Underfloor Heating Hythe Hampshire (CT21): Your property in Hythe can be heated efficiently and cost effectively using underfloor heating. You can employ underfloor heating systems to take the place of conventional heating methods, such as radiators, or it can be used to boost your existing heating to minimise cold spots in your home. Underfloor heating is available as two main types: electric or warm water systems.
Both electric and wet underfloor systems provide consistent and efficient heating from the floor upwards. Underfloor heating consumes less energy than a traditional radiator because it doesn't need to operate at such high temperatures. Usually a gas fired central heating radiator will operate at temperatures of approximately 65 and 75 degrees C, while underfloor heating needs only temperatures of around 25-30 degrees Celsius to effectively heat a similarly sized room.
BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Consistent & Uniform Heat: With air being heated up close to a radiator's surfaces before spreading around a room through convection, cold spots frequently 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: They operate at lower temperatures to deliver the same heating benefits of a conventional system, and thus are more environmentally friendly and less expensive to run.
Ease of Use: Temperature control and energy use are controlled and managed by a digital programmable thermostat, which can be connected to smart phone, in both electric and warm water underfloor systems. You will have 24-hour control of your heating system, and you can even pre-programme your heating to suit colder times of the day or automatically adjust as the seasons change.
Requires Little Maintenance: With almost no maintenance demands, electric underfloor heating systems are usually trouble free and will provide several years of good service. Water fed heating systems might be in need of periodic checks to make certain that things are all working effectively, however there is no need for bleeding of radiators or flushing. Water fed underfloor systems are also more reliable and longer lasting as they place less stress on existing boilers and alternative heating methods.
Ideal For Any Room: Hot water radiators take up an astonishing amount of wasted space in a room, about 10% on average, which can be freed up by installing underfloor heating. It doesn't matter if you have a wooden kitchen floor, a tiled bathroom or a carpet in your lounge; there are variations of underfloor heating to suit your situation. You'll even find techniques for exterior underfloor heating in a patio, summer house or garage, to keep you cosy whatever the season in Hythe.
Air Quality: The radiant heat that warms your rooms from underfloor heating generates less airflow through the thermal air currents than old fashioned central heating radiators. A healthier environment is produced as the movement of pollen and dust particles in the air is reduced.

Water based underfloor heating systems, by their design are often a better solution in new build or during remodelling work where floors are being re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Using electrically heated mats or wires that are linked up to the mains supply and a digital thermostat, electric underfloor heating in Hythe, is quick and simple to install. It can be effortlessly retrofitted into existing homes and is a decent option pretty much all projects. If have a spare room or are converting a loft space that doesn't get used at all times it can sometimes be an excellent choice.

Different styles of heating mats are on the market for various floor coverings and your underfloor company in Hythe will be delighted to advise on which one is right for your home.
If you've got a smaller or awkwardly shaped room where a standard pad or mat is not suitable, loose, free-form cable can be employed instead. This entails laying a single cable heating element in runs onto a suitable insulating material on your sub-floor before being covered over with the floor covering of your choosing. A digital room based thermostat will be installed and the heating cable linked up to a suitable electric point or spur by a fully qualified electrician.
Electric underfloor heating can be installed as standalone systems in each room, or can be absorbed into a whole house system with control from a single point. If you are planning to install a smart home system in your house in Hythe, it is simple to integrate electric underfloor thermostats and metering into your plans.
WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN HYTHE
Hot water is employed in this type of underfloor heating system, which can also be called hydronic or wet floor systems by various manufacturers. The equipment can be connected to a traditional boiler if you have one already installed, or are just a effective when used in conjunction with air or ground source heat pumps in newer builds.
Installing a water fed system significantly increases the height of your floor as it is placed into a layer of thermal screed poured over your subfloor. In new build houses in Hythe, this increased height can be allowed for in the design phase, but for existing builds there are slimmer pipe solutions which keep the extra thickness requirement to a minimum. These water fed systems have grown increasingly popular as an alternative method of whole house heating in Hythe. Their efficiency of heating rooms, increased thermal effect and lower running costs are all contributing factors in the growing number of installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS HYTHE
A hybrid solution uses the most effective attributes of both water and electric underfloor heating. Wet systems are installed on cellars and ground floors which have higher heating energy requirements, whilst upper level rooms and loft spaces can be adequately served with electric underfloor heating. The heating requirements of pretty much any home in Hythe can be attained through the use of a hybrid underfloor heating system.
PLANNING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
If you're thinking about installing an underfloor heating system to any area of your house in Hythe, it is crucial that you perform a heat loss survey. An on-site survey by a qualified heating engineer or architect will check for parts of your house that require extra insulation and also ascertain the optimum scale of underfloor heating system for your requirements. Uninsulated areas like conservatories with a higher potential for heat loss will need a greater wattage system than that of a family room or small bedroom/office space. The design of your underfloor heating system, electric, water fed or hybrid, will depend on this survey which ascertains the shape, heating needs and dimensions of the whole installation.
To eliminate thermal heat losses through the sub-floor it may be required to position insulation panels under any pipes or heat mats. The heat is then "pushed" upwards as opposed to being absorbed by the floor below, and has the benefit of increasing system efficiency and decreasing room warm-up times.
Despite the fact that an NICEIC/Part P certified electrician will be essential to carry out any electrical connections, it is possible for a competent do-it-yourself fanatic to do a lot of the installation on underfloor heating. As with most plumbing and electrical installations in Hythe, the recommended course of action is to use a professional for the added safety and guarantees that are included within the installation process. You should also factor into your plans the levels of aftercare support, servicing and any warranty that come with your super, new underfloor heating setup.
