Underfloor heating is well worth considering if you’re planning a new kitchen or bathroom, you’ve just moved into a new house, your current heating system is below par or you’re feeling thoroughly fed up of cold toes in the morning. 

As a home heating solution, Underfloor Heating is becoming increasingly popular and as such, more and more cost effective. At Roost Heating, we’re fully qualified installers of Underfloor Heating and can advise and design the best underfloor heating system for your home.

At Roost Heating, we recommend the 'wet' system of Underfloor Heating (Hydronic Underfloor Heating) which pumps warm water through a system of pipes under your floor. Heat rises up evenly and constantly from the underfloor heating system and then heats the room.

If you’re wondering about the benefits of opting for Underfloor Heating, we’ve come up with a handy summary list. If you read these and are interested in finding out more, or you’d like a quote, just get in touch with the Roost Heating team.

Underfloor Heating is efficient and effective

When radiators heat up, they heat just the air around them initially and it can take a while for the heat to spread. Underfloor heating heats the whole floor evenly and the heat radiates steadily throughout the room which means the optimum room temperature is reached much more quickly.

Underfloor Heating can save on heating costs

Underfloor Heating does not have to heat up to very high temperatures to keep you warm, which means that it doesn’t use as much energy as you might think.  Because your house will be heated more effectively than conventional heating, there is potential to save up to 15% on your heating bills ongoing. 

Underfloor Heating is  seriously low maintenance

Once laid correctly• by a qualified Underfloor Heating installer like Roost Heating, your underfloor heating can last a lifetime. It doesn’t need regular maintenance or ongoing checks either.

Underfloor Heating doesn’t make your rooms stuffy

Evenly heating the air (as Underfloor Heating does) means that you don’t get patches of overheated air which result in a stuffy feeling space. Radiators can sometimes gather and circulate dust (not great for allergy sufferers in particular) but this is not a problem if you choose Underfloor Heating. Whilst on the subject of allergens, dust mites hate the warm, dry conditions delivered with Underfloor Heating so that’s another common problem avoided.

Radiators can get in the way

If you’re aiming for a clutter free, minimalist home style then sometimes even the slimmest, most fashion forward radiators can get in the way. Getting a compromise between the best position for radiators and a great looking room layout can be tricky and the physical space radiators take up can reduce the overall usable space in your room too. Not a problem with Underfloor Heating - because it’s all under the floor.

Your flooring choice is still flexible

Underfloor Heating is compatible with all kinds of flooring so you don’t have to compromise on style. Wood, laminate, tiles or carpeting can be incorporated into your plan, ensuring your room is not only toasty warm- it also has a fabulous looking floor.

Underfloor Heating is great for the little ones

As well as providing a cosy play space, Underfloor Heating means you don’t have hot radiator panels, sharp metal edges or enticing buttons for the kids to fiddle with or hurt themselves on.
