Considering Underfloor Heating For Your Home?
More and more Witham residents are turning to Underfloor Heating, and it’s easy to see why Underfloor Heating offers many benefits to conventional central heating systems.
Radiator and electric heating systems only heat each room from a single (sometimes double for larger rooms) space on a wall. As a result, the room is not evenly heated and is often too hot, close to the radiator and too cold in certain areas.
Underfloor Heating pipes or coils snake the whole area heating the entire room evenly.
Once the Underfloor System is in place, there’s no need for the radiators anymore. Once the radiators are removed, you have free wall space, your room looks more prominent, and you have more room for wall units and furniture.
The entire floor is warm and will never feel cold underfoot when the Heating is on, a luxury feature, a new level of comfort.
Underfloor Heating is also a highly desirable selling point and will help you sell your home quicker and at a higher price if you ever decide to put your home on the market.
Underfloor Heating is completely insulated. The insulation pumps heat out for many hours once warm. The overall result is less energy is consumed to heat each room. As a result, Underfloor Heating is energy efficient and will lower fuel bills.
Underfloor Heating requires little maintenance and is very difficult to damage as most of the system is under the floor, out of harm’s way.
Most repairs are quick and straightforward. All the working parts are above the ground and fitted in easy-to-access places so the manifold, pump and valves can be replaced if required.
Wet Underfloor Heating pipes and electric coils will last for decades. It’s believed that modern wet pipes can last up to a century.
What Underfloor Heating System?
You have probably realised by now that Underfloor Heating is a worthwhile investment that will save you money over time in saved energy.
Underfloor Heating is available in many solutions and can be fitted in homes of all sizes and types. A system can be fitted in a single room or throughout your home.
The first thing to decide is if you are best off with a Wet or Electric Underfloor Heating System. One of our experienced Gas Safe Registered heating engineers will help you decide.
We offer free no-obligation surveys and quotes where an engineer will visit and write a quote based on the best Underfloor Heating system for your home, situation and budget.
Wet Underfloor Heating Systems
Wet Underfloor Heating Systems are the best heating systems for energy efficiency, better than electric and conventional central heating systems.
You must have a Boiler to power a Wet system.
Wet systems can be fitted with any flooring.
Wet systems are more expensive to install than electric Underfloor Heating systems.
Wet systems are best for homes with a Boiler powered central heating system and medium to large areas.
Electric Underfloor Heating Systems
Electric Underfloor Heating systems are faster and more straightforward to fit and, therefore, cheaper than Wet Underfloor Heating systems.
You don’t need a Boiler to run an electric system.
Electric systems can be used with all types of flooring
Electric systems are more expensive to run than wet systems
Electric systems are best for homes that don’t have a Boiler or when fitting Underfloor Heating to a single room or small space.
How Wet & Electric Underfloor Heating Systems Work
Wet and Electric systems are fitted with insulation heated by wet pipes or electric coils.
The insulation gets hot and emits heat for many hours even after being switched off, which makes for incredible energy efficiency.
Hot water flows from the boiler into the Wet pipes, which run under the floor throughout the room.
Electricity is used to heat electric coils that snake under the floor like wet pipes.
Both a Wet and Electric Underfloor Heating system will serve you well regardless of which one you choose. Our engineer will answer all your questions during your free no-obligation survey and quote.
Underfloor Heating Servicing & Repairs
Many homes in Witham already have Underfloor Heating systems fitted, in which case you may require a service or repairs.
Electric Underfloor heating systems rarely need any attention. However, wet Underfloor Heating systems should be checked and serviced once in a while.
If you’re a conscious homeowner, you likely already have an annual Boiler service. This is an excellent time to have your Underfloor Heating checked and serviced.
An engineer will ensure your valves, controls and pump are all set correctly and check all the seals are tight on the manifold and there’s no leaking.
If any of the working parts such as the pump, valves or controls have failed, we can quickly replace them, restoring your Underfloor Heating to full working order.
Airlocks can also be an issue with Wet systems. If you have cold spots on the floor, an airlock, or worse, a leak may be present. One of our engineers will swiftly remove the airlocks.
Thermal imaging enables the instant detection of leaks. So if you’re unlucky enough to have a leak, which is very rare with Underfloor Heating systems, we can quickly locate the source and undertake a repair.
