Underfloor Heating Highbridge Somerset (TA9): Underfloor heating is a cost effective and efficient approach to warming your property in Highbridge. You can use underfloor heating to completely replace conventional heating solutions, like radiators, or use it to augment your existing heating to reduce cold spots in your property. Underfloor heating is available in 2 primary forms: electric or warm water systems.
The benefit of an efficient and uniform heating system from the floor up, can be achieved with either an electric or wet setup. Underfloor heating requires less energy to run than a traditional radiator heating setup because it does not have to run at such a high temperature. To heat a room effectively a traditional gas boiler and radiator system will need water temperatures of between sixty five and seventy five degrees Celcius, which is over two times that of the 25-35 degrees required by an underfloor heating setup.
BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Uniform and Consistent Heat: A hot water radiator warms up the air directly next to its surfaces and relies on convection to warm a room, frequently creating cool areas. The air in a room radiates upwards from all floor areas simultaneously, and is a uniform heat from floor level heating mats or pipes in an underfloor heating system.
Cheaper Running Costs: As these underfloor solutions have a lower temperature requirement to provide the same heating benefits, they cost less to run and are more eco-friendly.
Ease of Use: You have control of heating at your fingertips in both warm water and electric underfloor heating installations with a programmable digital thermostat which in many cases can be connected with your smart phone. This easily operated device gives you total control over your heating requirements and can be pre-programmed to suit your specific situation.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: Electric underfloor systems require almost no maintenance and should provide many years of hassle free use. Unlike radiators, warm water underfloor heating should not require bleeding or flushing and only requires occasional checks to make certain it's working to its optimum efficiency. Water fed underfloor systems also tend to be more reliable and longer lasting because they place less pressure on existing boilers and other heating systems.
Perfect For Any Room: You can free up the wasted space that exists around traditional hot water radiators by using underfloor heating, which can be an incredible ten percent of a room's area. The point that underfloor heating systems can be used with almost any floor covering makes them appropriate for kitchens, conservatories, living areas and bathrooms in Highbridge. It's also possible to use underfloor heating for outdoor areas like terraces, summerhouses or garages.
Improved Air Quality: Underfloor heating creates radiant heat from floor level, which cuts down on the thermal air currents like those caused by traditional central heating radiators or halogen heaters. A better and healthier environment is established as the circulation of pollen and dust particles in the air is lowered.
The type of underfloor heating system which is best for your situation depends on precisely how much work you're prepared to undertake. With their ease of installation and simpler design, electric underfloor systems could be more suitable for your small projects in Highbridge. Electric underfloor heating systems are also more easily installed into pre-existing buildings in Highbridge as a retrofit form of heating. Water based systems, by their very design are often a better solution in new build or during remodelling work where the floors are being re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
An electric underfloor heating system in Highbridge is quick and easy to install, needing only a link-up to the electricity mains supply and a digital thermostat. It is a good solution for most projects and can easily be retrofitted into existing properties. If heating is not required at all times, such as in loft space conversions or spare rooms, it is an excellent solution.
With the installation process taking barely more than 30 minutes, electric heating mats can be ready to go in a short period of time. Just spread out and bond the heating mat to the insulating material or sub-floor, have it connected to the power supply by a competent electrician, and it is good to go. Your underfloor heating installer in Highbridge will be delighted to offer some advice on which heating mats are most appropriate for your choice of flooring finish.
Loose cable electric heating wire is the best thing for unusually shaped rooms or areas where cutting mats to the right size can be challenging. This entails laying a heating element (single cable) in runs onto a suitable insulation material onto your sub-floor before being covered over with the flooring finish of your choosing. A competent electrician will link up the cable to an appropriate electric spur or point, and at the same time put in a room based thermostat.
You can fit electric underfloor heating as freestanding units into individual rooms, or assimilate it with a "whole home" system where it's controlled from a single point. If you happen to have a smart home in Highbridge, or are contemplating an installation of smart thermostats and other equipment, electric underfloor heating can be easily integrated into your proposed design.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN HIGHBRIDGE
Also known as wet floor or hydronic underfloor systems, these employ hot water as the source for your heating. You can use a pre-existing gas boiler with these underfloor heating systems, or in new build properties they can easily be connected to ground or air source heat pumps.
Installing a water fed system significantly increases the floor height as it's placed into a thermal screed over your subfloor. This makes them more appropriate for new build projects in Highbridge, nevertheless there are slim pipe options for retrofitting, that don't create too much of a raised floor area. As a whole house heating method, water fed underfloor heating systems have become increasingly popular in recent years. People are switching over to these systems owing to their efficiency of heating rooms, greater thermal effect and lower running costs when compared with conventional heating solutions.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR SYSTEMS IN HIGHBRIDGE
A hybrid alternative combines the top attributes of both water and electric underfloor heating systems. Water based systems are employed on ground floors and cellars which have greater heating requirements, while upstairs rooms and loft spaces will use electric underfloor heating. This combination offers the best efficiency with the maximum heating benefits.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION
Before commencing any installation it's very important that a thermal heat loss survey is conducted on your dwelling in Highbridge. A survey by an accredited heating engineer or architect will look out for parts of your building that need further insulation and also figure out the ideal size of underfloor system to provide your heating requirements. Internal living spaces will have different wattage requirements than those of high heat loss areas, such as conservatory or garage conversion. The design of your underfloor heating setup, electric, water fed or hybrid, will be based upon this survey which establishes the shape, heating requirements and dimensions of the whole installation.
In most underfloor heating installations it will be required to insert insulation panels beneath the mats or pipes to eliminate heat loss into the sub-floor. Using this insulation increases system efficiency by lowering the warm-up or heating time by "pushing" the heat upwards into the rooms.
Although a Part P/ NICEIC qualified electrician will be required to make any electrical connections, it's possible for an accomplished DIY-er to do almost all of the installation on underfloor heating. As is the case with any plumbing and electrical installations in Highbridge, the recommendation is to use a professional tradesperson for the added safety and guarantees that come as part of the installation process. Despite the high reliability of underfloor heating it's still important to consider the level of warranty and aftercare, like servicing, that's provided by your installation company in Highbridge.
Electric underfloor heating systems are especially suitable for extensions, attic conversions and older property upgrades due to the easier installation process needing no connection to a hot water boiler or system. On account of the flooring demands for water fed underfloor heating they are a better bet for new build developments or homes having major renovation works carried out.
You can save money and get a more uniform and easily controllable method of heating with underfloor systems over that of its traditional counterparts.
Underfloor heating systems are an ideal way to warm up your whole house, or just as readily be installed into an individual room or extension to your property.
