All our systems are compatible with renewable energy sources, and a broad range of structures and surface coverings for industrial facilities, housing and sports halls, providing ideal solutions for small to large-scale building projects.
The floor surface temperature required is very close to the actual room temperature and always below 29ºC in occupied areas to achieve an acceptable degree of comfort. It is essential however, that floor coverings do not provide too great a degree of insulation. Otherwise the heat in the Heating system may not be able to raise the room temperature to its design level.
The basic operation of a water-based underfloor heating system is pipe embedded within a concrete screed, with warm water circulating through the pipe work allowing for the gradual heating of the screed and eventual emitting of heat from the floor into the room. The heat is concentrated where it is most needed for human comfort and energy efficiency.
It is quite common to have a mixed system in one building where underfloor heating is used throughout the ground floor and radiators are used in the upper floors / bedroom areas, where only sporadic heat is required. Both systems can be operated off one boiler, but will need different time controls due to the different response times. The only exception to this is where Underfloor Heating is required for a single room. In this case Pipelife have a special pump / control unit available which allows a single underfloor heating circuit to be connected to a radiator heating system.
The ideal stage to consider your home heating requirements is during the design process and is one of the most critical items that you will put into your house. Most of the system will be buried in your floor foundations for the lifetime of your property. It is critical that the components used are top quality and fully guaranteed by reputable manufacturers as any failures associated with sub-standard components or faulty design will lead to long term problems and costs.
