Benefits of
Underfloor Heating

Divider white2

Underfloor heating offers numerous benefits over traditional, sometimes bulky radiator systems:

Worcester Underfloor Heating

More energy efficien

Underfloor systems, particularly the water systems, circulate hot water via water pipes laid beneath the floor rather than through radiators mounted on walls. This underfloor heating design allows the heat to rise and warm the room from the floor upwards, meaning less heat is wasted heating the air at ceiling height and reducing running costs.

Provides even, consistent warmth

 Radiator systems can create cold spots in a room away from the radiators. But a reliable underfloor heating requires a comprehensive design that ensures the entire floor area is warmed, eliminating cold spots.

More comfort

Walking on a heated floor, especially when the temperature reaches between 65-75 degrees Celsius, feels superb compared to cold hard flooring. It’s especially appreciated in bathrooms where the contrast between cool air and warm floors is most noticeable.

Makes rooms feel more spacious

Underfloor heating without the need for wall-mounted radiators creates a minimalist look, making rooms feel more open.

Improved indoor air quality

Radiant heating means no radiators churning up dust, improving indoor air quality which can especially benefit allergy sufferers.

Types of Underfloor
Heating Systems


There are two main types of underfloor heating systems we install:

  • Water-Based Underfloor Heating

    This involves laying pipes connected to a boiler or heat pump. Water is heated and circulated through the underfloor heating manifold that distributes warm water to each UFH zone, gently heating the floor. This method is often integrated into extensions or new builds as it may require screed over the pipes.

  • Electric Underfloor Heating

    Electric systems use heating cables or mats laid out underneath or onto the subfloor and covered with a floor finish. The cables warm up when switched on and emit heat upwards. Electric underfloor heating is quick and easy to install and an ideal retrofit option as no hydronic piping is required.

Installation Preparation

  • For water systems, especially if integrating with existing floors or central heating, the concrete floor is prepared with channels for the pipework. Insulation is laid to maximize heat efficiency, ensuring your renovation is energy-effective.

  • Electric systems, often considered in many renovations, require the subfloor to be screeded and primed before laying heating cables/mats.

Pipework & Wiring Installation


Pipes or cables are meticulously laid out according to the agreed design and connected to the manifold or thermostat. In the central heating system integration, especially with gas boilers that condense, proper linkage is vital. We install sensors to monitor floor temperature.

Underfloor Heating Costs


Underfloor heating system costs depend on various factors, including:

Worcester Heating Underfloor Costs
  • Type of system

    Electric systems tend to be cheaper than water-based for smaller areas. Larger homes usually suit a hydronic system.

  • Size of installation

    Costs incrementally increase according to the floor area to be heated.

  • Complexity

    Complex tube or wire layouts for irregular shaped rooms or multiple zones will increase labor and planning costs.

  • Floor covering

    Installations under tiles or stone require more preparation and levelling which adds cost.

  • Boiler integration

    Linking underfloor piping to an existing or new boiler has added costs for connections.

  • Materials and brands

    We offer systems across pricing tiers from entry level to premium.
