With a greater efficiency compared against traditional heating methods, typically the heating from the boiler runs at a temperature of 50 degrees Celsius whereas conventional heating is run at a temperature of 65 degrees Celsius saving on the energy used. Control methods means that individual room temperatures are controlled providing control efficiency over wanted and unwanted heat.

Quite simply this is because the temperature will be consistent around the room, for example one corner will not be cooler than the other as is often the case with a radiator system which relies on Convection So, there’ll be no more vying for a spot near the radiator!

With radiators and convection heating, floors remain cold and dampness at ground level can occur. This is the perfect breeding ground for the dreaded dust mite.
