Experience The Luxury Of Underfloor Heating

Underfloor Heating Systems Dublin was once reserved for homes that wanted to keep up with the latest trends, but with the modern demands for energy efficiency it is becoming more common in homes around the country.

In any standard heating system, the warmth in a room is usually produced from a radiator located against a wall. As the name suggests, the heat radiates out from this location, eventually spreading to the whole room.

Early underfloor heating was constructed from a network of pipes buried under concrete. The benefit is clear – the pipes cover a large proportion of the room, and the heat generated covers the entire room rather than radiating from a single wall. However, these systems often underperformed due to the depth that the pipes were buried at.

Newer technologies in flooring provide better thermal conductivity and are significantly thinner than before – sometimes over 60% thinner. This means that the heat can be distributed more quickly and evenly, making underfloor a much more attractive proposition.

Modern underfloor heating systems can still use pipework, but some systems can produce heat from electric coils instead. The net result is the same.

What is the Best Floor for Underfloor Heating?

The best type of floor for underfloor heating is generally considered to be polished screed flooring, tiles or stone (or a similar material) with floorings such as timber or carpet absorbing too much heat for them to be truly effective. However, it is possible to use timber if the timber has been specifically manufactured for underfloor heating – the thinner the boards, the better. Most types of laminate flooring work well with underfloor heating.

Carpet can also be used, but keep in mind that the thicker the carpet is, the less heat it will be able to transfer to your room.

Installing an underfloor heating system will require some significant work being performed in your rooms, as the room will need to be emptied to allow access to the whole floor area. However, the benefits and convenience of underfloor heating can certainly make this a worthwhile endeavour.

Underfloor heating provides more even temperatures in all areas of a room and allows you to position furniture and other items as you choose – wall space is no longer occupied by radiators.
