The Importance of Moisture Control in Underfloor Heating Systems

Underfloor heating systems have become increasingly popular amongst Australian homeowners as an efficient and cost-effective way to heat their homes. But for these systems to be effective, moisture control is essential.

Moisture can be especially damaging to underfloor heating systems because the components of the system are located beneath the floor surface, which limits ventilation. This means that any moisture present in the air is unable to evaporate and can gather in the system, leading to corrosion and damage.

Therefore, it’s important for homeowners to ensure their underfloor heating systems are properly designed and installed with adequate moisture control measures. Fortunately, this isn’t too difficult with the help of a qualified engineer such as those at Euroheat Australia. With 30 years of experience in designing and constructing hydronic heating & cooling systems, Euroheat can provide you with expert advice on how to approach moisture control for your system.

In addition to protecting your system from damage caused by moisture, installing an underfloor heating system also offers a number of other benefits. For starters, it helps reduce energy consumption by up to 20%, as the heat generated from underfloor heating is more evenly distributed throughout your home than traditional radiators or convection heaters. This means you’re able to keep your home at a comfortable temperature without having to rely on costly energy sources such as gas or electricity.

Another advantage of underfloor heating is that it’s much quieter than other forms of heating; you won’t hear any loud clanking or clunking noises emanating from your floor as you would with convection heaters or radiators! This makes it ideal for those who prefer a peaceful home environment without any intrusive noises.

Finally, underfloor heating also offers improved air quality compared to other forms of heating; since less dust is circulated through the air with this type of system, it creates a healthier living environment for those with allergies or respiratory issues such as asthma.

So if you’re looking for an efficient and cost-effective way to heat your home while also improving its air quality, installing an underfloor heating system with proper moisture control measures may be just what you need – and Euroheat Australia’s experienced engineers can help make sure everything is installed correctly so you get maximum benefit from your new system!
