We recently gave a couple electric heating system advice. They had just bought and moved into a property in a rural location near Frome in Somerset. The 3-bedroom semi-detached house was not connected to mains gas, but was heated via electric radiator heating system, with an additional wood burning stove.

Our clients were keen to look at their options for upgrading their heating system, and wanted to explore the possibility of installing underfloor heating in some areas of their home in the short term, with the possibility of investing in an air source heat pump at a later date.

We asked our clients to send us comprehensive information to enable us to understand their current position. We looked at the floor plans, the location and size of the radiators and the log burner and additional elements such as the insulation level detail for the property. Our heating system expert Rob Bohm then talked to them for an hour, and discussed the various options that they could consider.

Our recommendation was that the most suitable system for their house would be to go for underfloor heating overlay boards on the ground floor, with the manifold situated in their utility room. We suggested leaving the electric wall heaters in the bedrooms for the moment and installing an electric towel rail in the bathroom.

In the short term, the underfloor heating could be powered by a thermostatically controlled electric boiler. It is a very compact unit that also could fit with the manifold in their utility room. They would then have an efficient controllable system with good longevity, that would be suitable if they upgraded to an air source heat pump in the future.

We believe future-proofing your heating system in this way is a wise idea. It is a good way of splitting the investment required into manageable chunks without wasting money. It also helps minimise any disruption when upgrading to the future solution.

If you’re looking to update your heating or hot water system and would like some expert, independent heating system advice we can help.
