Underfloor heating systems
Underfloor heating is fast becoming the most popular form of heating. The lower temperature of underfloor heating results in a gentle, even heat which is both more economical to run and more comfortable to live in. Also, the unobtrusive nature of underfloor heating provides greater flexibility to position plants and furniture.
Typically, the annual running cost of a correctly designed underfloor heating system is up to 30% less than a conventional radiator system. However, the whole system must be correctly designed to suit the building and heat sources in order for this efficiency to realised.
Underfloor heating can be installed in various types of floor construction relatively easily and most floor coverings are compatible. The pipe we employ is a high quality multi-layer pipe with a layer of aluminium to prevent oxygen ingress. The aluminium layer also adds the extra rigidity required to ensure the pipe retains its shape once bent, greatly aiding installation. To control the system we offer the choice of traditional dial-type thermostats for simplicity or fully-programmable digital thermostats for optimum efficiency.
Chekmer Heating Services sells a range of control systems for underfloor heating, too, as well as kits for small areas such as extensions and conservatories.
