Why choose underfloor heating?
A major advantage of underfloor heating is the low energy costs. This makes it possible to maintain a pleasant room temperature without high heating costs. The system works at a low water temperature of about 35°C. Heating at a low water temperature therefore requires much less energy than radiators or convectors, which require a higher water temperature. Heating in the floor works with radiant heat via heating pipes under the finished floor. These heating pipes are laid at a fixed distance from each other over the entire room. This system is extremely suitable for use on a heat pump. An additional advantage of this is that cooling is also possible during a warm period. Curious about even more benefits? Then read on!

The benefits of underfloor heating
Underfloor heating brings several benefits, making it a pleasant option to heat your home. For example, have you ever thought about installing underfloor heating? We have listed the most important benefits for you, so that you get a good idea of what underfloor heating can do for you!
Underfloor heating ensures even heat distribution in the room. Unlike radiators, which release heat from a single point, underfloor heating distributes heat evenly across the floor. This results in a pleasant, even temperature throughout the room, without cold spots.
No visible radiators
Because underfloor heating is built in under the floor, there are no visible radiators to take up space or disturb the interior. This gives you more freedom when decorating your home and creates a sleek, minimalist look.
Efficient energy use
Underfloor heating can be more efficient than traditional heating systems. Because the heat is evenly distributed and rises from below, the thermostat can usually be set to a lower temperature than with radiators. This can lead to energy savings and lower heating costs.
No air circulation and dust movement
Radiators heat the air, which creates air circulation and can raise dust particles. Underfloor heating, on the other hand, heats the floor and radiates heat directly upwards, without causing air circulation. This can be beneficial for people with allergies or respiratory problems, as less dust and allergens are released into the air.
Underfloor heating works quietly, unlike some other heating systems that can make noise, such as noisy radiators or fans. This contributes to a quiet and comfortable environment in the home.
More design options
Because there are no radiators in the way, you have more freedom in designing and furnishing your interior. You can place furniture more easily without having to worry about the location of radiators, which improves the layout and appearance of the room.
Future-proof and sustainable
If you want to switch to a heat pump in the future, for example, most underfloor heating systems are suitable for this and no drastic interventions need to be made. With underfloor heating, you are already investing a little in the future.
In short, underfloor heating provides comfortable warmth, energy efficiency, aesthetic benefits and better air quality, making it a pleasurable option for heating your home. Are you interested in underfloor heating? Compofloor offers two lightweight underfloor heating systems:
