Underfloor heating

Underfloor heating is an elegant and unobtrusive way to heat a room or rooms and is the ideal heating solution where you don't want radiators, or don't have the wall space for them.
 
There are two basic methods of underfloor heating, by electric cable or by water in pipe running off a central heating boiler (hydronic). We can supply and install both systems. Which method is most suitable will depend on the individual circumstances.
 
Underfloor heating solutions are available whether your floor is made from timber or concrete and whether the top surface will be wood, carpet or tile.
 

Some images of a water in pipe underfloor heating installation.

 
Pipe laying
 
Here you see the castellated insulation panels already placed over the concrete slab, used in this case because of the complexity of the layout with the central island and large window area requiring close spacing, in less complex designs flat insulation panels with a rail system for pipe fixing may be more appropriate. The loops of pipe are being laid in spiral patterns to give even heat coverage. This particular room needed three loops of pipe.
 
 
 
Entry point
 
This image shows the pipe loop entry point into the room.
 
 
 
Manifold
 
This image shows the manifold which takes the flow of hot water from the central heating boiler, modulates the temperature, and pumps the water around the pipe loops. The three loops of the above room are already connected and the three loops for the other rooms to be run from it are still to be connected.
 
 
 
Screeding
 
Once the pipe loops are all laid down and connected to the manifold the system can be pressure tested. After a successful pressure test the pipe loops are then pressurised to working pressure and the screed is laid over them giving an even floor surface ready for tiling, carpeting etc. once dry.
