How does underfloor heating work?

How does underfloor heating Cumbria work?

With an underfloor heating Cunbria system the heated floor is a large integrated radiator. When designing an underfloor heating system the idea is create a surface temperature as evenly as possible. Good isolated buildings and homes can be heated entirely by underfloor heating, so there will be no extra radiators and the like. When munderfloo heating is applied to buildings that are not well insulated, there is additional heating required. To prevent damage to the floor, the water that runs through the pipework, which are in the floor, is not hotter than 60 degrees. The temperature in the underfloor heating Cumbria system is usually set to a maximum temperature of 55 degrees. Often this scheme is additionally protected by a thermostat, which can turn off the pump of the system when the temperature becomes too high. The temperature of the floor will vary between 22 and 34 degrees. This depends on the water temperature control, the mixing system and the distance between the floor pipes.

Why underfloor heating?

Underfloor heating has a number of advantages. Because there is a larger radiating surface with a lower temperature compared to that of radiators, is it a pleasant heat and the air temperature can remain low. In addition to this, the energy consumption is lower because the room can be heated with lower air temperature. This allows you to set the thermostat 1 or 2 degrees lower than when using radiators and create a much more comfortable temperature in the home. The House has a larger heat buffer, because it is much more regularly heated. Because of the lack of air circulation, also for people with cara/airway disorders it is a very pleasant way of heating. When using underfloor heating there are no main heating radiators and the like, so that they no longer to take the space.

The advantages at a glance:

  1. The heat build up is going from the floor to the ceiling, this means that the temperature is most comfortable at living height.
  2. There are no visible heating elements in your living room. This is not only more beautiful, but also frees up space.
  3. Energy saving! The temperature can be set 1-2 degrees lower.
  4. The system reduces the chance of dust mites, gives less dust circulation and better air humidity.
  5. On an annual basis you can save on average around 300 kWh, which soon results in a reduction of 20% in heating costs.
