Underfloor heating is fast becoming a popular choice for many homeowners in Australia. Not only does it provide a comfortable, warm atmosphere in your home, but it can also help reduce your energy costs and workload. But with so many different types of underfloor heating pressure relief valves available on the market, it can be hard to know which one is right for you and your home.

Let’s start by looking at the different types of pressure relief valves available for Australian homes. The most common type is the atmospheric relief valve, which is used to release excess pressure from the system. This type of valve has a preset pressure rating and will open if that pressure is exceeded. It’s important to note that these valves should be installed by a qualified professional as they are highly sensitive and need to be calibrated correctly.

The next type of pressure relief valve is the automatic resetting relief valve, also known as an ARV. This type of valve works by automatically resetting itself after releasing excess pressure from the system. This type of valve is often used in commercial applications as it can handle large amounts of water flow and has a much higher degree of accuracy than other types of valves.

Another type of valve that can be used in Australian homes is the constant-pressure relief valve, also known as a CPRV. These valves are designed to maintain constant pressure within the system regardless of flow rate. This makes them ideal for larger systems where there may be a wide range of flow rates required for different areas or activities within the home such as showers or baths. They are also very accurate and reliable when installed correctly.

Finally, there’s the anti-scalding relief valve, which prevents scalding water temperatures from reaching dangerous levels when underfloor heating systems are running at peak efficiency. This type of valve works by automatically reducing water temperature when it reaches certain levels and will then increase again once those levels have been reached again. The anti-scalding relief valve should always be installed by a qualified professional as its accuracy needs to be calibrated correctly in order to work properly and safely.

When it comes to installing any type of underfloor heating system, it’s essential to use the services of an experienced engineer or installer who understands how these systems work and how best to install them for maximum efficiency and safety.
