Once a luxury reserved only for those with an abundance of disposable income to blow on such things, underfloor heating is no longer restricted to the lucky few.
In fact, advances in modern heating technology have made it easier, faster, and cheaper than ever before to install underfloor heating in multiple rooms of the home, which quickly becomes the kind of joy you’ll wonder how you ever got on without.
There are dozens of different types of underfloor heating systems on the market today but in all cases serve the same purpose – a warmer, more welcoming, and surprisingly energy-efficient environment. You can choose an underfloor heating system that wholly replaces the current radiators in the room, or perhaps serves as a second source of heat to ensure more even distribution of heat throughout the room. It’s perfectly possible to fit underfloor heating in any room of the home, though it has to be said that the benefits will always be felt in some rooms more than others.
For example, a switch to underfloor heating in the bathroom is a switch you’ll wish you made years ago. First of all, you can kiss goodbye to the sensation of freezing cold tiles under your feet throughout the winter, which can really take the pleasure out of an otherwise wonderfully relaxing home-spa experience. What’s more, a good heating system will also ensure that the bathroom’s ambient temperature is kept pleasantly warm at all times, rather than the room having to be either freezing cold or hotter than a sauna with no happy medium.
And then, of course comes the enormous joy of having a floor that plays an active role in keeping itself dry. Tiled bathrooms are simply outstanding in every way, but the battle to keep the floor dry does tend to be a pretty constant one. With an underfloor heating system, you’ll find that the vast majority of spots and splashes take care of themselves with no effort needed on your part – dry floors, cleaner floors, and safer floors, guaranteed!
Kitchen Underfloor Heating.
Perhaps the second most appropriate room of the home in which to install underfloor heating is the kitchen. After all, there’s never enough space in the modern kitchen as it is, so why take up a huge chunk of a wall for one or more radiators? Again, underfloor heating allows for a wonderfully pleasant ambient temperature to be maintained at all times, while playing an active role in keeping tiled or stonefloors safe and dry.
Regardless of where you install underfloor heating around the home, one thing you’re guaranteed to notice is a marked reduction in monthly energy bills. Modern underfloor heating systems are designed to not only be incredibly comfortable, but uniquely energy-efficient and money-saving for the long term. It’s even possible for the energy savings made over a number of years to augment the costs of the installation – it’s a modern take on heating that has the very real potential to pay for itself!
