Installation during construction assembly of the system is easiest when the house is being built. The pipes are mounted on insulation on the structural floor before the screed is installed. Brackets and clips keep the pipes in their place. After the sand cement screed has been poured, quarry tiles or other floor coverings can be laid.
Assembly at a later stage of the construction or in existing homes is no problem either. If floor boards are present these can be lifted and an underfloor heating system installed before re-laying new floor finishes. Where screeded floors are involved these can either be over-laid or broken up for new floor structures to be installed and incorporating the underfloor system at the same time.
You can also opt for wall heating. It goes without saying that the pipes will, in that case, be installed in the walls. Wall heating offers you the same advantages that floor heating gives you in terms of comfort and saving energy. The big difference with wall heating is that the pipes are situated much closer to the wall's surface.
As a result, the heating responds much quicker. You can finish or have your walls finished in the usual way with wallpaper or paint. The wall heating pipes are usually installed in bricks or sand-lime blocks that have been fitted with trenches especially for this purpose. Finally, you can also combine wall and floor heating. In doing so, you can have a very low level of temperature and a very high level of comfort.
Because of the increasingly warm summers and improved insulation, the temperature in your home keeps on rising. Wouldn't it be perfect to cool your home in a really easy way? This is possible with your current floor heating system.
Compared to an air-conditioning system, it offers lots of advantages. For example, cooling with your current floor heating installation is much cheaper and healthier. As well as having all the advantages of floor heating, you can also create a pleasant indoor climate all year round.
Your floor heating pipe is covered by up to fifty years of warranty, ten years of consequential loss warranty, a five-year system warranty and two years of warranty on the fittings of the manifold.
