Underfloor Heating Installation
The installation of Underfloor Heating is possible in any home.
Underfloor Heating can be fitted within new floors, on top of existing floors and between floor joists.
The system can be powered by hot water from your Boiler or electricity.
Several different forms of pipes, cables and insulation are available for Underfloor Heating, making for a highly versatile form of central Heating.
Underfloor Heating is superior to conventional central Heating in several areas.
Consistent Heating Throughout
The conventional radiator heats each room from a single point on the wall. As a result, some parts of the room are hotter than others. In comparison, Underfloor Heating heats the room consistently throughout as the whole floor is heated.
Better Energy Efficiency
Underfloor Heating includes insulation that absorbs, retains and emits heat. The insulation keeps a room for many hours even after being switched off. This results in better energy efficiency and lower fuel bills.
Improved energy efficiency lowers your carbon footprint and is better for the environment.
Increased Wall Space
Underfloor Heating eliminates the need for radiators, so there’s more available wall space for furniture or storage. The extra wall space will make the room look bigger.
Adds Value To Your Home
Underfloor Heating is a good investment. Once installed, it lasts for decades. If you ever decide to sell your home, installing Underfloor Heating is attractive to potential buyers, adding value to your home and making it easier to sell.
Minimal & Easy Maintenance
Underfloor Heating systems require very little maintenance. They are also straightforward systems to service. All the working parts are above ground, easy to access, and work on and change parts.
Types Of Underfloor Heating Systems
We install Wet and Electric Underfloor Heating systems. Both work very well. The type fitted will depend on your home, central heating system area heated and your budget.
Wet Underfloor Heating Systems
- Wet Systems use hot water underfloor pipes to generate heat.
- Wet system Underfloor Heating is incredibly energy-efficient and more cost-effective running than electric Underfloor Heating and conventional central heating systems.
- Wet systems are more complex and costly to install than Electric Underfloor Heating systems.
- Wet Underfloor Heating is compatible with all types of floor and flooring.
- Wet systems can only be fitted in homes with a Boiler powered central heating system.
Electric System Underfloor Heating
- Electric systems use electric underfloor cables to generate heat.
- Electric Underfloor Heating systems are quicker to install and cost less than wet systems.
- Electric Underfloor Heating systems are not as energy efficient as wet systems, so they cost more to run.
- Electric Underfloor Heating is compatible with all types of floor and flooring.
- Electric systems can be fitted in any home with a power supply.

Underfloor Heating Repairs & Servicing
We Repair and Service Underfloor Heating systems in Wickford.
Underfloor Heating systems rarely present any issues, but we are on hand if any occur.
If you have an existing Underfloor System and experience issues such as faulty pumps and valves, leaking manifolds, airlocks or leaks, we can quickly fix them for you.
Pumps and Valves that have ceased to operate correctly are quickly replaced, restoring your Underfloor Heating system to its complete working order.
Airlocks can cause cold spots under the floor. We can quickly remove airlocks, so your floor heats thoroughly, and if need be, we can deal with underfloor leaks. However, problems with the underfloor pipes are incredibly rare as they are near impossible to damage.
Annual servicing is recommended to prevent issues from occurring with your Underfloor Heating system.
An engineer will check that all the fittings to the manifold are secure with no leaking and that there are no airlocks in the pipes.
The engineer also tests the pump and motorised valves. The pump needs to be running at the correct power to serve the Underfloor Pipes while your valves control the flow of hot water. Both need to be in order for your system to run optimally. The controls are checked and tested also.
If you have an old Underfloor Heating system that you feel has waned in recent years and is not as warm as it used to be, we can restore it to life with Powerflushing. A procedure that removes all limescale and debris (which limit the heat potential) from the underfloor pipes.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you require Underfloor Heating Installation, Repairs or Servicing.
