Can I Have Underfloor Heating Installed?
Underfloor heating warms a room evenly from underneath the floor covering. There are a few things to think about when having this type of heating fitted. The floor covering that will be used is essential – you can’t use it with carpeting, for example, as the insulating quality of carpets with stop the heat rising into the room. Tiles and stone floors work the best – this material spreads the heat evenly across its surface and releases it into the room. This is why it’s a popular heat source for bathrooms.
Furniture and fittings that will go on top of underfloor heating need to be considered. Kitchen cupboards shouldn’t be placed above a heat source as it can lead to condensation inside. Fridges and freezers mustn’t be above a heated area either. These factors mean you will need to have a room layout in mind before placing the underfloor heating. That said, there is nothing nicer than stepping out of a shower onto warm tiles – so don’t let the considerations put you off.
