Under-floor Heating

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT UNDER TILE HEATING

 
Under floor heating is regarded by some people as the ultimate luxury, yet these days more and more homeowners are finding that under floor Systems DO NOT Break the budget! It has taken 2000 years to wake up to under floor heating. The Romans may have pioneered it with wood furnaces.
 
If you are building or refurbishing your home, consider enhancing its value by investing in under tile heating, which is not that expensive. In fact, the cost of under tile heating is 65% lower than traditional methods.
 
Traditional heating systems warm the air immediately around the heat source and as the warm air rises, the heat is concentrated high in the room, while the floor stays colder.
Under tile heating systems utilize the floor slab as a heat reservoir, radiating heat upwards from the floor, resulting in a much more even heat distribution throughout the room, avoiding unhealthy pockets of hot and cold air which result in a cool ,unhealthy draft.
 
Our systems are easily installed between tiles and existing screeded surfaces and therefore operates very effectively. When installing Under-tile heaters, waterproof heating cables (1 to 1.5 mm in diameter) insulated with fluorocarbon and/ or heating resistant polymers are placed underneath the ceramic surface in a self-leveling screed, hardly altering the floor level. In addition, we make use of special alarm monitors to sound an alarm if the heating system was to be damaged while tiling.
 

SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF UNDER TILE HEATING INCLUDE

 

COMFORT
Heat radiates evenly from under the floor so there are no draughts or concentrated heat sources, resulting in a consistently comfortable and even room temperature, which is slightly warmer at your feet and cooler at your head. The entire available floor area can be covered if required. This provides even heating with no cold areas (cold spots). The systems operate silently.
HEALTH & SAFETY
The systems operate without generating smoke, fumes or dust.Our systems are manufactured to the highest specifications of quality and subjected to stringent safety testing at 5000 Volts. The element insulation is tough, completely waterproof and resistant to chemical attack.Installation is easily done in renovated as well as new homes.
TECHNOLOGY
Heating components have the benefit of over 30 years of European technology for applications that demand harsh conditions, continuous operation at high temperatures and long working life.
ECONOMICAL
Under tile heating is largely maintenance free. Thermostats ensure a perfect temperature with up to a potential 65% lower electricity costs than conventional heating.
 
A vastly quicker response time when compared to conventional underfloor heating. You only heat the area you need, when you need it. To give you an idea of the economy of Warmup …A typical bathroom of 2.5sqm uses less power than three 100 Watt light bulbs.
