Underfloor Heating Addlestone Surrey (KT15): An efficient and economical way to warm your home in Addlestone, is to install underfloor heating. You can use underfloor heating to take the place of traditional heating techniques, like radiators, or use it to complement your existing heating to minimise cold spots around your home. Underfloor heating is available as two primary types: electric or water systems.
Whatever installation you choose for your home in Addlestone, wet or electric, you will introduce uniform heating from the floor upwards which is effective and efficient. Underfloor heating consumes less energy than a traditional radiator because it does not need to run at such a high temperature. To heat a room effectively a conventional gas boiler and radiator setup will demand water temperatures of between 65 and 75 degrees C, which is more than two times that of the twenty five to thirty five degrees required by an underfloor heating setup.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Uniform & Consistent Heat: Cool areas can result with conventional radiators, as the air close to the radiator's surface is heated first, before slowly spreading around the room through convection. The floor level heating pipes or mats of an underfloor heating system consistently and uniformly warm the air over the whole floor area which then radiates upwards all through the room.
Lower Running Costs: Underfloor systems are less expensive run since they use less power for the warmth benefits from a traditional heating system, which also means they are better for the environment.
Simplicity of Use: Both water and electric underfloor heating installations are managed and controlled by a dedicated digital thermostat. It can be pre-programmed in line with your circumstances at various times of day or season, and gives you complete control over your heating.
Requires Little Maintenance: With practically no maintenance demands, electrical underfloor heating systems are hassle free and should provide many years of reliable service. In contrast to radiators, wet underfloor heating should not require flushing or bleeding and only requires periodic checks to make sure it's working to its optimum efficiency. The reduced running temperatures also puts much less stress on boilers and other heating systems (air/ground source heat pumps etc), therefore making them longer lasting and generally more reliable.
Perfect For Any Room: The installation of underfloor heating can make available the 10% of wasted space that is frequently created by conventional hot water radiators. The point that underfloor heating systems can be used beneath virtually any floor covering makes them ideal for living areas, bathrooms, conservatories and kitchens in Addlestone. It's also possible to install underfloor heating in outside spaces like terraces, garages or summer houses.
Healthier Air Quality: The radiant heat that warms up your rooms from an underfloor heating system generates less airflow through convectional air currents than standard central heating radiators. This reduces the amount of pollen and dust circulating around your home, creating a much healthier environment.
The type of underfloor heating system that's best for your situation will depend on the amount of work you're prepared to undertake. Electric underfloor systems in Addlestone are usually quicker to install and design. It's also an uncomplicated choice for retrofitting into a pre-existing building in Addlestone. If your project is a new build property or part of a major restoration, water underfloor heating systems might be more appropriate, especially if you are going to be laying a new sub-floor.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN ADDLESTONE
Using electrically heated mats or wires that are linked up to a thermostat and a suitable mains supply, an electric underfloor heating system in Addlestone, is fast and simple to install. It is a good solution for most underfloor projects and can easily be retrofitted into existing houses. If have a spare room or are converting an attic which doesn't get used at all times it can be the perfect choice.
An electric heating mat system can be installed in as little as 30 minutes. Just roll out and adhere the electric heating mat to the sub-floor or insulating surface, have it connected to the electricity mains supply by an experienced person, and it is good to go. Your underfloor company in Addlestone will be able to offer advice about which thermal heating mats are most appropriate for your particular flooring finish.
If you've got a smaller room, or perhaps an oddly shaped area where a standard mat isn't suitable, loose, free-form wire can be employed for the same effect. As the name suggests, the heating element comes in the form of one single cable which is laid upon a substrate or insulation pad beneath your main floor covering. A qualified electrician will link up the heating cable to a suitable electric point or spur, and at the same time put in a room based digital thermostat.
Electric underfloor heating can be installed as a whole house system which is managed from a central control unit, or can be fitted separately into specific rooms as freestanding devices. If you're planning or designing a smart home system for your house in Addlestone, it is simple to incorporate metering information and underfloor heating thermostats into your blueprints.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
Water underfloor heating systems, also referred to as wet floor or hydronic systems employ hot water to warm your property. You can use an existing gas or oil fired boiler with these heating systems, or in new build homes they can easily be connected to air or ground source heat pumps.
Installing a warm water system increases the height of your floor as it is placed into a layer of thermal screeding above the subfloor. In Addlestone new builds this extra height can be allowed for in the design stage, but for existing builds there are thin pipe alternatives which keep the extra thickness requirement to a minimum. As a method of whole house heating, water based underfloor heating systems have grown more and more popular in recent years. This is owing to their lower operating costs, higher efficiency and increased thermal effect.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS ADDLESTONE
build homes in Addlestone are increasingly using a hybrid system of both water and electric underfloor heating in new build projects. Ground floor areas and basements which have higher heating requirements utilise water underfloor systems, whereas bedrooms and spare rooms have electric underfloor heating installed. The efficiency of a "whole house" installation can be perfectly adapted to suit any building by using a hybrid system.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION
Before commencing any installation it's very important that a thermal heat loss survey is completed on your dwelling in Addlestone. A survey by an architect or certified heating engineer will look out for parts of your property that require additional insulation and also establish the perfect scale of underfloor heating system for your needs. Areas such as conservatories or uninsulated rooms with a higher degree of heat loss will require a greater wattage system than those of a small bedroom/office space or a lounge. The design of the underfloor heating setup, electric, water fed or hybrid, will be based upon this detailed survey which pinpoints the shape, size and heating needs of the whole installation.
To reduce heat loss in to the sub-floor it may be required to insert insulating boards underneath any pipes or heat mats. The heat generated is then literally "pushed" upwards instead of being absorbed into the floor below, and has the benefit of decreasing room warm-up times and increasing the system efficiency.
There are DIY options for installing underfloor heating, although it is required that any electrical hook-ups are completed by a certified electrician who is NICEIC/Part P qualified. It's recommended to use a professional installation team in Addlestone for all of your underfloor heating requirements, who will observe all the applicable Health & Safety regulations and provide guarantees for their work. Servicing, warranties and the level of aftercare support are significant factors to consider from any Addlestone contractor that provides underfloor heating equipment and installation.
If you're thinking about a new underfloor heating system for installation into an existing house in Addlestone, it is best to look at electric systems. New build houses are more suited to wet floor systems which are far more easily integrated into newly laid floorings.
Either type of underfloor heating will save you money on traditional heating methods, and provide you with a consistent quantity of heat which is simple to control and monitor.
If you are thinking about updating your heating system, or just want to warm a cool area in your property, underfloor heating is a perfect choice.

Addlestone Underfloor Heating Questions
Just the other week I thought it would be a great idea to look at the kinds of questions householders in Addlestone ask in relation to underfloor heating. Several of you have posted justifiable questions that I thought might be relevant to this article. The most germane ones appeared to be, "Will underfloor heating heat my room?", "Are underfloor heating mats expensive to run?", "How does underfloor heating thermostat work?", "Can you connect underfloor heating to radiator pipes?", "Do underfloor heating systems leak?" and "How do underfloor heating thermostats work?" The vast majority of these queries will have hopefully been addressed in this blog post, and if that is not the case an underfloor "Q&A" section is the next thing we're going to introduce. Our thanks go to these property owners in Addlestone for taking the time to send in their excellent questions; Tim Carr, Riley Dowling, Fred Barnes and Jamie Gillett.
