Underfloor heating is popular in certain new builds and for places like conservatories - no radiators hanging on the walls taking up space! This type of space heating is ideally suited for screeded floors because of its heat retension and conduction qualities.
A ‘heat pump’, which gives slightly lower flow temperatures than a gas or oil boiler, will complement the lower working temperatures required by underfloor heating. Thick carpets and felt underlay should be avoided as floor coverings.
A space that is heated occasionally will not be suitable for underfloor heating as the heat-up and response time are not like that of radiators. Underfloor heating takes time to warm up.
In the correct environment and with planning, some buildings are most suitable for this type of heating.
