How does Water Underfloor Heating work?

Water Underfloor Heating works by turning the floor area into a giant, efficient and invisible heat emitter.

The system is composed of hard wearing and flexible lengths of Pert Al Pert pipe, embedded in the floor, to circulate warm water throughout the property. The warmth from the water is absorbed into the floor substrate, which then radiates into the room above.

What are the benefits of Water Underfloor Heating?

Because underfloor heating covers such a large surface area, the water within the system can have a lower temperature (approx. 40°C) than standard radiators require (approx. 75°C). For this reason, water underfloor heating is around 25% more efficient than radiators and up to 40% more efficient when paired with a heat pump!

Underfloor Heating also alleviates cold spots in your room which radiators are prone to and even removes the need for radiators at all, giving you back precious wall space.

Can I install Water Underfloor Heating myself?

An experienced DIYer should have no issues installing our low-profile panel systems or our in screed systems, some basic plumbing knowledge and general building experience should see you well on your way to completing your install. However, you will need a qualified plumber / electrician to complete all connections to the heat source to comply with UK building regulations.

Generally, though, Water Underfloor Heating systems are installed as part of a larger building project or property renovation and as such the installation is taken care of by the building contractor or employed installer.
