Underfloor Heating Sheerness Kent (ME12): Underfloor heating is an efficient and cost effective approach to warming your property in Sheerness. You can employ underfloor heating systems to completely replace traditional heating methods, such as radiators, or it can be used to supplement your existing heating to reduce cold spots in your home. Underfloor heating is available in 2 main forms: electric or warm water systems.
Whatever underfloor installation you opt for, electric or warm water, you will get a consistent level of warming from the floor up which is effective and efficient. These underfloor systems don't run at the higher temperatures required by traditional forms of heating, such as radiators, and consequently need less energy. To heat a room effectively a traditional gas boiler and radiator setup will require water temperatures of between 65 and 75°C, which is more than two times that of the 25-35°C required by an underfloor heating system.
BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN SHEERNESS
Uniform & Consistent Heat: With air being warmed close to a radiator's surfaces before being spread around a room through convection, cool areas can be produced. The floor level heating mats or pipes of an underfloor heating system uniformly and consistently warm the air over the entire floor area which then rises all over the room.
Cheaper Running Costs: They work at lower temperatures to give you the same heating benefits of a conventional central heating system, and therefore are better for the environment and less expensive to run.
Convenience of Use: You have control of your heating at your fingertips in both electric and water underfloor installations with a dedicated digital thermostat which in many cases can be connected with your smart phone. This easily operated device gives you complete control over your heating needs and can be pre-programmed to suit your circumstances.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: With several years of trouble free service and requiring pretty much no maintenance, electric underfloor heating is a reliable kind of heating your house in Sheerness. To keep a wet underfloor heating system working at optimum performance levels only periodic checks are required, unlike a radiator central heating system which needs flushing and bleeding. Water based underfloor heating systems are also longer lasting and more reliable because they put less stress on existing gas boilers and additional heating methods.
Ideal For Any Room: Smaller rooms can seem bigger by making available the 10% or so of dead space around traditional hot water radiators which can't really be used, by installing underfloor heating. It matters not if you've got a laminate kitchen floor, a carpet in your lounge or a tiled bathroom; there are types of underfloor heating to suit your situation. You can even choose fully waterproof outdoor underfloor heating for warming up your summerhouse, garage or patio in Sheerness.
Better Air Quality: With gentle heat rising from the floor, underfloor heating produces what is called, radiant heat, which reduces the amount of the air currents around a room. This establishes a better environment by minimising the quantity of pollen and dust particles which can circulate around your property.
The sort of underfloor heating which is best for you will depend on the amount of work you wish to do. Electric underfloor heating systems in Sheerness are normally quicker to design and install. They can also be easily adapted for retrofitting to a pre-existing property in Sheerness. If your project is part of a major renovation or is a new build, water warmed underfloor heating will be more appropriate, especially if you're going to be laying a brand new sub-floor.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN SHEERNESS
Using electrically heated mats or wires that are connected to a suitable mains supply and a digital thermostat, electric underfloor heating in Sheerness, is quick and simple to fit. Existing buildings can have electric underfloor systems retrofitted into individual rooms or the entire property without too much trouble at all. If you're converting a loft space or have a spare room which doesn't get used all the time it can sometimes be the perfect alternative.
In as little as 30 minutes an electric heating mat can be installed. Their installation only involves them being unrolled and affixed to the insulating material or sub-floor before having them connected by a qualified electrician to the electricity mains supply. Regardless of the floor surface that exists in your property in Sheerness, there is a style of heating mat available for you.
Loose cable heating wire is useful for unusually shaped rooms or areas where cutting standard mats to the correct size can be difficult. This entails laying a single cable heating element in "runs" onto an insulation pad on your sub-floor before being covered by the floor covering of your choosing. A professional electrician will link up the heating cable to a suitable electric spur or point, in addition to putting in a room based thermostat.
Electric underfloor heating can be installed as a whole house system which is controlled from a single point, or can be fitted independently into individual rooms as standalone units. If you've got a smart home in Sheerness, or are contemplating an installation of smart thermostats or other gadgets, electric underfloor heating systems can be easily integrated into your proposed design.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN SHEERNESS
Water underfloor heating systems, also often known as hydronic or wet floor systems employ hot water to warm your home. These underfloor systems can be connected to a conventional boiler if you have currently got one installed, or can be plumbed into ground or air source heat pumps in newer builds.
Water fed systems are installed into the flooring screed and produce a greater thickness of floor. Due to this, many underfloor heating installers recommend wet floor systems more for new builds in Sheerness, although for older buildings you can purchase thin pipe alternatives which might be suitable. These water based systems are becoming increasingly more popular as an alternative strategy for "whole house" heating in Sheerness. This is largely thanks to their lower running costs, higher efficiency and increased thermal effect.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
build houses in Sheerness are increasingly using a hybrid system of both electric and water underfloor heating in new build houses. Ground floors and cellars which have greater requirements on heating energy utilise water floor systems, whilst bedrooms and spare rooms have electric options installed. The efficiency of a "whole house" installation can be uniquely adapted to meet the needs of any house by using a hybrid system.
PLANNING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
Before beginning any underfloor heating installation it's very important that a heat loss survey is completed on your house in Sheerness. This on-site survey will be completed by an architect or professional heating engineer who will ascertain the insulation needs and heating requirements of your home. High areas of heat loss, for example conservatories and orangeries, will need a greater wattage than those of better insulated, interior living areas. The design of the underfloor heating system, hybrid, electric or water, will be based upon this detailed survey which verifies the size, layout and heating needs of the entire installation.
In most underfloor installations insulation boards will have to be positioned beneath the pipes or mats to reduce thermal heat loss through the sub-floor. The heat is then literally "pushed" upwards as opposed to being absorbed by the floor below, and has the added benefit of increasing system efficiency and lowering room heat-up times.
It's quite possible for an accomplished do-it-yourself fanatic to install an underfloor heating system, but any electrical link-ups must be done by an accredited NICEIC electrician trained to Part P specifications. As is the case with any plumbing and electrical installations in Sheerness, the recommendation is to use a professional service for the safety and guarantees that are included within the installation process. With regards to your plans, you should also factor in the levels of servicing, warranties and aftercare that come with your brand new underfloor heating setup.
Electric underfloor heating systems are particularly suited to existing property upgrades, loft conversions and extensions thanks to the simpler installation process needing no connection to a hot water boiler or system. New build homes are more suitable for wet floor systems that are much more easily incorporated into new floors.
You will save money and get a more uniform and easily controllable level of heating with underfloor systems over that of its conventional counterparts.
Underfloor heating systems are an excellent way to warm up your whole house, or can just as readily be fitted into an individual room, loft conversion or extension to your property.
