Electric underfloor heating works by heating a room with a system of electric cables put beneath the floor. Below the floor level, a matrix of electric wires is constructed and insulated against heat loss. The cords are plugged into a normal power outlet. A programable room thermostat can be used to manage each room or “zone” independently. Electric underfloor heating is typically utilized in specific rooms, such as bathrooms or kitchens, or as an addition to a home. They’re a lot faster and easier to put together than wet systems. However, the amount of heat produced is lesser, and the operating costs are often higher. The remainder is taken care of by Ultimate Driveway.
Is it Necessary to Have Your Underfloor Heating Service?
Although underfloor heating is mostly maintenance-free, we recommend getting it regularly serviced to keep it running well. Regular maintenance of the UFH is also the most effective strategy to avoid future technical concerns. Underfloor heating systems should be serviced once a year to ensure maximum efficiency.
Ultimate Driveway‘s regular maintenance of UFH systems will increase the system’s efficiency and lessen the risks of it breaking down. If underfloor heating is not maintained or serviced for a long period, debris can accumulate. This can cause performance issues with moving parts, including valves, pumps, and flow meters.
Underfloor heating manifolds and controls are repaired and serviced by Ultimate Driveway. Our commercial and residential underfloor heating experts are certified to service all brands and types of underfloor heating equipment.
