The Costa del Sol enjoys some of the most beautiful weather of anywhere in the world – but that doesn’t mean that it never gets cold. You won’t find freezing temperatures here but it can still get damp and chilly over the winter.
Part of the issue is that most of the properties here are not as well insulated or equipped with heating as those further north. This leads to owners staying warm by using wall-mounted or ducted air condition systems – or even open fires.
We specialise in underfloor heating
The ProMas team has recently fitted a number of underfloor heating systems because with radiant heat, comfort and warmth tends to be felt sooner and at a lower temperature. There is minimal air flow which keeps the temperature comfortable and even, everywhere in the room.
If this is something that you are interested in having installed, we have years of experience, and we would be happy to carry it out for you.
How does underfloor heating work?
Underfloor heating works by producing radiant heat which is evenly distributed from the floor and warms the room from the ground up. There are two types of systems available: electric and warm water-based systems.
The electric system uses electricity to heat a very thin wire. The water system works by connecting pipes laid under the floor to a central system and on to a heating system fitted to a thermostat, so that you can regulate the temperature.
Is underfloor heating right for your home?
The suitability of each system depends on your project and preference. The electric system may be more suited to smaller areas such as bathrooms and renovations as it does not raise floor levels. Wet systems however are ideal for large areas, new builds or total reforms as in the photos shown here because they are fitted into the structure of the sub-floor.
Is underfloor heating cost-effective?
There is no doubt that underfloor heating can be a brilliantly cost-effective solution. The running costs are linked to energy prices, room surface area and height, and running time. It is also advisable to install the system with sufficient insulation which reduces the heat-up time by pushing the heat to the floor level and preventing heat loss to the sub-flooring.
So, if you are interested in making your property on the Costa del Sol a little cosier for when the temperature drops, underfloor heating could make a great choice.
