When you have opted for an electric underfloor heating system as opposed to a hydronic one, you have the luxury of installing it in any room of the home. This means that you can pick those zones that are notoriously cooler than the rest of the home, helping to keep your family toasty and warm. In this article, we have outlined some of the main areas that homeowners choose to have this heating installed and the benefits you will receive.
▪ Lounge Room
Many families spend the majority of the daylight hours in the living areas of their homes. If these areas are cold and difficult to heat, you are unlikely to be comfortable and may even notice an increase in sickness throughout the family. Fortunately, underfloor systems can be used as your main heating source or as an auxiliary one. It is also compatible with all types of flooring, including carpet and timber.
This is probably the most common area in the home for underfloor heating to be installed. No one likes walking across cold tiles barefoot on those frosty winter mornings, but these systems will allow you to bathe in absolute luxury. It is even possible to install the heating in your shower stall, eliminating the struggle to stay underneath the stream of hot water at all times, and to install heated towel rails.
Many homeowners fail to realise that the kitchen can actually be quite a cold room, especially if you aren’t cooking or are using appliances that don’t generate a lot of outside heat (such as a slow cooker). To ensure that the chef of the family doesn’t freeze whilst preparing the evening meal, an underfloor system could be the answer. The heating can be installed in just certain areas if desired.
Sometimes known as a sunroom, these areas aren’t hugely common in the homes of today. If you have a conservatory, however, you may have found it hard to heat. This is often due to the excessive use of glass, which doesn’t form a very good barrier against the cold. Fortunately, underfloor heating can help to make this room more usable during the winter. It can also help keep your plants green all year round.
▪ Home Office
Those who work from home are often forced to turn whatever space is available into a study or office. Sometimes, this could be a spare bedroom; other times, it could be part of the garage or even an attic space. To ensure that your home office is kept at a comfortable temperature and that you are always productive, we recommend the installation of an underfloor system. Heating is essential for comfort.
As you can see, any room of the home can benefit from the installation of electric underfloor heating. We have only covered some of the most popular (such as the bathroom) and most overlooked (such as the kitchen) areas to show you just how useful these systems are. Whether you are interested in installing this heating in every room of the home or just in a few select areas, you will be able to control the temperature at the push of a button.
