Underfloor Heating Hawick Scotland (TD9): Your property in Hawick can be heated economically and efficiently using underfloor heating. It can be used as an additional source of heating in combination with radiators, or can be installed as a whole house heating system to replace radiators and other methods of heating. There are 2 main kinds of underfloor heating: warm water or electric systems.
Both electric and water installations provide uniform and efficient heating from floor to ceiling. They operate at lower temperatures than conventional hot water radiators and therefore don't need so much energy. To heat a room effectively a conventional gas boiler and radiator setup will demand water heated up to between sixty five and seventy five degrees Celcius, which is over two times that of the 25-35 degrees needed by an underfloor heating setup.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Consistent Heat: Cold spots can a problem with regular radiators, since the air close to the radiator's surface is warmed up first, before slowly spreading around the room. The air in a room rises from its entire floor area simultaneously, and is a uniform and consistent heat from floor level heating mats or pipes in an underfloor heating system.
Costs Less to Run: Underfloor heating systems are cheaper run since they use reduced amounts of energy for the warmth benefits from a traditional central heating system, thus also making them better for the environment.
Usability: Both electric and water underfloor systems are controlled and managed by a dedicated digital thermostat. You'll benefit from total control of your heating, and it can even be pre-programmed to suit cooler times of day or adjust automatically as the seasons change.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: Electrical underfloor systems require pretty much no maintenance and will provide many years of hassle free use. To keep water fed underfloor heating working efficiently only occasional inspections are required, unlike a radiator system which needs to be flushed and bled fairly often. The reduced operating temperatures also puts much less pressure on gas boilers and alternative heating systems (ground/air source heat pumps etc), hence meaning that they're longer lasting and more reliable.
Perfect For Any Room: Traditional hot water radiators take up an astonishing amount of wasted space in a room, approximately 10% on average, which can be freed up for use by installing underfloor heating. The point that underfloor heating systems can be used with almost any floor covering makes them appropriate for conservatories, living areas, kitchens and bathrooms in Hawick. There are even techniques for exterior underfloor heating in a summer house, patio or garage, to keep you cosy throughout the year in Hawick.
Healthier Air Quality: The radiant heat that warms up your room as a result of an underfloor heating system produces less airflow through air currents than conventional radiators. This creates a better environment by minimising the amount of pollen and dust which can circulate around your home.
The amount of work you wish to do on your property in Hawick, can help to dictate what type of underfloor heating system is more suitable for you. Electric underfloor heating systems in Hawick are generally quicker and easier to design and install. Retrofitting into an existing building is also a lot easier with electric underfloor heating in Hawick. Warm water systems, by their design are generally a better alternative in new build or during renovation work where flooring is being completely re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN HAWICK
Electric underfloor heating in Hawick is quick and easy to fit, needing only a connection to the mains supply and a thermostat. It can be conveniently retrofitted into existing structures and is a good solution all projects. It can be an ideal alternative for an attic conversion or spare room which doesn't get used all the time.
An electric heating mat system can be installed in not much more than thirty minutes. The heating mats come in rolls which will be laid out onto the sub-floor or insulating surface, and all that is left to do is have them connected to a suitable mains supply by a competent person. Different types of underfloor heating mats are on the market for different floor surfaces and your underfloor heating company in Hawick will be able to give you advice on which type is right for your circumstances.
If you want to heat a smaller or oddly shaped room where a standard pad or mat isn't so easy to cut, loose, free-form cable can be employed to accomplish the same result. As the name suggests, the heating element comes as one single cable which is laid in "runs" onto an insulation pad or substrate beneath your main flooring finish. A certified electrician will link up the heating cable to a suitable electric spur or point, and at the same time put in a room based thermostat.
You could install electric underfloor heating as standalone units into any room, or connect it to a whole home system where it can be managed from a single control unit. If you have a smart home in Hawick, or are considering an installation of smart thermostats or other gadgets, electric underfloor heating systems can easily be integrated into your design plans.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
Also termed hydronic or wet floor systems, these use hot water as the thermal source for your heating. They can be linked to air or ground source heat pumps (usually found in new build properties), or a pre-existing gas boiler if replacing traditional heating radiators.
The thickness of the floor is increased as warm water systems are installed into a thermal layer of screeding. In Hawick new build properties this additional height can be absorbed in the design phase, but for older houses there are slender pipe alternatives which keep the extra thickness requirement to the bare minimum. As a strategy for "whole house" heating, these warm water systems are becoming ever more popular. This is due to their higher efficiency, lower operating costs and increased thermal effect.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN HAWICK
A hybrid alternative uses the best attributes of both water and electric underfloor heating systems. Upstairs rooms and loft conversions use electric underfloor heating, while ground floors and basements, which have greater heating energy requirements, use a warm water system. The mixing of the two designs delivers a highly efficient and unique hybrid heating system.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Before starting on any installation it's very important that a thermal heat loss survey is carried out on your home in Hawick. The on-site survey will be carried out by an architect or experienced heating engineer who will determine the insulation needs and heating requirements of your property. Areas such as conservatories or uninsulated rooms with a higher degree of heat loss will require a greater wattage system than that of a small bedroom/office space or a family room. The size, layout and heating requirements of the electric mats or water pipes will be based on this on-site survey and is an essential part of the design stage.
To help reduce heat loss through the sub-floor it may be required to place insulating panels underneath any heat mats, pipework or heating cables. The generated heat is then "pushed" upwards as opposed to being dispersed into the floor below, and has the benefit of increasing system efficiency and reducing warm-up times.
All electrical hook-ups must be completed by a Part P certified NICEIC electrician, but heating mats and water pipes can be installed by any competent do-it-yourself fanatic. It is advisable to use a specialist installation company in Hawick for all of your underfloor heating requirements, who'll comply with all of the relevant Health & Safety procedures and provide guarantees for their work and equipment. Even with the overall reliability of underfloor heating systems it's necessary to bear in mind the level of warranties and aftercare, such as servicing, which is offered by your installation company in Hawick.
Electric underfloor heating systems are especially suited to loft conversions, older property upgrades and extensions due to the easier installation process, and the point that no connections to a hot water system are required. Water based underfloor heating is better for new build or major renovation works where the extra flooring allowance can be factored in at the design stage.
Either form of underfloor heating will save you money on regular heating solutions, and provide a consistent quantity of heat which is easily monitored and controlled.
If you're thinking about updating your existing heating system, or simply want to warm up a cold part of your house, an underfloor heating system is an ideal option.
