Underfloor Heating

There are many factors that influence the way people feel the temperature, such as direct sunshine, humidity, draught and how evenly the temperature is distributed. Thermal comfort can be described as the point at which the human body feels at ease and comfortable with the surrounding environment.

With radiant floor heating the feeling of thermal comfort can be increased, as the temperature is stable and there is no draught. It is also a method that satisfies other senses, too. It is completely invisible and very silent.

The first installations of radiant floor heating with water-circulated PEX pipes were made in the 1970s. The heating circulates warm water through flexible and durable PEX pipes installed underneath the floor. This turns almost any type of floor into a large and gentle radiator.

Features and Benefits of Underfloor Heating and Cooling

Space: Every square metre of your home can be fully utilised. Radiant floor heating allows you to design your home to suit you rather than your heating engineer.

Hygiene: Healthy indoor environment. There will be less dust and the hygienic environment will be improved, helping to reduce house dust mites.

Aesthetics: Radiant floor heating permits freedom for interior design. You can furnish as you like, no radiators to determine how the furniture should be placed.

Labour saving: Cleaning of the floors is easier and wet floors dry very quickly.

Silence: Compared to radiator systems, there is no noise.

Cost effective: Saves energy and running costs. Energy saving from 15-40% can be achieved with radiant underfloor heating.

Ease of control: Small temperature difference between the floors means the system is practically self regulating.

Economic: The cost of an underfloor heating system is comparable to that of a radiator system.

Adaptable: The installation is fast and simple when using our Underfloor Heating System.

Low-temperature system: It is possible to use different heat sources - the water in the pipes can be heated by using oil burners, gas burners, solar energy, electricity etc.
