Specialists in underfloor heating
Our specialist underfloor heating engineers have over 15 years experience. Our engineers can service, maintain and install underfloor heating. We offer both water and electrical underfloor heating.
Underfloor heating is highly recommend by our engineers as it will heat up a whole room within minutes, as a radiator only heats a small area of the room and will take a while to warm the area up. Underfloor heating evenly distributes the heat around the whole room and dust will not be circulated around the whole room. Both water and electrical underfloor heating systems are likely to reduce your bills, depending on what system you are using. Our specialist engineers, will recommend which underfloor heating system is the best for you during your free estimate.
If you are unsure if underfloor heating can be used with a variety range of floor coverings:
- Engineered Wood
Electrical Underfloor Heating – Dry System
Electric underfloor heating uses electric heating matts to warm the floor up. The specialist will use heating mats underneath the floor, they are normally placed on top of a layer of insulation and screed will be on top. It is recommended to have an earth grid matt if you require electrical underfloor heating to be installed in your bathroom.
Water Underfloor Heating – Wet System
The Energy Saving Trust recommends Water underfloor heating, since it is more energy efficient than radiators. A wet system pumps warm water through plastic pipes that are under the floor, they are usually connected to the main central heating source. The engineer will connect your boiler to the underfloor heating, this is usually dispersed by a stainless-steel manifold. The manifold is the most important part of the underfloor heating as it controls the flow, temperature and directions of the water. The specialist will also install a thermostat in the room so you can control the temperature.
A thermal imaging survey may be required to enable our engineers to detect if there is any pipes or heat matts which are not working to the sufficient standard if your underfloor heating is not working. The specialist will use a camera, whilst the underfloor heating is on to detect any issues. Once the engineer has diagnosed any issues, they will resolve the underfloor heating and ensure it is working in no time!
