The underfloor heating system is popular as it is one of the most efficient heat sources that require lower running temperatures to operate capably and the Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) is ideal for underfloor heating. It works on the principle of heat exchange just like your normal refrigerator and absorbs heat from the outside air which is then used for heating underfloor heating systems in your home. The system works even when the outside temperature is as low as -15° C. An under floor heating system runs under the flooring heating the room’s floor which in turn heats up the room itself. The systems generate temperatures of 40°C to 65°C. The actual floor temperature remains at an average between 23°C and 32°C which is lower than your standard radiators. Underfloor heating pipes are fitted under your flooring which are routed back to a central manifold which is connected to a boiler, heat pump or other source of hot water. There is typically one central system per floor. These distribute heat to the relevant loops as and when required and evenly. In case of wet underfloor heating systems, the heated water is circulated through these loops of pipes as shown. There are different installation options available to suit different floor constructions like stone, tile, wooden or even carpeted surfaces. Although the wet underfloor heating systems require more planning than their electric counterparts, the final result is well worth it as the system comes with its own set of benefits and pays for itself within no time with the reduction in the energy costs. In your home, apart from the lower energy bills, the other main benefit is that the home heats up faster than the other systems. Since it is the floor that gets heated, heat is evenly distributed and the heat retention is better. Unlike the radiators that take up the wall space, the underfloor heating systems are concealed. The underfloor systems are concealed and hence are absolutely child friendly as compared to the other systems. The installation process is quick and easy and as short as two days and these systems do not need much of maintenance as compared to the other systems when installed properly.
