Insulate!

Compared to an open fire or radiator, an underfloor heating system radiates heat delicately, whether wet or dry. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be cold; many homeowners with underfloor heating find it a far more comfortable heat source.

However, this implies that you must properly insulate your property for the greatest efficiency and advantage.

Any heating system you have, not simply underfloor heating, will not work as hard to maintain the right temperature in a well-insulated home. As a result, your heating cost should start to decrease due to using less energy to heat your home.

Underfloor Heating Controls

Underfloor heating uses a thermostat to control indoor temperature, like a central heating system. Generally, you control this temperature. The simplest thermostats work on schedule. You control a dial to determine the temperature and control the controls to turn off and on whenever you want.

Since underfloor heating may function at low temperatures, your home won’t get chilly or too hot. You can instruct the device to turn on additional heat when needed.

Increasing the heat takes no time in a well-insulated home, but it could take up to 20 minutes in a less well-insulated one. You can instruct the device to maintain the temperature or to reduce it after it reaches the appropriate level. In addition, you can manage the heat remotely with certain smart thermostats using an app on your phone, telling it to warm up the house before you get home.

Our aluminium spreader plates are great for an even and speedy distribution of heat from underfloor heating pipes, allowing your home to heat up quickly and efficiently, so you don’t have to worry about the temperature drastically increasing or decreasing.

Economic Temperature

The temperature in your home should be set a little higher for babies, young children, and the elderly because they are more susceptible to feeling the cold.

According to current recommendations, a living room or lounge should have a temperature of about 21°, while bedrooms should be about 18°. However, according to a study, the thermostat is often set to a toasty 23°c in most households.

You could save some money on your annual heating cost by lowering your thermostat by one or two degrees.
