Why choose underfloor heating?

If you're looking for a sustainable heating system that provides comfortable warmth, underfloor heating is the perfect choice. Underfloor heating eliminates all obstructing elements in your home. Every cm² in every room can be optimally used. In addition, unlike traditional heating elements, dust formation is avoided.

Advantages and possibilities of underfloor heating:

  • The ideal combination with energy-efficient heating applications, such as heat pumps and solar heaters.
  • A significant reduction in energy costs compared to other heating systems...
  • No need for radiators, i.e. the maximum space can be used.
  • Aesthetically unpleasant heating elements are a thing of the past: decorate each room according to your taste.
  • Hygienic advantage: no dust formation, unlike conventional heating.

A pleasant climate all year round:

Nowadays, pipes are also used in floors to cool down spaces during hot periods. This ensures that these spaces always have a comfortable climate, whatever the season. Wall heating can also be an ideal complement, for example to bring smaller areas to a comfortable temperature.

Some basic principles:

  • The winding pattern: the pipes are laid in the shape of a snake. This is the easiest way to install underfloor heating.
  • The spiral pattern: the till and return pipes are placed next to each other in a spiral, ensuring even heat distribution over the entire surface of the group. 
  • In domestic applications, underfloor heating is usually laid with a 16 mm diameter pipe; in industrial projects, the pipe diameter is larger. With a larger diameter, there is less resistance per linear metre and longer circuits are created with the same pressure drop.
  • The distance between the pipes, also called the centre distance, determines the output and the surface temperature. Underfloor heating can be installed with a centre-to-centre distance of 10, 15, 20 or 25 cm between pipes.
