Do and Don’ of Hydrosupply Floor Heating

With Hydronic underfloor heating always:

  • Make sure there is a lifetime warranty. Whether it is water or electrical heating the system should work for the life of the house.
  • Before anything, look at the type of flooring you have, or intend to have. Underfloor heating is suitable with almost any surface, but some are more suitable than others.
  • Look at underfloor heating DIY kits. These are custom designed and include all the Hydronic controls and valves needed for your particular home situation.
  • Consider Solar hydronic heating, which will be a huge saving in the long term.
  • Give preference to a wet back boiler, which expose more water to the heating surface, subsequently proving more efficient.
  • Check the level of technical support. It is good to know that expertise and Hydronic supplies are there in the unlikely event of an emergency.
  • Consider whether you want an advanced system that automatically adjusts to your lifestyle the seasonal conditions or just some controls for basic heating.
  • Always get advice and an estimate beforehand.



  • Never Compromise on quality, or make the mistake of thinking you can add more in the future. Underfloor heating is a permanent part of the house – install the system you will be wanting to use for decades ahead.
  • Never exceed 27 degrees calcium on the Underfloor heating thermostat. This should be more than worm enough.
