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.
