Should a heat pump supplied underfloor heating system be more cost effective to operate than a gas fired system bearing in mind the large electrical consumption for the compressor?

    Hi David,

    Gas is still the most efficient way to heat your home (generally speaking). However, UFH is the perfect set up for an air source heat pump due to much lower running temperature the underfloor runs at compared to radiators.

    A gas boiler running an underfloor system would use less gas than one running the equivalent heating system to heat the same space using radiators. Hope that makes sense!
