Installer FAQs

Is warm water UFH suitable for new build and renovations?

Yes. You can install warm water UFH in a wide range of projects, from new-builds to renovations and even single rooms. Most retrofit systems are simply lid on top of the existing floor, so there is no need to excavate. An experienced supplier will always be able to help you choose the right system for the project.

Do I need an UFH system design? Why

It’s always worthwhile seeking a supplier than can provide you with an UFH design for each project. By having a design drawn up, you and your customer can be completely confident that it will effectively heat the property. Design drawings also make the system easier to install, as you can see exactly where every component should be located, removing the need for any guesswork.

Is it east to install?

Yes, UFH is simple to install, particularly when you are working with a fully designed system as you will have detailed drawings to follow. There are just a few key components to get familiar with and a good supplier will provide you with illustrated installation and set-up instructions to make the whole process straightforward.

Do I need training

No, there is no need for any training to install UFH. However, many suppliers do offer training courses to give you a hands-on look at the systems on offer and their benefits. This can be worthwhile if you are new to UFH and would like to see how each system is installed. 

What are the benefits of UFH for my customer?

The lifestyle benefits are often the main reason for a homeowner investigating UFH in the first place. Benefits of UFH include:

  • Improved efficiency – UFH is around 25% more efficient than radiators, helping to keep heating bills low
  • It is an ‘invisible’ heating system that frees up wall space – perfect for open plan living
  • It creates a comfortable living environment – warmth rises gently from the entire floor surface to create the perfect heating profile
