As with any extension to a heating system the first thing to discover is whether the current heat source is large enough and how to route any flow and return pipe work…

Our love affair with underfloor heating
Ease of installation, low running and maintenance costs, compatibility with renewable energy sources and its 'invisible' nature have all contributed to the UK's growing love affair with underfloor heating (UFH).

Heat pumps and controls with Continental Underfloor heating
The number of heat pump installations in the UK has increased dramatically in recent years; when correctly sized and installed with a properly designed heat emitter they deliver savings in two key areas compared with a conventional heating system. Firstly in the quantity of carbon used per kW of heat output to a building, and secondly by achieving a marked reduction in running costs compared with conventional boiler driven heating systems.

Underfloor Heating in Existing Buildings
When installing underfloor heating in a new build, it's usually fitted in a screed that is being laid anyway, making it the most common and easiest method. However, when it comes to installing in an older building, there are more underfloor heating methods to choose from.
Saving Money on Your Heating
At Continental Underfloor Heating, we are passionate about creating the ultimate underfloor heating systems bespoke to our valued customer' specifications. With ever-increasing bills and with winter on the way it can be to assess just how to minimise the spending that is synonymous with the encroaching cooler weather.
SlimFix™ is a single composite panel that makes it a doddle to install underfloor heating in any property.

For renovations the low height (25mm) and dry installation means it is simple to add underfloor heating wherever you want: over an existing screed floor, over an existing joisted floor, or as a new floating floor.

You’ve probably heard the term ‘night set back’ chucked around. But if you’re anything like most folk then you may be in the dark as to what it actually means. Well, unhelpfully its meaning doesn’t immediately jump out at you, and it sounds a bit more technical than it actually is.
