Underfloor heating is an excellent way to heat your home while reducing energy costs. In general, the installation of an underfloor heating system involves the installation of a boiler and piping to circulate the hot water through the underfloor pipes. The expansion tank is an important component of the system, as it stores and releases water when pressure in the system is too low or too high.
When considering underfloor heating in Australia, it’s important to understand the different types of expansion tanks available. There are two main types: standard expansion tanks and pressurized expansion tanks.
Standard Expansion Tanks
Standard expansion tanks are typically used for residential applications and are designed to be installed alongside a boiler or water heater in order to help regulate water pressure in the system. The tank has an air chamber that absorbs excess water when pressure builds up and releases it when needed. These tanks come in various sizes, depending on your needs, and can be easily installed by most plumbing professionals. One of their main benefits is that they can help prevent damage caused by excessive pressure on pipes and fittings.
Pressurized Expansion Tanks
Pressurized expansion tanks are designed for commercial applications where there is a need for higher water pressure than what can be provided by a standard tank. These tanks have an air chamber that uses air compression technology to maintain a certain level of pressure within the system, regardless of fluctuations in temperature or other external factors. The benefit of this type of tank is that it helps maintain consistent water flow throughout your system, allowing you to maximize efficiency without fear of damage caused by high pressures.
