Do you like the look of concrete flooring but concerned about a cold house in winter? Fortunately, there’s no need to tolerate concrete floors that are uncomfortably cold underfoot ever again, as solutions are available, including a variety of underfloor heating solutions like in-slab, in-screed and thin floor heating, all of which we offer at Comfort Heat in Warriewood, Sydney for new and existing homes.
Concrete Flooring — Attractive and Aesthetically Appealing but Cold
Concrete flooring delivers fantastic aesthetics, making it a popular choice in contemporary and modern homes, and while it’s great in summer and keeps interior spaces cool and comfortable, it can be very cold and unpleasant in winter. Concrete floors aren’t only cold underfoot — without adequate heating, they make the entire space cold.
So, what heating solutions are available to homeowners? There are many ways to make concrete floors and interior spaces more comfortable, including covering floors with thick rugs and mats, installing a heating system or using portable heaters, but none of these options can match radiant floor heating in terms of efficiency, effectiveness or aesthetics.
What Is Underfloor Heating ?
Under floor heating, either electric or hydronic, is a simple and straightforward heating solution that enables homeowners (and business owners) to enjoy the aesthetic and functional benefits that concrete flooring provides without having to endure cold floors and interior spaces in winter.
Concrete flooring typically has an slab underfloor floor heating system installed. This is a popular option for large floor areas and uses a network of hydronic pipes which circulate hot water (hydronic floor heating) or electrical elements (electric floor heating) that are installed in the concrete slab when it’s poured.
