Underfloor Heating

Slate House Signs are very popular. And if you need any advice on Slate House Signs then you know where to go…yep – www.countyhousesigns.co.uk however – let’s take a closer look at underfloor heating (We don’t do it but we know a lot about it).

The recent gain in popularity that underfloor heating is experiencing isn’t hard to figure out, especially when you think about the level of comfort that becomes apparent when using underfloor heating. The basic principle of underfloor heating is pretty straightforward and it, in fact, dates all the way back to Roman times, albeit in a much more basic form of course.

The underfloor heating that is being used in homes today is significantly more technically sophisticated and can be well tailored to meet the specific needs of your home and to dovetail effectively around the design of your property. The kind of underfloor heating that is correct for you very much depends on the type of residence that you live in as well as what process you will be using to produce the heat for the underfloor heating. In any case, whatever the category of underfloor heating that you decide on, you will be well impressed with the numerous benefits that are obtained from the use of underfloor heating throughout your property.

So, there are many reasons why underfloor heating is becoming increasingly popular and many of them are fairly obvious. This particular form of heating warms the house from the floor up. This permits a constant circulation of heat as well as maximising the comfort levels. Radiators, on the other hand, proffer only localised heat and, as a rule, need to run at a very much higher temperatures. As well as this one finds that the heat given off by radiators tends to rise directly to ceiling level thereby leaving the temperature at floor level much lower. One usually finds that this concentration of heat at head height can result in discomfort and what one needs to achieve optimum comfort is to have the smallest amount of temperature disparity between the floor and the air above. This smaller difference also means that this type of system is much easier to control. Also – underfloor heating tends to be individually controlled in each room meaning that every room in the house can have it’s own specific temperature.
