Given the issues that come with other traditional heating systems, underfloor heating is increasing becoming a preferred alternative. For those who are unfamiliar with it, underfloor heating is a form of central heating that controls indoor climate and provides thermal comfort by using radiation, convection and conduction. It is a modern, high spec feature that allows you enjoy the comfort of warm floors during chilly winter evenings. At Clifton Hill & Montpelier Underfloor Heating Brighton and Hove, we help homeowners in from Adelaide to West Hill to set up, maintain or repair their underfloor heating systems.

Underfloor heating systems are sought after because they are highly efficient and reduce overall cost of energy bills. Modern underfloor heating systems either use fluid flowing in pipes or electrical resistance elements to heat up the floor. Both types of heating can be installed as primary (used by the whole building) or localised (in specific rooms) for thermal comfort. Electrical resistance heating systems are only used for heating, but in rooms where space cooling is also needed, a hydronic system is installed.
Other uses of underfloor heating besides indoor warmth are in driveways, landing pads or football fields to melt ice in winter.
There are two major types of underfloor heating systems; hydronic and electric. Hydronic systems consist of water, or a mixture of anti-freeze and water as the means of heat transfer (fluid) in a closed loop.
This is recirculated between the boiler and the floor through the pipes. The pipes used for hydronic underfloor heating are often made from polyethylene.
The electric underfloor heating system is used only for heating purposes and comprises of non-corrosive, bendable heating materials such as cables, pre-designed cable mats, carbon films and bronze mesh. Because of their low-profile nature, electric heating elements can be installed directly under floor finishes in a thermal mass. Some electric systems work with low voltage technology while others use line voltage technology. Underfloor heating system come with a number of benefits.
We usually advise our customers to switch to underfloor heating systems because of its energy-efficiency and cost-effective qualities. But there are other benefits. While vent-type heaters or radiators kick up dust and trigger allergic reactions (sneezing and coughing), underfloor heating works its way up from the floors and surrounds the room with warmth. It is healthier than traditional heating systems. It can also be focused to heat up a localised area thus improving its efficiency and reducing unnecessary costs. Underfloor heating leaves you with sufficient space while radiators are bulky and take up much needed space.
Making a decision to switch your heating system can be difficult, but it is worse when you make the wrong plans about the right choice.
