What is Underfloor Heating?
Underfloor heating (UFH) uses warm heating water running through pipework under the floor, the warmth then radiates and convects from the floor into the room – heating the room from the floor up. This works more efficiently and gives greater comfort than traditional heating radiators which tend to heat the room from the ceiling down.
Underfloor heating tends to require lower water temperatures than radiator systems and so is particularly well suited to work with heat pumps which are more efficient at lower temperatures. With high temperature heat sources such as biomass, gas or oil boilers the heating fluid normally has to be mixed down in temperature.
There are many different types of underfloor system to cover all floor constructions including:
- clipped pipe in screed
- plastic / polystyrene over-lays
- MDF overlays
- structural chipboard systems for suspended floors
- spreader plates.
This allows installation of UFH in all types building. eg new build, retrofits and commercial. Our solutions frequently involve a mix of underfloor heating and traditional radiator systems (new and existing).
We have experience in most types of UFH systems, are able to advise and design the best solutions to meet your needs and will specify product from 2-3 quality suppliers who we know and trust.

Why use Underfloor Heating?
- Heats from the floor up – creating a comfortable and constant temperature between the floor and ceiling (great if you suffer from cold feet!)
- Runs at a lower temperature and therefore potentially more efficiently than radiators (particularly with heat pumps) dependent on the design.
- Flexibility of room layout – wall space not taken up by radiators

Air source heat pump replacing costly oil fired boiler. Best purchase ever. Saving over £2,000 pa on oil and £26 per month on boiler maintenance. Electricity bill only gone up by £1,000. Home is much warmer throughout the day, which is ideal now my wife and I are retired and spend a lot more time at home during the day. Found the company to be very professional, helpful and knowledgeable at all times without being pushy. We were dealt with by Mark Roper and all times we found that he had our best interest at heart.
We would highly recommend Mark and the team, who were very professional, helpful and knowledgeable and skilfully managed our project at every stage. We would definitely work with them again in the future.
We were keen to install a more sustainable heating system and to benefit from government grants, but were concerned at the number of ‘cowboys’ operating in the sector. We were delighted the willingness of Trusted Energy Solutions to listen to what we needed rather than trying to sell us what was convenient to them. They were very supportive during the somewhat eccentric grant process, and considerate and tidy during the installation process. In summary, we are now warm, and get quarterly cheques from the government for the privilege - what is there not to like?
All the staff at Trusted Energy Solutions have worked hard to help deliver my biomass boiler on time and to suit our needs. They have made the installation smooth and have been helpful and understanding talking me through the process of RHI registration and submitting readings.
We were looking for an alternative to our oil fired heating, which was getting very costly to run, but were unaware as to what the alternatives were. That was until we were referred to Mark Roper who explained everything in detail without any sales pressure at all. We felt we could trust his advice and went ahead with a pv panel installation and a heat source pump for our central heating. Our fuel costs are now much lower and any sign of an oil fired installation has gone! From start to finish the installers were very professional and clearly skilled at what they did. We would have no hesitation at recommending Mark and his company to any interested clients.
Everything went well and apart from Winston the pig getting a bit stressed due to having strangers watching him eat, the disruption was kept to a minimum. The whole installation was completed in a very professional way and the guys were great.
Highly satisfied with the way the installation was conducted and managed; everything went smoothly and the process was made very easy for us by the team. Would definitely recommend Trusted Energy to anyone looking for any products in the future!
I am very pleased with the highly efficient and prompt service I received from the engineers at Trusted Energy; they were thoroughly professional and knowledgeable - Thank you!
We are very pleased with your upgrades to our heating system for our extension. We couldn't have asked for more - your team has excelled themselves.
Huge thanks to you, Mark and the whole team for such a wonderful job - great expertise and support!
