Whether it's a residential home or a commercial office building, all indoor environments need some form of heating to weather the otherwise cold winter months. When winter rolls around, indoor heating will create a comfortable environment. While central heating is always an option, underfloor heating has become a popular alternative in recent years.
Underfloor heating refers to a form of indoor heating in which electrically charged wires or pipes with heated water hidden within the floors produce heat that radiates throughout the home or building.

The most common type of underfloor heating involves electrically charged wires. Below the surface of the floors are wires that, when activated, produce heat. As electricity flows through the wires, it produces heat that rises up and through the floors to warm the home or building.
The other primary type of underfloor heating involves the use of water-filled pipes. Rather than electrically pipes wipes, this type of underfloor heating uses water-filled pipes. Heated water flows through the pipes, thereby releasing heat up and through the floors.
Some people assume underfloor heating is nothing more than heated floors, but this isn't necessarily true. Granted, it can be used to create warm, comfortable floors, but it's also used to heat entire homes and buildings. Among other things, underfloor heating is inexpensive to install, energy efficient and highly effective at producing warmth. With that said, underfloor heating is still less popular than conventional central heating systems. Statistics show that in the North America, water-based underfloor heating accounts for just 3% to 7% of all indoor heating systems. With that said, underfloor heating holds a greater share of the indoor heating market in regions such as Asia and Europe.
