Underfloor heating works by pumping a controlled flow of warm water from any heat source through plastic tubing embedded in the floor. Because the emitting area is large, sufficient warmth is provided even on a cold winter day with no need for supplementary heating.
The benefits of underfloor heating are numerous here are a few:
Whatever the style and size of the project – traditional, contemporary, large or small – the lack of obtrusive radiators will release valuable wall and floor space, allowing freedom to design layouts and make optimum use of each room.
Lower Heating Bills
With fuel costs on the increase it is more important than ever to install an energy efficient heating system. The low system water temperatures of underfloor heating will enhance the efficiency of condensing boilers and give fuel savings of typically 25–40% (source BSRIA). Even greater savings are achievable when a heat pump is used as they operate most efficiently when used in conjunction with underfloor heating. Nu-Heat’s range of heating controls will optimise system performance and the latest generation of thermal store cylinder, the EnergyMaster2™ is available with solar coils to ensure maximum environmental benefit.
Radiators heat the air by convection, drawing cold air across the floor and up to the ceiling. In contrast, underfloor heating produces mainly radiant warmth. The entire floor is heated meaning warmth is radiated evenly causing no stuffiness, draughts or cold spots. Feet are gently warmed whilst the head is cool – ideal comfort conditions.
At Oaklands we are working together with Nu Heat to bring you the best products and service within the renewable energy market. Nu-Heat is the largest specialist supplier of warm water underfloor heating systems to the UK domestic market. Whether you want a one zone underfloor heating kit for fitting into a traditional system, or a full heat pump and solar powered system, we can supply and fit everything you need for a more carbon neutral heating system. The Nu-Heat range of warm water underfloor heating, ground source, air source, and exhaust air heat pumps as well as solar thermal collectors, all integrate seamlessly to provide a heating and hot water system tailored to the individual needs of each customer. The reputation of the company is very important to us, therefore we will always discuss the details of the project with the customer to ensure that the Nu-Heat systems meet the highest expectations.
