Both warm water and electric installations provide consistent and efficient heating from the floor up. They operate at cooler temperatures than traditional radiators and therefore don't need so much energy. In normal situations a properly designed and sized underfloor heating system operates at around 25 to 35 degrees Celcius, whereas a water heated radiator requires an effective temperature of between sixty five and seventy five degrees Celcius to warm a same sized room.

BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Underfloor Heating Newtownards Northern Ireland (BT22)

Uniform & Consistent Heat: A hot water radiator warms the air directly next to it and depends on convection to warm the whole room, producing cold spots. The air in a room radiates upwards from its entire floor area simultaneously, and is a consistent and uniform heat from floor level heating pipes or mats with an underfloor heating system.

Lower Running Costs: Because these underfloor heating systems have a lower temperature requirement to deliver the same thermal benefits, they cost less to run and are better for the environment.

Ease of Use: You have control of heating at your fingertips in both warm water and electric underfloor systems with a dedicated digital thermostat which in most cases can be linked to your smart phone. You'll have full control of your heating system, and you can even pre-programme your heating to suit cooler times of the day or automatically adjust with the change of the seasons.

Requires Little Maintenance: With practically no maintenance demands, electric underfloor systems are usually hassle free and will provide many years of service. To keep "wet" underfloor heating working at optimum performance levels only occasional inspections are needed, in contrast to a radiator system which needs to be bled and flushed fairly regularly. Running water based underfloor heating at lower temperatures also puts far less stress on gas boilers and alternative methods of heating (ground/air source heat pumps) giving them a longer service life and making them generally more reliable.

Perfect For Any Room: Traditional radiators take up a surprising amount of space in a room, approximately ten percent on average, which can be freed up for use by installing an underfloor heating system. Different methods of underfloor heating can be used in lounges, kitchens, conservatories and bathrooms in Newtownards, and can combine with just about any style of floor covering, from hard flooring to carpets. It is even possible to install underfloor heating in exterior areas of your property in Newtownards such as summer houses, garages or patios.

Better Air Quality: An underfloor heating system produces radiant heat from floor level upwards, which reduces the air currents caused by conventional central heating radiators or electric halogen heaters. This reduces the volume of dust and pollen moving around the room, creating a better and healthier environment.

Underfloor Heating Quotes in Newtownards Northern Ireland

The amount of work you wish to do on your home in Newtownards, can determine what kind of underfloor heating system is more suitable for you. Electric underfloor systems in Newtownards are typically easier and quicker to design and install. Electric underfloor systems are also more easily installed into pre-existing properties in Newtownards where retrofitting is necessary. If you're laying a new floor in a renovation project or new build home, water based underfloor heating will be a more suitable option.

ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN NEWNewtownardsARDS

The fastest and easiest underfloor heating to install is an electric mat or wire system, which simply requires a link-up to an appropriate digital thermostat and mains power supply within your home in Newtownards. It can be easily retrofitted into existing buildings and is suitable for most projects. If heating isn't required on a daily basis, for example in loft conversions or spare rooms, it's a perfect option.

Electric Underfloor Heating Near Newtownards Northern Ireland

With the installation process taking barely more than half an hour, electric heating mats can be up and working in the blink of an eye. Their installation only requires that they be unrolled and affixed to the sub-floor or insulating layer before being connected by a qualified electrician to the electricity mains supply. Different kinds of underfloor heating mats are on the market for different floor coverings and your underfloor company in Newtownards will be able to advise on which type is right for your circumstances.

In awkward shaped areas or rooms where cutting ready-made mats to the appropriate size could be an issue, free form electric heating wire is generally used. An insulating pad is laid down and a single cable heating element is fixed upon it in "runs" before being covered by the floor finish. A competent electrician will link up the heating cable to an appropriate electric spur or point, along with installing a digital room based thermostat.

Electric underfloor heating can be installed as standalone units in single rooms, or can be integrated with a "whole house" system with management from a central unit. Electric underfloor heating can be easily built into smart homes in Newtownards to provide full wireless remote control of metering and thermostat temperatures.

WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS IN NEWNewtownardsARDS

Hot water is employed to heat these underfloor heating systems, which are also often termed as hydronic or wet floor systems by various producers. The equipment can be connected to a traditional gas or oil fired boiler if you've already got one installed, or can be plumbed into air or ground source heat pumps in newer builds.

Water Underfloor Heating Newtownards (BT22)

The floor thickness is significantly increased as water based systems have to be installed into a thermal layer of screeding. In Newtownards new builds this increased height can be allowed for in the design phase, but for older properties there are slimmer pipe solutions which keep the extra thickness requirement to a minimum. As a strategy for whole house heating, water underfloor systems have become ever more popular over the last few years. This is largely thanks to their increased thermal effect, efficiency of heating rooms and lower operating costs.

HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS NEWNewtownardsARDS

A hybrid option uses the best attributes of electric and water underfloor heating systems. Ground floors and cellars which have higher heating energy requirements utilise water underfloor systems, whereby bedrooms and spare rooms have electric underfloor heating installed. The mixing of the two methods provides a unique heating system with the best efficiency.

DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Before commencing any installation it's vital that a heat loss survey is carried out on your property in Newtownards. An architect or qualified heating engineer will conduct a survey to establish any extra levels of insulation necessary and the size of heating system you will need. Internal living areas will have different wattage requirements than those of high heat loss locations, such as conservatory or garage conversion. The heating requirements, dimensions and structure of the water pipes or electric mats will be based on this detailed survey and is a crucial part of the design procedure.

Insulating boards placed beneath the heating cables, heat mats or pipework may be necessary to lessen the amount of thermal heat loss into the sub-floor. The generated heat is then "pushed" upwards as opposed to being absorbed by the floor beneath, and has the added benefit of increasing system efficiency and lowering room heat-up times.

All electrical hook-ups must be carried out by a Part P accredited NICEIC electrician, but electric mats and water pipes can be laid by any skilled do-it-yourself enthusiast. As is the case with any electrical and plumbing installations in Newtownards, the recommendation is to use a professional tradesman for the guarantees and safety that are included within the installation process. Even despite the high reliability of underfloor heating systems it's still necessary to look into the level of warranties and aftercare, like servicing, offered by your installation company.

SUMMARY

Electric underfloor heating systems are especially suited to extensions, older property upgrades and loft conversions because of the simpler installation process, and the point that no connection to a hot water system is necessary. Water fed underfloor heating is better incorporated into new build homes or major renovation works where the extra flooring allowance can be factored in at the design stage.

Underfloor heating systems are more efficient, have less running costs, are easily managed via digital thermostats and are generally more dependable than regular heating methods.

Underfloor heating systems are an ideal way to heat up your entire house, or can just as readily be fitted into an individual room, loft conversion or property extension.
