Watermarcs Plumbing & Heating are specialists in installing underfloor heating for the home. Underfloor heating can significantly reduce your home heating bills by as much as 40%. In addition, it’s economical to run, virtually maintenance free and utilises effective controls to provide the most comfortable all round warmth of any heating system.
Far more cost efficient than conventional radiators, which heat the top of the room first, underfloor heating operates at lower temperatures distributing heat up in a uniform way to create a warm cosy environment that prevents cold spots, creates space and adds immediate significant value to your home.
Watermarcs Plumbing and Heating install underfloor heating systems throughout Newbury and surrounding areas. If you’re thinking about replacing your heating system and would like a no obligation estimate or just want to know more about underfloor heating then please give us a call on 01635 569094.
How does underfloor heating work?
Heat generated by traditional radiators is transferred from a small surface area far hotter than the space it is heating whereas wet underfloor heating transfers heat from a very large surface area, which is only slightly warmer than the room.
The majority of modern underfloor heating systems are warm water systems which integrate high tech plastic pipe either within or just below the floor. Water at a temperature of around 34°C is circulated through the pipes and this warms the floor to a surface temperature of 25-28°C, about the same temperature as the palm of your hand.
Radiant energy emitted by the floor is partly reflected by each surface and partly absorbed. Where it is absorbed, that surface becomes a secondary emitter. After a while, all surfaces become secondary emitters. Furnishings themselves radiate energy and the room becomes evenly and uniformly warmed. The energy reaches into every corner of the room – no cold spots, no hot ceilings and no cold feed.
