Underfloor Heating Dukinfield Greater Manchester (SK16): An efficient and economical way to heat your home in Dukinfield, is to put in underfloor heating. Underfloor heating is versatile in its uses, as it can be employed to eliminate cold spots by supplementing your current heating arrangement, or it can take the place of conventional radiators and be used as a whole property system of heating. You can take your pick between electric or water systems for your underfloor heating requirements.
Whichever installation you opt for, electric or warm water, you'll get uniform heating from the floor upwards which is effective and efficient. They operate at cooler temperatures than standard hot water radiators and so don't use so much energy. Normally a water heated radiator will work at temperatures of between 65 and 75°C, whereas underfloor heating only needs a temperature of about 25-30 degrees Celsius to efficiently warm a room of comparable size.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN DUKINFIELD
Uniform Heat: Cold spots can frequently be created with traditional radiators, as the air close to the radiator's surface is warmed up initially, before slowly spreading around the room by convection. In the case of underfloor systems, the heating mats or pipes are laid out across the entire floor to produce a uniform heat which rises upwards from the floor right throughout the room.
Cheaper to Run: These underfloor heating systems are more environmentally friendly and cost less to run, as they have a lower temperature requirement to produce the same warming outcomes.
Simplicity of Use: Energy use and temperature are controlled by a digital programmable thermostat, which can be connected to smart phone, in both wet and electric installations. You'll benefit from full control of your heating system, and it can even be pre-programmed to suit colder times of the day or automatically adjust to the different demands of the seasons.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: Electric underfloor heating systems require pretty much no maintenance and will provide years of hassle free use. Unlike radiators, wet underfloor heating shouldn't require flushing or bleeding and only needs periodic inspections to ensure that it's working at optimum efficiency. The lower running temperatures also put far less pressure on boilers and alternative heating methods (air/ground source heat pumps etc), therefore making them longer lasting and more reliable.
Perfect For Any Room: Smaller rooms can appear larger by freeing up the ten percent of dead space that exists around traditional hot water radiators which can't be used, through the installation of underfloor heating. It does not matter if you've got a carpeted lounge, a laminate kitchen floor or a tiled bathroom; there are different types of underfloor heating system to suit your circumstances. You can even opt for a fully waterproof underfloor heating solution for your patio, summer house or garage in Dukinfield.
Healthier Air Quality: With subtle heat rising from the floor, underfloor heating produces what is termed, radiant heat, which reduces the thermal air currents around a room. This minimises the quantity of dust and pollen moving around the room, creating a better environment.
The form of underfloor heating that's better for your circumstances depends on just how much work you are prepared to do. Electric underfloor systems in Dukinfield are generally quicker and less complicated to install and design. It is also a simple solution for retrofitting into a pre-existing structure in Dukinfield. Water underfloor heating systems, by their very design are a better solution during restoration work or in new build properties where the floors are being completely re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN DUKINFIELD
The quickest and simplest underfloor heating to fit is an electric mat system, which merely needs a link-up to the mains power supply and a suitable digital thermostat within your home in Dukinfield. It can be conveniently retrofitted into existing properties and is suitable for pretty much all underfloor projects. If heating is not necessary at all times, for example in attic conversions or spare rooms, it is a perfect alternative.
An electric heating mat system can be laid in as little as half an hour. Just spread out and adhere the heating mat to the sub-floor or insulating material, have it linked up to the electricity mains supply by a competent electrician, and it's all set to go. Different kinds of underfloor heating mats are on the market for different floor surfaces and your underfloor heating installer in Dukinfield will be delighted to give you some guidance about which type is right for your circumstances.
If you are faced with a small room, or perhaps an oddly shaped area where a ready-made pad or mat is not so easy to cut, loose, free-form cable can be used instead. This involves arranging a heating element (single cable) in "runs" onto a suitable insulating pad onto your floor before being covered over with the floor covering of your choosing. A room based thermostat will be fitted and the cable wired up to an appropriate electric point or spur by an experienced electrician.
Electric underfloor heating can be installed as a whole house system that is controlled from a single point, or can be installed independently into specific rooms as standalone units. If you happen to have a smart home in Dukinfield, or are thinking about installing smart thermostats or other equipment, electric underfloor heating systems can be easily integrated into your design plans.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN DUKINFIELD
Hot water is used in this type of underfloor heating system, which are also called hydronic or wet floor systems by different makers. They can be linked up to ground or air source heat pumps (usually found in newer builds), or a pre-existing boiler if replacing conventional heating radiators.
Warm water systems are installed into the screed of a subfloor and therefore produce a greater floor thickness. This makes water fed systems more suitable for new build houses in Dukinfield, however there are slim pipe options for retrofitting, without creating a hugely raised floor area. Over the last few years these wet systems have become increasingly popular as a strategy for "whole home" heating in Dukinfield. This is largely owing to their efficiency of heating rooms, lower operating costs and increased thermal effect.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
build projects in Dukinfield are increasingly using a hybrid system of both electric and water underfloor heating in new build projects. Ground floor areas and basements which have greater energy requirements utilise wet floor systems, whereby bedrooms and other upstairs rooms have electric underfloor heating installed. This combination offers maximum heating levels with best efficiency.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
If you are looking into the possibility of fitting underfloor heating to any room of your property in Dukinfield, it's important to perform a thermal heat loss survey. A qualified heating engineer or architect will complete a on-site survey to determine any extra levels of insulation necessary and what size of heating system that you will be needing. High areas of heat loss, for instance conservatories and orangeries, will have greater wattage requirements than those of internal living spaces. This vital part of the design phase will verify the structure, heating requirements and size of the electric, water fed or hybrid underfloor heating installation.
Insulating boards inserted beneath the heating cables, pipes or heat mats may be required to lessen any sub-floor heat loss. Using this insulation material increases system efficiency by bringing down the warm-up or heating time by essentially "pushing" the generated heat up into your room.
All electrical link-ups have to be completed by a Part P certified NICEIC electrician, but electric mats and water pipes can be installed by any competent DIY-er. It's always recommended to use a specialist installation company in Dukinfield for your underfloor heating, who will abide by all the applicable Health and Safety guidelines and offer guarantees for their work and equipment. Servicing, warranties and the amount of aftercare support are important things to keep in mind from any Dukinfield firm who offers underfloor heating installation and equipment.
Electric underfloor heating systems are particularly suited to older property upgrades, attic conversions and extensions because of the easier installation process requiring no connection to a hot water system. On account of the flooring height requirements for warm water underfloor heating they are a better bet for properties having major restoration works completed, or new build developments.
You will save money and get a more easily controllable and consistent method of heating with any of these underfloor systems over their conventional counterparts.
Regardless of your requirements; "whole house" heating, or installation to an individual room, underfloor heating is an ideal choice when modernising your heating system.
