Depending on the room and the type of heating you have installed, underfloor heating can be a more efficient method of heating a room other conventional options. If the system you have installed is large enough, it can mean that you can get rid of your old radiators, which can free up extra space and give your home a better decorative finish.

  • Underfloor heating be installed either in new build properties, or retrospectively
  • Standard electric underfloor heating packs can be bought off-the-shelf

Choosing the Type of Underfloor Heating – Electric versus Water

When choosing whether to go with an electric or a water-based underfloor heating system, you will need to take into consideration the size and the shape of the room you want the system installed in, and whether the system is to be installed under an existing floor; as part of a refurbishment, or as a total new build.

Water-based underfloor heating systems tend to need more available depth in order to accommodate the size of the pipes. It’s slightly trickier to install than electric.

Installing Electric Underfloor heating

Electric underfloor heating can be easier to fit into smaller rooms, and rooms that have difficult spaces. It can be installed by competent DIYers, although we would always recommend that you should get a qualified electrician, or competent plumber to do the wiring.

Installing Water-based Underfloor Heating

Water-based underfloor heating systems need to be installed by fully qualified plumbers like us here at CW Plumbing and Heating Services. It’s not just the installing of the pipes, but the connection up to the boiler, especially if you’re talking about a gas fired boiler. In this instance, not only should you use a qualified plumber, but one who is Gas Safe registered; again, like we are here at CW.
