|Hydronic Under floor Heating works by circulating warm water through a closed network of pipes laid in the floor, gently spreading heat throughout the house. As it is a closed system, water is re-used once commissioned and does not need to be refilled.
The water can be heated by almost every energy source, e.g. conventional gas boilers or renewable energy sources such as solar or energy efficient heat pumps. In combination with a renewable energy source, this system requires only a minimum of electricity and is therefore most environmentally friendly.
SAVE ENERGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Save up to ± 70% in home heating energy usage. By warming your house or building from the floor up you can lower the comfortable room temperature set point by 2°C to 4°C , thereby reducing the energy input required. Low energy intensity and efficient transfer of heating energy ensure Hydronic under floor heating is one of the lowest carbon footprint technologies available.
HYGIENIC, SAFE & EASY TO MAINTAIN
- Warm and dry floors inhibit the growth of house dust mites. Combine that with almost zero air movement, Hydronic under floor heating provides significant health benefits, in particular for sufferers of allergies and asthma.
- No chance of injuries caused by radiator panels, the perfect solution for schools, nursing homes, hospitals, and similar public buildings.
- With almost zero mechanical equipment and simple one-step room temperature control, Hydronic under floor heating is easy to operate and even easier to maintain.
FREEDOM AND FLEXIBILITY OF DESIGN
- Because the heating system is totally hidden, there are no air ducts or protruding heating units to hinder design considerations.
- Enclosed within the building slab and operable by remote controls, Hydronic under floor heating provides a tamper-proof and 100% secure heating solution.
- The floor is a large heat emitter so only ‘warm’ water (heated to 35°C to 45°C) is required. This opens the possibility of using renewable energy sources such as solar and geothermal, as well as conventional sources like gas or energy efficient heat pumps.
