Underfloor Heating

Water Under Floor heating diagramA modern way to heat your home.

Underfloor heating is becoming a popular way of heating your home. With underfloor heating there is no need for traditional radiators. Heat rises from floor to ceiling giving you a more balanced heat than standard central heating.

What is Underfloor heating?

Underfloor Heating is one of the most widely used systems for heating domestic and commercial properties. Its growing popularity can be put down to a number of key lifestyle and operational benefits such as comfort, economy, flexibility and its virtually maintenance free operation.

The system works by circulating low temperature water, normally between 35-55°C, through loops of plastic pipe work which are embedded within the floor structure. This effectively turns the whole floor area into a low surface temperature radiator. Warm water is then distributed to the pipe work laid within the floor from a manifold which is best positioned in a convenient central location such as under the stairs or in a cupboard. Underfloor Heating system can be installed into most floor types and can be used with most floor coverings.

COMFORT

The system uses radiant heat, the most comfortable form of heating, giving an even distribution of warmth over the whole room.

SPACE

The system is unobtrusive and space saving which means every square metre of floor and wall space can be utilized giving freedom of interior design.

ECONOMY

Underfloor Heating Systems are designed to operate at lower temperatures than radiator systems, making them especially suitable for heat pumps, solar and condensing boilers.

CONTROL

Unlike conventional radiator systems, Underfloor heating allows each room to control the heat source. This reduces energy usage whilst improving comfort levels within the building. Speedfit’s range of self learning thermostats help to further reduce energy usage by automatically adjusting themselves to the characteristics of the building.

SAFETY

Compared to radiators, there is no risk of injury from burns due to hot surfaces.

INSTALLATION

Underfloor Heating should be installed by a qualified engineer, advantages: Minimum maintenance.

ENVIRONMENT

Underfloor heating is suitable for use with the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly heating systems including condensing boilers, solar power and heat pumps.
