Each project is different. In most cases, yes you can and we are always willing to discuss any queries you may have regarding installing underfloor heating in your home.
Underfloor heating can cost anything from £395 for 20sqm.
Yes UFH can connect to any heat source, electric/gas/oil boiler solar or ground source heat pump
Yes Ufh can be laid in a timber floor there are two methods please see Floor Constructions
UFH can be laid on a concrete floor as long as the floor already has insulation under the concrete if not insulation would have to be laid on top see Floor Constructions
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.
Yes as long as the floor is insulated or can be insulated see Floor Constructions
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
Any competent person can lay underfloor heating see 5 Easy Steps
Yes on average between 15-40% because of the low running temp usually between 30-55 deg
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)
The maximum length of pipe for 1 loop is usually between 100-120m.
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.
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.
No you just need something to cut the pipe and a hose pipe.
Yes the boiler pump only pumps water to the manifold then the manifold pump pumps water round the floor.
Yes you need a Part P qualified electrician
Yes, you need one so you can lower the water temp and pump water around the floor.
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.
The underfloor heating pipework has a manufacturers warranty of 50 years.
