Which heating system will work best for you, your budget and your home?
Heating your home to a pleasant and comfortable temperature during the chilly winter months is becoming more expensive.
With the energy firms hiking up prices yet again, this coming winter could mean wearing even more layers to stay warm.
But if you could invest in a new heating system, which would it be – a re-vamped radiator and central heating system or the pleasant heat given off by warm floors with underfloor heating?
The Pros and The Cons of Both Systems
Our homes are different. Our needs are different. Budgets vary. Likes and dislikes differ from one person to another too. As a result, it is fair to say that what is a pro to one person, will be a con to another.
What could be seen as a disadvantage by some, may not make much of a difference to you – such as the fact that underfloor heating takes longer to increase heat in its system than radiators and a boiler do.
What Are YOU Looking For?
Which system suits you depends on what you need from a heating system.
Do you want a heating system that is easy to control, produces a gentle heat, has minimal maintenance requirements and is cost-efficient? Take a look at underfloor heating and what pipes laid in the sub floor with constantly circulating hot water can offer you.
