Underfloor heating, or in-floor heating as it’s sometimes known, is becoming increasingly popular in Australia. It is an efficient and cost-effective way to heat your home or commercial space. With so many different types of underfloor heating zoning available, you may be wondering which one is best suited to your home or business.
Underfloor heating works by using a series of pipes laid beneath the floor to circulate warm water (or electric cables) heated by a boiler, heat pump or solar panel. The heat radiates upwards through the floor, warming the room and creating an even temperature throughout. This type of zoning system allows you to control the temperature of individual rooms or sections of rooms independently for maximum comfort and efficiency.
The most common type of underfloor heating zoning system used in Australia is hydronic heating. This involves installing a series of pipes connected to a central boiler that supplies hot water to each zone in your home or business. The system can easily be controlled with a smart thermostat for maximum convenience and efficiency. Hydronic systems are particularly well suited to large homes and commercial spaces as they can easily be designed to provide individual zones with precise temperature control.
If you’re looking for an energy-efficient option then electric underfloor heating could be the right choice for you. Electric cables are laid one meter apart beneath the floor and connected to a power source such as mains electricity. This type of system provides efficient warmth without the need for a boiler or other external energy source, so it’s ideal if you don’t have access to natural gas or other fuel sources. However, it is important to note that electric systems require more maintenance than hydronic systems due to the cables being laid directly on the flooring surface which can cause wear over time if not looked after properly.
Whatever type of zoning system you choose for your home or business, it’s important to ensure it is designed and installed correctly by experienced professionals in order to get the most out of your investment and avoid costly problems down the line.
