Can I install underfloor heating without raising the floor?


Absolutely! Our electric heating systems would be the best choice. Our systems have been designed with a revolutionary, very thin heating element (only 1.8mm) to allow you to install the system without raising the floor height.

How efficient is underfloor (radiant) heating?


Underfloor heating systems are very efficient because they distribute the heat uniformly and gently, at a low temperature, from the whole floor surface, concentrating the heat in the lower half of the room. There is neither heat loss, nor wastage of energy and you can heat the rooms you want, exactly when you want.

I am considering different heating systems. Can underfloor heating be used as a whole-house heating system?


Using underfloor heating as a whole-house heating system has several benefits from decreased energy consumption to freeing up living space as radiators aren’t needed. In many cases, underfloor heating can be used as the primary source of heat as long as the rooms have the correct levels of insulation. A heat loss calculation needs to …

What is the difference between heating from radiators and underfloor heating?


Radiators mainly work on the principle of heat convection, not radiation. Air is heated to a high temperature in the range of 65-75ºC and needs to be moved from the radiator to the rest of the room. This is achieved using thermal currents of hot air moving to the ceiling, cooling, and falling to create …

What is radiant floor heating?


The easiest way to understand radiant heat is to understand the feeling of warmth on your body from the sun on a freezing cold day when the air temperature is clearly below freezing with snow and ice on the ground. Out of the sun, however, the feeling of warmth disappears, as the main sensation would …
