Underfloor Heating Specialists

At DuraGas, we are passionate about leading the way for underfloor heating installers in Leeds. Our professional service is flexible, and always delivered with a smile!

Underfloor heating utilises radiation to spread heat, making your home consistently toasty throughout, and eliminating cold spots from traditional wall-mounted radiators. There really is no better feeling than coming back to a warm and cosy home in the winter!

When implementing a water based wet underfloor heating system a network of pipes is installed underneath the floor, so warm water can be circulated around your home effortlessly. Water is pumped from your heat source (usually a hot water cylinder or boiler) to the pipes, which heat the water that radiates up through the floor.

Underfloor heading can be monitored by specialist thermostat systems, which keep the temperature consistent across the space. Each household room with underfloor heating requires its own thermostat, to control when the underfloor heating system is engaged, and of course what temperature you want it to be.

Underfloor Heating Servicing

Underfloor heating is generally not demanding in terms of maintenance, and errors or emergency fixes are rare! That being said, we very much recommend that any underfloor heating owners get their heating system serviced annually, to maintain efficiency and identify any potential problems before they become more significant and expensive to repair. All of our skilled underfloor heating installers near you are fully trained to perform these yearly check-ups, and make sure your underfloor heating runs smoothly.

Common issues that occur in underfloor heating systems include wiring problems, trapped air, pipe blockages, malfunctioning pumps or misreported flow rates that in turn affect heating performance. If left untreated, these issues can snowball into a malfunction – resulting in you spending more money on your energy bill for nothing!

Because of the longevity of underfloor heating systems product warranties can be guaranteed for up to 50 years! However, that warranty is almost always subject to the condition of annual servicing – so let us help you, just get in touch with your local underfloor heating specialists in Leeds, and don’t miss out on what is practically a lifetime of heating security.

Installation and Costs

Underfloor heating is a worthwhile investment for any home, with installs being holistically cheaper in a new build when compared to renovating an existing space! However, finding quality underfloor heating installation near you should never be hard work. Start the process today with DuraGas.

On average, water based heating systems generally cost £120 – £135 per metre squared in a new build and £135 – £185 per metre squared in a renovation property. The estimated price for a water installation is closer to £1,200, but could cost anywhere from £500 to £8,000 depending on your home. They are however cheap to run in the long term!

The overall cost of underfloor heating is also dependent on more general factors, like the size of your home and how old it is, and whether there are extra labouring costs such as insulating your floor, which is important for wet underfloor heating systems to work efficiently.

This is contingent upon how big the room is, and how easy it is to access underneath the floor where the installation will take place.

FAQ

Wet underfloor heating systems are more expensive to install, but are cheaper to run and extremely efficient. They also add more value to a property, as they are more versatile and long-lasting. Conversely, electric underfloor heating draws directly from the National grid and is not very efficient, potentially ending up with a bill four times more expensive than their water-based counterparts. To illustrate, if we were heating a massive 30m by 30m room for a year, with wet underfloor heating that would cost £239, whereas the dry underfloor heating would cost around £1,150.

Due to the running costs, electric underfloor heating should be activated a short time before you use the relevant room. However, it is recommended to leave hydroponic underfloor heating on continuously during the winter because underfloor heating needs time to warm up. Turning it off and on can be a huge waste of energy. Instead, we advise on installing thermostats in each of the rooms, allowing you to set each temperature as you wish.

We can’t say that electrical systems are ecologically friendly, as they use large amounts of electricity directly from the grid – but wet underfloor heating systems will certainly reduce energy consumption! They are around 25% more efficient than traditional radiators, buoyed up to a massive 40% more efficiency when paired with an air source heating.

We strongly advise on getting in touch with us, but if you notice water leaking and are DIY-savvy, it is possible to flush an underfloor heating system on your own. You will need to locate your manifold and a mains water feed, which attaches the feed to the top manifold and lets it flow through and out of the drain valve. As each loop of the system is its own circuit, you will need to repeat this process and do each one by one, until they are all empty of fluid.
