An Energy-Efficient Heating Solution
Through using the process of underfloor heating, the entire floor area of the house will gently warm the air above helping remove the possibility of cold patches. Warm air will ascend losing approximately 2 degrees centigrade at 2.0 meters above the floor, making the system ideal for all ceiling heights. Through testing we’ve identified that underfloor heating is perfect in achieving a suitable indoor climate in which the floor temperature will range between 19-29°C and the air temperature at head level ranges between 20 and 24°C.
Here at Central Flow Screed and Underfloor Heating, we can offer a totally bespoke service which is fully designed for your exact requirements.
Most heating systems heat from the top down, which can leave us feeling uncomfortable. The heat generated by radiators is usually concentrated into relatively small areas, heating the air directly around them. The air then rises up the wall, along the ceiling into the center of the room. When it reaches the center of the room, it cools slightly, and then descends towards the floor. The result therefore, is a warm head and cold feet!
This method of heating gives under floor systems an efficiency advantage over radiators of as much as 26 per cent, with the lower running costs that implies. Further savings stem from the fact that the water, in an under floor water-based system, circulates at a much lower temperature than that used in radiators. Add to that the 2-3 degrees less ambient warmth that is required for comfort, due to the radiation nature of the heat, and the idea begins to add up to worthwhile savings, as well as energy efficiency.
