Underfloor heating does away with the need for radiators, creating more space and clean lines. A heated floor is luxurious, and the heat reaches every part of the room so that you can walk around barefooted all year around. Stepping from a bath or shower onto a heated floor feels opulent.
Underfloor heating is up to 25% more efficient than other traditional heating systems so it can save you money on your fuel bills. This style of heating has become a desirable and modern system sought by many homeowners. If you dream of walking on a heated floor, let the team at Hoopla help you make it a reality.
How does an underfloor heating system work?
A wet underground heating system needs to be fitted by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Pipework is laid beneath the floor and water heated by a boiler passes through these pipes. Effectively your floor becomes a giant radiator! Underfloor heating warms a room much more evenly than a traditional wall-mounted radiator.
Considerations when installing underfloor heating
Before committing to underfloor heating, we recommend that you make the following considerations:
What floor covering will you be using? Carpets, for example, do not work with this system because the carpet stops heat rising into the room. Stone and tile floors are the best floorings to use because they will heat evenly and release warmth consistently throughout the space. This makes underfloor heating a popular choice for bathrooms and shower rooms.
What and where will the furniture and fixtures feature in the room? Kitchen cupboards, fridges, freezers, and other appliances cannot be placed on top of the heat source. This means you will need to confirm and commit to a room layout before the installation.
