The Impact of Fluid Temperature on the Performance of Underfloor Systems

When it comes to heating and cooling your home, underfloor systems are becoming increasingly popular in Australia. They offer a range of benefits, from energy efficiency to cost savings. But one of the most important factors in ensuring your system runs optimally is temperature control.

The temperature of the fluid that circulates through your underfloor heating or cooling system can have a big impact on its performance. Too hot or too cold and you won’t get the most out of your system. So, how do you ensure optimal temperature control?

It’s important to choose the right type of fluid for your underfloor system. A good quality glycol-based antifreeze is essential, as it has the ability to absorb heat and keep the fluid circulating at an even temperature. The right fluid will also help prevent corrosion and scale build-up, further maintaining its efficiency over time.

Once you’ve chosen the right type of fluid for your system, it’s vital that it’s kept at an optimal temperature. The ideal temperature range for systems using glycol-based antifreeze is between 40°C and 55°C. This will ensure maximum efficiency from both heating and cooling systems by providing quick heat up times and low running costs.

But why is this so important? Well, for starters it has a direct impact on energy consumption and therefore cost savings for homeowners – something we could all use more of! For example, if you heat up the water in your system to 60°C rather than 45°C you could be looking at around 30% more energy usage which equates to around an extra $500 dollars per year on average (depending on usage). On top of this higher temperatures can lead to increased wear and tear on boilers, pumps and other components leading to higher maintenance costs further down the line – not great!

So when installing an underfloor system, it pays to get it done properly with a quality product that’s designed for optimum performance.
