    Why Underfloor Heating is a Great Solution to Cold Toes

    There's no doubt at all that it's much easier to install a wet Underfloor Heating system if it's a New Extension or New Build as there are no existing floors to rip up. That's not to say it's not possible; it'll just take a wee bit more time, money and effort. However, the benefits of underfloor heating will be there long after the pain of installation has worn off.

    There is also the option of using a dry/electric Underfloor Heating system. It's certainly easier to install, a bit cheaper, less work to be done underneath, but there can be a difference in running costs.

    In general existing smaller rooms or existing rooms that are only occasionally used could be natural choices for the dry system as the running and installation costs would balance out.

    It would be best if you also considered whether simply adding radiators would solve the problem. We know we are talking ourselves out of a job here, but sometimes it makes sense to go traditional.

    You, too, can be as comfortable as the dog. As long as you don't mind lying on the floor....

    Common Questions About Underfloor Heating in Glasgow

    Is underfloor heating expensive to run?

    A: The standard answer is that if the underfloor heating is installed correctly, with the proper foundation and insulation then it can be more efficient than radiators. Gas(wet) installations are generally a bit more effort to instal but are more efficient than electric, which is easier to instal. 

    What are the disadvantages of underfloor heating?

    A: Access is the most common issue. if you have access ie it's a new build or the floor is easily lifted then installing underfloor heating is straight forward. If you have to dig out a concrete base or you have neighbours below then obviously this changes things. It's best to discuss things with your local friendly professional.

    What type of underfloor heating is best?

    A: As mentioned above, a gas heated water system is generally regarded as being best for running costs. Electric installation is cheaper so in the short term is more cost efficient. If you have access to cheap electricity then even better. 

    Is it cheaper to leave underfloor heating on all the time?

    A: It takes time for the system to get to it's optimum temperature so switching it off and on regularly does not help with cost savings. The norm is that the system is left on constant apart from warm outside temperatures or nighttimes, if preferred.
