Underfloor Heating Henley-on-Thames Oxfordshire (RG9): Your property in Henley-on-Thames can be warmed cost effectively and efficiently through the use of underfloor heating. Being extremely versatile in its uses, underfloor heating can be employed to reduce the effect of cold spots by supplementing your existing heating, or it can replace the traditional radiators and be used as a whole property system of heating. You can choose between electric or water systems for your underfloor heating needs.
Both electric and wet underfloor systems provide uniform and efficient heating from the floor upwards. Underfloor heating requires less energy to operate than a traditional radiator because it does not need to run at such a high temperature. Typically a gas central heating radiator will run at temperatures of between sixty five and seventy five degrees Celcius, whereby underfloor heating requires only a temperature of approximately 25 to 35 degrees Celcius to effectively heat up a room of the same size.
BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Consistent and Uniform Heat: A conventional hot water radiator warms up the air next to the radiator's surface first, and then rises before being spread gradually around the whole room which can easily create cold areas. With underfloor systems, the heating mats or pipes are spread across the entire floor area to provide a consistent heat which rises upwards from the floor all around the room.
Lower Running Costs: Underfloor heating systems are less expensive run as they use less power for the same feeling of warmth from a traditional heating system, therefore also making them more eco-friendly.
Usability: You have control of heating close at hand in both electric and wet underfloor systems with a digital thermostat which in many options can be connected with your smart phone. This can be pre-programmed in line with your circumstances at various times of day or year, and gives you 24-hour control of your heating system.
Requires Little Maintenance: Being pretty much maintenance-free and offering years of reliable service an electrical underfloor system could be just the thing for heating your property in Henley-on-Thames. To keep a water underfloor heating system working efficiently only occasional inspections are needed, unlike a radiator heated system which needs to be bled and flushed from time to time. Water boilers or other heat sources will also have less demand placed upon them, making them last longer and be more reliable.
Perfect For Any Room: Traditional hot water radiators take up a surprising amount of "dead" space in a room, approximately ten percent on average, which can be made available with an underfloor heating installation. The point that underfloor heating systems can be used alongside almost any floor covering makes them appropriate for living areas, kitchens, conservatories and bathrooms in Henley-on-Thames. You can even use underfloor heating for exterior areas such as summer houses, terraces or garages.
Improved Air Quality: The radiant heat that warms up your room as a result of an underfloor heating system produces less airflow via convectional air currents than regular hot water radiators. This establishes a healthier environment by reducing the quantity of dust particles and pollen which circulate around a room.
Exactly how much work you want to do on your home in Henley-on-Thames, can influence what sort of underfloor heating is more suitable for you. Being easier to design and install, electric underfloor heating is just the thing for small projects in Henley-on-Thames. Retrofitting into an existing property is also much easier with electric underfloor heating systems in Henley-on-Thames. If you're going to be laying a new sub-floor in a new build or restoration project, warm water underfloor heating will be a better alternative.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING
The easiest and quickest underfloor heating system to put in is an electric mat or wire system, which just needs a connection to the mains supply and a suitable digital thermostat within your property in Henley-on-Thames. It can be readily retrofitted into existing buildings and is a good option most underfloor projects. If heating isn't necessary on a daily basis, for example in attic conversions or spare rooms, it's the perfect alternative.
An electric heating mat system can be installed in as little as half an hour. Their installation only requires these to be unrolled and affixed to the sub-floor or insulating material before having them connected by a professional person to the mains supply. Different sorts of heating mat are available for varying floor surfaces and your underfloor company in Henley-on-Thames will be able to give you some guidance about which type is better for your situation.
Loose cable heating wire is great for unusually shaped rooms where cutting mats to the right size can be challenging. This entails laying a single cable heating element in runs onto an insulating material onto your floor before being covered over with the flooring finish of your choice. A room based thermostat will be installed and the cable linked up to an appropriate electric point by a certified electrician.
Electric underfloor heating can be separate systems in each room, or can be integrated with a whole home system with control from a single point. If you're intending to install a smart home system in your property in Henley-on-Thames, it's perfectly possible to integrate electric underfloor thermostats and metering into your plans.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
Also termed hydronic or wet floor systems, these employ hot water as the source for your heating. These systems can be connected to a conventional boiler if you've already got one installed, or can just as easily be used in conjunction with ground or air source heat pumps in new build properties.
Wet floor systems are installed into the subfloor screed layer and as such produce a greater thickness of floor. In new build projects in Henley-on-Thames, this increased height can be allowed for in the design stage, but for older properties there are slender pipe solutions which keep the extra thickness requirement to a minimum. As a strategy for "whole house" heating, these systems have become increasingly more popular. Their higher efficiency, greater thermal effect and lower running costs have all contributed to the growing number of underfloor heating installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS HENLEY-ON-THAMES
A mixture of electric and water underfloor heating techniques can be employed in the creation of a hybrid underfloor setup. Water based systems are employed on ground floors and basements which have higher heating energy requirements, whilst upstairs rooms use electric underfloor heating. The heating needs of virtually any home in Henley-on-Thames can be attained through the use of a hybrid underfloor system.
PLANNING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
If you are looking into the prospects for fitting an underfloor heating system to any area of your dwelling in Henley-on-Thames, it is important that you conduct a heat loss survey. A qualified heating engineer or architect will conduct the survey to determine if any extra levels of insulation are needed and what size of heating system you will need. Areas such as conservatories or uninsulated rooms with a higher degree of heat loss will require a greater wattage system than that of a family room or small bedroom/office space. This crucial part of the design stage will determine the size, heating requirements and layout of the hybrid, water fed or electric underfloor heating installation.
To lessen thermal losses in to the sub-floor it may be necessary to position insulating boards beneath any pipes or heat mats. The heat generated is then literally "pushed" upwards instead of being absorbed into the floor below, and has the benefit of increasing system efficiency and lowering room heat-up times.
All electrical link-ups have to be carried out by a Part P accredited NICEIC electrician, but electric mats and water pipes can be laid by any skilled DIYer. It is always preferable to use an experienced installation provider in Henley-on-Thames for all of your underfloor heating requirements, who will observe all appropriate Health and Safety regulations and provide guarantees and warranties for their work and equipment. Warranties, servicing and the level of aftercare support are significant things to bear in mind from any Henley-on-Thames contractor that provides underfloor heating installation and equipment.
