Underfloor Heating Haywards Heath West Sussex (RH16): An efficient and cost effective way to warm your property in Haywards Heath, is to install underfloor heating. It can be employed as an alternative source of heating alongside radiators, or can be used as a whole house system to replace radiators and other heating solutions. Underfloor heating is available in two primary forms: electric or warm water systems.
Whatever installation you opt for, electric and wet, you will have uniform heating from the floor upward which is efficient and effective. Underfloor heating consumes less power than a standard radiator heating system as it doesn't have to run at such a high temperature. In typical circumstances a correctly sized and designed underfloor heating system runs at approximately 25-30 degrees Celsius, whereas a centrally heated radiator requires a working temperature of approximately 65 and 75 degrees C to heat a room of similar dimensions.
THE BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN HAYWARDS HEATH
Uniform & Consistent Heat: A hot water radiator heats the air directly next to it and uses convection to warm the whole room, producing cool spots. With underfloor systems, the heating mats or pipes are spread across the whole floor area to provide a consistent and uniform heat which rises upwards from the floor throughout the room.
Cheaper Running Costs: Underfloor heating systems are cheaper run because they use less energy for the warmth benefits of a conventional central heating system, which also means they are more environmentally friendly.
Convenience of Use: Energy use and temperature are managed by a programmable digital thermostat, which can be connected to smart phone, in both water and electric installations. This can be pre-programmed in line with your situation at various times of day or season, giving you complete control over your heating.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: Electrical underfloor heating systems require virtually no maintenance and will provide you with several years of hassle free use. To keep a water fed underfloor heating system working at its optimum efficiency only occasional checks are needed, compared with a radiator heated system which frequently need to be flushed and bled. The lower operating temperatures also puts far less stress on gas boilers and alternative heating systems (ground/air source heat pumps etc), therefore making them more reliable and longer lasting.
Perfect For Any Room: Smaller rooms can appear bigger by making available the ten percent or so of wasted space around traditional hot water radiators which cannot be used, by installing underfloor heating. It matters not if you have a carpet in your lounge, a wooden kitchen floor or a tiled bathroom; there are types of underfloor heating to suit your choice of floor covering. You can even go with fully waterproof exterior underfloor heating for warming up your garage, summer house or patio in Haywards Heath.
Better Air Quality: With gentle warmth rising from the floor, an underfloor heating system creates what is termed, radiant heat, which cuts down on the thermal air currents around a room. This in turn reduces the volume of pollen and dust moving around the room, establishing a much healthier environment.
Exactly how much work you want to undertake on your property in Haywards Heath, can determine which type of underfloor heating system is better you. Being easier to design and install, electric underfloor heating could be ideal for small projects in Haywards Heath. Retrofitting into an existing structure is also much easier with electric underfloor heating in Haywards Heath. If your project is a new build property or part of a major renovation, water warmed underfloor heating will be more suited, particularly if you're going to be laying a brand new sub-floor.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
Using electric heating mats or wires that are connected to a digital thermostat and a suitable mains supply, electric underfloor heating in Haywards Heath, is fast and simple to install. It can be conveniently retrofitted into existing houses and is a good option all projects. If heating is not needed on a daily basis, such as in spare rooms and loft space conversions, it's a perfect choice.
In a time span of just 30 minutes a system of electric heating mats can be installed. The heating mats are supplied in rolls which will be spread out onto the sub-floor or insulating layer, and then simply get them linked up to an appropriate mains supply by a competent electrician. Your underfloor heating installer in Haywards Heath will be delighted to offer some guidance on which thermal heating mats are most appropriate for your specific floor covering.
If you are faced with a smaller room, or perhaps an oddly shaped area where a standard mat isn't so easy to cut, loose wire can be employed instead. This calls for arranging a heating element (single cable) in "runs" onto an insulation pad onto your floor before being covered over with the flooring finish of your liking. A digital room based thermostat will be installed and the cable connected to an appropriate electric point by an experienced electrician.
You could fit electric underfloor heating as standalone units into any room, or connect it to a whole house system whereby it is controlled from a single point. If you're planning to install a smart home system in your house in Haywards Heath, it is quite possible to integrate metering and electric underfloor thermostats into your layout.
WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN HAYWARDS HEATH
Warm water underfloor heating, also often known as hydronic or wet floor systems use hot water to warm your home. They can be linked to air or ground source heat pumps, or an existing gas boiler if replacing conventional radiators.
The floor thickness is increased as wet floor systems need to be installed into the screed layer of the subfloor. Because of this, a lot of installers recommend wet floor systems more for new build properties in Haywards Heath, although for existing buildings there are slim pipe options which could be suitable. As a whole house heating strategy, water fed underfloor heating systems have become increasingly popular over the last few years. More Haywards Heath property owners are switching over to these underfloor systems due to their greater thermal effect, higher efficiency and lower operating costs when compared with conventional heating methods.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS HAYWARDS HEATH
A hybrid option combines the best features of water and electric underfloor heating. Ground floor areas and basements which have higher heating requirements utilise water floor systems, whereby bedrooms and spare rooms have electric options installed. The best efficiency for a "whole house" installation can be precisely adapted to meet the needs of any building by using a hybrid system.
PLANNING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Before commencing any underfloor heating installation it is vital that a heat loss survey is conducted on your dwelling in Haywards Heath. A survey by a certified heating engineer or architect will check for parts of your house that need additional insulation and also figure out the perfect scale of underfloor heating system for your needs. Uninsulated areas like conservatories with a higher potential for heat loss will need a greater wattage system than those of a family room or small bedroom/office space. The heating needs, layout and dimensions of the electric mats or water pipes will be determined by this detailed survey and is an essential part of the design stage.
In most underfloor installations insulating boards will have to be inserted beneath the pipes or mats to reduce thermal loss into the sub-floor. The heat generated is then literally "pushed" upwards instead of being absorbed by the floor below, and has the benefit of increasing system efficiency and decreasing heat-up times.
All electrical hook-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-yourself fanatic. As with any electrical and plumbing installations in Haywards Heath, the best advice is to use a professional service for the added guarantees and safety that come as part of the installation process. Despite the high reliability of underfloor heating systems it is necessary to look into the quantity of warranties and aftercare, such as servicing, that is offered by your installation company.
Electric underfloor heating systems are especially suited to extensions, loft conversions and existing property upgrades because of the simpler installation process, and the point that no connections to a hot water system are required. New build properties are more suited to wet floor systems that are far more easily incorporated into new floorings.
You will save money and obtain a more easily controllable and consistent method of heating with underfloor systems over that of its conventional alternatives.
Underfloor heating systems are an ideal way to warm up your whole house, or just as easily be installed into a single room or property extension.
