Why choose underfloor heating?

If you are looking for a sustainable heating system that provides a pleasant warmth, underfloor heating is the perfect choice. Underfloor heating eliminates any obstructive elements in your home. Every cm² of every room can be used optimally. Also, as opposed to traditional heating elements, dust accumulation is avoided.

Advantages & possibilities of underfloor heating:

  • The ideal combination with energy-efficient heating applications, such as heat pumps and solar water heaters.
  • A significant energy cost reduction compared with other heating systems.
  • No need for radiators, i.e. the maximum available space can be used.
  • Aesthetically displeasing heating elements are a thing of the past: decorate any room to your heart’s content.
  • Hygienic advantage: no dust accumulation, as opposed to conventional heating.

Pleasant climate all year long

Nowadays, pipes in floors are also used to cool off spaces during hot periods. This ensures that these spaces, regardless of the season, always have a pleasant climate. Also, wall heating can be the perfect addition, for instance to give smaller surfaces a pleasant temperature.

Some basic principles:

  • The meandering pattern: the pipes are laid in the form of a snake. This is the simplest way to install underfloor heating.
  • The spiral pattern: the supply and return pipes are placed next to each other in a spiral, ensuring a uniform heat distribution over the entire group surface.
  • In domestic applications, underfloor heating is usually laid using a pipe with a diameter of 16 mm. In industrial projects, the pipe diameters will be larger. With a greater diameter there is less resistance per running metre and longer circuits with the same pressure loss are created.
  • The distance between the pipes, also called the centre-to-centre distance, determines the power and the surface temperature. Underfloor heating can be laid with a centre-to-entre distance of 10, 15, 20 or 25 cm between the pipes.
