Floor Types & Pipe Layouts

At Aylesbury underfloor heating our installations are extremely discreet. With nothing showing above floor level except the manifold, which is normally hidden in a cupboard, our installation does not interfere with either your living space or your décor. This leaves you free to make the most of every square foot of your floor and wall space.

It is a cost effective option. Although installation costs are generally higher than traditional heating methods, underfloor heating’s superior efficiency means that your running costs will be significantly lowered, so the ongoing savings on your energy bills quickly outweigh your higher initial outlay.

Underfloor heating is also a practical option. It can be used with most types of floors and floor coverings. It is also suitable for use with all sorts of wet central heating systems. It is easy to install and gives you a number of usage options. It can be installed throughout your house, on one level only or in individual rooms. It can be used alone or combined with radiators or other heating systems elsewhere in your home.



Screeded Floor
Solid floor underfloor heating systems have the underfloor heating pipework embedded in concrete or screed. They include concrete screeded floors and block and beam floors with a screeded finish.

Floating floors reduce the overall loading on the building, reducing the weight of the floor compared to other floor systems. Floating floors also exhibit very good acoustic properties, reducing sound transmission between floors of a building.
