Before we go into the myths, let’s first look into the different types of underfloor heating.
Currently, there are two types of underfloor heating systems: electrical systems and hydraulic systems, which run on hot water. The hydraulic system also comes in two different infrastructures known as a dry system and a wet system, and the difference between the two is how the pipes are set up
For water systems, the pipes are in the screed while in dry systems, the pipes are in the floorboards to serve as a heat conductor. You'll usually find the 'wet' hydraulic variant with new construction projects, while the dry version and the electrical systems are best suited for renovations.
Now that you know a little bit of the technical side of underfloor heating, it’s time to look into the misconceptions surrounding it.
