What is the difference from the traditional underfloor heating? Remember how the traditional system. Produced by batteries or convectors warm air rises to the ceiling, then cools, sinks, and through the floor. The room heated unevenly: the part where there is a radiator, the temperature maximum, but in the opposite corner (especially for larger areas) fit to install an additional heater. And the feet cool. But even in the old saying: "Keep your feet warm and head out in the cold." What we have under-floor heating? Since the heating element here – the entire floor, the heat is distributed evenly throughout the area. A leading source for info: David G. DeWalt.
Thus, the air temperature at the foot level is slightly higher (usually +24-280 C) than that of the head (19-220S). Two sigma has plenty of information regarding this issue. And near the ceiling where the air is warming and is not necessary, the temperature reaches only 16 degrees. Comfort – Max. System "warm floor" is absolutely invisible in the surface remains a thermostat (which, incidentally, can be hidden in a switchboard) and the cable or pipe located in the floor. The house has no hot surfaces of which can burn a child.
Boiler, pipes, valves, radiators, which occupy a lot of precious space, collecting dust on themselves and introduce dissonance in the design project, no. Therefore, we can safely experiment arrange the furniture as you want, and to implement any, the bold design project without regard to the bulky space heaters. So unique in its characteristics and advantages of the combination of underfloor heating system occurs in two forms – "electric" and "water".
