SO YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT UNDER FLOOR HEATING?
Under floor heating is extreme comfort. It's efficient, silent and stylish. And it's fast becoming the popular way to heat Australian homes.
Radiant energy emitted by the floor is absorbed by other surfaces. Those surfaces then become secondary heat emitters. After a while, all surfaces become heated and uniformly warmed. The energy and heat reaches into every corner of the room – no cold spots, no hot ceilings and especially no cold feet.
TYPES OF UNDER FLOOR HEATING
In slab floor heating is the standard method for hydronic underfloor heating.
Pipes are secured to slab steel reinforcment
200mm apart, in either a spiral or serpentine
layout at lengths no more than 100m. Concrete is then poured encasing the underfloor pipe whilst creating a structural slab to build on. Once connected to the boiler hot water flows through the underfloor pipework, transferring heat into the concrete slab.
In screed floor hydronic heating is the most
efficient and responsive method of under
floor hydronic heating. It can be installed in
both new and existing homes. Like structural
floor heating, in screed heating turns your
whole floor into a radiant heater.
In screed is a far more responsive and efficient way of using this system.
Underfloor heating pipe is located and secured into Pipe Positioning Board, at a distance of 200mm apart, which is laid directly on top of a pre poured structural slab. The underfloor heating pipe and Pipe Positioning Board are then screeded over with a minimum of 50mm thick concrete screed.
This method of underfloor heating is done
by installing a long, thin aluminium sheet called Heat Emission Plat between the floor joists. Flooring is then laid directly on top. The Heat Emission Plate has a groove running along its center line designed to locate the pipe work.
The pipe is sandwiched between the Heat Emission Plate and the floor.
The design allows heat energy from the underfloor heating pipe to transfer through the alumimium sheet and though the floor.
The Minitec System is designed for renovations or retrofitting of underfloor heating. A thin, rigid plastic sheet is placed on top of existing flooring and the pipework is then laid within. After pipework is laid, a self levelling compound is poured on top.
Due to the minimal height of the panel, the
shallow depth method means the floor level is only raised around 15mm (plus flooring).
ADDITIONS TO YOUR SYSTEM
Partage boxes allow you to zone areas of the house and separately control them.
Eg. (Right side and left side)
Partage boxes can also be used to have a combination underfloor heating and panel heating system using the same boiler with separate controls.
This control system allows you to control individual rooms. Each room can be fitted with a controller for the user to set their our auto times and temperatures.
Eg. (Bed1, Bed2, Bed3, Living& Kitchen)
See are range of system controllers.
