Keep your home warm with under floor heating

Modern underfloor heating systems use either electrical resistance elements or fluid flowing in pipes to heat the floor. Either type can be installed for single rooms, whole-building heating system or as localized floor heating for thermal comfort.

Electrical resistance can only be used for heating; when space cooling is also required, hydronic systems must be used. Using piped warm water is the most modern and energy-efficient option for heating homes and other buildings.

Here at Plumbing For Less, we have everything you need to set up your own hydronic underfloor heating with Hep20 products manufactured by Wavin.

The heating system can be integrated with the boiler or pump system already installed in your home, whether it’s powered by gas, fuel, oil or renewable energy. It is especially suited for renewable heat sources because it requires water at lower temperatures than traditional heating techniques.

As we all know, heat rises, so installing a heating system under your floor is a sure way to heat your home effectively. The Hep20 heating product will work under any type of flooring whether it’s tiles, carpet, laminate, wood or vinyl. This kind of heating produces more radiant heat then what you would expect from a conventional radiator which actually produces conductive heat.

Once correctly installed underfloor heating is maintenance free as it has no moving parts. Any potential leaks will have been dealt with prior to installation and laying the floor surface down.

When using underfloor heating elements in a new house design, there is no need to save space for radiators. This can create more space within the rooms allowing more creative designs and layouts of homes.

Another benefit of ground heating is that the system is easily controlled compared to traditional methods of one thermostat. The Wavin Hep2O offers a range of temperature controls and thermostat systems for up to 14 underfloor zones to monitor water and air temperature individually.
