Underfloor Heating Brackley Northamptonshire (NN13): Underfloor heating is an efficient and economical technique for warming your property in Brackley. You can employ underfloor heating systems to replace conventional heating solutions, such as radiators, or it can be used to complement existing heating to help reduce cold spots in your property. You can choose between electric or water systems for your underfloor heating requirements.
Both electric and water underfloor systems provide efficient and consistent heating from the floor up. These systems don't run at the higher temperatures needed by conventional forms of heating, like for example radiators, and consequently use less energy. In normal situations a properly designed and sized underfloor heating system operates at about 25-30 degrees Celsius, while a water heated radiator requires a temperature of somewhere between 65 and 75 degrees C to heat a similarly sized room.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Consistent Heat: Cool spots can frequently be created with traditional hot water radiators, as the air next to the radiator's surface is warmed initially, before it slowly spreads around the room by convection. Floor level heating pipes or mats warm the whole floor area in a uniform and consistent way with an underfloor heating system.
Lower Running Costs: They work at lower temperatures to offer you the same thermal benefits of a conventional system, and therefore are better for the environment and cheaper to run.
Usability: Both water and electric underfloor heating systems are controlled and managed by a digital thermostat. This simple to operate device gives you complete control over your heating requirements and can even be pre-programmed to suit your particular needs.
Requires Little Maintenance: Being practically maintenance-free and offering many years of reliable service an electric powered underfloor system could be ideal for heating your house in Brackley. To keep a warm water underfloor heating system working at optimum performance levels only periodic checks are needed, in contrast to a radiator central heating system which frequently need to be bled and flushed. Warm water underfloor systems are also more reliable and longer lasting as they exert less pressure on existing gas boilers and alternative heating methods.
Perfect For Any Room: Radiators take up an astonishing amount of wasted space in a room, approximately 10% on average, which can be made available with an underfloor heating installation. The advantage that underfloor heating can be used beneath pretty much any floor covering also makes it suitable for bathrooms, living areas, conservatories and kitchens in Brackley. It's also possible to use underfloor heating for outdoor spaces like garages, summer houses or terraces.
Better Air Quality: An underfloor heating system produces radiant heat from floor level, which minimises the air currents caused by halogen heaters or old fashioned hot water radiators. A more healthy environment is established as the circulation of dust particles and pollen in the air is reduced.
Exactly how much work you want to do on your property in Brackley, can help to dictate what type of underfloor heating is best you. Being quicker and less complicated to design and install, electric underfloor heating is perfect for small projects in Brackley. They can also be easily adapted for retrofitting to an existing dwelling in Brackley. Water fed systems, by their design are a better alternative during remodelling work or in new build homes where flooring is being completely re-laid.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN BRACKLEY
An electric underfloor heating system in Brackley is fast and simple to install, needing only a link-up to a digital thermostat and a suitable mains supply. It can be readily retrofitted into existing buildings and is a good solution pretty much all projects. It can often be an excellent choice for a loft conversion or spare room which isn't getting used all the time.
In barely more than 30 minutes a series of electric heating mats can be laid. The heating mats come in rolls which are spread out onto the sub-floor or insulating material, and then simply have them linked up to a suitable power supply by an experienced electrician. Your underfloor heating installer in Brackley will be delighted to offer some guidance on which underfloor heating mats are more suited to your specific flooring surface.
In odd shaped rooms or spaces where cutting ready-made mats to the appropriate size could be a problem, loose cable electrical heating wire is used. This entails laying a heating element (single cable) in runs onto an insulation pad onto your sub-floor before being covered by the flooring finish of your choice. Once laid out the cable is connected to a suitable electric spur and a room based thermostat by a fully qualified electrician.
Electric underfloor heating can be installed as separate units in each room, or can be integrated with a "whole house" system with control from a single point. If you happen to have a smart home in Brackley, or are thinking about installing smart thermostats or other equipment, electric underfloor heating systems can easily be integrated into your proposed design.
WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN BRACKLEY
Water fed underfloor heating systems, also often known as hydronic or wet floor systems use hot water to effectively warm your house. You can use a pre-existing boiler with these systems, or in new build houses they can easily be linked up to air or ground source heat pumps.
The thickness of the floor is significantly increased as water fed systems are installed into the screed layer of the subfloor. In Brackley new build homes this extra height can be absorbed in the design phase, but for existing builds there are slender pipe solutions which keep the extra thickness to the bare minimum. The use of wet systems is now increasing as a method of "whole home" heating in Brackley. Their lower operating costs, increased thermal effect and efficiency of heating rooms have all contributed to the growing number of underfloor heating installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN BRACKLEY
A hybrid solution uses the most effective attributes of water and electric underfloor heating systems. Warm water systems are installed on ground floors and basements which have higher energy requirements, whilst upstairs rooms use electric underfloor heating. This formula offers the highest level of efficiency with the maximum heating benefits.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION
Before starting on any installation it is vital that a heat loss survey is conducted on your dwelling in Brackley. The survey will be carried out by an architect or certified heating engineer who will establish the heating requirements and insulation needs of your home. High areas of heat loss, for instance conservatories and orangeries, will need a larger wattage than those of better insulated, interior living areas. The design of the underfloor heating setup, electric, hybrid or water, will be based upon this detailed survey which ascertains the heating needs, structure and dimensions of the whole installation.
Insulating boards inserted underneath the heating cables, heat mats or pipework may be required to help reduce any sub-floor heat loss. The heat generated is then literally "pushed" upwards instead of being dispersed into the floor beneath, and has the added benefit of increasing system efficiency and reducing room warm-up times.
There are DIY options for putting in an underfloor heating system, but it's essential that any electrical link-ups are only made by a certified electrician who is Part P/NICEIC qualified. As is the case with most plumbing and electrical installations in Brackley, the best advice is to use a professional tradesman for the safety and guarantees that are included within the installation process. Even with the high reliability of underfloor heating systems it's still imperative that you look at the level of warranties and aftercare, such as servicing, that is provided by your installation company in Brackley.
Electric underfloor heating systems are especially suitable for existing property upgrades, loft conversions and extensions thanks to the simpler installation process, and the point that no connections to a hot water system are required. New build homes are more suitable for water fed systems which are much more easily incorporated into newly laid floorings.
You will save money and obtain a more easily controllable and consistent level of heating with underfloor systems over that of its traditional counterparts.
Whatever your requirements; whole house heating, or installation in an individual room, underfloor heating is the perfect choice when updating your existing heating system.
