Differences between gas and electric underfloor heating

by UFH1
There are two types of underfloor heating: gas-powered (wet) underfloor heating and electric underfloor heating.  In wet underfloor heating systems, heat is distributed around the house via thin pipes laid under the floor. These pipes carry hot water around the home so that it can release its heat through the floor and therefore warm the rooms where the underfloor heating system is installed. The water is heated in the main boiler of the home. In cases where the boiler supplying hot water for the household is gas powered (as is the case in most UK households) this type of heating system is known as gas underfloor heating. An electric underfloor heating system, on the other hand, uses electric wires fitted beneath the floor to provide heat. When an electric current is passed through the wires, they become hot and that heat is transferred through the floor to the room above.

What is the average cost of underfloor heating?

by Damien Wilkinson
The cost of underfloor heating depends on the size of the installation and the individual conditions in your home. The cost of installing underfloor heating in your home depends on your answers to several questions. Do you have the necessary skills to install the system yourself, or will you require professional installation? How big is the area where the heating system will be installed? What type of system will be installed? Wet underfloor heating systems, in which hot water produced by your boiler is pumped through pipes laid beneath the floor, are often more expensive to install than dry underfloor heating systems, in which electric wires supply the heat. However, wet systems are more efficient and therefore have lower running costs.
