More and more families, as well as commercial entities in the UK are choosing to go with underfloor heating as their preferred method of heating. The reasons are clear, underfloor heating is efficient, low cost, and doesn’t decrease the quality of the air in your space, making life far more comfortable whilst keeping you warm.
Apart from those great reasons alone, underfloor heating is a wonderful space saver compared to hot water heating for example, which relies on the deployment of rather awkward and ugly looking radiator heaters. You’ll also get better heating consistency within your home or office, which means decreases in “cold spots” and a better overall experience. These are just a few of the benefits that choosing an underfloor heating system will provide you.
All that being said about benefits, it’s realistic to expect that sometimes your system (whether or not it’s an underfloor heating system or other) will require some kind of repairs and maintenance throughout it’s lifetime of use. When you need repairs on your system, it’s important to have a reliable, fully certified and professional maintenance and repairs provider on hand, and that’s what The Underfloor Heating Company can provide you.
For Previous Installations – Knowing Your Underfloor Heating Type
If you know that your existing underfloor heating system has some issues and is in need of repairs or maintenance, then it’s important to firstly know a little bit about your current installation. Many people will have a variety of underfloor heating known as the wet, hydroponic variation.
This type of system relies on the hot water piping being laid out underneath the floor in an evenly spaced fashion. This piping system is connected to your hot water system, and allows heated water to be evenly spread underneath your floor. This type of underfloor heating can be installed underneath different types of flooring, but the type will have an impact on how quickly the whole system is able to work to heat your home or office area. Obviously, the thicker flooring types that integrate materials like concrete are going to mean that longer heating times are involved, at least initially upon turning on the system.
Another type of underfloor heating system that you may have already had installed is called electric or “dry” underfloor heating. This type of underfloor heating requires electric wires to be laid underneath the floor, and is considered much lower profile than the other types of underfloor heating, as it doesn’t add any large degree of height to the floor, so it is often a better option where space is limited.
This electric variety of underfloor heating uses heating mats and electric cable systems in the larger areas of your space, and in smaller areas where those systems are more awkward to install, it will often employ the use of more loose fitting and flexible wiring. These systems are often more efficient and cheaper to run than the traditional LPG or oil heated homes or commercial spaces, and don’t require any gas connection as they run solely on electrical power.
Keeping Your System Running Smoothly
There are some simple measures that you can take to ensure the lowest likelihood of having any issues with your underfloor system. For example, during the warmer months when you are typically not using your system, it’s important to still switch it on every month or so for about 30 mins at least. This will prevent the sticking of various pumps and valves from inactivity, and just this simple precaution can save you a lot of time and money down the line, as it will prevent you having to pay for companies like us to fix these issues which are easily avoided. So remember, even though it’s warm outside, your underfloor heating system will greatly benefit from at least SOME use in the summer months.
Another thing to note is that quite often if you do need repairs on your current system, it won’t always be necessary to have to go underneath the floor to address the problem. Quite often issues are related to wiring, pump problems, pipes that have gotten blocked for some reason. Whatever issues may arise with your system, with The Underfloor Heating Company at your command and nearby in the Surrey area, you’ll have no issues getting the problem fixed up quickly, and as cost efficiently as possible. We also offer maintenance plans which can help you to save money in the long run, as regular maintenance prevents more serious issues from forming, which can really drain your finances later on.
