Under Floor Heating

Systems

underfloor heating is not a new concept

Underfloor heating is not a new concept. In the past electric heating elements were buried within floor screeds. These were heated over night using ‘cheap rate’ electricity. However, this method was expensive to run and uncontrollable and the building would over heat during the day but in the evening, when heat is generally required, no further heat was available. Utilising today’s modern multilayer pipes,  ‘zone’ control systems and high heat pumps or biomass boilers, the underfloor heating systems of today are extremely comfortable and controllable. Radiators are no longer needed so giving more room space. The heat is more evenly distributed and dust is not circulated. Underfloor heating from the whole floor area of the house gently warms the air above, eliminating cold spots. The warm air convects from the floor surface losing approximately 2 degrees centigrade at 2.0 meters above the floor, which makes the system ideal for all ceiling heights.
