While there are a number of different ways to heat your home, there is only one that keeps you warm when you working, but doesn’t waste energy. This is underfloor heating, the only type of heating that works from the ground up, allowing heat to rise naturally, while keeping it in a radiant form beneath your feet. These two components make it more energy efficient, and make it more comfortable for living with as well.
This type of heating can be installed in almost any home, and carries very few risks. In fact, it can often be installed for less than the cost of a new traditional heating system. This is important if you are on a budget and trying to make sure that you can heat your home for the best possible price.
It doesn’t cause damage to existing flooring, and any flooring that is fire safety compliant will not have any issues handling the heat that is output. It does work better with natural types of flooring, especially stone, as they are able to better hold the radiant effect, but it works well with synthetic flooring and wooden flooring as well.
Installation is normally done form a kit that has everything you need to put in this heating system. The instructions are easy to follow, and the entire process can be done quite quickly. This means that most people with home improvement knowledge can do it themselves, but that if you use a recommended professional, they will be in and out of your home rather quickly, and with very few mistakes, something that can’t be said about other forms of heating.
This type of heating has been used for over 50 years in Japan, South Korea, and many other countries, and results in less energy expenditure, but a warmer, dryer environment. It also does away with the feeling of stepping on a cold floor in the morning or a house that is too hot at the top while you feet are freezing.
Many people find that keeping their heater on a lower setting throughout the day makes it so that they are more comfortable overall. The underfloor heating accomplishes this by allowing you to maintain a steady temperature, storing energy in the flooring itself, and allowing heat to slowly rise towards the ceiling, keeping more heat inside your home for longer. The result is a huge saving on your energy bill and more personal comfort.
