Underfloor Heating Dronfield Derbyshire (S18): Your home in Dronfield can be warmed efficiently and cost effectively using underfloor heating. You can use underfloor heating systems to completely replace conventional heating techniques, such as radiators, or it can be used to augment existing heating to reduce cold spots in your home. You can choose between water or electric systems for your underfloor heating installation.
No matter what underfloor installation you opt for, electric and wet, you'll get a uniform level of warming from the floor upwards which is effective and efficient. Underfloor heating requires less power to operate than a standard radiator as it doesn't have to run at such high temperatures. To effectively heat a room a conventional boiler and radiator system will need water temperatures of between 65 and 75°C, which is over two times that of the twenty five to thirty five degrees needed by an underfloor heating setup.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN DRONFIELD
Consistent Heat: Cold areas can be created with conventional hot water radiators, because the air next to the radiator's surface is warmed initially, before slowly spreading around the room through convection. The air in a room rises upwards from all floor areas simultaneously, and is a consistent and uniform heat from floor level heating mats or pipes in an underfloor heating setup.
Costs Less to Run: These systems are better for the environment and cost less to run, because they function at lower temperatures to generate the same thermal results.
Convenience of Use: Energy use and temperature are managed and controlled by a digital thermostat, which can be linked with your smart phone, in both warm water and electric underfloor systems. This can be pre-programmed in line with your circumstances at different times of day or year, giving you 24-hour control of your heating system.
Requires Little Maintenance: Electric underfloor systems require virtually no maintenance and can provide you with several years of hassle free use. Water fed underfloor heating systems might need periodic checks to make certain things are working correctly, but there's no need for flushing or air bleeding of radiators. Running water fed underfloor heating at lower temperatures also has the benefit of placing far less load on boilers and alternative methods of heating (ground/air source heat pumps) meaning that they are more reliable and giving them a longer service life.
Ideal For Any Room: The installation of an underfloor heating system can make available the ten percent of dead space that is usually created by traditional hot water radiators. The fact that underfloor heating can be used alongside virtually any floor covering also makes it suitable for bathrooms, kitchens, conservatories and living rooms in Dronfield. It's also possible to use underfloor heating for exterior areas such as summerhouses, garages or patios.
Improved Air Quality: With gentle warmth rising up from the floor, an underfloor heating system generates what is called, radiant heat, which reduces air currents around a room. This creates a better and healthier environment by decreasing the volume of pollen and dust particles which can circulate around your property.
The style of underfloor heating system that is best for you hinges on the amount of work you're willing to do. Being easier to design and install, electric underfloor heating systems is ideal for small projects in Dronfield. Electric systems are also less complicated to install into pre-existing buildings in Dronfield where retrofitting is required. If you're laying a new sub-floor in a new build or renovation project, water fed underfloor heating is a better alternative.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Using electrically heated wires or mats that are connected to the mains supply and a thermostat, electric underfloor heating in Dronfield, is quick and easy to install. It can be effortlessly retrofitted into existing homes and is a good solution most heating projects. If you are converting a loft or have a spare room which does not get used on a regular basis it can sometimes be an excellent option.
An electric heating mat can be installed in as little as half an hour. Their installation only involves them being rolled out and affixed to the sub-floor or insulating surface before being connected by a professional person to the electricity supply. Regardless of the floor covering that exists in your property in Dronfield, there's a style of underfloor heating mat available for you.
In unusually shaped spaces where cutting standard mats to the correct size could be difficult, free form heating wire can be used. This calls for arranging a heating element (single cable) in "runs" onto an insulating material on your floor before being covered by the floor covering of your choosing. A digital room based thermostat will be fitted and the cable connected to a suitable electric point or spur by a professional electrician.
Each room of your property in Dronfield can have freestanding electric underfloor heating fitted, or they could all be integrated with a whole home system with a single point of control. If you have a smart home in Dronfield, or are considering an installation of smart thermostats or other gadgets, electric underfloor heating can easily be integrated into your proposed design.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN DRONFIELD
Hot water is used to heat these underfloor heating systems, which can also be called wet floor or hydronic systems by different makers. These underfloor systems can be connected to a conventional gas boiler if you have one already installed, or can just as easily be plumbed into air or ground source heat pumps in newer builds.
Installing a warm water system significantly increases the height of your floor as it is placed into a thermal screed above your subfloor. In new build projects in Dronfield, this extra height can be allowed for in the design stage, but for existing builds there are slender pipe alternatives which keep the extra thickness requirement to a minimum. As a strategy for "whole home" heating, these water based systems have become increasingly more popular. Their lower operating costs, increased thermal effect and higher efficiency are all contributing factors in the growing number of underfloor heating installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS DRONFIELD
A hybrid alternative uses the most effective attributes of both electric and water underfloor heating systems. Areas with higher energy requirements such as ground floor living areas and basements will have a water based underfloor system installed, whilst upstairs rooms, lofts and attics will use an electric solution. This combination provides the best efficiency with the maximum heating advantages.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION
It is essential to perform a thermal heat loss survey on your dwelling in Dronfield before engaging in any installation. An architect or qualified heating engineer will complete a on-site survey to determine if any extra levels of insulation are required and what size of heating system that you will be needing. Interior living areas will have different wattage needs than that of high temperature loss areas, such as conservatory or garage conversion. This vital part of the design phase will verify the structure, dimensions and heating needs of the electric, water or hybrid underfloor heating installation.
In most underfloor heating installations insulation boards will have to be inserted beneath the pipes or mats to minimise thermal heat loss through the sub-floor. Using this insulation material raises system efficiency by decreasing the warm-up or heating time by "pushing" the heat up into the rooms.
All electrical hook-ups have to be done by a Part P qualified NICEIC electrician, but heating mats and water pipes can be installed by any capable DIY-er. It's always advisable to use a professional installation team in Dronfield for all of your underfloor heating requirements, who'll abide by all of the appropriate Health and Safety regulations and offer guarantees and warranties for their work and equipment.
