There are two major types of underfloor heating systems, the water (or hydronic) underfloor heating system and the electrical underfloor heating system. Most homes have the former installed because it is more common. The hydronic systems use only water or (in some cases) a combination of anti-freeze and water. It acts as a transfer fluid for the heat in a “closed loop” and is recirculated from the floor to the boiler and vice versa while it is on. Clifton Hill & Montpelier Underfloor Heating Brighton is a specialist company that installs, maintains and fixes underfloor heating systems in Brighton and Hove, be it water-based or electrical.

Manufacturers produce various types of pipes specially for water underfloor heating. They are mostly built from polyethylene and include PEX, PERT and PEX-AI-PEX. In some cases, older substances like polybutylene and steel or copper pipes are still used for localised purposes. Water-based systems required competent designers and trades experts who are trained in boiler systems, circulators, controls, temperature and fluid pressure.
Clifton Hill & Montpelier Underfloor Heating Brighton uses modern techniques and products to simplify design requirements and cut the time it takes to install/ commission water underfloor heating systems.
Wet (hydronic) underfloor heating systems can have a single source or a group of energy sources to maintain energy costs. One source of energy for hydronic systems is a boiler, especially combined heat and power plants. It could be heated by natural gas, which is regarded industry-wide as the purest, most efficient way to heat water. But it also depends on its availability. Another energy source is propane made essentially from oil.
Although it is less efficient than natural gas in terms of volume, it is more expensive and produces more CO2. Other energy sources include electricity, coal, solar thermal, wood or biomass.
Over time, your water underfloor heating system will bend to natural heat and moisture considerations. When heated and cooled cables or heating pipes are in the same space as other building components, heat may be transferred in a parasitic manner. This is especially common between refrigerators, air-conditioning and cold storage areas. In order to keep this in check, the cables, pipes and other building components must be sufficiently insulated. Clifton Hill & Montpelier Underfloor Heating Brighton can set up a maintenance schedule to help keep your heating system in shipshape condition at all times.
Installing a water underfloor heating system can be a complicated process if you are not familiar with the set up. For one, you can buy the wrong materials for your floor type. Consider that the type you use may vary with timber or concrete floors.
