Underfloor Heating Yeovil Somerset (BA20): An efficient and cost effective way to heat your property in Yeovil, is to install underfloor heating. It can be employed as an additional source of heating in combination with radiators, or can be fitted as a whole house heating system to completely replace radiators and other methods of heating. You can choose between water or electric systems for your underfloor heating requirements.
The benefit of an efficient and consistent heating system warming from the floor up, can be achieved with both water and electric installations. These underfloor systems do not operate at the higher temperatures required by standard forms of heating, like radiators, and for that reason need less energy to run. Typically a water heated radiator will run at a temperature of between 65-75 degrees Celsius, whereby underfloor heating needs only temperatures of about 25-35°C to effectively warm a similarly sized room.
BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING IN YEOVIL
Consistent & Uniform Heat: A hot water radiator heats the air directly next to its surfaces and uses convection to heat the whole room, sometimes creating cold spots. The air in a room radiates upwards from all floor areas at the same time, and is a uniform and consistent heat from floor level heating mats or pipes in an underfloor heating system.
Costs Less to Run: They work at lower temperatures to give you the equivalent thermal benefits of regular central heating, and hence are less expensive to run and more environmentally friendly.
Usability: Energy use and temperature are managed by a digital programmable thermostat, which can be linked into your smart phone, in both electric and warm water underfloor heating systems. This can be pre-programmed to suit your circumstances at different times of day or year, and gives you total control over your heating.
Lower Maintenance Requirements: With pretty much no maintenance demands, electric underfloor heating systems are hassle free and should provide several years of service. Water fed underfloor heating systems might be in need of occasional checks to ensure that everything is working properly, however there is no need for flushing or bleeding of radiators. The lower running temperatures also puts less demand on gas boilers and other heating methods (ground/air source heat pumps etc), thus making them longer lasting and generally more reliable.
Perfect For Any Room: The installation of underfloor heating can free-up the ten percent of wasted space that is typically taken up by traditional hot water radiators. The fact that underfloor heating systems can be used with almost any floor covering makes them appropriate for bathrooms, conservatories, kitchens and lounges in Yeovil. It is even possible to use underfloor heating for outside spaces on your property in Yeovil like garages, summer houses or patios.
Improved Air Quality: An underfloor heating system generates radiant heat from floor level upwards, which minimises air currents caused by halogen heaters or standard radiators. This in turn minimises the amount of dust and pollen moving around your home, establishing a far better environment.
The form of underfloor heating system which is more suitable to your requirements depends on exactly how much work you are prepared to do. Being easier and quicker to install and design, electric underfloor heating could be perfect for small projects in Yeovil. It is also a simple option for retrofitting into an existing property in Yeovil. If your project is a new build property or part of a major renovation, water based underfloor heating systems may be more suitable, especially if you are laying a brand new sub-floor.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Using electrically heated wires or mats that are linked up to a digital thermostat and a suitable mains supply, electric underfloor heating in Yeovil, is easy and quick to install. It's suitable for most heating projects and can easily be retrofitted into existing structures. It's an excellent kind of heating for spare rooms and loft conversions which don't need to be heated when they aren't being used.
Electric heating mats can be installed in not much more than 30 minutes. Simply roll out and stick the heating mat to the insulating material or sub-floor, have it connected to the mains supply by an experienced person, and it should be good to go. Different styles of underfloor heating mat are available for different floor surfaces and your underfloor heating specialist in Yeovil will be happy to give you some guidance about which sort is right for your property.
In awkward shaped rooms or areas where cutting ready-made mats to the correct size could be an issue, free form electric heating wire is generally used. An insulation pad is laid out and a heating element (single cable) is fixed onto it in "runs" before it is covered over by the flooring finish. A competent electrician will connect the cable to an appropriate electric spur or point, and at the same time install a room based thermostat.
Each individual room of your home in Yeovil could have standalone electric underfloor heating fitted, or multiple units could all be connected to a "whole home" system with a single point of control. If you happen to have a smart home in Yeovil, or are thinking about an installation of smart thermostats or other equipment, electric underfloor heating can be easily integrated into your proposed design.
WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS
Also termed hydronic or wet floor systems, these use hot water as the thermal source for heating. You can use an existing gas boiler with these heating systems, or in new build properties they can be linked up to air or ground source heat pumps.
Installing a water based system significantly increases the height of your floor since it is placed into a thermal screed above the subfloor. In Yeovil new builds this extra height can be allowed for in the design phase, but for older properties there are slimmer pipe options which keep the extra thickness requirement to a minimum. Over the last few years these wet systems have grown increasingly popular as a method of "whole home" heating in Yeovil. Their higher efficiency, greater thermal effect and lower operating costs have all contributed to the popularity of underfloor heating installations.
HYBRID UNDERFLOOR SYSTEMS IN YEOVIL
A mixture of electric and water underfloor heating techniques can be utilised in the creation of a hybrid heating system. Water based systems are used on ground floors and cellars which have higher heating energy requirements, while upper level rooms and loft conversions will use electric underfloor heating. The mixing of the two methods provides a unique heating system with the best efficiency.
DESIGN, PLANNING AND INSTALLATION OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING
If you are considering fitting an underfloor heating system to any part of your dwelling in Yeovil, it's essential that you carry out a heat loss survey. The survey will be completed by an architect or certified heating engineer who will establish the insulation needs and heating requirements of your house. Areas like uninsulated rooms or conservatories with a higher degree of heat loss will need a greater wattage system than that of a lounge or small bedroom/office space. The shape, size and heating needs of the electric mats or water pipes will be based upon this survey and is a vital part of the design procedure.
To lessen thermal losses through the sub-floor it will often be necessary to insert insulating panels under any pipes or heat mats. This insulation has the benefit of increasing efficiency and lowering heat-up times by literally "pushing" the heat up into your room, rather than being absorbed by the floor beneath.
All electrical link-ups have to be performed by a Part P qualified NICEIC electrician, but water pipes and electrical mats can be installed by any skilled DIY-er. It's always recommended to use a professional installation company in Yeovil for all of your underfloor heating needs, who'll adhere to all the appropriate Health and Safety procedures and provide guarantees for their work and equipment. Even with the high reliability of underfloor heating it is necessary to look at the level of warranty and aftercare, such as servicing, provided by your installation company.
Electric underfloor heating systems are especially suited to older property upgrades, extensions and loft conversions on account of the easier installation process, and the point that no connections to a hot water system are necessary. New build properties are more suitable for warm water systems which are far more easily incorporated into newly laid floors.
You can save money and get a more easily controllable and consistent level of heating with underfloor systems over that of its traditional counterparts.
Underfloor heating systems are an effective way to warm up your entire house, or just as easily be fitted into a single room, loft conversion or extension to your property.
