4 Benefits of Under Tile Heating

by Felecia Banks

If you are considering renovating the flooring in your home, you may not have considered the benefits of installing under tile heating. This article will explain some of the benefits of opting for this type of flooring solution. Read on to find out more. 

Energy efficiency 

Under tile heating systems ensure that your home is the most energy-efficient it can be. With this system, the entire floor is warmed by the heating system as there is a large surface area for heat transfer into the atmosphere of the room. This efficient heat transfer means that underfloor heating does not need to reach the same high temperatures as a radiator. Ceramic tiles are also great at storing heat which means once the under-flooring heating has been switched on for a while, you can turn it off while still enjoying the heat as it slowly radiates out from the tiles beneath your feet. These factors help to reduce your energy bills and protect the planet.

Increased comfort

Underfloor heating can offer increased levels of comfort. Because traditional heating systems such as radiators are attached to the wall, they do not heat the surface of the floor. This can result in rooms in which the atmosphere is warm but the floor is cold. In winter this can be very unpleasant. If you install under tile heating, this problem is avoided.

Fire protection

Tradition ways of heating a home using open fires can increase the chance that a fire will break out in your home due to a spark or an object falling into the fireplace. Underfloor heating usually relies on electrical power or hot water to heat the tiles. By installing these types of systems, you can help to reduce the probability of a fire occurring in your home as you will not have to expose your home to a living flame.

Increased space

Once you have installed underfloor heating, you will be able to remove radiators and HVAC systems from the walls of your home. This can increase the amount of space available to you and can allow you to get really creative when it comes to interior design as you will no longer need to work around these items.

If you would like to find out more about the benefits of installing this type of tile in your home, you should make contact with a local company which offers heated flooring solutions.


About Me

Upgrading our curtains

We have just bought a new house, and the guy who lived here before us smoked in the house for close to 40 years. The first thing I knew we had to change as soon as we moved in was the curtains, because I can't bear the smell of stale smoke. I looked around at a few different options and settled on some beautiful cream curtains with a delicate pattern and a blackout backing so that the dawn doesn't wake me each morning. This blog explains some different stylish options for window coverings for your home, including curtains and blinds.
