What are the advantages of underfloor heating?

There are many advantages of underfloor heating compared to traditional radiators, that's why the market sector for underfloor heating is growing so rapidly.

While the initial installation costs are higher, underfloor heating can pay for itself within a surprisingly short amount of time due to the energy savings and higher efficiency.


Cheaper to run 
Underfloor heating has a much lower running temperature between 35 - 50ºC. Compared to traditional radiators which have a running temperature between 65 - 80ºC. This means your boiler has less 'on' time which leads to lower energy bills. These lower temperatures are especially advantageous for modern condensing boilers which are at their most efficient lower temperatures. 
50 year guarantee!
Polypipe trust their products so much they give their underfloor pipework a 50 year guarantee!
Low maintenance costs
Naturally underfloor heating has far lower maintenance costs than other systems this is due to less components in the systems. There are less dissimilar metals in the system causing sludge build up, radiators are made from steel which is the metal in central heating systems that causes magnetite sludge. 
Better all round comfort
Your home will feel more comfortable when heated through the floor. This is due to a more even temperature throughout your home with no hot and cold spots in different areas of a room. Underfloor heating warms the floor across a large surface area which give the room pleasantly a warm ambient temperature.
Great for open plan spaces 
Underfloor heating lends itself to open plan living spaces due to the even heat distribution. 
Works with existing homes 
Your existing building can be brought right up to date with a modern energy efficient heating solution without the disruption of digging up the floor, Polypipe offer over lay panels that can be laid over the existing floor saving significant time. Take a look at the Hogwarts School case study.
Works with any floor covering 
Underfloor heating will work with any floor covering. But some floor coverings will work better than others. Read Polypipe's guidance on floor covering and their considerations for each.
Takes up less room 
Not having to accommodate for radiator wall space is another advantage of underfloor heating, meaning more space for furniture or to keep your home feeling less cluttered.

    These guys are fantastic! Since I moved to a new property at the beginning of the year I’ve had to have a fair bit of work done to my very old central heating system and pipework. I could not recommend this company enough and will always use them if I have anymore problems in the future. They are all very polite, experienced and courteous. Thanks very much to all of you, you do a great job 🙂

    After being let down by a different company, I requested a call out on behalf of my elderly mum who had been without heat or hot water for several days. Liam responded to the call out and I cant thank him enough for identifying the problem quite quickly and for resolving this the same day. Super service, great customer care and answered my questions and offered information.
    Great stuff
    ps. Mum is also super pleased and nice and warm now

    Liam gave up part of his evening to make sure that my boiler was seen to following a missed booking. I appreciate they have staff that will go out of their way to ensure good customer service, which sets them apart from many other companies. Even offered to wave the charge!
