Hydronic Underfloor Heating Systems Supplies & Installation

Hydronic Underfloor Heating

Overview

Modern Comfort Heating with Low Running Costs

KEY BENEFITS

   DUST FREE

“Hydronic floor heating is a radiant heating system that results in low air movement compared with convection systems like ducted heating and air conditioning. This means very low levels of dust movement – a great relief for allergy and asthma sufferers.”

   ENERGY EFFICIENCY

“Hydronic floor heating is a very economical way to warm your home, especially when compared to traditional systems such as air conditioning. Hydronic floor heating provides a radiant heat that is especially comfortable compared to convection heating.”

   BEST-CLASS WARRANTY

“Our hydronic floor heating systems have the longest available warranties with the piping systems being under warranty for 25 years! A regular service of the system once per year will ensure that you get the most from your hydronic installation. Most people choose to do this as the weather begins to cool.”

SUITABLE FLOOR COVERINGS

Hydronic floor heating is a great option for large, open entertaining areas. It works well under cold floor coverings such as marble, stone, slate, polished concrete, and all varieties of tiles. It may also be used under carpet and timber floors. We recommend inquiring with timber manufacturers before the installation, which we can help facilitate.

HYDRONIC UNDER FLOOR HEATING APPLICATIONS

Hydronic underfloor heating is ideal for areas with a combined surface of over 60m2. Lounges and open-plan concepts are perfect for hydronic underfloor heating. Hydronic floor heating is installed in the following systems: in-screed or in-slab for various hard type floorings like tile and concrete and diffusion plates for under battened timber floors.

An in-screed system is a dynamic system that allows the user to make adjustments to the temperature relatively quickly, especially when combined with insulation. An in-slab hydronic floor heating system is a ‘set and forget style system. As the pipework is in the slab, it will heat the entire slab and create a thermal mass that holds the heat. This essentially makes it a storage system that holds the heat for a long period of time so even when the system is switched off, it will take time for the heat to dissipate.
Whether you are contemplating a renovation or including hydronic underfloor heating for your new home, below is a guide that will help to determine your ideal installation for your floor covering type.
