Facts About Underfloor Heating
Wet underfloor heating is not a new idea in the UK. The Romans were using hot air as an an early underfloor heating system many years ago. Today’s modern water underfloor heating systems allows the floor to become one large radiator.
Water underfloor heating systems are very easy to control as the floor surface temperature is very similar to the air temperature. All living areas can have their own programmable digital room thermostat. It's also worth noting that wet underfloor heating systems can be used for both domestic and commercial building projects.
Many self builders install the underfloor heating water systems themselves as this is not a difficult task. An underfloor heating system might be a bit more expensive to purchase compared to a traditional radiator system, but the running cost is lower and the comfort levels are much higher.
In the past one of the drawbacks with wet underfloor heating has been the response time to heat up the building compared to a radiator system. The modern solution is to operate the underfloor heating water system 24/7 with setback temperature during the day and the night - it is generally cheaper to run the underfloor heating system this way.
