Sometimes known as hydronic underfloor heating systems, they are a popular choice for new build properties. They use water which is connected to a boiler, or condensing boiler, via a manifold. It then circulates the warm water through a series of pipes to heat the space. This means they are suitable for old and new heating technologies which includes air source heat pumps and solar power. Because the heat gets distributed in an even manner, it’s more energy efficient than standard radiators. This means that costs can be significantly lower than other dry systems. Therefore, you should expect to pay less on you electricity bills.

The subfloor type and finished flooring type you use will decide which system you will need. Wet ufh systems are usually used with stone or tiled floors but can also be used with carpet. If you are using carpet, make sure that the underlay isn’t too dense as it can restrict the heats movement.
