Under Floor Heating
London and Kent Construction Ltd use a team of professional contractors who specialise in underfloor heating. The benefits of underfloor heating are that it doesn’t take up any wall space, it produces no noise so it’s silent to run and it is also maintenance free. There are different types of underfloor heating systems available for specific types of floors such as Laminate Floor, Carpets and Vinyl flooring and for Tile/Stone floors. Although there are many factors involved when it comes to installing Electrical Underfloor heating, this is where the expertise of our team here at London and Kent Construction can help.
There are two main types of underfloor heating systems that are commonly used:
Wet systems operate by circulating warm water through a series of pipes installed underneath the floor itself. It can be installed to run alongside your current central heating system. Wet systems cans also be used to cool the room in a more effective way than a traditional air conditioning unit. Although, depending on the property, the floor may need to be raised to allow room for pipework.
Electric systems operate by having electric wires or sheets installed within or beneath your existing flooring and then connected up to your electric mains supply. Unlike the ‘wet systems’, Electric underfloor heating can be easily fitted underneath a floor covering which makes them more suitable for people who do not want the hassle of installing a full underfloor heating system.
