What are the benefits of underfloor heating for a homeowner?
Many homeowners view underfloor heating as a luxury since it is still relatively new. At Pipeline Plumbing Services Ltd, many of our clients choose to include it in their home improvement projects, in fact, more than half use it when remodelling their kitchen or bathroom on the ground floor. It may take more money upfront to install, but it's cheaper to run. If you're doing a home renovation or extension project, now is the perfect opportunity for that upgrade to underfloor heating.
Underfloor heating is ideal for small spaces or rooms with minimalist designs. Radiators, on the other hand, are often visible and require extra room space to install A radiator can limit your options for placing furniture, and it plays an important role in the overall dynamic of a room.
Cost and Energy saving
Although underfloor heating costs more to install than traditional central heating, it is cheaper to run as it heats rooms at a lower temperature. The lower temperature of underfloor heating means you do not have to use as much energy. Because they are insulators, they require less energy to heat up (as well as cooldown) than other materials. After the underfloor pipes have cooled down, an efficient flooring material will keep the room warm.
Easy to maintain
Very little maintenance is required when it comes to underfloor heating therefore you will not need to worry about any maintenance costs.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
Underfloor heating systems, especially water-based systems, work efficiently at low temperatures. This reduced energy demand means fewer carbon emissions, contributing to a smaller carbon footprint.
Integration with Renewable Energy
Water-based underfloor heating systems can be easily paired with renewable energy sources such as solar panels or air-source heat pumps. This not only reduces costs but also ensures a sustainable heating solution.
Unlike radiators, which might lead to hot spots in certain areas and cooler areas in others, underfloor heating provides consistent heating. This uniformity ensures that no energy is wasted.

- No pipes, so no risk of leaks.
- Perfect for rooms that aren't used regularly, like guest rooms, as they heat up quickly.

Compatibility with Different Flooring Types
One of the most common queries homeowners in West Sussex have about underfloor heating is its compatibility with various flooring types. Underfloor heating is incredibly versatile, making it an excellent match for many flooring options.
Tile and Stone
These are among the most effective materials for underfloor heating. Their thermal conductivity means that heat from an underfloor system transfers to the floor surface quickly, ensuring efficient heating.
Laminate and Wood
Modern laminates and engineered woods are perfectly suited to underfloor heating. However, the thickness of the wood can influence the heat output, with thinner wood varieties tending to be more effective.
It's entirely possible to lay carpets over underfloor heating, provided the tog rating (thermal resistance) doesn’t exceed a recommended level, typically around 2.5 tog.
Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) and sheet vinyl are gaining popularity, especially with the advancements making them suitable for underfloor heating systems. They transfer heat effectively, ensuring a warm and cosy floor.
