Underfloor Heating Walton-on-the-Naze Essex (CO14): Underfloor heating is an efficient and economical technique for warming up your property in Walton-on-the-Naze. You can use underfloor heating systems to completely replace conventional heating methods, such as radiators, or use it to augment your existing heating to help reduce cold spots in your home. Water or electric are the two primary kinds of underfloor heating system.
No matter what installation you opt for, electric and wet, you'll introduce consistent heating from the floor up which is efficient and effective. They run at lower temperatures than conventional radiators and therefore don't need so much energy. Typically a water heated radiator will run at a temperature of approximately 65 and 75 degrees C, while underfloor heating only needs a temperature of approximately 25 to 35 degrees Celcius to successfully warm a room of similar dimensions.
BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Consistent & Uniform Heat: A traditional hot water radiator heats the air close to the radiator's surface first, and subsequently rises before being spread slowly around the whole room which can frequently create cold spots. In the case of underfloor systems, the heating mats or pipes are spread across the entire floor to produce a consistent heat which rises upwards from the floor all around the room.
Cheaper to Run: Underfloor heating systems are less expensive run since they use less power for the warmth benefits from a traditional central heating system, thus also making them better for the environment.
Ease of Use: Both electric and wet underfloor installations are managed by a digital programmable thermostat. It can be pre-programmed to suit your situation at various times of day or year, giving you complete control over your heating.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: Being practically maintenance-free and offering several years of reliable service an electrical underfloor system could be perfect for heating your house in Walton-on-the-Naze. Water based heating systems might require occasional checks to make sure things are all working properly, however there is no need for air bleeding of radiators or flushing. Water underfloor systems are also longer lasting and more reliable because they put less pressure on existing boilers and alternative heating methods.
Ideal For Any Room: Hot water radiators take up a surprising amount of "dead" space in a room, approximately 10% on average, which can be made available by installing an underfloor heating system. Different underfloor heating solutions can be used in bathrooms, living rooms, kitchens and conservatories in Walton-on-the-Naze, and can combine with almost any kind of floor covering, from hard flooring to carpets. You can even choose fully waterproof exterior underfloor heating for your garage, summerhouse or terrace in Walton-on-the-Naze.
Air Quality: Underfloor heating creates radiant heat from the floor up, which reduces convectional air currents caused by old fashioned radiators or halogen heaters. This minimises the volume of dust and pollen moving around your home, establishing a much better environment.

The thickness of the floor is increased as wet floor systems need to be installed into a thermal layer of screeding.

DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION
Before commencing any installation it's essential that a thermal heat loss survey is conducted on your dwelling in Walton-on-the-Naze. This on-site survey will be conducted by an architect or qualified heating engineer who'll establish the insulation needs and heating requirements of your house. Interior living areas will have different wattage demands than those of higher heat loss areas, such as a conservatory or uninsulated room. This crucial part of the design phase will ascertain the heating needs, dimensions and structure of the hybrid, wet or electric underfloor heating system.
In most underfloor heating installations it will be required to insert insulation panels beneath the mats or pipes to eliminate heat loss into the sub-floor. This insulating material has the added benefit of increasing efficiency and lowering heat-up times by literally "pushing" the heat up into the room, instead of it being absorbed by the floor below.
All electrical link-ups have to be done by a Part P qualified NICEIC electrician, but electric mats and water pipes can be installed by any skilled do-it-yourself enthusiast.
