What do you need to know about underfloor heating installation/repair?
Your underfloor heating system can be supplied by hot water that is produced from your heating source - i.e a boiler or heat pump - that is then pumped through pipes that sit below the floor. These can be more expensive to install than electric underfloor heating systems, which simply uses electric wires to produce heat. That being said, wet systems are more efficient and consequently cost less to run.
The cost of installing an underfloor heating system can be quite high. It is more economical to have them installed during a property's construction rather than trying to install them in an existing floor. You can save money by being selective of which rooms you install the heating systems in; many people only have them in living rooms and bedrooms.
When an underfloor heating system requires repairs, most of the time it will not have anything to do with the set-up under the floorboards, so repairs are often not too invasive. The problem is more likely to be to do with the connection to the property's utilities. Expensive installations typically come with guarantees, so check on this before looking for new tradesmen to perform repairs.
Remember to check the qualifications and experience of a tradesman before making a hire, and be sure that they are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities. They should also offer a guarantee in case their work is incorrectly done.
