When planning home improvement projects, like installing new energy-efficient heated floors, it isn’t uncommon for homeowners to worry about the choices they make. After all, home underfloor heating projects can be costly, and depending on the scale and scope, the project may involve significant financial outlay. That means it’s essential to compare several quotes before choosing a company to install your new heated floors. Whether it’s in-slab, in-screed, under-tile or under-carpet with heating, you need to make sure you the quote you choose really is the right one.
The Lowest Quote Isn’t Always the Best
Naturally, we all want the lowest price when shopping around for a quote, but as underfloor heating represents such an important investment in the functionality and comfort of your home, it’s vital to carefully compare each quote and not just go with the lowest. While you may find that the lowest quote is the best choice, you’ll first have to do your research.
Is the Company Reputable?
What’s more important than price? Quality and safety. It really is that simple. Don’t overlook the importance of getting a high-quality electric or hydronic underfloor heating system for your home, as a quality system that’s safe is important for:
- Energy-efficiency and cost-effectiveness
- Your family’s safety and peace of mind
- Your household’s energy consumption
- The value of your property
Therefore, it’s vital to have a reputable company advise you on the available solutions and your options, and supply and install your new heated floors. So, how can you select the right underfloor heating company? Start by doing your research online to find companies that offer underfloor heating solutions in your local area and be sure to read the online reviews.
While they’re not always 100% trustworthy, you’ll get a good idea of which companies have a strong reputation and which don’t. Along with their Google My Business page, also look at Trustpilot and similar review sites. And if you know anyone who’s had heated floors installed, ask them about their experience. Word-of-mouth recommendations are often the best.
Do They Listen to You?
