What are the Benefits of Underfloor Heating?

What are the Benefits of Underfloor Heating?

Radiant Heat

Unlike radiator-based systems, underfloor heating ensures an even dispersion of heat across your entire room, delivering a comfortable environment with no cold spots or draughts.

In general we all feel more comfortable when we are in an environment where our feet are warmer than our heads.

This is exactly the environment achieved with underfloor heating and the opposite of radiators.

Energy Efficiency

Underfloor heating is far more controllable than radiator based systems and heat is only delivered where and when it is required.

Polypipe underfloor heating also works perfectly with heat pumps as our systems operate at relatively low water temperatures, maximising the efficiency of the heat pump.


Polypipe offers a range of solutions to suit any type of home and budget, making underfloor heating accessible to everyone.

What’s more, you can easily integrate our underfloor heating systems with all existing heat sources, including renewable sources.

So whether you need underfloor heating for a new-build property, a complete house renovation, or just a single room, Polypipe can provide a seamless, adaptable underfloor heating solution for your particular needs

Design Freedom

Removing radiators from your walls gives you the freedom to design your home the way you want.

Furniture can be placed anywhere you like! No longer do you have to worry about blocking the heat output from wall-mounted radiators with your sofa or floor-length curtains.

Underfloor heating truly gives you complete design freedom.

Safe Living Environment

Radiators can reach a heat of around 80°C and often present sharp metal edges, making them a real risk to small children, elderly or infirm occupants.

Underfloor heating systems remove this risk completely from your home.
