What to consider when installing underfloor heating 

Underfloor Heating Installation and Servicing

A growing number of family homes along with commercial properties, are deciding upon underfloor heating systems as a means to heat up their home or business.

Learning about Your Heating System

When working with underfloor heating maintenance and repairs, you need to know just what kind of system you have. A lot of families have wet, or hydroponic, underfloor heating systems. This denotes that a series of pipes are laid down below the flooring. These pipes are networked to the boiler, allowing warm water to circulate evenly below the floor. Wet underfloor heating may be installed underneath a number of various types of flooring, but how promptly your flooring heats up will depend upon the kind of floor surfaces you have.

Electrical, or dry, underfloor home heating needs electrical cables to be laid below or within the floor. Electric underfloor heating is notably lower profile than wet heating systems because it doesn’t add much height to the floor. Electric heating systems work in both small, oddly fashioned areas making use of loose-fitting, pliable wires, or perhaps in big spaces using electric cable systems and heating mats. Electric underfloor systems don’t require a gas connection and may be a bit more costly that gas-heated water systems, but they are much cheaper than oil or LPG heated homes.

Both underfloor heating systems are economical and efficient, but it’s not unheard for problems to arise.

No Need To Worry!

Whenever people have an underfloor heating system put in, a preventative action you can easily take is to simply run the system for about half an hour each month during the summer months. As soon as the weather is warm, it’s easy to forget to maintain your underfloor heating system, but remembering to run it every once in awhile will reduce the risk of circulating pumps and valves sticking. However, if a problem with your underfloor heating system occurs, there are a few things your can look for before resorting to calling a repairman.

The possibility exists that the settings may have been upset, quite possibly by a power failure, and your thermostat may well need to be adjusted to above an ambient temperature level or even reset to factory settings. The same thing applies to any kind of timers or programmers you may use for your underfloor heating system.
