Heat transfer and air buoyancy are two concepts that are closely related when it comes to underfloor systems. Understanding how they work together can help you make an informed decision about installing underfloor heating in your home.

Convective heat transfer is the process by which heat energy is transferred from one point to another through the movement of a fluid, such as air, water, or steam. This type of heat transfer occurs in both natural and artificial systems. In an underfloor system, convection happens when warm air rises from the floor and is replaced with cooler air from the surrounding environment. This creates a convection cycle in which hot air is continually drawn away from the floor and replaced with cooler air, leading to a more even temperature distribution throughout the room.

Air buoyancy is another important factor when it comes to underfloor systems. It refers to how warm air rises due to its lower density compared to cold air. This means that warm air moves up through the room faster than cold air, allowing for more efficient heat distribution throughout the space. Air buoyancy also helps create a comfortable living environment by preventing hot spots near the ceiling where warm air accumulates.

The combination of convective heat transfer and air buoyancy makes an underfloor system highly efficient at providing comfortable temperatures throughout your home. By installing an underfloor system, you can reduce energy costs as well as improve indoor air quality by reducing airborne dust particles and allergens that can be trapped in carpets or other floor coverings.

Underfloor heating systems are also cost-effective compared to other types of heating solutions such as electric radiators or ducted heating systems. Depending on your energy source, you could save up to 30% on your energy bills by switching to an underfloor system!
