Underfloor Heating or Radiators – Which is Better?

Underfloor Heating or Radiators – which is better?

On the surface, it may seem that conventional radiators would be the better option. They certainly can be less expensive to install than underfloor systems.
But what about ‘under the surface’?  Let’s look at some of the reasons why UFH might be the better option.
Running Costs
On average a properly installed UFH system reportedly costs around 25% less to run than radiators. UFH is more thermally efficient so the heat source can run at lower temperatures.
Health benefits
You don’t have to worry about dust trapped in the nooks and crannies on radiators. There are no exposed hot parts of the system so no scald risk.
UFH is ideal for lower temperature heat sources so it’s perfect for use with renewable energy. It typically runs at 40-50% lower temperature than radiators.
Individual room control is possible so there’s better comfort with lower energy consumption you don’t get those annoying draughts. Instead, you get comfortable, warm rooms and total zone-based control.
Space-saving – UFH is embedded so it frees up wall space.
