Whatever underfloor installation you choose for your home in Widnes, wet or electric, you'll get uniform heating from the floor upward which is effective and efficient. They run at lower temperatures than traditional hot water radiators and as such consume less energy. In typical circumstances a properly sized and designed underfloor heating system operates at around 25 to 35°C, while a gas fired central heating radiator requires an effective temperature of approximately 65 and 75°C to heat a same sized room.

BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Underfloor Heating Widnes Cheshire (WA8)

Uniform Heat: With air being heated up close to a radiator's surface before spreading around a room by convection, cold areas frequently occur. Underfloor heating guarantees a uniform and consistent heat from floor level heat mats or pipes which heat the air around the whole of the room simultaneously.

Lower Running Costs: Underfloor heating systems are less expensive run because they use reduced amounts of power for the same feeling of warmth of a traditional central heating system, therefore also making them more eco-friendly.

Ease of Use: Both electric and warm water installations are controlled by a dedicated digital thermostat. You'll benefit from complete control of your heating, and you can even pre-programme your heating to suit colder times of day or adjust automatically with the change of the seasons.

Low Maintenance: Electric underfloor heating systems require pretty much no maintenance and should provide years of hassle free use. Wet underfloor systems may need occasional checks to make sure that things are all working properly, however there is no flushing or bleeding of radiators to worry about. Operating water fed underfloor heating at lower temperatures also has the benefit of placing far less pressure on boilers and other methods of heating (air/ground source heat pumps) making them more reliable and giving them a longer service life.

Ideal For Any Room: You can free up the wasted space that exists around radiators by using underfloor heating, which can surprisingly be around ten percent of the area of a room. The fact that underfloor heating systems can be used alongside virtually any floor covering makes them perfect for conservatories, living areas, kitchens and bathrooms in Widnes. You can even use underfloor heating for outside areas such as patios, garages or summer houses.

Air Quality: The radiant heat that warms up your spaces from an underfloor heating system creates less airflow through air currents than old fashioned central heating radiators. A more healthy environment is established as the movement of dust particles and pollen in the air is lessened.

WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS

Warm water underfloor heating, also known as wet floor or hydronic systems employ hot water to effectively warm your home. They can be connected to air or ground source heat pumps (usually found in newer builds), or an existing gas or oil fired boiler if replacing traditional heating radiators.

Water Underfloor Heating Widnes (WA8)

Installing a water based system increases the height of your floor since it's placed into a layer of thermal screeding poured over the subfloor. This makes them more suitable for new builds in Widnes, although there are slender pipe alternatives for retrofitting, without creating a hugely raised floor area. The use of wet systems is increasing as a strategy for "whole house" heating in Widnes. People are switching to these systems because of their efficiency of heating rooms, increased thermal effect and lower operating costs compared to conventional heating solutions.

HYBRID UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS WIDNES

build homes in Widnes are starting to use hybrid systems of both electric and water underfloor heating in new builds. Areas with higher heating requirements like ground floor living areas and basements will have a water fed underfloor system, whilst upper level rooms, lofts and attic spaces use an electric option. This combo provides the best efficiency with the maximum heating benefits.

PLANNING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION

It is essential to conduct a heat loss survey on your dwelling in Widnes before doing any underfloor heating installation. A qualified heating engineer or architect will carry out the survey to ascertain if any additional insulation is necessary and the size of heating system you will need. High heat loss areas, such as conservatories and orangeries, will need a greater wattage than those of internal living areas. The layout, dimensions and heating requirements of the water pipes or electric mats will be based on this on-site survey and is an essential process in the design phase.

Insulating panels placed beneath the pipework, heating cables or heat mats will usually be needed to lessen any sub-floor heat loss. This insulating material has the added benefit of bringing down heat-up times and increasing efficiency by "pushing" the heat up into your room, rather than it being absorbed by the floor below.

It's possible for an accomplished DIY enthusiast to install underfloor heating systems, but any electrical connections must be done by a qualified NICEIC electrician trained to Part P standards. It is always preferable to use a qualified installation provider in Widnes for all of your underfloor heating requirements, who will comply with all the relevant Health & Safety guidelines and provide guarantees for their work and equipment. Servicing, warranties and the aftercare are important things to bear in mind from any Widnes firm that provides underfloor heating equipment and installation.

SUMMARY

Water fed underfloor heating systems are better incorporated into new build houses or major renovation works where the additional flooring height can be factored in during the design phase.

Either form of underfloor heating can save you money on conventional heating methods, and provide a consistent quantity of heat which is simple to control and monitor.

Whatever your prerequisites; "whole house" heating, or installation to a single room, underfloor heating is an ideal option when upgrading your heating system.
