What is Underfloor Heating?
Underfloor heating is a heating system that is installed beneath the floor finishes which transfer heat to the floor space within a room. The heating system consists of a network of pipes installed beneath the floor and a control system.
The temperature can also be controlled through a control system to provide continual, efficient and comfortable heating distributed throughout the room.
How does an Underfloor Heating System Work?
An underfloor heating system releases heat by gently warming water which circulate in pipes installed within the floor construction. The water is heated via heat pumps.
If your floor heating system detects that a rise in the temperature is required through its thermostatic control, additional heat is passed through a manifold where it circulates evenly before passing once again through the pipes.
The end result is a warm and comfortable environment which maximises living space because the room will be free of radiators and pipe work as the whole system stays hidden under the floor finishes with Liquid Screed throughout Cornwall home floors.
At Liquid Screed Cornwall, we use state of the art techniques while installing underfloor heating for our clients. Our underfloor heating system is based on the use of very high-quality piping, and a well-thought out structure system designed as per the specification of project requirements.
Why Choose Liquid Screed Cornwall for Underfloor Heating?
Liquid screed is a thinner mixture compared to the typical concrete and sand mixture. This means that it can be laid as a thin layer over UFH (underfloor heating) without causing obstruction in the instalment of the system.
Underfloor heating systems work more effectively at lower heat. Liquid screed attributes in keeping the system at less heated due to its thin nature, and UFH works efficiently due to its closer proximity to the surface.
Liquid screed is also a good conductor of heat, making it the best screed to be laid on top of the underfloor heating system.
Apart from these qualities, Liquid Screed makes the ground even and levelled for the final finishes to look professional and aesthetically pleasing.
At Liquid Screed Cornwall, we have the best knowledge to optimise the liquid screed flooring to ensure that it is at optimum usability along with underfloor heating systems installed by us.
Health Benefits of an Underfloor Heating System
Apart from fulfilling heating needs, underfloor heating offers many other benefits as well. Health benefits are often overlooked while researching the types of liquid screed and heating systems. The decision of installing Underfloor heating system while getting your floor work done can prove to be beneficial to your health in the long run.
Here are a few health benefits of installing Underfloor heating with Liquid Screed in Cornwall:
Keeps the air dust-free
The biggest health benefit that can be achieved by having underfloor heating system installed is the reduction in respiratory problems. UFH systems do not use convection currents to warm a home opposed to the traditional wall radiators.
Convection currents move in a circular motion to warm the room and in this process; they capture and redistribute dust particles in the room. These dust particles floating freely in the air which makes them far easier for the home residents to breathe dust in. It can worsen the conditions of the ones who suffer from asthma or other respiratory problems.
However, warming the room gently via underfloor heating system ensures that there is far less air movement for the dust particles to get caught up and so your family is less likely to inhale dust as they breathe.
Prohibits dust mites from growing
Homes that are heated by traditional radiators will often have cold floor areas with raised levels of humidity nurturing dust mites.
Using UFH lessens the amount of moisture in your carpets or floor finishes and it is this moisture that the dust mite needs to survive and grow.
According to a recent survey, in the UK alone, there are currently 5.4 million people who are currently receiving treatment for Asthma, with 1.1 million of those being children.
Of those, about 90% say that dust mites are a trigger for their condition, so it makes sense to do all that we can to keep the dust mites bay.
Installing an underfloor heating system lowers the number of dust mites in your home by up to 80%.
Assists in preventing joint pain
The people who suffer from arthritis will also find Underfloor Heating to be extremely beneficial. The colder months can be harsh on the people who suffer from joint pain, and many believe that periods of high humidity and low barometric pressure can worsen symptoms considerably.
Being in contact with a constant heat source such as UFH installed with Liquid screed in Cornwall home floor is thought to relieve some of the pain felt by sufferers, especially those with arthritis in their legs, feet or ankles.
Safety from burns
Although not directly a health issue, there’s also the fact that traditional radiators can pose risks of burns.
This is particularly true for both the very young and the elderly members of your family.
Radiators can become extremely hot and there is always a risk of burning if there isn’t a sufficient guard in place.
Many care homes are now doing away with radiators altogether and installing underfloor heating systems while renovating their establishments with Liquid screed Cornwall in order to protect their residents, chiefly those who are living with dementia.
The health benefits of underfloor heating are evident, but they are often seen as a secondary consideration to things such as cost. However, considering its long term benefits, it is highly cost-effective option to keep your home or offices warmer, healthier and safer.
