Underfloor heating Vs Radiators by Rubina Ratnakar

Radiators have been used for a long time for keeping the interiors warm in the houses. Almost all houses in cold countries invest in good-quality radiators to combat the cold. Underfloor heating is one of the new trends that have become very popular these days. They are installed under the floor and do not take a specific place like a radiator. In this blog, Rubina Ratnakar tries to compare the two and bring the superior and convenient one between underfloor heating and radiators.

Underfloor heating and radiators do not need to be necessarily compared. You can also use both of them in your house. For example, if you don’t want to sell off your pre-existing radiators and want to add the underfloor heating system, you should use them in combination. If you are planning about extending your house, you can place the radiators where they are and use the heating system in the new extension of your house. It is not necessary to spend a whole lot of money at once on changing the heating system. Make the changes where they are required.

If we talk about the energy required to run both of them, the underfloor heating system requires much lesser energy as compared to the conventional radiators. As the UHS is a new update, it is made with the principle of less input and more output.

Talking about the effect and impact of the heating system, an underfloor heating system is spread on the whole floor whereas a radiator sits in just one corner only. The radiator will have to do a lot of work in order to heat the entire room.

If we compare both these options on the basis of cost, an underfloor heating system is costlier than the radiators. It will definitely be a better and efficient choice but if your budget is your major concern you may need to think again.

Underfloor heating will not affect your interior design at all, whereas you may need to hide your radiators to not interfere with the interior design.
