Underfloor Heating

With several years experience in the installation of underfloor heating systems throughout the UK, with bases in Sheffield and Leicester, the team at Self Build & Contract Floors will ensure that your job is completed to the highest possible standards.


 


How does underfloor heating work?

Water from the heat source circulates through the pipes which are laid under the floor in one continuous loop. 

The pipes for each room (or zone) all run to and from the systems manifold which is located in a convenient/accessible place. 

The pipes will heat the whole floor, so no matter where you are in the room it will all be the same temperature.

 

Why choose underfloor heating?

Underfloor heating provides warmth from the floor up instead of heating the ceiling area first. 

A lower temperature of water is used because the larger surface area does not need to emit as much heat per square metre as the use of radiators.

In turn the boiler is consuming less fuel meaning lower running costs. 

Underfloor heating emits a greater proportion of its heat as radiant heat rather than convected heat.

Except for the room thermostats the underfloor heating system are completely hidden, giving more freedom to design your room.

Underfloor Heating Installation

With decades of experience in installation of underfloor heating systems, the team at Self Build & Contract Floors will ensure that the job is completed to the highest possible standards while keeping disruption to a minimum

A lower temperature of water is used because the larger surface area does not need to emit as much heat per square metre as the use of radiators.

 


So just how does underfloor heating work?

We guide water from a heat source to circulates through pipes laid under the floor placed in a continuous loop setup. 

Pipes for each room run to and from the systems manifold which is located in an accessible and convenient location for the system

The pipes will then heat the entire floor, so no matter where you stand in the room, you will receive the exact same temperature.

 

So why choose underfloor heating?

The Underfloor heating systems from Selfbuild & Contract Floors Ltd provides warmth from the floor up. This is different from traditional heat sources (radiators) which heat the ceiling area first. 

They use a lower water temperature because the larger surface area does not need to give out as much heat per square metre.

This means that the boiler is consuming less fuel giving you lower annual running costs. 

Underfloor heating emits a greater proportion of radiant heat, away from traditional convected heat.

Except for small and discrete room thermostats controls, our underfloor heating systems are completely hidden, giving you less wasted wall space and more freedom to design your room.
