Information Sheet


Underfloor heating is an ‘invisible’ heating system that works by pumping a controlled flow of warm water from any heat source, such as a boiler or heat pump, through tubing embedded in the floor. It can also be installed in renovations, where the tube fits in slim panels that sit directly on top of the existing floor. Because the emitting area is large, sufficient warmth is provided across the whole floor surface to heat the room effectively.

Apart from being invisible and providing comfortable warmth without causing a draught, Warm water underfloor heating (UFH) is the modern affordable way to provide energy efficient heating to domestic and commercial buildings. It enables low temperature and eco-friendly heat sources to perform at their best and reduce carbon emissions. With individual room control as standard, users prefer the comfort levels, with heat where they want it, when they want it. Being‘invisible’, you can place fixtures and fittings wherever you choose

UFH can be controlled by a standard dial-type thermostat, or remotely via a smartphone or tablet depending on your preference.

UFH works with all heat sources, whether a gas or oil boiler, ground or air source heat pump, bio-mass boiler, or solid fuel.

Design is key to a UFH system working at its best, Once up and running, UFH is virtually maintenance free, and leaks from pipework are unheard of.
