As more and more homeowners opt for renewable energies like underfloor heating, installers can help customers maximise the efficiency of their Firebird
“Installers play a crucial role in educating customers about the efficient use of underfloor heating systems. Recommending the use of programmable thermostats, which can be set to carry out default tasks at specific times each day, can help customers improve the performance of their system and reduce energy costs.”
Gary explains further, “To avoid potential problems from manifesting, the same general rule applies with all forms of home heating systems, it is best to advise customers to have their underfloor heating serviced annually by a professional”
By following these tips, customers can enjoy a comfortable living environment while making significant savings on their heating bills.
How does it work?
A “wet” underfloor heating system is like a giant radiator at floor level. A series of plastic pipes are connected to a heat source to circulate warm water throughout the floor to heat the space by producing radiant heat. Since the floor (the radiator) is so large and the heat is more evenly distributed, it only needs to run at a low temperature to heat the room. This means that the water flowing around the floor needs to be at a far lower temperature than a traditional radiator system. The underfloor heating system heats the living area in the room, whilst the heat from the radiator system collects at the ceiling – a much less efficient heating method.
How does an
The underfloor heating system works in the same way as a radiator system does when linked to a boiler in a traditional heating system. The water and air temperature are controlled through the
