HOW UNDER-FLOOR HEATING WORKS
Under-floor heating is a highly efficient method of heating any house or building.
Because it uses lower temperatures, efficiency of the source - heat pump or boiler - is improved, fuel bills are reduced and the overall energy performance of your heating system is enhanced. This kind of heating works with a wide range of floor coverings including timber floors, laminate, ceramic, stone, carpets, wooden floors, etc.
Warm water from an appropriate heat source is circulated through a series of polyethylene pipes installed and integrated within the floor make-up. This pipework is connected to a centrally located distribution manifold. Rooms can be individually temperature-controlled with separate thermostats if required.
Modern building methods and much improved insulation standards make under-floor heating the ideal combination with heat pumps which deliver lower temperatures. Each room stat can be set up to 2oC lower than a room heated by radiators. This is because under-floor heating provides an even temperature throughout the room from the ground up, unlike radiators that send heat to the top of a room.
Under-floor heating eliminates uncomfortable hot or cold air flows around a room and gives even, comfortable heating. The warmest part of the room is then next to the floor - not the ceiling! The level of comfort obtained with this form of heating is greater as the whole floor becomes the heat source, radiating warmth from the floor upwards.
All Renewable Energy offers a complete service for custom-made installations including the design, delivery, management and installation of the complete system. Our products have a clean and simple design with components which, unlike bulky radiators are virtually hidden away on your walls and systems come with a long-term guarantee.
Under-floor heating is one of the best choices you can make, any time or as part your new-build or home improvement project.
BENEFITS OF UNDER-FLOOR HEATING
Costs Less to Buy: Installing in a new-build property with a screeded floor, under-floor heating is cheaper than a radiator system.
Costs Less to Run: On average, anywhere between 15% - 40% less than a conventional radiator system.
Space Saving: Your interior design scheme can utilise all of the room without having to work around unsightly radiators.
Improved Comfort: A much cosier environment can be achieved with heat all around and no cold spots, unlike a radiator system where the heat rises to make the ceiling the warmest part of your room.
Better Hygiene: Under-floor heating helps to reduce house dust-mites as the moisture content is too low for them to survive - so asthma sufferers can benefit from the improved living environment.
Flexible Control: Systems can be programmed and operated by a series of digital thermostats allowing individual temperature settings for each room. Monitoring & adjustment from a remote location is now possible by internet connection or "smart" 'phone app.
Easier Maintenance: Without the joints in the floor that would be required by a radiator system, pipes and cables return to the manifold with the connections located all in this one place.
Warm Floors: A nice warm floor allows you to install practical, resilient floor coverings such as ceramics or stone if you wish, without the surface being cold.
