Underfloor Heating Geelong
Geelong can get chilly in the cold season, and underfloor heating can be a lifesaver! It is an effortless and economical way to keep you snuggly warm during those harsh cold nights and even days as the weather can be quite a handful.
Indeed, installing radiant heating can be more expensive than the standard house heating methods, but underfloor heating can save you more in the long run. If you decide to jump on this growing trend, Geelong Tiling is an expert in assisting you and installing underfloor heating. Still, before making a final decision, there are things you must know about underfloor heating.
How Does it Work?
Underfloor heating works by adding pipework to the floor as doing so transforms the whole ground into a radiator. The system also uses chiefly radiant heat, which is the most convenient form of heating since it gives an even circulation of warmness over the entire room. Due to how it is planted and placed, using underfloor heating guarantees no cold spots.
You can also consider that a standard radiator can be as hot as 75°C, while an underfloor heating mode has a much more moderate and safer temperature that ranges between 25-27°C.
Different Types of Underfloor Heating
There are two major types of underfloor heating that we, at Geelong Tiling, are experienced in installing:
Wet underfloor heating or warm water.
The wet underfloor or warm water heating system uses pipes fueled by warm water, and the system is connected to a heat source powered by a heat pump or boiler hidden within the floor. It is best used in new constructions and larger areas.
Electric powered underfloor heating.
Electric underfloor heating operates by having a tiny warming wire placed under the floor level. When the system is active, the wire heats up and warms the floor surface. Competent D-I-Y-ers love this method due to its affordability and simple procedure.
What are the Best Flooring Materials for Underfloor Heating?
Another great thing about underfloor heating is that it works with most of the flooring materials available in the market. Materials such as stones and tiles are commonly accepted as the best choice for covering since they can proficiently absorb and radiate heat in the area. On the contrary, timber flooring can be a bit trickier. You would have to pick the right service to make it work effectively, and even some carpets and underlay can be suitable materials.
There are so many reasons why underfloor heating is a good investment, and if you decide to use this system to warm your toes next winter, contacting Geelong Tiling would be a wise choice. We are trained to provide underfloor heating of the best quality.
