Advantages of underfloor heating

With winter approaching, it makes sense to look at the advantages of electric underfloor heating compared to other heating options.

Compared to water-based underfloor heating, electric underfloor heating is much easier, quicker and less expensive to install. There are also no maintenance costs connected to electric underfloor heating, as there are no moving parts. Once it is installed you don’t need to worry about servicing.

Underfloor heating has many advantages over traditional hot water radiators. For example, installing underfloor heating means that 100% of the wall space is free. This will give you more options when decorating or choosing the layout of your furniture.

Radiators are also difficult to clean, due to the shape, so they tend to trap dust. they work by heating air that travels over the radiator. The hot air rises and cold air falls, where it is heated. This air circulation leads to temperature differentials in the room. It also circulates dust and other allergens around the room.

Electric underfloor heating does not heat the air. Instead it warms the people and objects in the room directly. This saves energy, as you will feel the heat quicker. It also means there is a uniform temperature maintained in the room. Finally, as it does not create air currents, dust is not spread around.

Whatever heating system you are currently using, electric underfloor heating has advantages that need to be considered.

New radiant heating panel catalogue launched

At Flexel International, we are pleased to announce that we have expanded the range of radiant heating panels available.

This includes universal panels, which can be wall or ceiling mounted and are suitable for both residential and commercial properties.

Radiant heating panels specifically designed for commercial properties are genrally ceiling mounted. This frees up all the floor and wall space, allowing for more storage space and creating a more efficient workplace.

Finally, the range includes specialist church heaters, which are attached to pews and can be controlled individually, reducing energy consumption when heating a large space like a traditional church.

Choose radiant heating for a cleaner home

Choosing radiant underfloor heating or radiant heating panels instead of conventional hot water radiators can make it easier to keep your home clean and tidy, which is especially good for asthma or allergy sufferers.

This is mainly down to the way the different heating systems work. Hot water radiators heat the air around the radiator. The hot air then rises and cold air falls but is then heated by the radiator. This causes air to circulate in the room. THis means that allergens or dust will be picked up by the air currents and spread around the room. The shape of most hot water radiators also mkaes it easy forĀ  dust to gather on the radiator, ready to be circulated around the room when the radiator is on.

Radiant heating systems do not heat the air. Instead, the system heats the people and objects in the room. This means air currents are not created, so dust and allergens are not spread around the environment.

Also, our range of radiant heating panels are very easy to clean.
