  1. Underfloor Heating Operation

    Once a wet underfloor heating system has been installed there is really nothing to do for the client.  The client/end user only needs to set the room thermostats to work as they prefer them to work.  Wet underfloor heating systems will normally start 2 – 3 h before a radiator systems in a screeded floor, […]

  2. Underfloor Heating Manifolds

    Most underfloor heating systems above 25 sqm will need an underfloor heating manifold. The underfloor heating manifolds should be located centrally in the building.  Normally one manifold can do up to 180 – 200 sqm floor area depending on the floor layout.  A normal four bedroom property will have one manifold for each floor. Our underfloor […]

  3. Underfloor Heating Outputs and Heat Losses

    Water underfloor heating outputs are quoted in W/sqm.  The maximum underfloor heating output for underfloor heating in a concrete floor is 100 W/sqm, the maximum heat output for a timber suspended floor is 70 W/sqm. Watts is a measure of heat energy required.  The higher the W/sqm, the more energy is used by the heat […]

  6. Underfloor Heating & Hot Water Control

    The UH1 underfloor heating wiring centre also takes care of the hot water control.  Controlling the hot water from the UH1 underfloor heating Heatmiser wiring centre makes sense, not only because it simplifies the wiring, but also because it enables you to control your hot water centrally from the Heatmiser underfloor heating TouchPad and remotely […]

  7. Underfloor Heating Guidelines

    Below we have compiled some useful guidelines to help answer some common questions about the installation of water underfloor heating; Flow Rate To calculate the flow rate for each underfloor heating loop, take the loop length and divide by 40. For example, 100 m loop length/40 = 2.5 l/min flow for the underfloor heating loop. […]

  8. Underfloor Heating Automatic Bypass Valve

    Normally the underfloor heating flow rates per underfloor heating water loop is between 1 – 4 l/min.  The flow rate for the water underfloor heating system can be regulated on the underfloor heating return manifold.  Each loop can be adjusted to suitable settings.  ie longer loops would normally be fully open and the shorter loops […]

  9. Flooring Tips For Underfloor Heating

    Most floor finishes will work well with underfloor heating.  Always check what the maximum surface temperature the floor finish will operate at with the manufacturer of the floor finish. If using wooden boards for underfloor heating, it is best to use engineered boards, one layer 21 mm.  Avoid using wood on top of wood.  Maximum 25 […]

  10. HENCO Underfloor Heating Pipes

    HENCO underfloor heating pipes are normally bent without any special tools.  When the pipes have been in service and temperature and pressure decrease, the pipe contracts.  With an approved fitting range the grip between the pipe and fittings is stronger than the contraction force and does not give any problem provided the installation of the […]
