Underfloor Heating Todmorden West Yorkshire (OL14): Underfloor heating is an efficient and economical approach to warming your property in Todmorden. You can use underfloor heating to take the place of conventional heating techniques, like radiators, or use it to boost existing heating to help reduce cold spots in your property. You can choose between warm water or electric systems for your underfloor heating requirements.
Both wet and electric underfloor systems provide efficient and uniform heating from the floor up. They run at lower temperatures than conventional hot water radiators and consequently consume less energy. To heat a room effectively a traditional gas boiler and radiator setup will require water heated up to between 65 and 75°C, which is over two times that of the 25 to 35°C required by an underfloor heating setup.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Consistent Heat: With air being heated up next to a radiator's surface before being spread around a room, cold spots can result. The air in a room radiates upwards from its entire floor area at the same time, and is a consistent and uniform heat from floor level heating mats or pipes in an underfloor heating system.
Cheaper to Run: They work at lower temperatures to provide the same thermal benefits of a traditional central heating system, and therefore are better for the environment and less costly to run.
Convenience of Use: You can have control of heating at your fingertips in both water and electric underfloor systems with a programmable digital thermostat which in many cases can be linked to your smart phone. You will benefit from full control of your heating system, and it can even be pre-programmed to suit colder times of the day or adjust automatically to the different demands of the seasons.
Requires Little Maintenance: Giving many years of hassle free service which requires practically no maintenance, electric underfloor heating systems are a reliable form of heating your home in Todmorden. In contrast to radiators, wet underfloor heating should not need flushing or bleeding and only needs periodic checks to make sure that it's working to its optimum performance. Hot water boilers or air and ground source heat pumps will also have less pressure put upon them, making them more reliable and longer lasting.
Ideal For Any Room: The installation of underfloor heating can free-up the 10% of wasted space that's generally created by traditional radiators. Different underfloor heating techniques can be installed in kitchens, conservatories, living areas and bathrooms in Todmorden, and can work successfully with virtually any kind of floor covering, from concrete to carpets. You can even opt for fully waterproof outdoor underfloor heating for your summer house, garage or terrace in Todmorden.
Air Quality: The radiant heat that warms your room from an underfloor heating system generates less airflow through the air currents than old fashioned radiators. A better and healthier environment is created as the movement of dust and pollen in the air is reduced.
The kind of underfloor heating system which is best for you depends on exactly how much work you want to do. Electric underfloor systems in Todmorden are normally easier to design and install. They can also be simply adapted for retrofitting to an existing property in Todmorden. Water warmed underfloor systems, by their design are better used during remodelling work or in new build homes where the floors are being completely re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN TODMORDEN
An electric underfloor heating system in Todmorden is quick and easy to fit, requiring only a link-up to a thermostat and a suitable electricity mains supply. It can be conveniently retrofitted into existing buildings and is suitable for most projects. If heating isn't needed at all times, such as in attic conversions or spare rooms, it's the perfect solution.
It could take as little as thirty minutes to lay an electric heating mat system in a typical living room. Their installation only requires that they be rolled out and affixed to the insulating layer or sub-floor before being connected by an experienced person to the mains supply. Different styles of underfloor heating mats are on the market for various floor coverings and your underfloor heating company in Todmorden will be able to give you some guidance about which is better for your property.
Free form heating wire is good for awkward shaped areas or rooms which can be difficult to cut mats to the right size. An insulating pad is laid out and a heating element (single cable) is mounted upon it in runs before being covered over by the final flooring finish. A digital room based thermostat will be fitted and the cable linked up to a suitable electric spur or point by a qualified electrician.
Electric underfloor heating can be independent systems in single rooms, or can be absorbed into a whole home system with control from a single point. If you've got a smart home in Todmorden, or are considering an installation of smart thermostats or other devices, electric underfloor heating can easily be integrated into your design plans.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN TODMORDEN
Water underfloor heating, also called wet floor or hydronic systems employ hot water to effectively warm your home. These underfloor systems can be linked to a traditional gas boiler if you've currently got one installed, or can be plumbed into ground or air source heat pumps in new build homes.
The floor thickness is significantly increased as wet floor systems have to be installed into the subfloor screeding. In new build projects in Todmorden, this additional height can be allowed for in the design phase, but for older properties there are slimmer pipe solutions which keep the extra thickness to a minimum. As a method of whole house heating, water fed underfloor heating systems have grown progressively more popular in recent times. Their greater thermal effect, efficiency of heating rooms and lower running costs have all contributed to the growing number of installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR SYSTEMS IN TODMORDEN
Builders in Todmorden are starting to use hybrid systems of both electric and water underfloor heating in new build homes. Areas with greater requirements on heating energy such as cellars and ground floors will have a water based underfloor system, while upper level rooms, lofts and attics use an electric option. The heating needs of pretty much any house in Todmorden can be satisfied by means of a hybrid underfloor heating system.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
It is essential to conduct a thermal heat loss survey on your property in Todmorden before undertaking any underfloor heating installation. An architect or qualified heating engineer will complete a survey to ascertain if any extra levels of insulation are needed and what size of heating system you will need. Areas that lose a lot of heat, for example conservatories, will have greater wattage requirements than those of interior living areas. The design of your underfloor heating setup, wet, electric or hybrid, will be based upon this detailed survey which pinpoints the dimensions, layout and heating requirements of the entire installation.
Insulating boards inserted beneath the heat mats, heating cables or pipes will usually be needed to reduce any sub-floor heat losses. The heat generated is then "pushed" upwards instead of being dispersed into the floor beneath, and has the added benefit of increasing system efficiency and decreasing heat-up times.
There are DIY options for installing underfloor heating systems, although it's required that any electrical hook-ups are only made by an accredited electrician who is Part P/NICEIC qualified. As is the case with any electrical and plumbing installations in Todmorden, the best advice is to use a professional craftsman for the guarantees and safety that are included within the installation process. Even despite the high reliability of underfloor heating it's imperative that you bear in mind the quantity of warranties and aftercare support, like servicing, which is offered by your installation company.
Existing property owners in Todmorden who are considering underfloor heating should focus on electric based systems, because of their ease of installation and reduced floor thickness requirements. Because of the extra flooring requirements for water fed underfloor heating they are a better bet for new build projects or houses having major restoration works carried out.
You can save on energy bills and obtain a more easily controllable and consistent method of heating with any of these underfloor systems over their conventional counterparts.
Underfloor heating systems are an ideal way to warm up your whole home, or can just as easily be installed into an individual room or property extension.
