Heating | Underfloor Heating
Underfloor Heating is now the heating system of choice for heating buildings in the UK. The system works by circulating warm water through pipes in the building’s floor. The maximum floor temperature allowed in living space is 29oC and in wet rooms 33oC giving an even & comfortable heat.
There are Underfloor heating systems available for all types of floor constructions, for both downstairs and upstairs, and you can put just about any floor covering (tiles, laminate, stone, timber, carpet*) over the underfloor heating, our technical team can advise you on appropriate floor coverings for your system.
Underfloor heating has a host of advantages over a traditional radiator system including:
•Lower running costs over traditional systems
•Even distribution of heat across the room – the gentle heat radiates up from the floor rather than from a hot radiator
•More space – your walls are completely clear so you can place your furniture where you wish.
•Very little maintenance is required – the systems are self operating, all you need to do is decide what temperature you want your rooms to be
•Individual room temperature control
•Quiet – no more noisy systems or sounds of water running through pipes in the walls
•Luxurious – Adds perceived value to your property.
•Quick drying floors
•Less air movement – lower convection currents mean that pollen and bacteria can circulate less freely, giving you improved air quality.
Underfloor heating can be added to an existing building – perhaps in a conservatory using one of our Small Area Packs, or can be included in the specification for a new build project – both for homes and for commercial buildings – there is a solution for all types of projects. Underfloor heating can also be combined with a traditional radiator system – either as an extension or with radiators on the first floor of the building.
Due to the significant growth of renewable energy systems Underfloor heating has become the prominent system of choice installed in Europe.
Underfloor Heating Heat Sources
Underfloor heating is the preferred heat source for renewable energy systems
and can be used with all other heating sources.
