The cost of underfloor heating installation can vary depending on how the underfloor heating system has to be installed.
There are a lot of factors that go into the cost as a whole, of course, such as:
Our heating engineers in Edinburgh can provide a free estimate of the total costs. This will go into every part of the process – for example, installing a new boiler, service on existing pipes, and adjustment of existing radiators.
Underfloor heating is a simple system at its heart. There are multiple variations in the design, but the installation and operation of most underfloor heating types are the same.
UFH installers create a system where heat is moved beneath the flooring of some rooms, which naturally begins to flow upwards and warm the space from below.
This heat rises up, meaning that it can heat the rest of the house more effectively than normal radiators.

There are two main types of underfloor heating service: hydronic and electric. Our expert installers can handle both, but the option you choose for your property depends on your needs and preferences.
Wet underfloor heating, or water UFH, is a water-based heat system. Warm water – moved by a heat pump through pipes in the floor – warms up the flooring above it. These are often handled by plumbers since they require water pipe installation to function.
Electric underfloor heating, or dry UFH, replaces the water pipes with electrical wiring. This uses electricity to heat floors, removing the need for water completely.
Neither of these two types of underfloor heating service is better than the other, but they have distinct differences.
Water heating requires a boiler and expensive pipe-laying work but can be cheaper and easier to run in the long term. It also takes longer to install but works better for larger spaces or multiple rooms.
Electrical options are cheaper and easier to install but can cost more to run overall and are better at targeting a single room at a time.
Insulating the flooring can help to increase energy efficiency, trapping the temperature and allowing the underfloor heating to work at a more efficient level.
Having insulated materials on top of your UFH allows you to get more efficient heating, reduce energy costs, and retain heating longer after the system is turned off.
This makes it a vital part of the entire installation and something we can offer to all of our clients.
We can also offer a screening service, priced for maximum value for our clients.
Screeding involves applying a new base to floors placed on top of an existing subfloor. This can help retain heat when combined with a UFH system but has other benefits, including a flatter surface and a lack of gaps in floors.
Screeding can trap warmth more effectively and provides greater protection from damage or warmth leaks, something that can make a big difference to any property. Screeding not only makes your floors more insulated, but it can keep them more stable and even enable more effective UFH installation
Fast-drying screeds are much quicker at setting, making it a great choice for a short-notice registered installer or a job that needs to be completed urgently.
Flowing liquid screed is often twice as effective at conducting warmth and can also provide very effective insulated spaces. It also grants more strength to the finished surfaces without needing quite as much material.

There are many benefits to underfloor heating, including lower heating bills and low maintenance.
Our professional team can make the process of installing an underfloor heating system much easier. Having experts working on the project can make the installation far smoother and simpler at every stage.
A good underfloor heating system provides far more open space and greater design freedom since the room contains no exposed water or electric systems for heating.
A good underfloor heating installation – like the ones we offer – can also work with all surfaces and coverings.
Our heating systems are designed to be safe. Every underfloor heating system is easy to run, provides a comfortable level of floor heating without major risks, and does not use any sharp edges or components that could cause harm if something goes wrong.
The increased energy efficiency of our underfloor heating installation work can have multiple benefits, from increasing heating effectiveness to reduced heating system bills.
While installation might cost a bit of money upfront, the money saved from reduced running costs can make our heat options much cheaper overall. Even then, we can try to reduce the installation costs to fit your budget where possible.
A new heating system does not need a repair job often, saving plenty of stress and money in the long term. We keep each installation service as high-quality as possible to reduce the chance of future wear and tear.
Most projects take around a day or two to complete, which is speedy for heating installations.
However, some larger projects may take a bit longer to be completed.
Our advisors can provide you with a more accurate time scale, once they have been provided with details of the project.
We get asked many questions about Underfloor Heating some of which are listed below:
Underfloor heating can last around 50 years if maintained properly. This is five times the lifespan of standard radiators.
Concrete is the ideal material for installing a UFH system. It retains warmth and heats up quickly, making the system more effective.
Electricians need to install the core circuits of UFH systems.
Plumbers are needed for water-based underfloor heating.
UFH can be installed under the carpet without issues.
Underfloor heating can be installed under laminate, but a maximum temperature of 27C is recommended to avoid damage.
