When setting up your underfloor heating, the pipe layout and design is one of the important things to consider. If you are inexperienced or hire an incompetent team, you could get it wrong and end up spending more than you should. For instance, depending on the design, the pipe layout specification is 200mm centres. There is also a required maximum output for heat based on the floor type. If these are not taken into consideration, the pipe layout will be insufficiently completed.

Based on the type of floor, every underfloor heating system has a maximum heat output. For concrete floors, it is 100W/m2 and 70W/m2 for timbre suspended floors. It is important that you underfloor heating pipes are laid according to the UK’s latest building regulations. No rooms must use more than the stipulated output. At Clifton Hill & Montpelier Underfloor Heating Sussex, our engineers follow industry best practices to ensure your system is installed in the right manner. Condensing boilers are often used for underfloor heating. However, it is advisable to consult with the manufacturer if the boiler can be connected to a secondary pump.
Clifton Hill & Montpelier Underfloor Heating Sussex engineers recommend at least 50mm of Polyurethane insulation for the underfloor heating. The insulation is extremely high and applicable to both timbre suspended floors and concrete constructions. All insulation settings must be in accordance with industry specified measurements. When you work with Clifton Hill & Montpelier Underfloor Heating Sussex, our experienced technicians work strictly along these rules.
If it is a new build property, the builder’s dealer can supply insulation such as Kingspan or Xtratherm. We often use a minimum creed quantity of 65mm over the insulation for concrete floors. Plastic sheets are never laid above the pipes.
Before you use the heating, allow the screed to dry for 4 to 6 weeks. Because you will be using it for the first time, set the mixing valve to a minimum to allow the moisture in the screed evaporate. Increase the temperature settings by 2⁰C every day until the mixing valve is set at 45⁰C. Our engineers are careful to protect the pipe work while installing the creed. When the lay out is complete, the next stage is the floor finish. Most underfloor heating systems are compatible with any type of floor finish, plastics, timbre floors, carpets (with resistance below 0.15 m2K/W). Our engineers often recommend carpets and underlays must have a thermal resistance of 2.5 Tog or below.
