What is Underfloor Heating?
Underfloor heating is like installing a conventional central heating setup, both in process and in price. It is akin to having a big, horizontal low-temperature radiator below the floor. The heating system could either be a ‘wet’ setup pumping warm water via pipes beneath the floor, or a ‘dry’ electric coil system installed under the floor. The heating system employs the basic heat rising principle.
The energy needed for underfloor heating could be as low as 60 percent of the energy required for conventional central heating. Underfloor heating could be based on gas, electricity, or exhaust air heat. The exhaust air method entails collecting warm air from other parts of the house, such as bathroom and kitchen, and utilizing it for heating the underfloor water supply system. Timber floors, for example, would require water at close to 40 degrees Celsius, and any heat source could be used.
Laying the pipes for the heating system and hooking them up with the manifold is easy. Competent DIYers can easily manage it by themselves, in fact. The manifold could then be linked to a heat source with the help of a qualified plumber or underfloor heating installers. Underfloor heating is typically set up in one go. This means installers would not have to wrestle with the setup for too long, which brings down the installation costs significantly.
The major underfloor heating attraction is the comfort it offers. The way both the electric and hot water pump setups heat up your space ensures not only would your feet be warm and toasty, but the heat would be consistent and more evenly distributed through the room. For instance, if the underfloor heating system is built in under a stone floor, the heat would be conserved even if the windows are open. Also, underfloor heating offers a very minimal and clean look. For instance, your bathroom would have zero additional clutter in the form of bulky radiators.
The water-based heating system is made to come good for years together. This is because there are zero moving components in the setup, which means all maintenance work takes place at the boiler level. Also, piping fault is extremely unlikely. If there is one, the industry guarantee would take care of it. The warranty would most likely come as default with the installation, lasting ten years or more.
