Underfloor Heating

Frequent questions

The under floor heating is a reliable and efficient form of heating used for many years in European countries. The heat is evenly diffused in the space mainly by thermal radiation, giving a sense of thermal warmth, with low operating costs. The Under floor heating can be applied to new houses, renovations or building extensions.

It operates with low temperature water circulating in pipes encased on the floor. The regulatory collector switches, control the flow of water depending on the desired temperature that set by the thermostat.

None. The Como-floor pipe that used produced from cross linked high strength polyethylene at temperatures and carries oxygen barrier. The Production and the quality control of the pipe agree with European regulations and German DIN. The physical and mechanical pipe resistance is certified by the German SKZ institute with certificate number Α 400 and the oxygen barrier is certified by MPA-NRW German institute according to standard DIN 4726.

Yes. If caused damage to the pipe during work (e.g. pipe drilling) is possible with a special waterproof accessory to restored.

The collector of under floor heating must be bar type without compounds for greater tightness and bring regulatory switches and valves for mounting electro thermal engines to be done properly and according to the study of circuits and the operation control of each space.

Due to the different requirements of each construction and the particularities of the application of the study is necessary. So we have to follow to the letter by a specialist workshop in order to ensure safe, smooth and economical operation of the system according to the requirements of each employer.

No. When faithfully followed a study under floor heating in the application, then the desired room temperature is achieved, without the temperature of the floor to exceed the 29oC. At this temperature the floor is warm and comfortable to walk anyone, even with bare feet.

All floor types can be used in an under floor heating system, it is sufficient to study installation requires something similar to ensure smooth, safe and economic operation.

Generally, the under floor heating is more expensive than the heating with radiators but offers savings money with smaller accounts. The amortization of this investment is carried out quickly because of the low cost of operation and maintenance. Finally, beyond the optimal conditions wellness and thermal warmth offered, the under floor heating adds value to the building.

Just because the transfer of heat begin from the surface of the floor and not on the amount of radiators of classical heating (1.20 m.) Or air conditioning (2.50 m.) Manage to achieve desired temperatures even in areas of high heat level because the operating room height (about 2,10m.) rather than the roof of the building (as in classic systems). It also covers the needs of buildings with large windows where there are no available external walls for mounting radiators, so the floor heating helps the modern architectural designs.

Because of the low temperature water required under floor heating operation, it is compatible with any source of energy whether for oil boiler or gas boiler, air heat pump water or geothermal energy, solar energy, fireplaces etc.
