Underfloor heating (UFH) has become increasingly popular in recent years, with many homeowners recognising the comfort and energy savings that come with it. In this article, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about underfloor heating, including its benefits, installation requirements, and tips for getting the most out of it. 

UFH is an increasingly popular way of providing warmth in homes. It’s a system where warm water is circulated through pipes which are laid beneath the floor covering, usually in the screed base. This type of heating has many advantages over traditional radiators, including cost-effectiveness, better thermal performance and improved comfort. 

Underfloor heating systems work by transferring heat up into the room from below rather than pushing it down from above like a radiator does. This helps to create a more even temperature throughout the room without any cold spots or draughts. The system also helps to reduce dust circulation and can be more efficient compared with using traditional radiators due to its larger surface area for heat exchange.

This system offers various benefits that are attractive to homeowners and business owners alike. One of the key advantages of UFH is energy efficiency; it requires less energy than other forms of heating because it warms up a space quickly without wasting energy on air circulation. In addition, UFH has low maintenance costs and works very well with all heat sources from wood pellets, air & ground source heat pumps to conventional sources like gas & oil


1. UFH is efficient and cost effective, as it heats the entire room rather than just one area. 

2. It eliminates cold spots and drafts, ensuring the room is warm even in cold weather. 

3. It creates a more uniform temperature within a space and therefore increases comfort levels. 

4. It can be installed under most types of flooring such as carpet, wood and tile. 

5. UFH systems are install under the floor covering and not on the walls like radiators freeing up valuable wall space in the room.


1. The initial installation costs of an UFH system are typically higher than those of traditional heating methods. 

2. Because they are installed in the floor there are slightly harder to retrofit in existing rooms due to having to completely empty the room to fit rather than fitting a wall mounted radiator and piping.

In conclusion, the many benefits of UFH make it an attractive option for any home. It is low maintenance, energy efficient, cost effective and can provide comfortable warmth when needed. With its ability to increase air-quality by reducing dampness and mould, it provides a healthier home environment for you and your family. Additionally, UFH does not take up precious space like radiators do, making it even more appealing.
