Underfloor Heating

The underfloor heating is the most advanced heating system, providing optimal comfort while offering the possibility of working in combination with two sources of energy, the production of heat through a conventional boiler and using solar energy.

Due to its efficient operating system, underfloor heating allows savings of 25-30% of energy, percentage increases when working with solar power systems with large gathering power and through the automation and regulation in combination probe temperature and high-performance teams, making the most of solar energy and help prevent overheating or freezing in the heat transfer circuit boards.

The underfloor heating helps the environment, especially when working with solar energy, but also has excellent health benefits. It can be installed on any surface, including parquet, furthermore, the development of materials has allowed due to the different offers to reduce the height of placement absolute limits a few years ago.

Radiant floor offers complete freedom for interior decoration as there is no visible elements (it is an invisible heating), the livable space of this system is higher in the absence of visible and important heating elements, the disappearance of the risk of burns and bumps due to contact with issuers.

The underfloor heating is very safe because it has no joints, since all its routes begin and end at collectors, this and the quality of the tube ensures absence of faults. Compared with other systems using metal pipes connected by numerous joints which makes them much more prone to failures, leading to higher maintenance costs and reduced sense of security at the facility.

More applications - heating large volumes heights. Unlike other systems, the heat is distributed to a maximum height of 2.5 meters, this is ideal for heating large volumes being the most effective system in industrial buildings, churches, sports , auditoriums, etc..

Swimming pool heating: thanks to this system is avoided in hot water flow entering the glass, thereby minimizing evaporation of water, which is the major source of heat loss in a pool. A part of this floor heating to heat the the soil surrounding the glass of the pool is also used, which produces a pleasant feeling after stepping barefoot.

The underfloor heating is the introduction of soil heat radiation leaving weatherize stay. This heating system is an evolution of a technique called early Roman "Hipocasus" consisting of the construction of channels below ground by circulating hot air.

At present the operating principle is similar but has changed the heat transfer fluid, replacing the air with water which is conducted through crosslinked polyethylene pipes.

Radiant floor heating is a low temperature, the enclosure is radiating heat as the heating element is built into the ground. A good panel system occupies most of the ground surface, causing proper heat distribution at all points of the heated room.

A underfloor heating installation consists of:

  • Heating element (polystrene crosslinked pipe).
  • Coating.
  • Thermal insulation.
  • Regulating and control devices

The tubes are placed between three and five inches below ground with separations ranging from ten to thirty centimeters between them. By circulating water in said tubes to a temperature between 35 and 45 ° C so that the soil is maintained at a temperature between 20 and 28 º C and its environment to a comfortable temperature of between 18 and 22 ° C.

ADVANTAGES OF RADIANT FLOOR

DESIGN:

This system allows a free choice of flooring for your home.

  • Radiant floor offers complete freedom for interior decoration as there is no visible emitting elements (heating is invisible).
  • The livable space of this system is higher in the absence of visible heating elements.
  •  Disappearance of the risk of burns and bumps due to contact with issuers.

HEALTHY :

  • No noise, quiet heating due to the low rate at quecircula heating medium .
  •  No air movement : due to the low temperature of the emitting heat ( the soil has a temperature below 30 º C ) is imperceptible ascent of hot air. This lack of air movement significantly reduces the movement of powder and therefore more hygienic living space.
  • No accumulation of dust and burnt not dry environment .
  • Is the heating system that best fits optimum temperature profile of the human body . The air temperature at the height of the head is slightly lower than the air temperature at the height of the foot , leading to a greater sense of comfort for the user.
  • The entire cabin is at the optimum temperature : the issuer is the entire floor area to be heated , this involves a uniform room temperature.
  • For all this, the underfloor heating is especially recommended for hospitals, day care centers, nursing homes , people with respiratory problems as it prevents the formation of dust and does not alter the humidity.

ADAPTATION OF THIS SYSTEM A VERY DIFFERENT PROJECTS

  • Heating volumes with high altitudes : Unlike other systems, the heat is distributed to a maximum height of 2.5 meters, this is ideal for heating large volumes being the most effective system in industrial buildings , churches , gymnasiums, auditoriums, etc.
  • Swimming pool heating : thanks to this system is avoided in hot water flow entering the vessel, thereby minimizing evaporation of water, which is the major source of heat loss in a pool.
  •  A part of this floor heating to heat the soil around the glass of the pool is also used , which produces a pleasant feeling after stepping barefoot .
  • The underfloor heating provides multiple personalities regarding the adaptation of the thermal generator that uses , due to the low temperature required for the installation can be combined with solar panel systems or other alternative sources of energy, which also has an ecological advantage.
  • The pipes used in the circuit are formed by a material which is not corroded , being compatible with lime , gypsum , concrete , ... besides the expansion of the tube due to the temperatures , is not detrimental to the pavement .

MORE ECONOMIC SYSTEM

Energy Savings: In unheated by other systems , the temperature of the raised areas of the local is greater , as a result of being larger convective factor , ie , the greater speed of ascent of warm air layers .

By contrast, the floor heating concentrates the heat input where the user perceives.

This results in an important energy saving superior to 10% in front of the heating housing radiators.

Also decreases heat loss in the boiler and in the conductosa because of lower water temperature in the circuit.

Also assumed energy savings due to the ability of this system to its ability to adapt to thermal generators using alternative energy sources such as solar thermal , regenerative fireplaces, boilers coal and wood , waste heat from industrial processes, hot water , heat pump , etc. . ( see section developed heat sources )

Better insulation of the heated room : energetic losses are reduced , and therefore energy savings occurs.

No maintenance or repair : the system of floor heating system is the most reliable in this aspect , since the user forgets to repairs and maintenance at the time of installation.

Neither has to worry about the painting of any item as it is an invisible system.

Value: although initially the heating system may seem a little expensive, it actually has a very competitive price compared to other systems, taking into account a number of factors:

  • The safety and confidence provided over other systems due to the absence of failures and maintenance and long life.
  • The energy savings because of the qualities of this system and its adaptation to energy sources with high performance.
  • The degree of comfort: "hot feet, cool head" and even heat distribution across the heated surface.
  • The isolation provided adicionas: this means less heat loss through the walls.
  • The price and the annual maintenance bill is zero because it does not require maintenance.
