An underfloor heating system from GES Mechanical is a very simple and cost effective way to extract as much heat from your system. Underfloor heating will provide you with a comfortable environment for your home or place of work.
Underfloor heating provides heat from the floor upwards to allow an even distribution of heat which maximises your level of comfort. It’s like having a huge, invisible radiator on your floor.
A conventional radiator system offers localised heat and requires your boiler to run at higher temperatures. This obviously uses more gas which leads to higher energy bills.
The heat from a radiator rises directly to the ceiling level and leaves the floor level temperature much colder. This allows a concentration of heat at head height which could cause some discomfort to some individuals.
An underfloor heating system is also good for your health and can help to reduce the number of dust mites in your home as moisture content levels are too low. This can help people who suffer from asthma or others that may have breathing complications.
Underfloor heating can initially be more expensive to install than a conventional radiator system as it takes longer and there are more components involved. However, it is a much more efficient system which requires the minimum of maintenance compared with radiators. It also produces a much more controllable and ambient climate (see diagram below).
Running costs will reduce over a period of time and you can maximise your wall space which potentially removes any hazardous hot surfaces. An underfloor heating system could ultimately result in a 15-40% energy saving over traditional heating methods.
Key benefits of underfloor heating:
– Uniformed heat, improved levels of comfort.
– Maximise floor and wall space. No ugly hazardous radiators.
– Improved energy efficiency (typical savings up to 25% on fuel bills).
– Requires water heated to just 45°C.
– Silent running. No expansion creaking/water flow noises.
– Greater safety as very hot surfaces from radiators are eliminated.
– Low allergy. Reduces airborne dust/dust mites for a healthier environment.
– Perfect for new builds but can also be retro fitted.
