There are many reasons to why it is. It is seen as a better alternative to traditional central heating as it is more green. Underfloor heating systems can be connected to renewable energy source instead of running from gas or electricity.
Underfloor heating is also a better way to warm yourself up as the heat originates from the floor. Normal central heating uses radiators, and due to the fact that warm air is lighter than cold air, it rises and as a result heats the roof before it heats the people.
Celebrities also opt for underfloor underfloor heating as it is a good investment. Installing an underfloor heating system can increase the value of homes as it will soon replace radiator systems. Having underfloor heating makes houses seem more modern and can be a feature that makes a potential buyer make the decision to buy said house.

Just make sure to choose a professional to set it up. Looking at the company’s years of experience and references is a good way to decide whether you can trust them or not.
