Wet underfloor heating is a popular choice for new build properties as the pipes can be installed during construction. They use hot water which is heated from a boiler, or condensing boiler, via a manifold. It then circulates the warm water through a series of pipes to heat the space. They are often used in conjunction with air source heat pumps that redistributes hot air around the home to create an even temperature. The heat gets distributed in an even manner making it more energy efficient than standard radiators, especially when used with an air source heat pump. This means that monthly costs can be significantly lower than dry systems, such as electric underfloor heating. What’s more, if you are using an electric boiler, you could save even more on your electric bills by adding solar panels.

We supply a full range of wet underfloor heating systems and accessories. Whether you are looking for an individual component or a full kit, we keep it all in stock. We also provide a design service which will completely map out your heating system enabling you to ensure you have all the components and the correct amount of pipe to complete your installation.

If you have any questions regarding our system or our components, we offer complete product and system advice.

Should I Use a Wet System?

Depending on which type of subfloor you have, along with the type of finished flooring you have, i.e., tiles, carpet, laminate flooring, will guide you as to which system you should be using. 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 thick, otherwise it can act like insulation, trapping the heat under the carpet and the room won't get warm. Wet systems are also ideally suited to new builds as they are so much easier to install during construction. To retrofit into an existing house, you would need to pull up all the existing flooring to install, which can be expensive. Therefore, electric is much preferred when installing in an existing property.

Wet Underfloor Heating Costs

The cost of a wet underfloor heating system will vary depending on the size and number of the rooms you are heating. This will also determine the amount of pipework needed, as well as the type and size of manifold. You'll find our range of wet ufh products feature some of the best brands such as Harmoni manifolds and kits, ProWarm manifolds and Danfoss manifolds. All our products offer extensive warranties and improved efficiency and performance.

Water Underfloor Heating Kits

If you are looking to install a water system, we offer kits that contain everything you need to complete your installation. They are available for three different types of sub-floor constructions which includes screed, low profile, and joists. Purchasing a wet underfloor heating kit will save you time and money, instead of buying all the components individually. However, if you do prefer to buy the components separately or only need certain ones (for instance, you already have items from previous jobs), we do stock and supply a full range of components. This includes, manifolds, pipe, pumps, pipe connectors, zone wiring centres, actuators & motorized valves, fixings, and insulation & overlay boards

Warranties

All our components come with extended warranties; they are as follows:

Water Heating Thermostats

We keep a range of thermostats for wet underfloor heating which includes brands such as Harmoni, Heatmiser, ProWarm and Danfoss. These range from cost-effective basic manual thermostats to the latest energy-saving digital touchscreen models. We also stock Smart thermostats which incorporate cutting edge technology - ensuring total control from the initial setup. These will work with a range of heat sources.

Wet or Electric Underfloor Heating
