Underfloor heating is fast becoming a popular choice for many homeowners when renovating their properties, and there are plenty of good reasons. Traditional radiators have admirably served the people of Oxford and the UK for many decades. Still, any experienced plumber would agree that underfloor heating systems offer a far more effective heating solution. In this article, we’ll look at the top four reasons homeowners in Oxford should consider underfloor heating.
It provides a more efficient method of heating
Underfloor heating is available as warm water systems or electric elements which heat the room. Both methods can warm a room when heated to just fewer than thirty degrees Celsius, which is around half the heat needed for traditional radiators. Not only is underfloor heating more efficient and less costly to use, but they also warm the entire room effectively and negate the ‘cold spot’ syndrome associated with radiators.
Underfloor heating gives you more space
Ask any plumber, and they will tell you that removing the radiators from the walls in your property frees up a lot of wall and floor space for added interior design and features. It makes decorating more accessible and to most eyes, is a more appealing finish to a room.
With underfloor heating, there’s no chance of small children catching themselves on the jagged edges of painted radiators or burning themselves on the hot metal. Underfloor heating also improves the air quality in your home by removing air turbulence and drafts.
Another excellent benefit of underfloor heating is the quick installation time. Whether for a new build or renovation project, a plumber in Oxford can typically install a new system in around two days, depending on the size of the property.
