New to underfloor heating?

A little background

Underfloor heating is an efficient method of distributing heat into a building to provide comfortable space heating. Lower temperatures (around 40°C) can be distributed over a larger area than the higher temperatures (around 70°C) needed for wall mounted radiators.

Underfloor heating is invisible and clutter-free and radiates heat gently from ground level to avoid the convection and heat losses generated by wall mounted radiators.

It is important to understand the difference between traditional screed systems and what are known as dry installed systems. Traditionally underfloor heating involves embedding pipes in screed and dry installed systems avoid the need for screed by using dry panel based products.

We love to work very closely with all our clients, all our systems are guaranteed and we're experts at providing tailored solutions.

Traditional screed systems have a notoriously slow response time and are the main reason that dry installed systems were developed at the end of the 20th century.

In the UK new buildings generally consist of solid ground floors and suspended upper floors. In this case either a screed or dry installed system can be installed on the ground floor and a further dry installed system upstairs. Heating on upper floors can be installed between joists or on a structural deck.
