The Role of Vertical Temperature Gradients in Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating is a great way to keep your home warm and cosy during the colder months of the year. It’s also an efficient and cost-effective way to heat a space, as it uses less energy than traditional radiators. One of the key factors that makes underfloor heating so effective is vertical temperature gradients – this refers to the way in which air flow within a room moves up and down the walls and floor.

The vertical temperature gradient in underfloor heating works by using convection currents – warm air rises, cold air sinks. As you may know, heat rises, so when you install underfloor heating, warm air from the floor rises up and circulates around the room, creating a comfortable ambient temperature. This means that you don’t need to have your radiators on full blast all day long in order to keep your home at a comfortable temperature – you can use much less energy than with traditional radiators.

This also means that you can reduce your energy bills significantly. Studies have shown that people who use underfloor heating instead of traditional radiators can save up to 25% on their energy bills each year – which is a huge saving! Additionally, as you are using less energy, you are also helping to reduce your carbon footprint – something we should all strive for!

But in order for vertical temperature gradients to be effective in underfloor heating systems, they must be installed correctly. This is why it’s important to use an experienced engineer or installer when setting up your system. Euroheat Australia has been designing and constructing hydronic heating & cooling systems with 30 years of experience, so they know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to installing underfloor heating systems correctly. With their expertise and knowledge, they will ensure that your system is installed correctly so that it works effectively and efficiently – giving you maximum efficiency gains and cost savings.
