How Does Underfloor Heating Work?
In simple words, underfloor heating is set up as follows:
- The floor must first be very highly insulated and prepared so that the heat put into the floor isn’t just loft into the ground or airspace below the floor.
- Once the insulation layers are laid the correct base (tracking) for the pipe system being used must be laid.
- Tubes are usually plastic and are laid to evenly cover the floor. They are then connected with a distribution manifold that is especially designed for the floorspace and flow rate required.
- Then, pipes are placed where the warmth is necessary. They must be distributed at even distances from each other to make sure they produce even heat.
- The pipes are then covered with concrete or finished screed.
- You can then tile over the area to your design
- Afterwards, the flow pipes have to be connected to the supply modules. The valves can be adjusted manually or by using a thermostat as part of the home heating controls.
- The manifold is also comprised of connecting modules, end modules, air vents, and so on. It does not need supplementary fittings and it is rapidly assembled.
