Underfloor Heating System Servicing In The Greater London Area
Underfloor heating systems are heating up, in more ways than one! Because this type of heating system is so efficient and convenient, it’s no wonder so many families and companies are installing them in their homes and businesses. Underfloor heating systems, whether you choose to install an electric or water system, evenly displace heat over the entire floor of your home. The heat rises from the floor, keeping your home or business warm and cosy without any cold spots. These heating systems are also cost efficient, saving the average family up to 25% on domestic fuel bills and up to 50% on heating costs for commercial services. And the benefits don’t stop there. Underfloor heating systems mean cleaner air in your home or business, and they are much more energy efficient than older, traditional heating systems. Radiators are intrusive and can be a burn hazard.

Underfloor heating systems are out of sight and safe, and they have the added bonus of being extremely efficient, practically maintenance free. However, owners of underfloor heating systems should perform some service on their system to ensure that it continues to run smoothly.
Servicing Your Underfloor Heating System
Underfloor heating systems are designed to work maintenance free for many years, making them convenient for busy families. It does make sense, though, to perform routine service checks to head off any major problems that could occur. Although it’s easy to overlook the needs of your underfloor heating system in the warmer months, families or companies with this type of system should run it for about half an hour each month during the summer. This will reduce the chance of the circulating pumps and valves sticking. Plus, checking that your system is running smoothly during the warmer months means that families with underfloor heating won’t get an uncomfortable surprise when they turn on their heating system on the first cold day to find that the floor won’t heat up.
The pressure in the heating system should be checked every now and then to ensure that your floor is heating evenly. If you’re using a wet underfloor heating system, it might be necessary to refill the system, especially at the beginning of the winter season. In rare cases, the pressure cannot be maintained, and you’ll notice that your floor is not heating evenly. If this happens, it’s time to call in the experts at The Underfloor Heating Company London.
Another issue that may occur is an air bubble. Should an air bubble form in your underfloor heating system, it can disturb the circulation of the warm water beneath your floor. It is necessary to check that your system had air bled out of it by checking the manual air bleed valves. Again, if this is something you don’t feel comfortable doing yourself, don’t hesitate to call our experts. Another point of concern might be leaks. Although this is a very rare occurrence as underfloor heating systems are designed so well, leakage is not unheard of. If you notice that you need to refill your system often, then you probably have a leak, which means the fittings will need to be tightened. A more severe problem might call for the manifold itself to be dismantled so that the washers and seals could be replaced.
