Underfloor Heating

What is underfloor heating?

Under-floor heated rooms are heated by (lukewarm) water circulating in continuous pipe loops embedded in the concrete floors. The heat from the pipes is transferred through the concrete and up into the room  and produce a wonderful even heat throughout the  room.

At Wogan we have a database of  professional installers who  can meet you to discuss  underfloor heating in your home.

We stock  leading systems  from brands such as wavin  and quality plastics. Call one of our team  for adivce, technical informatio n and  prices .

Benefits  of underfloor heating

Because an underfloor heating system heats a room by radiation, through the floors, the air temperature is always highest at floor level and decreases steadily as it rises. Radiation, like the heat we get from the sun, is the most natural and comfortable form of heating.
 
A conventional radiator system heats a room by a process called convection which results in the floor being the coolest part of the room and a warm mass of air at the ceiling, not where you want the heat to be!
 
Underfloor heating has become a very popular form of heating in Ireland. Because of its superior comfort and efficiency, people are discovering that a radiant underfloor heating system has more advantages than they imagined. Underfloor heating gives a constant, clean, safe and comfortable heat, the absence of unsightly radiators makes furniture placement easier and creates a safer home environment with no exposed hot surfaces, ideal where there are children around. People all over Ireland are switching over to the benefits and cost savings that underfloor heating offers.
 
For new constructions the installation of underfloor heating is straight forward. For concrete floors, a heating pipe matrix is usually laid out on top of insulation before the screed covers the pipe matrix and finishes the construction of the floor. The system is controlled by a series of thermostats which signal the heat pump to distribute heat when required.
