Underfloor Heating Walmer Kent (CT14): A cost effective and efficient way to heat your property in Walmer, is to install underfloor heating. It can be used as an alternative source of warmth in combination with radiators, or can be installed as a whole house heating system to take the place of radiators and other heating methods. You can choose between electric or water systems for your underfloor heating needs.
The benefit of an efficient and consistent heating system from the floor up, can be achieved with both warm water and electric systems. These underfloor systems don't run at the high temperatures needed by traditional forms of heating, such as radiators, and consequently require less energy to run. In normal situations a properly designed and sized underfloor heating system runs at approximately twenty five and thirty five degrees Celcius, while a gas central heating radiator requires an effective temperature of approximately 65-75 degrees Celsius to warm a room of similar dimensions.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Uniform Heat: Cold spots can a problem with regular radiators, since the air next to the radiator's surface is warmed first, before slowly spreading around the room by means of convection. The floor level heating pipes or mats of an underfloor heating setup uniformly warm up the air over the entire floor area which then radiates upwards all over the room.
Lower Running Costs: Seeing as these systems call for less of a temperature requirement to deliver the same heating benefits, they cost less to run and are more eco-friendly.
Ease of Use: Both wet and electric underfloor heating systems are managed and controlled by a programmable digital thermostat. You will benefit from total control of your heating system, and you can even pre-programme your heating to suit colder times of the day or automatically adjust to the different demands of the seasons.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: Generally giving several years of hassle free service and requiring pretty much no maintenance, electric underfloor heating systems are a reliable form of heating your home in Walmer. Water systems may be in need of occasional checks to make sure that things are working properly, however there is no flushing or air bleeding of radiators to worry about. Operating warm water underfloor heating at lower temperatures also has the benefit of placing less stress on boilers and other methods of heating (ground/air source heat pumps) giving them a longer service life and making them generally more reliable.
Ideal For Any Room: The installation of an underfloor heating system can free-up the ten percent of wasted space that is often created by traditional hot water radiators. The fact that underfloor heating can be used beneath any floor covering also makes it suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and conservatories in Walmer. There are even possibilities for outdoor underfloor heating in a garage, summer house or patio, to keep you warm right through the year in Walmer.
Better Air Quality: An underfloor heating system produces radiant heat from floor level, which minimises air currents like those caused by old fashioned hot water radiators or halogen heaters. A better and healthier environment is produced as the movement of pollen and dust particles in the air is lessened.
The kind of underfloor heating that is better for your circumstances will depend on just how much work you are willing to undertake. Electric underfloor systems in Walmer are usually quicker and simpler to install and design. Retrofitting into an existing structure is also much simpler with electric underfloor heating systems in Walmer. Water warmed underfloor heating systems, by their design are generally a better solution during remodelling work or in new build homes where floors are being completely re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN WALMER
Using electrically heated wires or mats that are connected to a thermostat and the mains supply, an electric underfloor heating system in Walmer, is quick and simple to install. It's suitable for all underfloor projects and can readily be retrofitted into existing properties. It can often be a perfect option for a loft conversion or spare room which doesn't get used all the time.
An electric heating mat system can be laid in not much more than half an hour. Simply spread out and bond the heating mat to the sub-floor or insulating layer, have it connected to the electricity supply by an experienced person, and it's all set to go. Whatever the choice of floor surface in your home in Walmer, there's a type of heating mat option to suit.
In odd shaped spaces where cutting standard mats to the appropriate size could be an issue, loose cable heating wire is generally used. An insulation pad is laid out and a heating element (single cable) is mounted onto it in runs before being covered over by the flooring finish. A digital room based thermostat will be installed and the heating cable linked up to a suitable electric spur or point by a certified electrician.
Electric underfloor heating can be standalone units in each room, or can be assimilated into a whole home system with management from a central control unit. If you're looking to install a smart home system in your property in Walmer, it is easy to integrate metering and electric underfloor thermostats into your plans.
WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
Also known as wet floor or hydronic systems, these use hot water as the source for your heating. You can use an existing boiler with these underfloor systems, or in newer builds they can easily be linked to ground or air source heat pumps.
The floor thickness is significantly increased as water fed systems have to be installed into a thermal layer of screeding. This makes water systems more suitable for new builds in Walmer, but you can get slim pipe options for retrofitting, that do not create a hugely raised floor level. As a whole house heating strategy, water fed underfloor heating systems have grown progressively more popular in recent years. Their lower running costs, higher efficiency and greater thermal effect have all contributed to the popularity of underfloor heating installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR SYSTEMS IN WALMER
builds in Walmer are increasingly using a hybrid system of both water and electric underfloor heating in new build homes. Upstairs rooms and loft conversions use electric underfloor heating, while basements and ground floors, which have greater requirements on heating energy, use a warm water system. The mixing of these two methods delivers a unique heating system with the best efficiency.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Before beginning any underfloor heating installation it's very important that a heat loss survey is performed on your property in Walmer. The on-site survey will be completed by a certified heating engineer or architect who'll ascertain the insulation needs and heating requirements of your house. Areas like uninsulated rooms or conservatories with high heat loss will need a greater wattage system than those of a small bedroom/office space or a living room. This essential part of the design stage will ascertain the size, heating needs and shape of the wet, electric or hybrid underfloor heating system.
Insulating boards inserted underneath the heat mats, pipework or heating cables will usually be necessary to eliminate the amount of thermal heat loss into the sub-floor. The heat generated is then "pushed" upwards as opposed to being absorbed into the floor below, and has the added benefit of increasing system efficiency and bringing down room heat-up times.
There are DIY possibilities for putting in underfloor heating systems, however it is essential that any electrical hook-ups are only carried out by an accredited electrician who is NICEIC/Part P qualified. It's recommended to use an experienced installation company in Walmer for all your underfloor heating needs, who'll abide by all the relevant Health and Safety procedures and offer guarantees for their work. Servicing, warranties and the quality of aftercare are significant aspects to bear in mind from any Walmer company that offers underfloor heating installation and equipment.
If you're considering installing an underfloor heating system into an older building in Walmer, it's best to look at electric systems. Warm water underfloor heating systems are better for major renovation works or new build homes where the extra flooring height can be factored in during the design phase.
Underfloor heating systems have lower running costs, are more energy efficient, are easily controlled by means of smart digital thermostats and are generally more reliable than conventional heating methods.
Whatever your prerequisites; whole house heating, or installation in a single room, underfloor heating is the perfect option when upgrading your heating system.
