Underfloor heating is a great way to ensure that your home is comfortable throughout the year, and it’s also energy efficient, as it warms up your home from the ground up rather than from the ceiling down. But in order to get the most out of your underfloor heating system, you need to make sure that you have the right flow meters installed.
Flow meters are essential for monitoring water flow and ensuring that it’s running smoothly through your underfloor system. Without them, you won’t be able to get the most out of your underfloor heating system, and you could be wasting energy and money.
So what types of underfloor heating flow meters are available for Australian homes? Well, there are a few different types available depending on your needs. Here we’ll look at what types are available and how they can benefit your home.
The first type of flow meter is an electronic flow meter. This type of meter is designed to monitor the water flow in real-time and can be used with both hydronic and electric systems. It’s easy to install and can be programmed to turn off or on when necessary, helping you save energy by not having water flowing unnecessarily.
Another type of flow meter is a mechanical flow meter. This type uses a mechanical arm that measures the amount of water flowing through pipes in real-time and provides accurate readings. This type of meter is perfect for those who want precise readings with minimal effort as it requires no programming or maintenance.
Finally, there are also thermal actuator valves which are designed to measure temperature changes inside pipes and provide readings in real-time as well as adjusting the temperature accordingly if necessary. These valves can also help save energy by reducing heat loss when not in use and can be used with both hydronic and electric systems alike.
No matter which type of underfloor heating system you opt for – electric or hydronic – having one or more of these types of flow meters installed can save you money in the long run by making sure that your system runs efficiently at all times.
