A growing trend in new home construction is that of underfloor heating. Many homeowners are embracing this concept because it is economical, efficient, and takes up very little space. Underfloor heating can even be added to existing homes, garages or workshops, and can be very cost-effective to operate since warm air naturally rises.► Click For Free Underfloor Heating Quotes ◄
Underfloor heating consists of a series of cables or tubing that are placed underneath the floor joists of a home. It can also include diffusing plates that are installed in a building's subfloor as well. When these units heat up, warmth is then disbursed evenly throughout the room, all without the need for radiators, baseboard heaters or separate ductwork. It is compatible with a number of heating options including oil, gas, electric and geothermal, so homeowners do not necessarily have to convert their current method of heating in order to enjoy the benefits.
Average underfloor heating costs will vary based on the type of floor a structure has, its size, and the number of rooms involved. In new construction, heating elements are placed before the top layer of floor is installed, but in existing homes, flooring will need to be removed first. As such, installation can be expensive when underfloor heating is placed in concrete or marble floors. Larger rooms need more extensive cables or tubing, which in turn increases the price. Separate units are installed in each room, so the more rooms you have that need heating, the more your project will wind up costing.

Q. Is underfloor heating expensive?
A. Many people think that underfloor heating is a luxury that most people canít afford. The truth of the matter is that itís relatively inexpensive to install at approximately £395 per 20 square metres, and is also an efficient way to heat a room or even a whole house. The only down side is that whereas wall mounted radiators heat up a room quickly, underfloor heating may take an hour or two before the room is at the desired temperature. This can be mitigated with timers and thermostat settings. For more information on pricing, contact one of the professionals in our network.

15 Sep Central Heating: Porch door needed. Would like it to match our existing exterior doors with an oak-effect uPVC material. Non-standard door sizes so would need to consider a one-off door. Best prices for the door please.

15 Sep Solar Panels: Repairs needed to the sills of our traditional wooden windows. We have 12 windows in total. The windows themselves seem fine, but the sills have rotted badly presumably due to poor quality wood.
