Comfort and Control
As well as more comfortable and consistent room temperatures, each room will have a choice of individual control options. We can even supply controls compatible with your smart phone, allowing you to control each room temperature remotely. The temperature difference between the floor and head height is only a couple of degrees, allowing accurate control of room temperature across the whole room.
The underfloor heating system can be controlled by both time and heat, allowing you to set exactly when and to what temperature your home sits at. This is particularly useful in the winter months to allow a warm and comfortable living space to wake up in and return home to. Smart thermometers attached to the underfloor heating system by our Glasgow heating engineers provide real time feedback, allowing homeowners to track their central heating usage. You can also control the underfloor heating system remotely, meaning that if you are ahead of schedule or delayed for whatever reason, the heating system can be turned on or off to provide warmth or save money.
Looks and Space
With no unsightly radiators taking up room in your house, your home will look more modern as well as be more comfortable. With no radiators you can make full use of every bit of space within your room without blocking the heat. This is especially useful in smaller homes where space is at a premium. Every square metre of floor space is valuable, especially space next to walls where radiators are normally found. These spaces provide the most stable standing positions for furniture and should be utilised properly wherever possible.
It is also useful in family homes where young children are at play. Radiators are large, solid objects that pose a real danger to babies and young children. Radiators can also present a burn hazard across all age ranges. Underfloor heating, on the other hand, has in built safety features as well as being removed from direct contact with occupiers of the house. Consequentially, families may have to spend additional money making radiators family friendly. Removing radiators make a house far safer for children; this is turn reduces stress on parents, a near-priceless benefit.
Heating and Allergies
Underfloor heating creates less air movement than convection from radiators, meaning less dust circulation. If laid under carpets, underfloor heating keeps the carpet warmer. This results in less moisture retained in the carpet, removing a breeding ground for the house dust mite. Dust mites are a common allergen, so removing their breeding ground can significantly raise the standard of living for those prone to allergies.
Additionally, substantial amounts of dust can gather behind and inside radiators. Removing these removes both a gathering place for dust and dirt, as well as making rooms in general easier to clean. This in turn can cut down on the time required to perform house hold cleaning chores, saving precious hours or even days in free time over the course of a year. Less time cleaning means more time for your favourite activities or with the ones you love.
