How to Buy Underfloor Heating for Your Hallway

Halls are often overlooked when it comes to design and heating solutions. For most people, it’s simply a transition area from one room to another, or from the front door to the interior of your home. However, we spend a lot more time in the hallway than we imagine – so keeping this space comfortable is important. In this guide we’ll explore how an underfloor heating system can bring radiant warmth to the communal spaces in your home. You’ll discover:

  • Why UFH is perfect for bringing warmth to your entrance way  
  • The best floor heating systems for corridors 
  • Maximising the efficiency of floor heating in your home

Will UFH enhance the comfort of my corridors?

Many hallways utilise inefficient heating systems that do not provide enough warmth for the space and letting your hallway remain underheated can make the other rooms in your home less comfortable, as the heat in the connected rooms is drawn out to warm up the cold halls. So, it’s a great idea to consider a new heating solution for these areas to keep your entire home cosy and comfortable all year round. The low running costs of underfloor heating mean you could enjoy significant savings on your energy bills too. 

Selecting the best heating solution for your hall

Warmup’s electric systems are a great idea for hallway renovation projects. Electric systems offer fast installation times and their low-profile design means they will have little-to-no impact on floor heights.  

Many entrance halls typically feature stone or tiled flooring to provide a contemporary indoor-outdoor interior design theme so for this quote package we’ll choose a system perfect for these floor finishes. The DCM-PRO Heated Decoupling System was designed for hallways and landings with tiled floors as its innovative technology can help protect tiles from potential damage caused by environmental temperature changes that can cause fractures and breaks in the tile and grout. DCM-PRO also offers a flexible installation method with a choice of membranes and you even specify it for low-wattage projects – for instance if your home is powered by solar energy. 

Looking for a heating solution for bigger hall renovation projects or a new hallway as part of your construction project? The VLo Ultra-12 Low-Build System is a popular water floor heating system for these kinds of projects. It is designed for use with floating screeded floors and can be used with both heat pumps and traditional boilers.

How to fill out the project details for your heated hall quote

To complete your hallway floor heating quote, you’ll need to input a few basic details of your project including the heated area size of the room and the floor type. Because corridors are typically longer and slimmer than other rooms, it should be simple to work out the heated area of the space – for this example UFH package, we’ve specified a total size of 8 m² for a hallway floor heating area that is 1 metre wide and 8 metres long.

Maximising the energy-efficiency of underfloor heating

All floor heating systems should be installed with good quality insulation to enhance the performance of the heating technology. Your new system should also be controlled with a thermostat for increased energy-efficiency and enhanced savings on your bills. The 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat is our latest innovation in UFH control. Its premium design features a Smartphone touchscreen and can facilitate automatic heating while helping to save you up to £400 a year on your bills.
