Underfloor Heating Bexhill-on-Sea East Sussex (TN38 and TN39): Your property in Bexhill-on-Sea can be warmed efficiently and cost effectively through the use of an underfloor heating system. Underfloor heating is flexible in its uses, as it can be employed to reduce the effect of cold spots by augmenting your current heating arrangement, or it can take the place of the traditional radiators and be used as a whole property system of heating. Underfloor heating is available in 2 primary forms: warm water or electric systems.
Whatever installation you choose for your property in Bexhill-on-Sea, electric or warm water, you will introduce uniform heating from the floor up which is effective and efficient. These systems do not operate at the higher temperatures that are a feature of traditional forms of heating, such as radiators, and consequently need less energy. Typically a gas fired central heating radiator will run at a temperature of approximately 65 and 75 degrees C, where underfloor heating requires only temperatures of approximately 25 to 35°C to successfully heat up a room of comparable size.
BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Uniform & Consistent Heat: Cool spots can frequently be created with conventional radiators, since the air next to the radiator's surface is heated first, before it slowly spreads around the room by convection. Floor level heating mats or pipes warm the whole floor area in a uniform way with an underfloor heating setup.
Cheaper to Run: Seeing as these systems demand less of a temperature requirement to produce the same heat benefits, they cost less to run and are better for the environment.
Simplicity of Use: Energy use and temperature are managed and controlled by a digital programmable thermostat, which can be connected to smart phone, in both warm water and electric underfloor installations. This simple to operate gadget gives you total control over your heating and can be pre-programmed to suit your particular circumstances.
Low Maintenance: Electric underfloor heating systems require little or no maintenance and can provide you with several years of trouble free use. Water underfloor systems may be in need of occasional checks to make sure everything is working properly, however there is no need for flushing or bleeding of radiators. Operating water underfloor heating at reduced temperatures also puts less pressure on boilers and other methods of heating (ground/air source heat pumps) giving them a longer service life and making them generally more reliable.
Perfect For Any Room: Smaller rooms can seem larger by making available the ten percent of dead space that exists around traditional hot water radiators which cannot be used, by installing underfloor heating. It does not matter if you've got a carpeted lounge, a laminate kitchen floor or a tiled bathroom; there are types of underfloor heating to suit your circumstances. You can even choose fully waterproof outside underfloor heating for warming up your summerhouse, garage or patio in Bexhill-on-Sea.
Healthier Air Quality: The radiant heat that warms up your room from an underfloor heating system creates less airflow via air currents than standard radiators. This minimises the quantity of dust and pollen moving around the room, creating a better and healthier environment.
The amount of work you are willing to do on your property in Bexhill-on-Sea, can influence what type of underfloor heating system is better you. Being easier to design and install, electric underfloor heating is generally perfect for smaller projects in Bexhill-on-Sea. Retrofitting is also a lot easier with electric underfloor heating in Bexhill-on-Sea. Warm water underfloor systems, by their very design are better used in new builds or during restoration work where flooring is being completely re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN BEXHILL-ON-SEA
Using electric heating mats or wires which are linked up to the electricity mains supply and a digital thermostat, an electric underfloor heating system in Bexhill-on-Sea, is fast and simple to install. It is a good option for most heating projects and can readily be retrofitted into existing homes. If you happen to be converting an attic or have a spare room that does not get used on a regular basis it can sometimes be an excellent alternative.
In not much more than 30 minutes a series of electric heating mats can be installed. The heating mats come in rolls which will be spread out on the insulating surface or sub-floor, and then simply get them linked up to an appropriate electricity mains supply by an experienced electrician. Your underfloor company in Bexhill-on-Sea will be delighted to offer some advice on which underfloor heating mats are most appropriate for your specific flooring surface.
Free form electric heating wire is good for unusually shaped areas or rooms which can be difficult to cut standard mats to the correct size. This calls for laying a heating element (single cable) in runs onto a suitable insulation pad onto your floor before being covered over with the floor covering of your liking. Once installed the heating cable is linked up to a suitable electric spur and a thermostat by a certified electrician.
An electric underfloor heating system can be installed as a "whole house" setup which is managed from a central control device, or can be installed independently into specific rooms as freestanding devices. If you're preparing to install a smart home system in your house in Bexhill-on-Sea, it is quite possible to integrate electric underfloor thermostats and metering into your plans.
WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
Also termed wet floor or hydronic systems, these use hot water as the source for your heating. You can use a pre-existing central heating boiler with these underfloor heating systems, or in new build properties they can easily be linked up to ground or air source heat pumps.
The thickness of the floor is increased as wet floor systems have to be installed into the subfloor screeding. In Bexhill-on-Sea new builds this additional height can be allowed for in the design phase, but for existing builds there are slimmer pipe options which keep the extra thickness to a bare minimum. The use of wet systems is now increasing as a strategy for "whole home" heating in Bexhill-on-Sea. Their lower running costs, higher efficiency and increased thermal effect are all contributing factors in the growing number of underfloor heating installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS BEXHILL-ON-SEA
A mixture of water and electric underfloor heating can be utilised to create a hybrid system. Ground floors and cellars which have higher heating energy requirements utilise water based floor systems, whereas bedrooms and spare rooms have electric underfloor heating installed. The mixing of the two designs delivers a highly efficient and unique hybrid heating system.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Before commencing any underfloor heating installation it's vital that a thermal heat loss survey is completed on your home in Bexhill-on-Sea. This survey will be completed by an architect or certified heating engineer who will establish the insulation needs and heating requirements of your house. Internal living areas will have lower wattage requirements than that of higher heat loss areas, such as conservatory or garage conversion. The design of the underfloor heating setup, electric, water or hybrid, will be based upon this survey which ascertains the size, heating needs and structure of the entire installation.
Insulating boards inserted beneath the heat mats, heating cables or pipes will usually be needed to help reduce the amount of heat loss through the sub-floor. The heat is then "pushed" upwards as opposed to being absorbed by the floor below, and has the benefit of bringing down room warm-up times and increasing the system efficiency.
Despite the fact that an NICEIC/Part P qualified electrician will be required to make any electrical link-ups, it's possible for a proficient DIY person to do a lot of the installation on underfloor heating. It is preferable to use a qualified installation company in Bexhill-on-Sea for your underfloor heating, who'll observe all of the appropriate Health and Safety guidelines and provide guarantees for their work. Even with the overall reliability of underfloor heating it's still imperative that you look into the quantity of warranty and aftercare, like servicing, that is provided by your Bexhill-on-Sea installation company.
Electric underfloor heating systems are particularly suitable for extensions, loft conversions and older property upgrades due to the easier installation process, and the fact that no connections to a hot water system are necessary. Warm water underfloor heating is better for major renovation works or new developments where the additional flooring height can be factored in at the design stage.
Either form of underfloor heating will save you money on conventional heating methods, and provide you with consistent heating which is simple to control and monitor.
Whatever your requirements; whole property heating, or installation in a single room, underfloor heating is an excellent choice when upgrading your existing heating system.
