Why Consider Under Tile Heating Canberra
Under floor heating is a luxurious feature of a home, and it is especially effective on tiled floors. It is a system that provides easy heating that feels very natural. Under floor heating has been popular in many East Asia and Northern European countries for generations. It has only started to become popular in Australia over the past 10 years.
But is it worthwhile installing underfloor heating, or should we simply stick to radiators and other traditional heating methods?
Advantages of Under Tile Heating Canberra
Energy efficiency – Traditional radiators need to run at a temperature of at least 75 degrees Celsius if we want to heat the room to 25 degree Celsius. Some radiators run at a far higher temperature. This uses a fair amount of energy. By contrast, under floor heating uses a floor temperature of 28 degrees to get a room to a similar temperature. This takes significantly less energy, saving on power costs.
Even Heat, meaning no Cold Areas – A traditional radiator will heat the nearby surrounding air first, which then heats most of the room, to a greater of lesser extent. But we will end us with cold areas, often in the middle of the room. This makes the heating seem worse than is is because we will feel the heat and coldness as we move about the room.
By contrast, underfloor heating is far more even. It starts with a warm floor, with heat that rises to the ceiling.
Easy To Run – Underfloor heating requires no maintenance, it simply works in the background to give natural feeling heat. Modern underfloor heating can be controlled on Wi-Fi, which includes a timer. So it can heat the room in advance, and then automatically switch off late at night.
Will Not Effect Room Decor – There is no need to have air conditioning ducts or radiators stips on the wall, underfloor heating is invisible. This means there is literally more usable space in the room.
No safety Issues – There are no hot surfaces to burn yourself on, no air ducts that might accidentally be blocked. Instead, the floor is pleasantly warm.
Disadvantages of Under Tile Heating Canberra
Initial cost – The underfloor system will cost more than a radiator, but it is cheaper to run. And it can cost much less than installed air conditioning.
Major Renovation – It will take time to renovate a preexisting bathroom to install the underfloor heating. But a new home can have this installed as part of the initial building.
