Underfloor Heating

Underfloor Heating

At Gondwana Green Heat, we have designed, installed, laid concrete, wired and commissioned underfloor heating systems in the UK for more than 10 years now, and we are happy to say most new or major refurbishment projects we work on include wet underfloor heating: but why and how does it work?

Wet underfloor heating is simply pipes laid underneath the surface of the floor, through which warm central heating water is pumped. This warm water heats the floor which in turn keeps your room at the desired temperature.

What is Wet Underfloor Heating?

Wet underfloor heating is simply pipes laid underneath the surface of the floor, through which warm central heating water is pumped.  This warm water heats the floor which in turn keeps your room at the desired temperature.

So what are the advantages of Wet Underfloor Heating?

  • Lower running costs compared to a conventional heat emitter, due to the fact underfloor heating runs at a reduced temperature.
  • The heat in the room is evenly distributed, unlike traditional radiators. The heat raises from the floor evenly meaning no cold spots.
  • No radiators, meaning more wall space for furniture or pictures etc.
  • Quiet and minimal maintenance.
  • Excellent for commercial installations where large spaces can be
  • heated evenly.
  • Underfloor heating works well with all renewable technologies as well as conventional gas and oil boilers.
  • Luxurious, can add value to your property.
  • No more cold feet in winter.
