Underfloor Heating Glenrothes Scotland (KY6): Underfloor heating is an economical and efficient approach to warming up your home in Glenrothes. Underfloor heating is versatile in its uses, as it can be used to reduce cold spots by augmenting your current heating arrangement, or it can be used as a substitute for the traditional radiators and be installed as a heating system for the whole property. You can take your pick between electric or warm water systems for your underfloor heating installation.
No matter which installation you opt for, electric and wet, you'll get a consistent level of warming from the floor upwards which is efficient and effective. These systems don't operate at the high temperatures needed by traditional forms of heating, such as radiators, and therefore use less energy. To heat a room effectively a traditional gas boiler and radiator setup will require water temperatures of between sixty five and seventy five degrees Celcius, which is over double that of the 25-30 degrees Celsius needed by an underfloor heating system.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN GLENROTHES
Uniform Heat: With air being warmed next to a radiator's surfaces before being spread around a room through convection, cold areas often occur. Floor level heating mats or pipes warm the whole floor area in a uniform and consistent way with an underfloor heating system.
Cheaper to Run: Because these underfloor solutions call for less of a temperature requirement to provide the same heating benefits, they cost less to run and are better for the environment.
Simplicity of Use: You have control of heating at your fingertips in both electric and warm water underfloor heating systems with a digital thermostat which on most systems can be connected to your smartphone. You'll benefit from complete control of your heating system, and you can even pre-programme your heating to suit colder times of day or adjust automatically as the seasons change.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: Generally providing several years of hassle free service which requires pretty much no maintenance, electric underfloor heating is a reliable method of heating your property in Glenrothes. Water systems might need occasional checks to make sure things are all working correctly, however there is no need for flushing or air bleeding of radiators. Running water fed underfloor heating at reduced temperatures also has the benefit of placing far less pressure on gas boilers and other heating methods (air/ground source heat pumps) giving them a longer service life and making them generally more reliable.
Perfect For Any Room: You can make available the dead space that exists around traditional radiators by using underfloor heating, which can surprisingly be around ten percent of the area of a room. Different methods of underfloor heating can be installed in lounges, bathrooms, kitchens and conservatories in Glenrothes, and can work successfully with just about any type of floor covering, from hard flooring to carpets. It's also possible to install underfloor heating in outside areas of your property in Glenrothes like summerhouses, patios or garages.
Better Air Quality: The radiant heat that warms up your room as a result of an underfloor heating system creates less airflow via the air currents than conventional radiators. This minimises the quantity of pollen and dust moving around the room, creating a much healthier environment.
Exactly how much work you want to do on your property in Glenrothes, can influence what kind of underfloor heating system is best you. Electric underfloor heating systems in Glenrothes are generally easier and quicker to design and install. They can also be simply adapted for retrofitting to an existing dwelling in Glenrothes. If you are going to be laying a brand new floor in a restoration project or new build home, water warmed underfloor heating will be a more suitable alternative.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
The fastest and simplest underfloor heating system to put in is an electric mat or wire system, which merely requires a link-up to a suitable digital thermostat and mains supply within your property in Glenrothes. It can be effortlessly retrofitted into existing dwellings and is a decent option all underfloor projects. It's an excellent kind of heating for spare rooms and attic conversions which do not need heating if they aren't in use.
It can take as little as thirty minutes to lay an electric heating mat in a moderately sized living area. Simply spread out and adhere the heating mat to the insulating layer or sub-floor, have it connected to the power supply by an experienced person, and it's good to go. Whatever the floor surface that exists in your house in Glenrothes, there's a heating mat alternative available for you.
If you want to heat a smaller or oddly shaped room where a standard mat is not so easy to cut, loose, free-form cable can be used instead. 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. A room based thermostat will be installed and the cable connected to an appropriate electric point by an experienced electrician.
Electric underfloor heating can be installed as standalone units in each room, or can be integrated with a "whole home" system with control from a single point. If you happen to have a smart home in Glenrothes, or are considering installing smart thermostats or other gadgets, electric underfloor heating systems can be easily integrated into your design plans.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN GLENROTHES
Hot water is employed to heat these underfloor heating systems, which are also often termed as wet floor or hydronic systems by various brands. These systems can be linked to a conventional gas or oil fired boiler if you have already got one installed, or can be used in conjunction with ground or air source heat pumps in new build properties.
The floor thickness is significantly increased as water based systems have to be installed into the subfloor screeding. In new build houses in Glenrothes, this increased height can be allowed for in the design stage, but for older homes there are slim pipe solutions which keep the extra thickness to a minimum. The use of water based systems is now being more widely adopted as a technique for whole house heating in Glenrothes. Their greater thermal effect, lower operating costs and efficiency of heating rooms are all contributing factors in the growing number of underfloor heating installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN GLENROTHES
A mix of water and electric underfloor heating can be utilised to create a hybrid heating system. Areas with higher heating energy requirements such as ground floors and basements will have a water underfloor system installed, whilst upstairs rooms, lofts and attics will use an electric option. The combination of these two methods delivers a highly efficient and unique heating system.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
If you're considering installing underfloor heating to any part of your home in Glenrothes, it is essential that you carry out a heat loss survey. The on-site survey will be carried out by a qualified heating engineer or architect who will establish the heating requirements and insulation needs of your house. High heat loss areas, such as conservatories, will have greater wattage requirements than those of better insulated, internal living spaces. The heating requirements, size and shape of the electric mats or water pipes will be based upon this detailed survey and is an essential part of the design phase.
In most installations insulation panels will have to be placed beneath the pipes or mats to help reduce heat loss through the sub-floor. Using this insulation raises the efficiency of the system by reducing the warm-up or heating time by essentially "pushing" the generated heat upwards into your rooms.
It's possible for a capable do-it-yourself fanatic to install an underfloor heating system, but any electrical hook-ups must be done by an accredited NICEIC electrician to Part P specifications. As with most electrical and plumbing installations in Glenrothes, the best advice is to use a professional tradesman for the safety and guarantees that are included within the installation process. Despite the high reliability of underfloor heating it is imperative that you look into the level of warranty and aftercare support, like servicing, that's offered by your Glenrothes installation company.
If you're considering an underfloor heating system for installation in a current home in Glenrothes, it's best to look at an electric mat system. On account of the extra flooring requirements for warm water underfloor heating they are a better bet for new build developments or homes having major restoration works carried out.
Underfloor heating systems are more efficient, have lower running costs, are easily controlled by means of smart digital thermostats and are significantly more reliable than conventional heating solutions.
