Underfloor heating provides the most comfortable, even warmth of any heating system. It is economical to run and virtually maintenance free.
The Speedfit System has water being pumped from the Heat Pump to the underfloor heating manifold and then distributed to the heating circuits using Speedfit Barrier Pipe. The pipe is laid in concrete or suspended just below the surface of the floor.
In concrete floors, the pipe is laid on insulation and then covered with a screed which can be laid almost any type of floor covering.
For timber floors, spreader plates are laid between the joists and the floor decking or on the underside of the floor. Speedfit Pipe is pushed into the grooves on the plates.
The floor area is typically warmed to between 25ºC and 28ºC, providing an even distribution of heat at only slightly higher than room temperature. The system is controlled by one or more thermostats which control the manifold and boiler as required.
The Speedfit Underfloor Heating System offers many benefits to the consumer. These include:
Underfloor Heating Systems are designed to operate at lower temperatures than radiator systems, making them especially suitable for heat pumps. This results in reduced energy consumption and lower heating costs for the building.
It is simple to install, requiring the minimum of installation effort and little maintenance.
The system uses mainly radiant heat, the most comfortable form of heating, giving an even distribution of warmth over the whole room.
The system is unobtrusive and space saving which means every square metre of floor and wall space can be utilised giving freedom of interior design.
Compared to radiator systems the system is virtually silent running.
Reduced numbers of hot surfaces and sharp edges minimise risk of burns or injury.
Underfloor heating is easy to control and unlike conventional radiator systems, makes use of multi-zoning so each room benefits from individual time and temperature control, resulting in a more flexible heating system with lower running costs.
Underfloor heating is the perfect accompliment for heat pumps, suitable for use with the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly heating systems.
