Hydronic Underfloor Heating is a closed system that uses pipes embedded in the slab, in the screed or used with diffusion plates, all heated with hot water running through the pipes. This type of radiant heat keeps running costs down by allowing a range of energy efficient and environmentally friendly heating options.
We recommend the use of a natural gas boiler as the heat source for a hydronic system. The up-front cost is much lower than a heat pump and more reliable than solar collectors.
- Stainless steel heat exchanger with spacious coil ensures constant water flow over a long cycle and reduces debris accumulation
- High efficiency modulating pump with Pulse Width Modulation (PWM).
- High modulation range 12% – 100%.
- 92% seasonal efficiency and a power output of 20kW or 35kW.
- High efficiency circulation pump with automatic airvent.
- Electronically controlled modulating fan.
- Hydraulic group assembled on quick connections.
- Better integration with DHW system than standard combi boiler.
- European Energy Class A.
- Works with domestic hot water cylinders by built-in three-way valve.
The installation of a water-based system is complex due to the intricate design of the system. It is important to seek out a licensed professional for the installation.
In hydronic floor heating systems, water is warmed up to 50 degrees Celsius and circulates at a safe, low pressure through a network of pipes, valves, manifolds and switches. All of these components work together to heat the zoned areas:
This is a closed system, which means that the water that is introduced the day the system is commissioned is most likely to be the same for the rest of the life of the hydronic system. For this reason, it is crucial to select the best quality manifolds, pipes, boilers and anything that will be in contact with the water, because any impurity will worsen over time.
