Chester homeowners seeking luxury comfort and a more energy efficient way of warming their rooms can benefit from underfloor heating. Low flow systems, underfloor heating uses less energy than conventional central heating to achieve the same levels of warmth, which can also add up to substantial savings. At Xgas, you can trust our gas safe registered engineers to carry out your underfloor heating installation.

How does underfloor heating work?

There are two main types of underfloor heating, wet and electric systems. Water-based underfloor heating involves pipework connected to your home boiler and fitted beneath flooring. Heated to the correct temperature by your boiler the warm water in the pipes, heats floor finishes and the rooms above them. Connected to the mains supply, electric underfloor heating uses pre-wired mats or loose-wire heating cable deployed below floor coverings to create the same impact. Underfloor heating installations always require a certified engineer to connect equipment to the boiler and mains supply.

Benefits of underfloor heating

Underfloor heating can be installed in any room of the house and can work with a wide range of floor coverings. While tiling and natural stone offer higher levels of heat conductivity, underfloor heating also works with carpet and engineered wood.

As mentioned above, underfloor heating is more energy efficient to run than central heating. As a result, it can improve a home’s energy efficiency rating, decrease the amount of carbon emissions it produces and save money for households on annual utility bills.

Underfloor heating also creates more space in rooms of the house as all equipment is hidden from sight and provides a luxury feel to chillier flooring based in bathrooms and kitchens.
