Underfloor Heating is an ideal partner for ground source heat pumps, to provide you with a very efficient, low-temperature demand, cost-effective floor heating.
Using the inherent qualities of rising heat and low flow temperatures that radiate heat to the floor, Heatology will provide you with an economical heating system that is kinder to the environment.
We will provide and design the complete layout, supply and install using our extensive experience in the field of heat pumps, we are also able to combine systems and take advantage of low flow temperatures to maximise your heat pumps efficiency. Heatology are dedicated to the heat pump industry and have not partnered with any specific manufacturers that enable us to be flexible and to ensure you are getting the right equipment for the right job. Our experience has enabled us to create solutions to any potential problems and we are able to combine the heat source and distribution systems for a complete solution.
The correct design is vital to ensure your floor heating requirements are fully realised. Heatology are a dedicated team of underfloor heating specialists who, using their experience can easily specify the correct floor heating system for any location.
Because of our many years of experience with heat pumps, one of the additional advantages of underfloor heating from Heatology is that we can ensure both systems will complement each other providing you with the best ROI in renewable energy systems.
Underfloor Heating Types
This is generally used when a mechanical fixing is required for a timber floor. Timber or battens are fixed throughout the property. Insulation boards are placed in between each timber or batten. Pipework is fixed onto the insulation using the supplied clip-rail and clips. A layer of concrete or screed is then poured over the pipework.
This system is generally designed for properties where there are suspended joists at 400mm centres. Aluminium plates are fixed to the top of the joists using staples or nails. Pipework can then be laid within the plate which will spread the heat across the floor covering above. Insulation boards are then cut and fixed beneath the plate to prevent any heat loss. In some instances the joists can’t be notched or the joists are not at 400mm centres, if this is the case a cross battened plate system may be installed. A 20mm timber batten is fixed at 90 degrees to the existing joists; the plates are then fixed to the battens.
Insulation boards are placed on top of a ground bearing slab, block - beam or concrete floor. The under-floor heating pipework is then fixed onto the insulation using the supplied clip rail and clips. A final layer of concrete or screed will then be poured over the remaining pipework. Alternatively to the standard clip rail and clips, builders mesh can be laid allowing the pipe to be secured in position using cable ties.
