Underfloor Heating

Barkwell Plumbing and Heating can install and provide underfloor heating which is invisible – so no space-consuming radiators. Underfloor Heating requires only low temperature hot water and is ideal for use with modern condensing boilers. With Underfloor Heating, comfort levels are high and running costs are low.

Why Underfloor Heating?

Utilising today's modern multilayer pipes, control systems and high efficiency boilers, the underfloor heating systems of today are extremely comfortable and controllable. Radiators are no longer needed so giving more room space. The heat is more evenly distributed and dust is not circulated.

Underfloor heating from the whole floor area of the house gently warms the air above, eliminating cold spots. The warm air convects from the floor surface losing approximately 2 degrees centigrade at 2.0 meters above the floor, which makes the system ideal for all ceiling heights.

Independent tests reveal that the most acceptable indoor climate is one in which the floor temperature ranges between 19-29°C and the air temperature at head level ranges between 20 and 24°C. With radiator or convector heating systems a vertical temperature gradient is produced; colder at foot level than at the head.

Underfloor heating has made it possible to reduce energy consumption by using low water temperatures. These systems, based on the development of complex and very high quality plastic pipe, such as the multilayer pipe, now account for over 60% of some European heating markets.

Barkwell Plumbing and Heating offer a range of Underfloor Heating plans to best suit your needs, as well as ensuring the best maintenance and control methods available for you.
