Underfloor Heating Ascot Berkshire (SL5): A cost effective and efficient way to heat your home in Ascot, is to install underfloor heating. Underfloor heating is adaptable in its uses, it can be used to eliminate cold spots by supplementing your current heating arrangement, or it can be used as a substitute for the traditional radiators and be installed as a heating system for the whole house. You can choose between warm water or electric systems for your underfloor heating needs.
The benefit of a uniform and efficient heating system from the floor up, is available with both warm water and electric installations. They operate at cooler temperatures than traditional radiators and as such don't require so much energy. In normal situations a properly sized and designed underfloor heating system operates at around twenty five and thirty five degrees Celcius, where a gas central heating radiator requires a working temperature of something like 65-75 degrees Celsius to heat a room of the same size.
BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Consistent and Uniform Heat: Cool spots can result with regular radiators, as the air next to the radiator's surface is heated up initially, before slowly spreading around the room by means of convection. Underfloor heating guarantees a consistent and uniform heat from floor level heat mats or pipes which heat the air throughout the whole of the room at the same time.
Costs Less to Run: They work at lower temperatures to give you the equivalent heating benefits of a conventional central heating system, and therefore are cheaper to run and more eco-friendly.
Ease of Use: You have control of heating close at hand in both electric and wet underfloor systems with a programmable digital thermostat which on most systems can be linked with your smart phone. This simple to operate gadget offers you complete control over your heating system and can be pre-programmed to suit your particular circumstances.
Requires Little Maintenance: Being virtually maintenance-free and providing years of reliable service an electric powered underfloor system could be ideal for heating your home in Ascot. 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 performance. Water fed underfloor systems are also longer lasting and more reliable because they put less demand on existing gas boilers and additional heating methods.
Perfect For Any Room: Smaller rooms can appear larger by making available the 10% or so of dead space that exists around traditional radiators which cannot be used, through the installation of underfloor heating. It does not matter if you've got a carpeted lounge, a tiled bathroom or a wooden kitchen floor; there are different types of underfloor heating to suit your circumstances. You can even go with a completely waterproof underfloor heating solution for warming up your summerhouse, garage or terrace in Ascot.
Better Air Quality: With gentle warmth rising from the floor up, an underfloor heating system generates what is termed, radiant heat, which cuts down on the thermal air currents around a room. This in turn minimises the amount of pollen and dust circulating around your home, creating a healthier environment.
Precisely how much work you're prepared to do on your property in Ascot, can help to determine what type of underfloor heating system is better you. Electric underfloor heating systems in Ascot are generally quicker and less complicated to design and install. Retrofitting into an existing building is also a lot easier with electric underfloor heating systems in Ascot. Water fed underfloor systems, by their design are better used during renovation work or in new build houses where flooring is being completely re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
Using electrically heated wires or mats that are connected to a suitable mains supply and a thermostat, an electric underfloor heating system in Ascot, is quick and simple to install. It is a good option for all heating projects and can readily be retrofitted into existing houses. It is the perfect sort of heating for attic conversions and spare rooms which do not need heating if they're not in use.
An electric heating mat can be installed in as little as thirty minutes. The heating mats come in rolls which are spread out on the insulating layer or sub-floor, and then simply have them connected to a suitable electricity supply by an experienced electrician. Whatever the floor surface that exists in your house in Ascot, there is a style of underfloor heating mat solution for your situation.
In odd shaped areas where cutting ready-made mats to the correct size could be difficult, free form heating wire is generally used. An insulating pad is laid out and a heating element (single cable) is mounted upon it in runs before it's covered over by the flooring finish. A digital room based thermostat will be installed and the cable linked up to an appropriate electric point by a competent electrician.
Electric underfloor heating can be installed as a whole house system that's controlled from a single point, or can be fitted independently into specific rooms as standalone devices. Electric underfloor heating can easily be incorporated into smart homes in Ascot to offer full wireless remote control of thermostat temperatures and metering.
WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN ASCOT
Also termed hydronic or wet floor heating systems, these employ hot water as the source for heating. They can be linked up to air or ground source heat pumps (usually found in new build houses), or an existing gas or oil fired boiler if replacing conventional heating radiators.
Installing a warm water system significantly increases the height of your floor since it is placed into a layer of thermal screeding above your subfloor. Due to this fact, many underfloor installer recommend water fed systems more for new builds in Ascot, however for older homes you can purchase slim pipe alternatives which could be suitable. As a whole house heating technique, water underfloor heating systems have become ever more popular in recent times. People are changing to these underfloor systems owing to their lower running costs, efficiency of heating rooms and increased thermal effect compared to conventional heating methods.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS ASCOT
A combination of electric and water underfloor heating methods can be used in the creation of a hybrid underfloor setup. Ground floor areas and basements which have greater heating requirements utilise water underfloor systems, while spare rooms and bedrooms have electric solutions installed. The heating needs of pretty much any home in Ascot can be satisfied through the use of a hybrid underfloor system.
PLANNING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
It is essential to get a thermal heat loss survey of your property in Ascot before undertaking any underfloor heating installation. An accredited heating engineer or architect will carry out the survey to establish any extra levels of insulation necessary and the size of heating system you will need. Areas like uninsulated rooms or conservatories with a higher degree of heat loss will need a greater wattage system than that of a family room or small bedroom/office space. The size, heating needs and structure of the electric mats or water pipes will be based upon this detailed survey and is a crucial part of the design phase.
In most installations insulation panels will need to be placed beneath the mats or pipes to reduce heat loss through the sub-floor. Using this insulation material boosts system efficiency by reducing the warm-up or heating time by literally "pushing" the generated heat up into the room.
All electrical link-ups have to be completed by a Part P certified NICEIC electrician, but electric mats and water pipes can be laid by any skilled do-it-yourselfer. A reliable installation specialist will provide you with complete peace of mind regarding Health and Safety, and it's advised to use a certified installer in Ascot for the extra guarantees and safety this brings to your new heating system. Even with the overall reliability of underfloor heating it's still necessary to bear in mind the level of warranties and aftercare, such as servicing, which is provided by your installation company.
Existing property owners in Ascot considering underfloor heating should focus their attention on electric powered systems, due to their simple installation and reduced floor thickness requirements.
