Three reasons why underfloor heating is the best heating option for your bedroom

Choosing the right heating system for your home can make a world of a difference and is especially important in rooms meant to be a haven of comfort and relaxation, like bedrooms. However, size limitations in bedrooms mean that heat pumps are often not an option, and the rising costs of electricity make electric heaters expensive to run overnight. Undercarpet heating is the ideal solution for small and medium-sized bedrooms: it’s easy and quick to install, and it has several other benefits, which we describe below.

Healthier & Kinder To Your Home

Radiant heating can help create a healthier indoor environment. Other heating systems blow and circulate warm air around the room, but they also circulate dust, mites, and other allergens. By contrast, radiant heat doesn’t aggravate allergies and helps keep optimal humidity levels instead of drying the air.

Moreover, underfloor heating is less damaging to your home. By bringing down the overall air humidity levels, radiant heating reduces the chances of condensation forming on your bedroom windows. This is important because prolonged exposure to condensation can cause problems like water damage, mold build-up, and warped window frames.


Increased Comfort

Undercarpet heating has a reputation for being a luxurious heating solution – and in a way, it is. This is a silent heating system, so your bedroom will be free of the crackling or clicking noises made by radiators and other traditional heating systems. Moreover, radiant heat creates an even heat distribution and eliminates cold spots. And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll wake up to pleasantly warm floors every morning!

Cost-effectiveness

Heating accounts for a substantial part of your energy bills, but radiant heat systems can lower your household expenses due to their higher efficiency. Radiant heat has lower heat loss levels than radiators or electric heaters and is a cost-effective way of heating small and medium-sized bedrooms, with costs usually starting at $1.30 per day (based on a 12 sqm bedroom @ 0.26 c/kwatt/hr).
