Under floor heating may at first glance appear to be an expensive way of generating heat for your home because in general, installations are not particularly cheap. However, there are plenty of benefits to under floor heating once the installation has been made which may well, in the long term, see you saving money and energy.
So, let’s just take a brief look (in no particular order) at some of the many benefits provided by under floor heating:
1. Comfortable and energy efficient – The distribution of heat is much more even than other methods of heating. This avoids having hot and cold spots in certain areas of a room. Feet are much warmer and if the feet are warmer, it is believed that actual room temperature can be reduced. This can definitely help to reduce fuel bills in the long term.
2. Aesthetically Pleasing – Once installed, other than keeping you warm, you would hardly know it’s there! No big, ugly radiators to paint around giving you much more floor space and a free reign to go DIY crazy on those areas that might otherwise be occupied by cumbersome radiators.
3. Green Friendly – This kind of heating system can work perfectly with any other “green” energy sources you have invested in, solar energy for example.
4. Easy to Install – There are several different kinds of under floor heating that Allbrite work with, ribbon mat, cable mat and carbon film. If you are considering converting to under floor heating, please visit our main website for much more information.
