How does floor heating help with my home’s sustainability?

Underfloor heating is a low-carbon heating option for new builds and home renovation projects. Clean Heat Solutions installs underfloor heating systems that use radiant heat technology to gently warm a room, a process that is up to 40% more energy-efficient than traditional heating techniques. Using underfloor heating throughout your home might can result in significant financial savings on your energy bills and assist you in creating a more sustainable home with a less passive impact on our environment. 

UFH systems are ideal for use with more environmentally friendly heat sources such as air and ground-source heat pumps.

Why does underfloor heating use less energy than central heating? 

Underfloor heating requires less energy to attain your optimum temperature than central heating systems while providing the same degree of comfort – significantly improving your home's energy performance. Underfloor heating also offers a 'zoned' heating approach, in which just the spaces that need to be heated are heated. This form of responsive heating saves energy. 

Installing high-quality insulation alongside your heater and using a Smart thermostat to manage it will also improve its efficiency. Smart multi-zone underfloor heating thermostats allow you to control your system from anywhere while also allowing automatic heating – guaranteeing your home is always at the optimum temperature and running at peak efficiency, automatically. Using a smart thermostat can help cut total energy use by up to 25%.

How much money can underfloor heating save me? 

You can also expect cheap long-term operating expenses thanks to the sustainable technology of underfloor heating. Running costs vary based on the design of your home, the system you choose, and the type of energy source and tariff utilised, but an underfloor heating system can help you save over £400 on your energy bills each year.
