Underfloor Heating Winkfield Berkshire (SL4): An efficient and cost effective way to heat your property in Winkfield, is to install underfloor heating. Underfloor heating is adaptable in its uses, as it can be used to reduce the effect of cold spots by augmenting your existing heating, or it can take the place of the traditional radiators and be used as a whole property system of heating. There are two main kinds of underfloor heating: warm water or electric systems.
No matter what installation you choose for your house in Winkfield, water or electric, you'll have consistent heating from the floor upward which is effective and efficient. Underfloor heating consumes less power than a traditional radiator as it does not need to run at such high temperatures. To heat a room effectively a traditional gas boiler and radiator system will require water heated up to between 65 and 75 degrees C, which is more than double that of the 25 to 35 degrees Celcius needed by an underfloor heating setup.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN WINKFIELD
Uniform Heat: With air being heated close to a radiator's surfaces before spreading around a room through convection, cool areas can be produced. The floor level heating pipes or mats of an underfloor heating system uniformly and consistently warm up the air over the entire floor area which then radiates upwards all through the room.
Cheaper to Run: Underfloor systems are less expensive run since they use reduced amounts of energy for the same feeling of warmth of a traditional heating system, which also means they are more environmentally friendly.
Simplicity of Use: Both electric and wet underfloor heating systems are controlled by a digital programmable thermostat. This easily operated gadget gives you total control over your heating and can be pre-programmed to suit your particular situation.
Requires Little Maintenance: Electrical underfloor heating systems require virtually no maintenance and can provide several years of trouble free use. To keep a water underfloor heating system working at optimum performance levels only periodic inspections are needed, unlike a radiator heating system which frequently need to be bled and flushed. Operating "wet" underfloor heating at lower temperatures also puts far less load on gas boilers and alternative methods of heating (air/ground source heat pumps) meaning that they are more reliable and giving them a longer service life.
Perfect For Any Room: Smaller rooms can appear bigger by freeing up the ten percent of wasted space that exists around radiators which cannot be used, through the installation of underfloor heating. Different kinds of underfloor heating can be used in living rooms, bathrooms, conservatories and kitchens in Winkfield, and can work successfully with almost any sort of floor covering, from carpets to concrete. It is even possible to install underfloor heating in exterior spaces like garages, summerhouses or patios.
Air Quality: An underfloor heating system produces radiant heat from floor level upwards, which minimises the thermal air currents caused by conventional radiators or electric halogen heaters. This produces a healthier and better environment by minimising the volume of pollen and dust particles which circulate around your home.
The sort of underfloor heating system that's best for you will be determined by the amount of work you are willing to undertake. Electric underfloor heating systems in Winkfield are usually quicker and less complicated to design and install. They can also be simply adapted for retrofitting to an existing property in Winkfield. If you are laying a brand new floor in a new build or through renovation works, water based underfloor heating is a better alternative.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Using electric heating wires or mats which are connected to a thermostat and a suitable mains supply, electric underfloor heating in Winkfield, is fast and simple to install. Existing structures can undergo the retrofitting of electric underfloor systems into individual rooms or the entire property with very few problems in most cases. It is the ideal kind of heating for spare rooms and loft conversions which don't need to be heated when they aren't in use.
It could take as little as thirty minutes to install an electric heating mat in a typical living room. Their installation only involves them being rolled out and adhered to the insulating material or sub-floor before being connected by an experienced person to the mains power supply. Different types of underfloor heating mat are available for various floor surfaces and your underfloor heating company in Winkfield will be delighted to give you some guidance about which sort is better for your home.
If you've got a smaller room, or perhaps an oddly shaped area where a standard mat isn't suitable, loose wire can be employed for the same effect. An insulation pad is laid out and a heating element (single cable) is mounted upon it in runs before it's covered by the floor finish. An experienced electrician will connect the heating cable to an appropriate electric point or spur, and at the same time put in a room based thermostat.
Each room of your property in Winkfield can have a freestanding electric underfloor heating unit installed, or multiple units can all be connected to a "whole home" system with a central control device. Electric underfloor heating can easily be integrated into smart homes in Winkfield to give wireless remote control of thermostat temperatures and metering information.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN WINKFIELD
Also known as wet floor or hydronic systems, these employ hot water as the source for heating. These systems can be linked to a conventional gas or oil fired boiler if you have one already installed, or can be plumbed into air or ground source heat pumps in new build homes.
Installing a water fed system increases the floor height as it is placed into a thermal screed over your subfloor. This makes water based systems more suited to new builds in Winkfield, however you can get thin pipe options for retrofitting, without creating a hugely raised floor area. The use of wet systems is increasing as a method of whole house heating in Winkfield. This is largely down to their increased thermal effect, lower running costs and efficiency of heating rooms.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR SYSTEMS IN WINKFIELD
A mixture of electric and water underfloor heating can be used in the creation of a hybrid underfloor setup. Upstairs rooms use electric underfloor heating, while ground floors and cellars, which have higher heating energy requirements, use a warm water system. The best efficiency for a "whole home" installation can be perfectly adapted to meet the needs of any house with a hybrid system.
PLANNING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
Before commencing any installation it is crucial that a thermal heat loss survey is completed on your home in Winkfield. A qualified heating engineer or architect will conduct the on-site survey to ascertain any extra levels of insulation necessary and the size of heating system you will be needing. Areas such as conservatories or uninsulated rooms with high heat loss will require a greater wattage system than that of a lounge or small bedroom/office space. This crucial part of the design stage will ascertain the heating requirements, size and structure of the electric, hybrid or water underfloor heating system.
Insulating panels inserted underneath the heat mats, pipework or heating cables may be necessary to eliminate any sub-floor heat losses. This insulation has the benefit of increasing efficiency and decreasing heat-up times by literally "pushing" the heat up into your room, instead of it being absorbed by the floor beneath.
All electrical connections have to be performed by a Part P certified NICEIC electrician, but water pipes and electrical mats can be laid by any capable DIY fanatic. As is the case with most electrical and plumbing installations in Winkfield, the recommendation is to use a professional craftsman for the added guarantees and safety that come as part of the installation process. Despite the overall reliability of underfloor heating it's important to think about the quantity of warranty and aftercare, like servicing, offered by your installation company in Winkfield.
Electric underfloor heating systems are particularly suitable for extensions, older property upgrades and attic conversions thanks to the easier installation process needing no connection to a hot water system or boiler. Water fed underfloor heating systems are better integrated into new build properties or major renovation works where the additional flooring allowance can be factored in during the design phase.
Underfloor heating systems have lower running costs, are more energy efficient, are easily managed by means of smart digital thermostats and are generally more reliable than conventional heating methods.
Regardless of your requirements; whole house heating, or installation in a single room, underfloor heating is a perfect option when modernising your heating setup.
