Water is heated by one or more heat sources such as Solar Collectors, Heat Pumps, Fire Places with Water Heat Exchangers and more. The heat generated from the heat sources may be used directly to the underfloor heating pipes or stored in a storage tank or geyser. The hot water is then pumped via feed and return pipes to one or more manifolds hidden in the home which in turn have special pipes which placed in the floor as per special design. The hot water in the pipes are regulated via actuator valves on the manifold and room thermostats distributed throughout the house. Should heating be required in any room according to a set temperature on the thermostat, a signal is passed to the actuator to open and pump to start circulating hot water via the manifold to the embedded water pipes in the floor, until the desired temperature is reached in the room. The thermostat having reached the set temperature then sends a signal to stop the pump circulation and the actuator valve is closed.
- Energy Efficient
Water may be heated very efficiently using one or more heat sources at a fraction of the price of electrical underfloor heating
Underfloor heating is the best form of heating available with no dust particles being moved around the house. No electromagnetic fields such as in electrical underfloor heating
Water underfloor may be controlled via a simple wired thermostat controller to a sophisticated wireless system that controls the heat throughout the home all year round. The system needs no constant intervention and once programmed will give your home comfort all year round.
The water underfloor heating may be adapted, using heat pumps, to be used for cooling during summer time. The system may be integrated to provide hot water for domestic use, water underfloor heating, pool and jacuzzi heating, Hydronic heated towel rails, Fan Coil Units, Radiators.
