Underfloor heating

Keep your home warm and cozy using hydronic underfloor space heating

Underfloor hydronic heating is a smart integrated space heating solution. The largest advantage is the way it maintains the temperature, through radiant design, rather than fans. This means no drafts in winter and no additional energy required to get the home to a set temperature, as it will be maintained automatically all year round.

 

How does Underfloor Hydronic heating works?

The principle of hydronic heat is simple. A hot liquid, usually water, is circulated continuously through piping to transfer heat to the air of a home. Because the water is recirculated, the system does not increase water usage.

Underfloor Heating combined with Solar Panels

When combined with solar power generation, enables energy stored in the floor (like a battery) to be released in the evenings when needed. This represents big savings at the end of the months, as the electricity being

Benefits of Floor Heating

  • As different heat sources can be tied into water based underfloor heating, the system is future proof.
  • With underfloor heating you can install all floor coverings: wood, tiles, concrete, carpet or any other floor covering.
  • Being radiant heat, hard surfaces will feel warm making them a pleasure to touch. Best of all there are no uncomfortable air currents, cold spots or draughts.

It provides significant health benefits

Radiant heating eliminates dampness and excessive humidity, and reduces mould and dust mites considerably as your home is kept dry.
It’s the perfect heating solution for people with asthma and allergies as dust doesn’t get blown around the home. You’ll notice a big difference in the reduction of condensation on windows too.
Your furniture and drapes also stay cleaner thanks to the elimination of dust being blown over surfaces as is the case with forced air heating systems.

It’s safe for children

With no flames, fans or hot surfaces to burn, it’s safe for children and the elderly. Circulation also improves because your feet are kept warm.

It’s a designers dream

As there are no grills or baseboard heaters you can place furniture anywhere in the room and hang drapes right down to the floor.
Coupled with economical running costs compared to other electric radiant systems, means that hydronic underfloor heating is becoming highly desired by discerning kiwi homeowners and house builders.
