Underfloor Heating Installations Ireland
A underfloor heating system saves home-owners money on their heating bills. In the average home half the energy we use goes on heating and hot water. An underfloor heating system heats a room by radiant heating. It warms the room by circulating warm water through pipes located beneath the floor. It evenly spreads heat across the room. So there are no cold draughts.So under floor heating is cheaper to run as it heats from the floor up and not from the ceiling down. Plus the humidity is higher, and as a result the room will not become stuffy. Radiators are no longer needed so giving more room space and so dust is not circulated.
Furthermore a underfloor heating system does not need as much energy as radiators to heat your home. So your boiler can run at a lower temperature saving you money. To further increase savings you can install a heat pump and underfloor heating to heat your home. This can result in savings of up to 80% when compared with fossil fuel based systems. Thus reducing the use of fossil fuels, and also reducing your home heating bills.
