Underfloor Heating in a single Area

2 Loops in a Room
When installing an underfloor heating pack into a single room it is laid in 2 equal loops. Laying 2 equal loops means when your underfloor heating turns on it will warm up equally. Your loops do not need to be exactly equal just lay pipework in half of the room with 1 loop and the other half in the 2nd loop. 3 or 4 runs of fixing rail should be laid dependent on the length of room and clip every 1m-1.5m.

You will have instructions showing pipe lengths & pipe centre’s for each room some rooms may have more than 1 loop per room dependent on the size (Maximum loop length of 120m). Each room will be controlled with a thermostat smaller rooms maybe controlled with another room for example KITCHEN & UTILITY, HALL & WC. 3 or 4 runs of fixing rail should be laid dependent on the length of room and clip every 1m-1.5m.

Example of House Layout


Underfloor Heating in a timber floor using 25mm Screed (200mm Pipe Centres)

When installing underfloor heating into a timber floor at 200mm centre’s pipework is usually laid as  2 runs per joists (if joist are at 400mm centre’s). Notch the end of the joists about 100mm from wall this will carry UFH pipe coming into the room and the pipework turning into the next joist see Drawing below (Maximum loop length of 120m). Insulation or nail Clips should be every 1m-1.5m.

Cover approximately 80 percent of the floor with the aluminium plates. Notch the end of the joists about 100mm from the wall this will carry the UFH pipe coming into the room and the pipework turning into the next joist see Drawing below (Maximum loop length of 120m). Clips should be nailed when the pipe cross’s the joists.
