The concept of underfloor heating was developed 2,000 years ago when the early Romans used furnaces in cellars and other open spaces underneath floors to warm their ground floors. This ancient home heating technique has evolved into the water- and electricity-based underfloor heating that so many homeowners are using and enjoying today. Underfloor heating works with a combination of radiant and convection heat. Electric heating cables or water pipes carrying warm water from a boiler system are buried in the floors structure. The radiant heat from the cables or pipes travels in rays until it encounters the floor, and the floor then becomes warm. The heat from the floor converts into convection heat as it travels into the air, expands, and rises. This convection heat warms the air as it proceeds up to the ceiling. With underfloor heating, the warmest air is in the lower part of the room because the heat moves from the floor to the ceiling. Heating from a radiator works only by...
In 2005 the Building Regulations introduced the new Part L demanding all new boilers installed to be categorized as high efficiency systems. This includes condensing boilers and combination (also known as combi) boilers which use a secondary heat exchanger (or an extra large single heat exchanger) to recoup the heat that would otherwise be expelled into the atmosphere via the boiler flue. The new Building Regulations Part L also called for heating controls, system insulation and hot water cylinders among other components to improve their respective energy efficiency levels. The new requirements are much more demanding than previously in terms of the professional level of the system designer, the installer and the service engineer. The new systems are more integrated than old systems as all components are specifically designed to provide the right output (in terms of power) or demand the right input (such as in the case of heating controls). The engineer has to have good understandin...
