Following on from some extensive consumer research we realised that there are lots of myths surrounding underfloor heating, so we set out to dispel them. The idea behind our experiential campaign was to give people first-hand experience of all the great things Polypipe Underfloor Heating would bring to their home. It worked a treat.

During the experiment we learnt what our customers truly thought about underfloor heating and we were able to show them the benefits of having underfloor heating in their homes. People were surprised to find that you don't have to dig up your floors, the running costs are less than radiators and it's quick to fit. What's more, you can carry on using your existing boiler.

SEPARATE FACT FROM FICTION

_______

Of course we're going to say that underfloor heating is the best way to heat your home - but as mentioned above, we are aware of some preconceptions which might make you think otherwise. Give us two minutes and we'll separate the facts from the fiction, read on below or watch our true or false video above.

DOES IT GET TOO HOT
UNDER YOUR FEET?

No - unlike radiators which need to reach temperatures of up to seventy degrees to heat the room, underfloor heating runs on a much lower temperature. As underfloor heating is distributed across wider surface areas, it is able to evenly heat the room to an ambient temperature, whilst feeling pleasantly warm to the touch.

IS IT SAFE FOR MY
CHILDREN OR PETS?

Definitely! As the floor temperature never rises above your body heat, it's perfectly safe for both children and pets. And, unlike with radiators, you won't have to worry about your children scalding themselves or having any nasty bumps on exposed metal.

IS IT JUST FOR
TILED FLOORS?

There's a solution for every floor finish, whether it be wood, stone, tiles or carpet, just to name a few - giving you plenty of freedom to create the perfect design for your home.

YOU CAN ONLY HAVE IT
DOWNSTAIRS THOUGH, RIGHT?

Wrong! Whether you want an even heat upstairs or downstairs, in the bathroom, the kitchen, the bedroom, or any other room - Polypipe Underfloor Heating can work for you.

DON'T YOU HAVE TO HAVE
UNDERFLOOR HEATING
IN EVERY ROOM?

No - although you can have Polypipe Underfloor Heating throughout your entire home, it can also be installed in as many or as little rooms as you like. Each room comes with an individual control too, giving you the flexibility to choose your desired temperature and saving you on running costs in the process.

WON'T I HAVE TO
DIG UP MY FLOOR?

Simply put, no. At only 18mm in depth, our Overlay™ system can be put on top of your existing floor and finished off with any floor type you want - perfect if you are renovating an existing space rather than creating a new one.

WHAT HAPPENS
IF IT LEAKS?

Underfloor heating doesn't have any joints – so there are no natural places for it to leak from. Also, as the pipes are in the floor there's no chance of you drilling into them like you might with other pipes when hanging a picture on the wall.

WILL WE NEED
A NEW BOILER?

If you are installing underfloor heating into an already existing room space, your current boiler will be compatible. However, if you are creating a new extension, ask your plumber to check if your boiler will cope with the additional demand - just like you should do with radiators.

DOES IT COST MORE TO
RUN THAN RADIATORS?

No! Underfloor heating runs at a much lower temperature than radiators – meaning you won't have to use as much energy, keeping costs low. Also, as you can heat individual rooms to the temperature you desire, you won't waste energy heating empty rooms.

WHY UNDERFLOOR HEATING?

Underfloor heating is the perfect alternative to radiators as it provides even heat distribution without any clutter. So, you can say goodbye to hotspots, cold draughts and airborne dust and hello to plenty of extra space for the things that matter.
