Does underfloor heating work the same way as a radiator?

Radiators rely on air circulation to enable the hot air to move around the room. This is called thermal currents and involves the hot air moving from the radiator to the ceiling, cooling and falling to create an air cycle. This can leave colder areas and takes time to heat the room.

An underfloor heating system heats the room by hot air rising from the floor surface upwards. This uses considerably less energy and also creates a more even dispersion of heat with the occupied space within a room kept at the desired temperature.
