Underfloor heating provides a number of advantages over other types of heating systems. From the high level of comfort that comes from consistent heat levels to the reduced energy costs thanks to the more efficient heating system. It also benefits from lower convection rates than for example a traditional radiator, and therefore fewer draughts.
Compared to radiators that only heat a small area of a room, underfloor heating evenly distributes heat around a room without circulating dust. In addition, With the correct levels of insulation, both water and electrical underfloor heating systems have the potential to provide a heating solution that saves users more energy and money long term.

Underfloor heating can be used with a variety of floor coverings, allowing you to customise your floor to suit the rest of your home while still benefiting from this innovative heating solution. UFH systems can be used with the following floor coverings:
Electric underfloor heating uses electric heating mats to warm the floor up. When installing electric systems, the underfloor heating specialist will make use of heating mats underneath the floor, which will be placed on top of a layer of installation with screed installed on top. We recommended that you have an earth grid matt if you require electrical underfloor heating to be installed in your bathroom.
A wet underfloor heating system pumps warm water through plastic pipes that are under the floor, which are usually connected to the main central heating source. The engineer will then connect your boiler to the underfloor heating, this is usually dispersed by a stainless-steel manifold. The manifold is the most important part of the underfloor heating as it controls the flow, temperature and directions of the hot water. The specialist will also install a thermostat in the room so you can control the temperature. The Energy Saving Trust recommended water underfloor heating since it is more energy-efficient than radiators.
In addition to providing underfloor heating to our domestic clients, we can also install an underfloor heating solution for commercial clients in London and the Greater London area. If you are a business owner looking to design, plan and instal an underfloor heating system on a budget, then we will have solutions for you.
Underfloor heating’s low-temperature requirements make it a good choice for those who are concerned about their environmental impact and make use of renewable energy sources, such as air source and ground source heat pumps. Many newbuilds and commercial developments are making use of sustainable alternatives to mains gas, making underfloor heating a good option.
Over time, you might find that your underfloor heating system requires some maintenance or repair work to keep it operating fully and heating your floors. Many plumbers hesitate when it comes to underfloor heating systems, which is why it is best to always call out an underfloor heating specialist, like the ones at VHL.
