One of the most important factors when designing a heating system is to understand the integration of the heat source be it a ground\air source heat pump or gas\oil boiler and the effects flow temperatures have on performance, efficiency and comfort. This is even more important when using under floor heating due to the slow reaction time, meaning any action you take today (raise room temperature) takes effect tomorrow. We provide a complete design and installation service for all types of under floor applications.
Our standard solid floor design is based on a screeded floor construction with the underfloor heating pipes clipped to floor grade insulation and embedded within the screed layer. With a standard sand/cement based screed the thickness of screed should comply with the requirements of BS 8204, which specify a minimum screed thickness of 75mm except for domestic and light loading applications where a thickness of 65mm is acceptable. Alternatively a liquid flow screed can be used with a minimum thickness of 50mm.
Where under floor heating is required in suspended timber floors there a number are number of different methods to consider; metal diffuser plates, over lay systems and pipe clipped to insulation between the joists.
Due to the different construction methods we offer a free technical design service for all types of under floor heating to make sure the right system is applied every time.
