Underfloor Heating Keynsham Somerset (BS31): Your home in Keynsham can be warmed cost effectively and efficiently using underfloor heating. Underfloor heating is versatile in its uses, it can be used to reduce cold spots by supplementing your existing heating, or it can be used as a substitute for conventional radiators and be used as a whole property heating system. Electric and warm water are the 2 main types of underfloor heating system.
Both water and electric underfloor systems provide efficient and uniform heating from floor to ceiling. These systems don't run at the high temperatures needed by traditional forms of heating, like for example radiators, and therefore use less energy. To heat a room effectively a standard gas boiler and radiator setup will demand water heated up to between 65-75 degrees Celsius, which is more than double that of the twenty five to thirty five degrees required by an underfloor heating setup.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Uniform & Consistent Heat: A traditional radiator first warms up the air close to the radiator's surface, which subsequently rises before spreading gradually around the whole room which can easily create cold spots. With underfloor systems, the heating mats or pipes are arranged across the entire floor area to provide a uniform heat which rises upwards from the floor right throughout the room.
Cheaper to Run: These underfloor solutions are less costly to run and are better for the environment, as they have a lower temperature requirement to produce the equivalent thermal benefits.
Ease of Use: Energy use and temperature are managed by a programmable digital thermostat, which can be linked into your smart phone, in both warm water and electric underfloor heating installations. This easy to operate device offers you 24-hour control over your heating and can even be pre-programmed to suit your specific needs.
Low Maintenance: Being virtually maintenance-free and providing many years of reliable service an electric underfloor system could be just the thing for heating your house in Keynsham. In contrast to radiators, warm water underfloor heating shouldn't need bleeding or flushing and only needs periodic checks to ensure that it is working to its optimum efficiency. Water fed underfloor heating systems also tend to be more reliable and longer lasting as they place less stress on existing boilers and other heating systems.
Perfect For Any Room: You can make available the dead space that exists around radiators by using underfloor heating, which can surprisingly be around 10% of the area of a room. It does not matter if you've got a carpet in your living room, a tiled bathroom or a wooden kitchen floor; there are types of underfloor heating to suit your situation. It's also possible to install underfloor heating in exterior areas of your property in Keynsham like summerhouses, garages or patios.
Healthier Air Quality: With gentle heat rising from the floor upwards, underfloor heating produces what is known as, radiant heat, which reduces the thermal air currents around a room. This in turn minimises the quantity of dust and pollen circulating around your home, establishing a better and healthier environment.
Exactly how much work you wish to do on your property in Keynsham, can determine what sort of underfloor heating is better you. With their ease of installation and simpler design, electric underfloor heating systems may be more suitable for small projects in Keynsham. Electric underfloor systems are also more easily installed into existing buildings in Keynsham where retrofitting is required. If you are laying a brand new floor in a restoration project or new build home, water underfloor heating could be a more suitable option.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
The simplest and quickest underfloor heating system to put in is an electric mat system, which simply needs a link-up to a suitable thermostat and electric mains supply within your home in Keynsham. It is suitable for all heating projects and can be retrofitted in existing properties without any issues. If you are converting a loft or have a spare room which doesn't get used every day it can sometimes be the ideal option.
In a time span of just half an hour a system of electric heating mats can be installed. The heating mats are supplied in rolls which are spread out on the insulating material or sub-floor, and all that is left to do is have them connected to an appropriate electricity mains supply by an experienced person. Different styles of heating mat are on the market for different floor surfaces and your underfloor heating installer in Keynsham will be able to give you some guidance on which type is right for your situation.
In awkward shaped areas where cutting ready-made mats to the right size could be a problem, loose cable heating wire is generally used. An insulating pad is spread out and a single cable heating element is mounted onto it in runs before it's covered by the floor finish. Once installed the heating cable is linked up to an appropriate electric spur and a room based thermostat by a certified electrician.
Each individual room of your property in Keynsham can have standalone electric underfloor heating installed, or they could all be integrated with a "whole house" system with a single point of control. If you have a smart home in Keynsham, or are considering an installation of smart thermostats or other devices, electric underfloor heating can easily be integrated into your design plans.
WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN KEYNSHAM
Water fed underfloor heating systems, also known as wet floor or hydronic systems employ hot water to warm your house. The equipment can be linked to a traditional boiler if you have already got one installed, or are just a effective when used in conjunction with air or ground source heat pumps in newer builds.
Installing a wet floor system increases the height of your floor as it is placed into a thermal screed poured over the subfloor. Due to this fact, a lot of underfloor installer recommend water systems more for new builds in Keynsham, but for older properties you can purchase thin pipe options which could be suitable. Over the last few years these wet systems are becoming increasingly popular as a method of "whole home" heating in Keynsham. Their lower operating costs, greater thermal effect and efficiency of heating rooms are all contributing factors in the popularity of underfloor heating installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
build properties in Keynsham are starting to use hybrid systems of both electric and water underfloor heating in new build houses. Areas with higher energy requirements like cellars and ground floors will have a water underfloor system, whilst upstairs rooms, lofts and attic spaces use an electric solution. The best efficiency for a whole house installation can be precisely adapted to meet the needs of any house by using a hybrid system.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
It is crucial to get a heat loss survey of your dwelling in Keynsham before engaging in any installation. An architect or accredited heating engineer will conduct the on-site survey to ascertain if any extra levels of insulation are required and the size of heating system you will need. Internal living spaces will have different wattage needs than that of high temperature loss locations, such as a conservatory or uninsulated room. The size, shape and heating requirements of the water pipes or electric mats will be based on this survey and is a vital part of the design procedure.
In most underfloor installations insulating boards will have to be positioned beneath the mats or pipes to reduce thermal heat loss into the sub-floor. The generated heat is then "pushed" upwards instead of being absorbed by the floor below, and has the added benefit of increasing system efficiency and reducing room heat-up times.
All electrical link-ups must be performed by a Part P certified NICEIC electrician, but electrical mats and water pipes can be laid by any capable DIY person. As is the case with any electrical and plumbing installations in Keynsham, the recommendation is to use a professional service for the guarantees and safety that are included within the installation process. Servicing, warranties and the quality of aftercare are significant factors to consider from any Keynsham contractor who offers underfloor heating equipment and installation.
Existing property owners in Keynsham who are considering underfloor heating should concentrate their attention on electric systems, because of their simple installation and reduced floor thickness needs. Due to the extra flooring height demands for water fed underfloor heating they're better suited to new build projects or properties having major restoration works completed.
Either of these kinds of underfloor heating will save you some money on conventional heating methods, and provide you with a consistent quantity of heat which is easy to monitor and control.
Regardless of your needs; "whole home" heating, or installation in a single room, underfloor heating is an ideal option when replacing your existing heating system.
