Underfloor Heating Aldershot Hampshire (GU11): A cost effective and efficient way to heat your home in Aldershot, is to install underfloor heating. You can employ underfloor heating systems to completely replace traditional heating solutions, like radiators, or it can be used to complement your existing heating to reduce cold spots around your home. You can take your pick between electric or water systems for your underfloor heating requirements.
The benefit of a consistent and efficient heating system warming from the floor up, is available with either a wet or electric installation. They operate at cooler temperatures than standard hot water radiators and consequently don't use so much energy. To heat a room effectively a traditional gas boiler and radiator system will need water temperatures of between 65-75 degrees Celsius, which is over two times that of the 25 to 35 degrees Celcius required by an underfloor heating system.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Consistent Heat: With air being warmed next to a radiator's surfaces before spreading around a room, cold areas can often occur. Underfloor heating provides a uniform and consistent heat from floor level heat pipes or mats which warm up the air across an entire room at the same time.
Cheaper to Run: Underfloor systems are considerably cheaper run as they use reduced amounts of power for the warmth benefits from a traditional central heating system, which also means they are more environmentally friendly.
Usability: Both electric and water underfloor systems are controlled and managed by a dedicated digital thermostat. You will have complete control of your heating system, and you can even pre-programme your heating to suit colder times of day or automatically adjust as the seasons change.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: Generally giving many years of trouble free service which requires practically no maintenance, electric underfloor heating is a reliable kind of heating your house in Aldershot. In contrast to radiators, warm water underfloor heating shouldn't require flushing or bleeding and only needs periodic checks to ensure that it is working to its optimum efficiency. Gas boilers or other heat sources will also have less thermal load put upon them, making them generally more reliable and long lasting.
Ideal For Any Room: You can make available the wasted space around traditional hot water radiators by using underfloor heating, which can surprisingly be as much as ten percent of a room's area. It matters not if you have a tiled bathroom, a carpet in your living room or a laminate kitchen floor; there are kinds of underfloor heating system to suit your circumstances. You can even opt for fully waterproof exterior underfloor heating for warming up your terrace, garage or summerhouse in Aldershot.
Air Quality: The radiant heat that warms your rooms from underfloor heating creates less airflow via the air currents than conventional central heating radiators. A better and healthier environment is established as the circulation of dust particles and pollen in the air is lessened.
The installation of an underfloor heating system and deciding on which is right for you often depends on just how much work you wish to do on the project. Electric underfloor heating systems in Aldershot are usually quicker to install and design. Retrofitting into an existing property is also much easier with electric underfloor heating systems in Aldershot. Water based systems, by their design are a better option in new build or during remodelling work where the floors are being completely re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Using electrically heated mats or wires which are linked up to a suitable electricity mains supply and a thermostat, an electric underfloor heating system in Aldershot, is easy and quick to install. It can be easily retrofitted into existing houses and is a decent option most projects. It can be an ideal solution for a spare room or attic conversion which isn't used on an every day basis.
With installation taking not much more than half an hour, electric heating mats can be up and ready to go in a very short time. Their installation only requires that they be unrolled and stuck to the insulating surface or sub-floor before having them connected by a professional electrician to the electricity supply. Different types of underfloor heating mat are on the market for varying floor coverings and your underfloor heating installation company in Aldershot will be delighted to give you advice on which type is right for your situation.
Free form electric heating wire is good for awkward shaped areas or rooms which can be difficult to cut the mats to the right size. As the name implies, the heating element comes as one single cable which is laid in "runs" onto a substrate or insulation pad underneath your main flooring finish. A fully qualified electrician will connect the cable to an appropriate electric point or spur, in addition to putting in a digital room based thermostat.
You could fit electric underfloor heating as freestanding units into any room, or connect it to a whole house system where it is controlled from a single point. If you're planning to install a smart home system in your property in Aldershot, you can easily integrate electric underfloor thermostats and metering into your plans.
WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
Water fed underfloor heating, also referred to as wet floor or hydronic systems use hot water to effectively warm your home. They can be linked up to air or ground source heat pumps (usually found in newer builds), or a pre-existing gas boiler if replacing conventional heating radiators.
Warm water systems are installed into the flooring screed layer and as such create an increased floor thickness. Due to this fact, many underfloor heating installers recommend them more for new builds in Aldershot, but for existing homes you can purchase thin pipe options which may be suitable. These water fed systems have grown ever more popular as a strategy for whole house heating in Aldershot. Their efficiency of heating rooms, increased thermal effect and lower running costs have all contributed to the popularity of installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
A hybrid option combines the top features of water and electric underfloor heating systems. Ground floors and basements which have higher heating energy requirements utilise wet underfloor systems, whereby bedrooms and other upstairs rooms have electric options installed. The mixing of the two methods delivers a unique heating system with the best efficiency.
PLANNING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
Before starting on any underfloor heating installation it's important that a thermal heat loss survey is completed on your dwelling in Aldershot. An architect or certified heating engineer will conduct a survey to determine if any extra levels of insulation are required and what size of heating system you will be needing. Areas such as conservatories or uninsulated rooms with a higher degree of heat loss will need a greater wattage system than that of a small bedroom/office space or a lounge. The dimensions, shape and heating requirements of the electric mats or water pipes will be based upon this detailed survey and is an essential part of the design phase.
In most installations it will be required to insert insulation boards beneath the pipes or mats to help reduce thermal heat loss through the sub-floor. The generated 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 possible for an accomplished DIY enthusiast to install an underfloor heating system, but any electrical hook-ups have to be carried out by an accredited NICEIC electrician to Part P standards. A competent installation service provides complete peace of mind regarding Health and Safety, and it is recommended to use a certified installer in Aldershot for the extra safety and guarantees that this brings to your new heating system. With regards to your plans, you should also factor in the levels of aftercare, servicing and any warranty that come with your brand new underfloor heating setup.
Owners of existing homes in Aldershot who are considering underfloor heating should focus on electric systems, due to their simple installation and reduced floor thickness requirements. Due to the extra flooring height requirements for water fed underfloor heating they are a better bet for new build projects or houses having major restoration works carried out.
You will save on energy bills and get a more easily controllable and consistent level of heating with any of these underfloor systems over their conventional counterparts.
Underfloor heating systems are an effective way to warm up your whole home, or can just as readily be installed into an individual room or property extension.
