms should have a steady warm temperature throughout the day so that the children can go and play and rest comfortably at any time of the day. It is recommended that the room temperature in children’s rooms is 16-20 Celsius. This will prevent potential problems associated with overheating such as dehydration or heat rushes. It will also reduce humidity. As radiators are not needed and as the radiant heat produced reduces air movement and dust circulation, there will be less dust mites circulating in the air which is an important consideration for children suffering from asthma or allergies.
Is it a family friendly heating system?
Underfloor heating is a family-friendly heating system as there are no low level hot surfaces or hard metal edges (which are often associated with radiators) making it a safe heating system to use in children’s bedrooms when the temperature is set to 16-20 Celsius.
Warmup electric underfloor heating is an ideal solution for children’s rooms as it offers a highly energy efficient heating system. This system requires less energy than heating the room by radiators and it provides a steady desired temperature. Controlling the underfloor heating with an energy-monitor thermostat, such as the Warmup 3iE, allows users to know their underfloor heating costs. The 3iE also allows programming different temperatures for different areas in the house, meaning that if you wish to have different temperatures, you can be set by using the thermostat.
For more information on the system and to get advice on heating children’s bedrooms, please contact Warmup.
The atmosphere inside low energy/air tight houses (level 4 or higher) requires careful management, heat control and zoning to avoid overheating. The creation of an internal climate, which encourages over ventilation through opening windows in winter should be avoided as this loses the “low energy” dividend of the house. The ability to manage CSH (Code [...]

The benefits of electric underfloor heating and comfortably warm rooms and feet are now widely known. Lesser known however, is how the advantages of floor heating can be extended even further by way of effective insulation. Extensive research conducted by Warmup on the impact of proper insulation on energy usage has revealed some note-worthy results. [...]

Tipping the scales both in function and aesthetics, the new Warmup 3iE thermostat is the world’s first heating control to feature fully interactive touch-technology and active energy management™ which actively promotes lower consumption levels. This programmable [...]
The proposition for switching to electric underfloor heating snowballs in strength as Scottish Power announces plans to raise their tariffs, hitting gas users nearly twice as much as consumers of electricity. Come August 2011, Scottish Power will increase their rates for gas by 19% whilst their rates for electricity will be affected by a comparatively [...]
