Underfloor heating is widely acknowledged as one of the most efficient methods of heating your home.
- It can be used to heat one room up to a full house over two, three or four floors; the possibilities are endless.
- Underfloor heating can be installed to be operated on an individual ‘zone’ basis or ‘whole house’ giving you ultimate control over your home’s heating and energy usage.
- It can be used in conjunction with Nest Learning Thermostats, or similar devices, that can be controlled using a smart phone or tablet from wherever you are.
Underfloor heating is an energy-efficient, low maintenance and cost-effective way to heat your home.
- By eliminating conventional radiators, you can free up wall space
- Underfloor heating provides a constant even temperature throughout a space removing the risk of ‘cold spots’
- Water underfloor heating typically runs at a lower water temperature than radiators making it more energy efficient.
A water based underfloor heating system will work with any type of boiler, including condensing, wood-fired, oil or vented. It can also be connected to a number of renewable energy heating sources, such as:
- Ground source heat pump
- Air source heat pump
Underfloor Heating FAQ’s
Our underfloor heating systems work by pumping warm water through pipes under the floor, from a heat source such as boiler or heat pump the pipes are embedded in the floor. This is known as a ‘wet’ system. It adopts the principle that heat rises as the warmth from under the floor is radiated into a room.
Yes, underfloor heating is up to 25% cheaper to run than radiators with a condensing boiler and up to 40% cheaper to run with a heat pump, according to EuRay 2005.
We carry out a free home survey so that you can see if your property is suitable for underfloor heating.
We establish what system will best suit your home and be the most cost-effective and least disruptive option for you.
We check for floor heights and areas you want to heat as our systems don’t have to be installed throughout the whole house.
No, any boiler will work. Underfloor heating works with gas, oil and LPG boilers as well as heat pumps.
Yes, you can. For example, we take out the radiators on the ground floor and we then blank all but one feed off and we will use that to run your new UFH system.
It can be, as each room has to be cleared and accessed, so ideally it’s a job best done before you move in. However, if you are just having one room done then it shouldn’t cause too much of a disruption.
The time of installation is different for each floor construction, and we will be able to advise on timescales at the quote stage.
We pressure test each system thoroughly to ensure that there are no leaks. The only way the pipework will leak is if someone else damages the system, for example, by nailing something through the floor. However, if the pipe leaks at the manifold, it is a simple, 5-minute job to repair.
Yes, the pipework is guaranteed for life.
No, installing a thermostat requires electrical work that must be carried out by a Part P qualified electrician.
Yes, it can and it poses many different benefits from decreased energy consumption to free up living space as radiators aren’t needed. Underfloor heating can be used as the primary source of heat as long as the rooms have the right amount of insulation. A heat loss calculation needs to be made to establish how much heat is needed to heat each room and whether the insulation levels allow underfloor heating to use a whole-house system. Heat loss calculations are carried out by a builder, architect or a heating engineer. There are also heat loss calculators available online, if you know the information.
Radiators mainly work on the principle of heat convection, not radiation. Air is heated to a high temperature in the range of 65-75 degrees and needs to be moved from the radiator to the rest of the room. This is achieved using thermal currents of hot air moving to the ceiling, cooling and falling to create an air cycle. Underfloor heating systems use considerably less energy than radiator systems, heating the floor mass rather than the air.
Yes, if you are on a new build. However, you won’t be able to if you are renovating.
Yes as this stops the heat from going into the ground.

We cover Cheshire, South Manchester, Manchester and Staffordshire, in the UK.
Yes, the best way to operate UFH is to establish the temperature you are comfortable with and we then set the thermostat at that temperature. The system then just looks after itself.
As many as you want, we can heat 1 room up to a full house over 2, 3 or 4 floors, making the possibilities endless. Whatever you need, we will design a system just for you.
Yes. We can install underfloor heating systems in individual zones or controlled all-in-one, giving you the ultimate power and control for your heating and usage.
Yes, there is. We recommend Nest Thermostat that gives you the power to control multiple zones with simply your phone or tablet. However, we have many different other alternatives for you to choose from.
All you need to provide is a name, email and address and we will do the rest.
We have sample products in our office, but special arrangements would need to be made if you actually wanted to see a system.
There is no maximum and it all depends on the system you choose and the final floor covering that you wish to have.
This would be established on a site visit.
It will work with any floor covering apart from solid wood due to the fact that solid wood is a breathing material and will shrink and expand at different times.
Yes, they are. Warm water underfloor heating systems use lower flow temperatures than a traditional radiator system, and because it covers a larger surface area, it is still able to heat the room effectively. As a result, underfloor heating is around 25% more efficient and effective than a radiator system. It works by heating your home from the floor upwards, keeping your toes nice and warm and your head cool.
On a new build, we set the pipes onto the insulation and it is then screeded over. Depending on the other floors composition, will depend on what system we use.
If you want to save money and energy, and want a heating system that is safer and will avoid clutter in your home or new build, our underfloor heating systems might be ideal for you. We believe that every home should keep you and your family warm in the best possible way, and we think that our warm water underfloor heating systems are a great alternative to provide you with comfort and toasty feet.
