How safe is underfloor heating?

Everything you need to know before going ahead

As the experts in underfloor heating Essex property owners recommend, we’re often asked how safe it is. The answer? Very! Here is everything you need to know.

No more burns

One of the biggest benefits of having underfloor heating installed is the reduced risk of burns in your property. Radiators have to be turned up very high in the winter months to heat a room effectively, which can put children in danger. They can touch a radiator out of curiosity, or fall against it when they are playing. With underfloor heating, the entire floor is transformed into a radiator. This results in a much more even heat throughout a room, with lower temperatures required as a result. So there are no dangerous hotspots to worry about.

No injuries

Another danger of radiators is their sharp edges. Children can hurt themselves on these – and one of the only fixes is to invest in bulky, unsightly radiator covers – which in turn reduce the amount of heat in a room. This is where underfloor heating proves itself yet again. All of the parts are hidden below the floor, freeing up a huge amount of wall space in a room – and making it a space that is much safer for children to play in.

No tampering with the controls

With everything hidden away below the floor, there is no danger of any little ones in your home messing with the controls for your underfloor heating. It’s all too easy for kids to fiddle with the temperature controls on your radiator, raising the risk of what we have already mentioned above. Underfloor heating can be controlled by a thermostat that you can keep out of reach of any curious kids – leaving you totally in control.
