How to Install Underfloor heating system?
However, if the heating system fails or has problems in the summer, homeowners may be disappointed the first time they turn on the heating. Therefore, underfloor heating installers should encourage people to have underfloor heating repaired now to avoid problems in the winter.
What is Underfloor heating?
Underfloor heating heats the floor of a room evenly by means of heat radiation or radiation. Because the floor is heated at a low temperature, the heat is almost entirely given off by radiation distributed over the entire floor, the heat emission is the same everywhere in the room and there is only a minimal temperature stratification in the room air. This can be programmed with an electronic thermostat. Usually the heat output is between 30 and 60 W/m2. A maximum of 100 W/m2 can be supplied. A dry construction system is placed on the floor by means of, for example, studded panels.
Wet building system
This type is poured into the concrete. This type is suitable for new-build homes because there is an adequate level of furnishing for it. You want about 16 to 20 cm installation height.
Dry building system
This type is laid in preformed polystyrene or polystyrene foam mats. Normally this type is used in houses with limited floor development. You really want a settlement level of somewhere around 6cm. In contrast to the wet development framework, you really want 10 cm less settlement level.
Electric underfloor heating
Electric underfloor heating can be divided into 3 types. You have mats, and electrical connections and you have foil frames. The advantage of this kind is low start-up costs and a simple and quick introduction.
in this type, spaces are created at the highest point of the concrete tirade. Since the lines are at the highest point of the rant, the floor heats up quickly and there is little intensity of misfortune. Underfloor heating heats your floor evenly through heat radiation.
Does underfloor heating require maintenance?
Underfloor heating is virtually maintenance-free, but regular maintenance is highly recommended. It is recommended to maintain your system regularly to ensure that it is always running smoothly and efficiently. Maintenance allows plumbers and heaters to proactively look for signs of heating system problems and provide homeowners with tips for maximizing heating system efficiency. This also shows that you care about your customers and they can open the door to do more business in the future. So proactive is much better than waiting for an error and then solving the problem. In most cases this is more expensive for the customer and may result in it not working (or not working at all) until the stove is repaired. This is far from ideal for midwinter. Not only is it uncomfortable to live in winter without heating, cold houses are usually very humid and people can experience shortness of breath, which adversely affects the health of the residents. Living in a cold environment can be physiologically taxing for the elderly, the sick or even the very young. Ambiente recommends that all UFH systems be serviced and checked annually to operate smoothly, efficiently and effectively.
Are there issues that can be detected during regular maintenance?
The consequences of not regularly maintaining underfloor heating floors can be far-reaching and in the worst case the heating capacity can be severely limited. Common problems that can occur such as air entrapment in the system, inaccurate or unbalanced flow rates, system blockages, wiring problems, insufficiently heated zones, pump failures, etc. There are several. This can lead to uneven heating performance, improper heating of certain rooms and high heating costs. Ambiente can recommend a network of trusted professional service technicians who can diagnose your problem and perform preventive maintenance and repairs.
What are the benefits of the underfloor heating service?
Regular maintenance ensures that the underfloor heating system operates at the highest efficiency and there is no risk of imminent failure. Knowing that their system is in great shape reassures their customers. If the system is not used for several years, deposits can build up in the system and affect moving parts such as valves and flow meters. Keeping the system clean reduces the risk of these components failing later.
And how often do you have to fix it?
Ambiente recommends prompt service one year after installation and every year thereafter. This helps the system function normally and identify errors before they cause damage. Underfloor heating maintenance To help the installer, we have made a checklist for filling and cleaning underfloor heating. A checklist of suitable versions to print can be found in Underfloor heating resources. Here you will also find a pressure test certificate and a warranty certificate for pipes.
