An Efficient Heating Solution for your Home

Underfloor heating systems provide an energy-efficient, contemporary heating solution for either a single room in your home or your whole house. Floor heaters allow total design freedom when renovating your home and offer lower long-term running costs than traditional heating systems.

Can Floor Heating Replace Radiators in my House?

Floor heating uses radiant heat technology to warm the objects and people in the room from the floor up as opposed to central-heated radiators which focus on heating just the air of a room. This makes underfloor heating a much more efficient heating system than radiators, conserving energy whilst also reducing dust circulation, thereby improving the air quality of your home.

You can absolutely replace the radiators in your home with an underfloor heating system. We recommended carrying out a heat loss calculation on the room you wish to heat to make sure it is suitably insulated and can be primarily heated by a floor heater. Some rooms with smaller floor areas, such as small bathrooms, may require supplemental heating.

What System Type is Best for me?

Underfloor heating is available as either an electric system or a water system, also known as a hydronic system. The ideal heater for your home is dependent on a few key things such as whether you are building a new home or refurbishing your current property, what type of room you are installing the system in, the size of the heated space and the subfloor construction and floor finish.

Electric

Electric floor heaters are perfect if you are renovating your home. They provide a quick and easy installation and their low-profile nature means they won’t impact on floor build-up heights. Electric systems are great if you just want to radiantly heat one room in your home.

Water

If you are building your dream home, consider specifying a hydronic system during the design stage so you take the deeper system build-up into account. However, our Total-16 Water System offers a low-profile heating solution and is recommended for renovation projects.

Hybrid

A hybrid solution is often ideal when considering whole-house heating. This is where different areas are heated by an electric or water systems, using both in unison in your home to achieve a comfortable and efficient combination.

Type of Project

Floor heaters provide a highly flexible heating solution for your home. They can be used to heat just one small room or can be installed throughout an entire house.

Floor Heating in One Room

If you are renovating one room in your home, such as your bathroom, an electric underfloor heater is a great choice to provide a consistent, comfortable heat output.

Heating Multiple Rooms

Electric and water floor heaters can be installed in several different rooms of your home, through a process known as zoned heating. Zoned heating refers to splitting your home’s floor heating systems into distinct ‘zones’ that can be controlled separately to one another for greater comfort and efficiency.

Heating the Whole House

Underfloor heating systems are well suited for use as the primary source of heat in your whole house. A hybrid solution, using a combination of both electric and water systems, often provides an ideal solution for multi-storey homes.

Floor Heating throughout a Multi-Storey House

An underfloor heating system can be installed in every room of your home, with systems suitable for ground floors, basements and upper levels. Before considering radiant floor heating for your home, it is important to carry out a heat loss assessment to make sure each room in your house is well insulated and that a floor heater can be used as a primary heat source.

Ground Floor

If you are installing an underfloor heating system on the ground floor of a new-build home, consider one of our water systems which can be installed directly into the subfloor. The Clypso System is a popular hydronic heater and has been specifically designed for use with floating screeded floors. If you are refurbishing the ground floor of your existing home, one of our low-profile water or electric systems would be recommended such as the StickyMat System which offers rapid installation times and won’t affect the floor build-up.

Upper Levels

If you are installing underfloor heating upstairs, many of our electric systems are ideal to use. If your property has suspended timber flooring, we offer a range of water systems that have been developed to use with such subfloor constructions. Our Econna Joisted Floor System provides a ‘dry’ installation, meaning no heavy screeding is required and its insulation sits between the timber floor joists, allowing a more low-profile heating solution.

Radiant Floor Heating for All Room Types

Floor heaters can be installed in any room in your home. However, rooms differ in size and feature floor coverings that reflect the type of room they are installed in. For example, living rooms are usually bigger areas covered with wood, laminate or carpeted flooring whereas bathrooms are small spaces that typically use ceramic or porcelain tiles as the floor surface.

Benefits of Zoned Floor Heating

Installing multiple floor heaters across your home facilitates a zoned heating function. This is where multiple heaters are split into separate zones controlled by a zone-dedicated thermostat, increasing the efficiency of your home’s heating. For instance, if you have installed floor heating throughout the ground floor of your home, your hallway and living room may be one zone and your kitchen another zone. The ability to zone heating around your lifestyle greatly improves the efficiency of your heating system, preventing unnecessary energy wastage. This level of precision cannot be matched by traditional central heating systems.
