If you want to just heat a conservatory, bathroom or kitchen floors (perhaps as part of a renovation or self build project) you will find that underfloor heating systems are competitive to electric based systems.
Water at usually 50°C temperature (low temperature) circulates through a series of continuous pipe loops laid under the floor. This turns it into one large radiant surface. All the pipe loops for each room (or zone) run from and back to the system manifold, which is conveniently located in an easily accessible position.
Underfloor heating provides cost effective, comfortable, unobtrusive heating in millions of properties. Underfloor heating from West London Plumbing and Heating.
This underfloor heating will supply warmth to a room from the floor up, rather than first heating the ceiling space. Because the larger heating surface does not need to emit as much heat per square metre compared to a radiator, it only need to use low temperature water.
This means that the boiler consumes less fuel; it has lower running costs and less environmental damage.
Underfloor heating emits greater proportion of its heat as radiant rather than convected heat. The room air temperature can be 2°C lower for the same comfort level because radiant heat warms the surfaces rather than the air around the surfaces. This will save you money every year as the lower temperature means less fuel is consumed and the system is more economical.
