What do you need to know about wet underfloor heating system installations or repairs?
The first thing to know about wet underfloor heating systems is that if you are thinking of installing one in an existing property the cost will be much, much higher. The installation involves laying pipes under the flooring of a room and connecting them to your central heating system. You will need to have space for the pipes, and so you may need to have your flooring elevated to accommodate them. For these reasons, wet underfloor heating systems are usually only installed during the construction of a new house.
When seeking quotes you will have tradesmen wanting to visit and assess your property, so take this time to ask any questions you may have. A professional will be able to answer them all and provide a solid quote. Be aware that although running a wet underfloor heating system is relatively cheap, installations can cost over £2000. The cost of repairs will vary depending on the nature of the issue and the extent of the damage, but most installers will give you a long warranty as standard. Be sure to get a written confirmation of this.
Installing and repairing wet underfloor heating systems are complex jobs, so make sure you take the time to look over the qualifications and experience of each of your choices. Each of them should be able to show you previously completed jobs and customer reviews. They may be part of a national tradesmans’ organisation, which will be a good sign as such groups typically enforce high standards and codes of conduct on their members. Before making your final decision, remember to make sure that your choice is covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
