Underfloor Heating

We strive to create the best floor heating systems, for both new and older homes.

So what is underfloor heating?

Underfloor heating turns your whole floor into a radiator, the large surface area doesn’t require a high temperature to warm the room, therefore using less energy with a fast heat up time and comfortable heat, underfloor heating is the modern solution to any home.

Our systems

We offer a range of Wundatherm heating boards to suit almost any floor finish with rapid heat up and cool down times as well as traditional Screed and joist system.

Why choose Wunda's underfloor heating?

For every project

We’ve developed a range of high performance systems, suitable for old and new properties that will work with any heat source.

Leak proof

No joins under the floor and 100% leak proof pipe.

Quality at a low price

System costs competitive with radiator systems

Cheap to run

Save money and the planet! Costs 30% less than radiators and 65% less than electric floor heating to run.

Rapid heat up time

Wundatherm heats up and cools down in minutes.

Compatible with all boilers

Compatible with any heat source, including future heat pumps.

Radiators / Underfloor Heating comparison

Underfloor heating gives the same heat output as radiators while using much lower temperatures which means running costs are reduced, in the long run underfloor heating is cheaper than radiators as your whole floor becomes your heat source and since Wundatherm replaces your radiators you can free up space in your home and reduce the amount of drafts that radiators cause.

Radiators

 

Produce hot ceilings and cold floors because heat rises up where it pools until it’s forced down by air circulation…

Underfloor heating

 

Comfortable heating rises up naturally from the floor, warming everyone & everything from your feet up.

Wunda underfloor heating is for every project

Whether your planning on a new build or renovation Wunda offers a modern solution to any build, from warm kitchen tiles to heated laminate flooring we’ve got you covered

Underfloor heating for new builds

The most effective time to incorporate a wet underfloor heating system into a project is at the new build stage, water based systems are quick, simple and hassle free, adding the system at the new build stage is far simpler than a refurbishment project as a new build has better heat output and installing necessary components are made easy.


Suggested systems:

Wundatherm Screed

Underfloor heating for renovations

Older properties can benefit from underfloor heating, thanks to our Wundatherm over floor system that offers higher heat outputs, our low profile systems are ideal for older properties, where underfloor heating would not previously have been an option.


Suggested systems:

Wundatherm

Underfloor heating for extensions

Older properties can benefit from underfloor heating, thanks to our Wundatherm solutions that offer higher heat outputs, our low profile systems are ideal for older properties, where underfloor heating would not previously have been an option.

Add warmth to your new home extension without radiators using up valuable wall and floor space using our Wundatherm over floor system which keeps the cold outdoors ensuring a warm and cosy living space.

Save money and the planet!

Underfloor heating runs at a much lower temperature than radiators. It only needs water at 35-45°C, saving you money on your utility bills.

Not at all! Wunda’s floor heating systems have been developed with the confident DIYer in mind, being able to lay the pipe and panels, leaving final commissioning to the professionals. If you’re extending or renovating, even simpler would be to make use of the builders already on-site and get them to install it for you.

Floor heating and radiators happily work in conjunction with one another, to achieve this you will need to ‘T’ off from your boiler primaries, so one set of flow and return will go towards your radiators and the other to your floor heating system. Any competent plumber can easily do this work for you.

Electric has much higher running costs in comparison to water based systems making it suitable for smaller areas such as en suites but not for larger living areas and whole homes. For open plan kitchen and family areas, water based systems are more economic costing up to 65% less to run than electric.

Most floor finishes can be used with floor heating, Wunda developed Wundatherm® Rapid Response, high density boards to support heavier floor finishes such as marble and stone tiles. These boards are independently approved by leading tile adhesive manufacturers to be laid directly on top without the need for an intermediary layer that other, less dense, boards may require, this helps to reduce system cost, build up height and lower install time.

If you’re opting for a wood floor be sure to install a floor probe to protect the integrity of the wood from fluctuating temperatures and do check with your flooring supplier as some products such as Beech wood may not be compatible.

No, most users of floor heating install on the ground floor and combine the system with radiators upstairs – but you can install throughout the whole house if you wish.

One of the best things about floor heating besides the unparalleled comfort, is that a well designed system doesn’t require regular maintenance, it just works!

Have your installer insert an inhibitor and there’s no need to bleed the system, because with auto balancing actuators the system control centre maintains itself, ensuring fast and even heat throughout your floor.

Absolutely, water based floor heating runs at lower temperatures, normally 35°C – 55°C, which is about half of what radiators run at. Water based floor heating is future proof and can be run from any heat source including heat pumps.

Warm water is pumped from the heat source to the manifold. If the floor heating requires warm water, the thermostatic valve will open allowing heated water into the manifold. From the manifold, heated water is pumped around the floor heating pipes, returning to the manifold and then either released back to the boiler/heat source via the boiler return valve for re-heating or blended back into the floor loop via a one-way valve. When all rooms reach desired temperatures, the room thermostats will signal to the actuators and pump to shut down, this in turn stops heated water circulating through the floor.
