Underfloor heating use to be a heating option which was mainly in homes of the middle classes. However, over the last few years it has increased in popularity hugely, becoming a great affordable heating solution for regular households too. With this form of heating comes a range of benefits which people don’t know about. In this blog we will be talking about just some of these great benefits of underfloor heating systems.
One of the key advantages of underfloor heating is it’s great energy efficiency in comparison to regular heating systems. When relying on radiators to heat your home, heat is produced very quickly and will raise temperatures in your home for a little while. After a while most systems are set to shut down and the house will cool down just as quickly. During colder months your energy bills will rise significantly, and you’ll end up spending a lot of money. With underfloor heating your floors warm up slowly and send heat upwards through each room. This allows your home to retain the warmth that is produced, meaning you can cut down on the amount of energy that is used.
The amount of space which can be freed up by having underfloor heating installed is amazing. Most people have radiators around the home, which tends to fill areas which could be much better used in different ways. Losing your radiators could mean that you can use the newfound space wisely with the installation of storage units or shelves. Underfloor heating’s hidden nature also means that you won’t have to worry about finding ways to cover up radiators which ruin your home’s aesthetic.
If you’re looking to sell your home, it’s important to make sure everything is as up to date as possible. This will increase the property value and also make it much more appealing to potential buyers. With underfloor heating more in demand than ever, many people will see it as a unique selling point of the property. A lot of buyers will even be willing to pay more for this feature.
