What happens if I damage a pipe ?

If you damage a pipe you can repair it by using a compression socket. This is very rare as you do not need to drill through the floor after it has been laid.

What is the minimum depth needed for Underfloor Heating?

If the floor is already insulated it would lift you’re floor by 43mm, 25mm timber battens with pipes between using screed or aluminium plates. Then a structural floor i.e. 18mm chipboard floor

Is Underfloor Heating cheaper to run than radiators?

Yes on average between 15-40% because of the low running temp usually between 30-55 deg

How do I control my Underfloor Heating?

UFH is controlled by ether programmable room stats in all the rooms or by room stats in every room and a overall time control (programmable room stat)

What is the maximum length of pipe in 1 loop?

The maximum length of pipe for 1 loop is usually between 100-120m.

Does the Underfloor Heating go under Kitchen units, showers & bath?

If you know exactly where  the kitchen units  are going then you would not put ufh under them because it would warm the units and its contents (pre cooked food). Baths / showers don’t usually have ufh under because you have to fix through the floor.

Will Underfloor Heating work well in my conservatory?

Yes because you run the ufh separately from the rest of your heating system as you need in conservatory to meet with part L of the building regs.

Do i need any special tool to fit Underfloor Heating?

No  you just need something to cut the pipe and a hose pipe.

Back To Top



My heating system already has a pump will I still need one on my manifold?

Yes the boiler pump  only pumps water to the manifold then the manifold pump pumps water round the floor.

Back To Top



Do I need a qualified electrician to connect my Underfloor Heating up?

Yes you need a  Part P qualified electrician

Back To Top



Do I need a manifold for my Underfloor Heating?

Yes, you need one so you can lower the water temp and pump water around the floor.

Back To Top

 


How long does underfloor heating take to warm up?

Underfloor heating takes anywhere from 1 hour. This is dependent from heat losses in the room to amount of screed on top or underneath of the pipework. The initial warm up period will take longer because the floor is cold. The floor will warm up quicker once the heating is up and running because the floor will still be warm from the previous heat cycle.

How long will the AL-PERT underfloor heating pipe last?

The underfloor heating pipework has a manufacturers warranty of 50 years.
