Tile and natural stone floors with underfloor heating
Tile and natural stone floors work perfectly with underfloor heating as they are natural conductors. One thing to remember with these floor finishes is the thicker they are, the longer the warm up and cool down times will be. If you want rapid heat up and cool down times, it’s best to avoid very thick natural stone.
Nowadays there are manufacturers and suppliers who make tiles with a wood effect. This gives you all the benefits of using a conductor with underfloor heating and the visual effect of wood. If your considering underfloor heating with tiles as your floor covering then our Rapid Response ® system is the perfect choice.

Underfloor heating energy efficiency
Radiator systems are the 20th century equivalent of a fireplace. They need your boiler or heat pump to supply hot water temperatures (60-80 degrees) so that they can emit heat into the room.
Water based Underfloor heating works differently, it is like having a huge radiator spread out beneath your floor. Underfloor heating can cover the entire floor space allowing it to use much lower water temperatures (35-45 degrees). Making it the energy efficient and sustainable system of choice.
