How Does Underfloor Heating Work?

Underfloor heating, commonly abbreviated to UFH, utilises radiant heat technology. This is a more efficient approach to home heating as it warms people and objects from the ground up by heating the floor surface. This can be up to 30% more efficient when compared to traditional radiators. *

The two different types of UFH are wet (hydronic) and electric. A wet system carries hot water though pipes to distribute heat across the room, while an electric system utilises heating mats or cables which are connected to your mains electricity supply.

The best solution for your home may vary depending on your project. Get in contact with our knowledgeable staff and let us guide you through the process.

Radiant Heating

The entire floor surface is uniformly heated, ensuring even and efficient distribution of warmth, resulting in a comfortable and consistent level of heat.

Traditional Heating

Radiators heat specific areas within a space, leading to uneven distribution of warmth. This can result in varying temperatures throughout the room.

Underfloor Heating FAQ’s

We’ve answered a few common questions regarding underfloor heating. If you you need some advice give us a call.

The cost of underfloor heating materials can vary significantly based on several factors, including the type of underfloor heating system (water-based or electric), the size of the area to be heated, the quality of materials, and installation requirements. Here’s a general overview of the costs associated with UFH materials:

  1. Wet Underfloor Heating:

Underfloor Heating Pipe: The cost of pipe will vary depending on the size of the installation and the quality of the pipe used.
Manifolds: Wet Underfloor Heating systems require manifolds to distribute the heat through the underfloor heating pipes. The cost of manifolds can vary based on the number of zones and quality.
Pump and mixing Valves: These components are essential for the operation of the UFH system and can vary in cost based on brand and specifications. This is key to the efficient operation of the system. At VPS we only sell premium products using Grundfos pumps and ESBE mixing valves
Thermostats: Costs for this can vary depending on the number of zones being controlled and the level of sophisticion required.

There are wide variations in the prices being charged by different merchants. To obtain best value for money it is important that buyers fully understand what they are buying from a quality view point and test the market for like for like prices.

  1. Electric Underfloor Heating:

Heating Mats or Cables: The primary component of an electric underfloor heating system is the heating cable or mat. The cost of these materials depends on the brand, quality, and coverage area. Higher-quality, more efficient cables or mats may be more expensive.
Thermostat: You’ll need a thermostat to control the electric system, which can vary in price depending on the features and brand.
Floor Insulation: Installing insulation beneath the heating cables or mats is often necessary to improve efficiency and reduce heat loss. The cost of insulation materials will depend on the type and thickness required.
Other Accessories: You may need additional materials like adhesive, adhesive tape, and floor sensors for the thermostat.

Underfloor heating systems can contribute to improved air quality in indoor spaces. Unlike traditional radiator based heating systems that can distribute dust and allergens throughout a room, underfloor heating operates without the need for air movement. This can have several positive effects on indoor air quality:

  1. Reduced Airborne Particles: Under floor heating systems do not rely on air circulation to distribute heat, which means they don’t stir up dust or other airborne particles. This can be beneficial for individuals with respiratory conditions or allergies.
  2. Minimized Allergen Distribution: Forced-air systems often distribute allergens like dust mites, pollen, and pet hair. Since our floor heating systems don’t rely on air movement, it can help minimize the distribution of these allergens, leading to cleaner air.
  3. Decreased Mould Growth: Underfloor heating can help maintain more even temperatures throughout a room, reducing the likelihood of cold spots where condensation can occur. A heated underfloor can contribute to lower humidity levels and decreased potential for mould growth, which is beneficial for indoor air quality.

While underfloor heating can contribute to improved air quality, it’s important to note that other factors in the indoor environment also play a role. Regular cleaning, proper ventilation, and the use of air purifiers can complement the positive effects of under floor heating system on air quality.

when selecting furniture for rooms with underfloor heating, it’s important to consider materials and designs that work well with the heating system. Here are some tips:

  1. Choose Furniture with Legs:
    • Furniture with legs allows heat to circulate freely, preventing the obstruction of the heating system.
  2. Opt for Good Heat Conductors:
    • Materials that conduct heat well, such as wood or metal, are pets suited to a heated underfloor. These materials help distribute the warmth evenly across the room.
  3. Avoid using flat based furniture
    • Flat based furniture will prevent heat distribution from your floor heating system. This is particularly important with regards to electric under floor heating and could cause the elements in the heating mat to overheat. If you must keep some flat based furniture, design the floor heating system so that the heating pipes or elements avoid these items.
  4. Use Rugs Wisely:
    • If you want to use rugs over your underfloor heating, choose ones that are made of materials that don’t act as insulators. Rugs with a low tog ratings  allow heat to pass through more easily. Avoid using thick, heavy rugs that may trap heat.
  5. Use Rugs Wisely:
    • If you want to use rugs over your underfloor heating, choose ones that are made of materials that don’t act as insulators. Rugs with a low tog ratings  allow heat to pass through more easily. Avoid using thick, heavy rugs that may trap heat
  6. Monitor Temperature Settings:
    • Be mindful of the temperature settings on your underfloor heating system. If the temperature is too high, it can affect the comfort of sitting on furniture directly above the heating elements.

By taking these factors into consideration, you can ensure that your furniture complements your underfloor heating system, providing both comfort and efficiency.

Underfloor heating (UFH) has gained significant popularity in the UK as an alternative to traditional radiator-based heating systems. UFH offers several advantages, including:

  1. Enhanced Comfort: UFH provides a uniform and consistent heat distribution throughout the room, eliminating cold spots and drafts. It radiates heat from the floor upwards, creating a warm and comfortable environment at floor level, where people spend most of their time.
  2. Energy Efficiency: Underfloor Heating systems operate at lower temperatures compared to radiators, resulting in reduced energy consumption and lower running costs. This makes UFH an eco-friendly heating solution that contributes to lower carbon emissions.
  3. Improved Aesthetics: Floor Heating eliminates the need for bulky radiators, creating a more spacious and clutter-free living space. This enhances the overall aesthetics of the room and provides more flexibility in furniture placement.
  4. Health Benefits: A heated underfloor can promote better air circulation and reduce dust movement compared to radiator systems, which can be beneficial for individuals with allergies or respiratory conditions.
  5. Suitable for Various Floor Types: UFH can be installed under a wide range of floor coverings, including tiles, wood, laminate, and carpet. This makes it adaptable to different room designs and personal preferences.

When selecting an underfloor heating provider, it’s essential to consider factors such as the type of UFH system suitable for your property, the desired level of control, and the overall energy efficiency of the system. The staff here at VPS Underfloor Heating will be happy to advise.
