Homes in colder regions normally have some kind of heating system to ensure they are kept warm and comfortable during the chilly winter months. There are various kinds of heating systems today and each has its own advantages.
One system that has become very popular among many homes particularly in the U.K. today is the underfloor heating type. The reasons go beyond just the high comfort level achieved through this appliance. Other factors that make it appealing to homeowners are its low running cost, benefits to the environment and the fact that it’s a space saver.
The underfloor heating is considered the most comfortable system due to the fact that it’s primarily radiant. By radiant, it means that the energy emitting from the floor is absorbed by the surrounding surfaces thereby providing even temperature throughout the room.
When used together with the right flooring materials, this type of heating can provide quality indoor air. Tiles, slate, terrazzo and concrete would be ideal because they have low volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions.
