What is Underfloor Heating?
Underfloor heating may be understood as a large radiator which is easily controlled and transfers heat to the floor space within a room to provide continual, efficient and comfortable heating.
What does it look like?
Your floor will look no different. However, tile, hardwood, slate or marble are now serious flooring options, as floor heating will keep them warm.
What is life like with UnderFloor Heating?
The floors are warm, so you'll spend less time looking for your slippers and more time on the floor with the kids, or your paper.
Furniture arrangements can be as free and creative as you like, as there are no radiators or grills to work around... It's all in the floors
Allergy sufferers breath easier with floor heating systems as dust and air borne allergies aren't circulating about the house through convection.
Continuous personal temperature adjustments made with wollens and blankets are no longer necessary ... the heat in your home is even.
What is the difference between UnderFloor Heating and radiators?
Most heat systems are convective systems because they use air as the primary heat-transfer medium.
Typically, heating outlets are placed on outside walls and the system is designed to fill the area with warm air until the preset temperature on the thermostat is reached.
With UnderFloor Heating, the heat is not at the ceiling, but where you are. A system like our underfloor heating warms objects directly, people and furnishings alike, to a comfortable temperature.
What explains the effective and efficient heat of the underfloor system?
With Radiators, air stratification and heat loss to the ceiling is significant. When super-heated air from a radiator flows against relatively cold exterior walls, the increased temperature differential results in a stack effect that draws cold air into the house through any cracks.
With Underfloor heating systems, air-infiltration heat loss is reduced, as air is only warmed to the temperature of the thermostat setting (which is usually lower to start with).
A UnderFloor Heating System warns objects directly, like people and furnishings, to a comfortable temperature.
The temperature differential at the outside wall is less, thereby reducing air infiltration. The heating system operates at the lowest possible water temperature to heat the structure.
What about controls?
State-of-the-art thermostats let you determine what areas of the home are heated and when. You can have the master bathroom warm at 6a.m. weekday mornings, but at 9a.m. on the weekends. UnderFloor Heating allows for individually customised room temperature levels, different temperatures in different rooms.
What about Maintenance?
Trained service people are readily available. Components require minimal maintenance ( no ducts to clean, no filters to change, no fan belts to replace). Hot water heating components generally require little or no maintenance.
What about the future ... expanding the home?
Most hydraulic heating systems can easily be extended to accommodate minor additions by adding an additional loop or pipe.
