Under floor heating is generally considered in the list of
luxurious things and sometimes a wish of many. If you have ever walked on the
cold chilling tiles in the windy mornings in winters, than this could actually
help you a lot.
But you might be thinking how UFH works?
There are basically two types of UFH installed: wet and dry
In a wet UFH system, the pipes carry hot water which has
been heated by the boiler. This is as same as a radiator, over the pipes are
installed with the large surface area and that too together. Whenever the hot
water has followed the pipes, it will return to a temperature sensor. The
sensor will determine the temperature of the water. And if the water is hot
enough, it will be resent to the system by the help of a boiler. This helps in
making the floor work at a regular temperature and radiators to run separately.
However in dry, the UFH system has a series of electrical
wires installed underneath the floor. The system can vary depending on the
property size and how well the house is insulated. A layer of insulation is
laid down and then electric cable above them.
This insulation will help to prevent the heat from travelling down into
the ground instead it makes a space into your home. Then these wires are
connected to the mains of the electricity.
Reasons why UFH is so popular
- A different kind of feeling – UFH provides you a
different kind of feeling, just like the warmth you are getting by the sun. The
under floor heating utilizes the radiant heat and warms the objects with it.
- Healthier environment – UFH uses radiant heat
which maintains a cleaner and healthier environment all around. Also helps to
dry out the moisture naturally.
- Walk bare-foot – for people living in cold
areas, walking around bare foot is only possible in summer season. But with the
help of UFH they can be able to kick-off their shoes and can roam freely and
experience the pleasure of luxuriousness.
Installation of under floor heating with combi boiler
Less weight heating systems or low profile heating systems
are lightweight floor panels with water pipes in built in. they can be laid
into the existing floor and the installation takes no longer than 24 hours.
There is no major excavation and no waiting for the flooring to dry.
