Underfloor heating is the modern heating solution – creating the perfect temperature, making you feel warm and comfortable from the moment you enter the room.
Insulated underfloor heating is 78% more efficient.
Free Up Wall Space
No baseboards or heat vents mean extra space and design freedom.
Instant Cost Savings
Save up to 25% on your energy bills.
Underfloor Heating Benefits
Suitable for Every Project Type
Thanks to the availability of a wide range of products and systems, there is a solution for virtually any project type whether new construction or renovation – from a simple en-suite upgrade to a whole-house installation.
Systems can be linked to any heat source, giving total flexibility while allowing for the best energy savings, now and in the future.
Cost Savings and Increased Energy Efficiency through Zoned Control
Zoning your house with underfloor heating is simple, and unlike traditional systems that run all rooms at the same time, you can set the heating for individual rooms where and when you need it. Warmup’s unique programmable thermostats allow you to select the temperature levels and schedule to perfectly match your lifestyle. In each room, the temperature can be controlled accurately when needed. As such, reductions of up to 25% on heating bills can be achieved.
Health Benefits and Increased Safety
A floor system reduces humidity and is inhospitable to dust and carpet mites, while the radiant heat it gives out reduces dust circulation. These are important features for those who suffer from allergies and asthma. There are also no low-level hot surfaces or hard metal edges that come with a radiator system.
Design Freedom and Low Maintenance
With no baseboards or heat vents to take up valuable wall and floor space, our systems are a designer’s dream. Underfloor heating enables you to use every square metre of your home in the way that you want to use it, placing furniture where it suits you without having to worry about blocking the radiator.
The system is either low-maintenance, in the case of hydronic systems, or zero maintenance where electric systems are concerned.
Unsurpassed Comfort through Even Heat Distribution
Underfloor heating spreads warmth over the entire floor area using low-temperature radiant heat, rather than the high-temperature “point heating” associated with baseboards and heat vents. Warming a large surface at a low temperature produces the most comfortable form of heating possible by reducing the heat loss from our bodies, without overheating the surrounding air.
Underfloor Heating vs. Baseboards and Heat Vents
Your choice of heating system determines the way heat is distributed. Underfloor heating produces radiant heat which makes you feel warm. The term radiant heating is used as radiation and is responsible for a significant proportion of the “thermal comfort” achieved by this form of heating.
Baseboards and Heat Vents work by heating the air surrounding them, using convection. The heated air rises towards the ceiling and once this warm air has cooled down, it falls down to the ground level to be heated by the convection of the baseboards and heat vents again. This creates a flow of hot and cold air and inevitably hot and cold spots, where areas near to the baseboards and heat vents are warmer than the areas elsewhere in the room.
Efficiency and Comfort
The way the heat is distributed impacts the efficiency and comfort of the heating system. Radiant heat warms objects directly and it maintains the natural humidity in a room, whereas convection of warm air tends to reduce humidity, which can make the heated area feel stuffy.
If the whole floor of the room is heated then radiant heat gives a very even spread of heat, whereas convected heating heats one area initially and then takes some time to circulate to reach the required comfort levels. Rising air temperature through convected heating can cause discomfort and overheating, which in turn can reduce oxygen levels, and ultimately cause breathing problems if the air is too warm.
