Farm houses, country cottages, Grade II listed manor houses and brand new eco homes and luxury apartments – CSC’s been lucky to have laid the screed for a rather diverse range of home projects last year. In the midst of all the diversity, a common trend that caught our eye was an increasing affinity among home owners for underfloor heating.
We saw old rickety boilers and edgy radiators give way to chique new underfloor heating systems in many a homes that were looking to save energy and add value to their property. We also laid the screed for some beautiful country homes and manor houses which were gearing up for their new underfloor heating. And we couldn’t help but notice their majestic fireplaces that seemed to look on with the quiet satisfaction of having delivered years of faithful service.
Underfloor heating does seem to be wooing Britain with some very attractive features.
To start with, underfloor heating is more energy efficient than conventional heating systems – given the sufficient energy conservation measures are adopted. Heat conducting floor screeds such as FlexiDry, which we recommend for most of our projects, further helps to reduce heat loss in transmission and increases the energy efficiency of underfloor heating by 20-30%.
And when it comes to the other important factors such as space management, aesthetics, décor and safety – underfloor heating seems to be ticking all the right boxes by doing away with the bulky radiators as well as the ominous sharp corners, hot surfaces and ‘hot heads and cold feet’ that inevitably comes with the radiators. All in all, it is not too difficult to see what is tipping the scales for home owners in favour of underfloor heating.
And we at CSC also see an emerging market, where we can bring value to our customers with our experience and expertise in achieving eco-friendly, energy efficient heated floors and provide a convenient one-stop-shop for underfloor heating and screeding.
