Architects and building designers have to constantly think of innovative ways to incorporate smart technology into their builds. Customers building new homes or renovating old structures look to prioritise sustainability while decreasing their carbon footprint. Homeowners seek energy-saving solutions as well as smarter appliances that contribute to their wellbeing.

Comfort Heat in Sydney can help architects and designers with the right home heating solution for their clients.

Why you should offer underfloor heating

Increasingly popular across Australia, radiant heat or underfloor heating meets a range of demands for thermal temperature, sustainable operating costs, health and safety among many more. When compared to more traditional methods of heating, underfloor heating delivers several benefits to homeowners.

Even, ambient heat

Underfloor heating provides homes and other buildings with an even, ambient heat that circulates warmth gently. It works by warming the surfaces, resulting in an environment that has no cold or hot zones.

Safer and healthier heat

Underfloor heating systems eliminate the typical hazards of conventional heating systems where one may accidentally burn themselves on hot radiators or get their fingers stuck in vents. Occupants also needn’t worry about forced airflows pushing around and spreading bacteria and allergens.

More energy efficient

Recommend underfloor heating to your customers for better energy efficiency. With its unique method of heating a space, underfloor heating allows people to enjoy the same thermal comfort in an environment that’s actually a few degrees cooler.

Underfloor heating systems are also designed with adaptive function, allowing digital thermostats to predict when the floor heating should be turned on; this means no energy is wasted when the room is unoccupied.

Builders, designers and architects should consider Comfort Heat’s DIY heating kits so that they can more easily offer them to their customers.
