Underfloor Heating is Financially Available to All

If you have ever considered having Underfloor Heating installed but always thought it too expensive and only available for the rich and famous. Or you have considered it and explored the plethora of government incentive schemes available only to find them too complex and ambiguous in their offerings, you may be better off than you think.

By looking at financing yourself by using either your own bank or using a price comparison website to get the best deal you can join the ever increasing number of people across the United Kingdom not only obtaining underfloor heating but enjoying the many benefits that come with having underfloor heating installed. In short by spreading the cost of your underfloor heating installation across the lifecycle of a personal finance plan, underfloor heating does become more obtainable to the likes of you and I.

There are a lot of reasons for considering underfloor heating most of which have comfort and aesthetical attributes. Apart from the obvious advantage of not having radiators in every room and unsightly pipework running around walls in your own home, underfloor heating can bring with it annual cost savings on gas and electric by heating your home more efficiently by distributing heat in a more efficient manner.

Underfloor heating also uses lower temperatures to heat rooms such as bathrooms and or small rooms that otherwise get heated by overpowered and expensive radiator alternatives. Furthermore rooms that have tiled floors, especially stone type tiles, will retain heat better than traditional radiators which lose their heat the minute a draft enters the room.

There are two main types of underfloor heating, these are electric and wet (water based systems). Electric type underfloor heating will require additional financial expenses such as additional insulation and electrician costs. For the Do It Yourself enthusiast in mind, wet based systems are by far the easiest to install especially if using an existing boiler based central heating system.

There are of course alternatives to these two main underfloor heating types such as ground source heating which can bring significant cost savings and further financial benefits such as increasing the sell price of your property within the market together with making it far easier to sell. By installing underfloor heating you are of course adding further efficiency from an environmentally improvement point of view which many people find reason enough for installing underfloor heating.

So when considering underfloor heating there are financial considerations that need to be taken into account. A simple calculation would be to obtain a quotation from a reputable underfloor heating provider for both the equipment and labour for installing.

You can of course obtain separate quotations from supplier of the equipment and a separate installer. However in my experience going to a supplier who can provide both services will save you money as they are more likely to do you a deal on both together. Once you have your quote, contact a property consultant such as a reputable estate agent to go through the financial impact on your property value after installing underfloor heating within your property. This calculation should then be offset against the financial cost of installing underfloor heating within your property.
