Types of Under Floor Heating

Here at Joy Group, we are happy to advise customers on the different types of under floor heating that are available. By having a better understanding of these systems, you can make an informed choice as to which would be most suitable for your home or business. Continue reading to find out exactly what comprises an under floor heating system.

The Three Main Designs

Under floor heating systems have three different design types, all of which have their unique benefits. These designs are:

Solid Floor

This choice is most popular for new build homes and is a permanent feature that is built into concrete or screed floors. Insulation is fitted into the floor in adherence with building regulations, and the piping is then laid and set in screed.

Suspended Floor

A suspended floor heating system is inserted between the joists or the battens of the structure, which is done by accessing them from either above or below. The casing for this system consists of a tongue and groove floor board, which can then be covered by any kind of flooring.

Floating Floor

Through this type of system, the pipes are installed above an existing solid or wood floor. After being pressed into a preformed heat emitter plate, the pipes then rest into the insulation panel that has been fitted into the floating floor. After tongue and groove boards are laid on top, you can then fit your choice of flooring.

The Way Forward For Heating Systems

These different types of designs mean that the whole of your property can feel the benefits of under floor heating. Some of the many advantages include:

• A Maintenance-Free System
• Cheaper To Run Than Conventional Radiators
• Silent Heating That Frees Up Space
• More Comfortable Room Temperature

While there are many benefits to under floor heating though, it is worth mentioning that it can be a costly and chaotic installation process if being fitted into an existing structure. We at Joy Group believe all of our customers should be aware of these costs as we want them to make an informed choice. Whatever you decide, you count on us to get the job done whether it’s on a domestic or commercial basis.
