No dust, no noise, just comfortable heat!
Before the concrete slab is poured, the pipe is strategically laid in 'circuits'. Once the slab has been poured and the pipes are covered in concrete the pipework is pressure tested by flushing water throughout at great pressure to ensure optimum integrity in the piping. The pipes are connected to a manifold and then connected to the heat source.
The heat source that's installed will depend on each client's individual needs, access to fuel (ie gas/wood/electricity) and personal preference. Click here to find out more about our range of heat sources.
The heat source heats the water and pumps the water to the manifold. The manifold will be setup on installation so that the manifold will adjust the perfect amount of water to flow through to each circuit. The water flows through the circuit like a circular maze and returns to the manifold and back to the heat source to be heated and circulated again.
Residential In-Floor Heating
There is usually one circuit per room but for larger rooms or rooms needing more heat we may recommend additional circuits. Extreme care is taken when the pipe is laid to ensure the correct areas will be heated, and not the areas that you don't want heated.
The methods adopted by the team to install in-floor heating mean that certain rooms and entire areas can be isolated and shut down when not in use. This is particularly useful in large homes. For instance, once the children move out and that area of the house isn't used it can be easily shut down and re-activated again when guests are expected.
Residential in-floor heating systems can be easily controlled with the use of a thermostat. Some of our systems even allow for a thermostat to be installed that can be programmed with a weekly schedule. If you know no one's in the house and needing the house heated during weekdays and you want the heating to be programmed to come on before you get home each night, it's as simple as pushing a few buttons. We'll even give you a lesson and programme the thermostat with you when we hand over the system to you.
