When it comes to the benefits of underfloor heating installation in the Brighton and Hove, the general consensus amongst our past clients is that it is warmer and cosier than radiators when the weather turns chilly. However, if you are mulling over the benefits of underfloor heating, you’d be on the lookout for a more convincing response. We have you covered!
When installed, underfloor heating solutions can continue to provide radiant heat from your floor for a lifetime. The speed at which the underfloor heating warms up the space is one of its main benefits. On average, your floor can go from cold to cosy in 20 minutes or less depending on the size of the space. This is far quicker than any radiators can offer because radiators start by heating the air around them initially. This leaves pockets of spaces around the room cold.
Underfloor heating on the other hand starts by heating the whole room, including objects, due to radiant heat. The faster movement from cold to cosy is why underfloor heating can cut down your energy bill by as much as 15%.
Ever thought of how your living room would look without the radiator on the wall? One of the disadvantages of radiators is that they guzzle up wall space regardless of size and efficiency. Underfloor heating offers you the advantage of claiming your wall space back to give your interior décor the look and feel you have always dreamed of. Instead of allowing radiators eat up valuable wall space, you can now easily craft an entirely look for your rooms.
Radiators pose a safety challenge in a home with small children. The metallic edges are a danger to every child that comes in contact with it. There is always the risk of a child slipping away from supervision and getting on the wrong end of something that sharp. When you install underfloor heating, you have nothing to worry about as every component is hidden away safely under your floor.
A major health benefit of underfloor heating is the fact that it reduces respiratory problems. Warming a home with convection currents, as is the case with radiators, dust particles are captured and redistributed. Heating the room gently by radiation, as is the case with underfloor heating, on the other hand, doesn’t involve air movement. This makes it less likely for dust particles to be inhaled as we breathe.
Under floor heating has been noted to help alleviate the pains of those suffering arthritis as well. During the colder months, when there is low barometric pressure and high humidity, the symptoms of arthritis can worsen considerably. By staying in direct contact with a steady heat source as provided by underfloor heating, goes a long way to alleviate the pain felt in the feet, knee and ankles by sufferers.
This is not a direct health related benefit but radiators are dangerous around the elderly. When radiators get extremely hot, there is the risk of burning especially when there hasn’t been adequate covering provided. It is for this reason that more care homes are doing away with radiators to protect residents who are living with dementia.
When you have under floor heating systems installed, you can decimate dust mite numbers in your home by as much as 90%. The reason for this is the fact that underfloor heating reduces the moisture in your flooring which makes it harder for mite to survive and thrive.
