Underfloor heating systems are popular in mainland Europe and are lately increasing their popularity in the UK and the US. Underfloor heating is easy to install and offers even distribution of heat in rooms (or house).Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to warm the interiors of a house. These heating devices have become very popular because of their effectiveness in heating up floors. What's more, they are cost-effective and help save on energy bills.Here, we’ll be discussing types of underfloor heating pipes and their advantages:
What is Underfloor Heating and How Does it Work?
The idea behind underfloor heating is quite simple. It's all about warm water running through a series of pipes installed underneath any type of flooring. The water retains its warmth with the help of a boiler.The system is especially popular with homeowners who have tiled kitchens and bathrooms, as tiles can be cold to walk on. A good underfloor heating system can warm an entire room (or house) evenly starting from the ground up.
Underfloor Heating Pipe Choice
At the heart of all underfloor heating systems are the pipes. They are identical to human arteries; without them, the system would stop working.Sadly, we do not have the option to decide the quality of our arteries, but here at EasyMerchant Limited, we provide you with a choice of pipe that best suit the underfloor system you are installing.EasyMerchant Limited systems come with a selection of three pipe types; PE-RT/AL/PE-RT, PE-RT, and PEX. This choice ensures that you've the best possible system, tailored to your specific installation and budget:
PEX is an abbreviation for cross linked polyethylene. It’s a proven, hard-wearing and flexible piping product that has been used in underfloor heating systems for over a decade. PEX tubing won’t corrode, scale or pit and, due to its flexibility, it also offers potential freeze-damage protection.EasyMerchant Limited underfloor heating systems feature PEX-A tubing, the best pipe manufacturing technique in the industry. And owing to its thermal memory, flexibility, and shape, it is ideal for underfloor heating.
Benefits of PEX Tubing
Connections don’t call for the use of solvents or chemicals
Resists condensation on cold-water lines
Resists scaling, pitting and corrosion
Preserves more heat in hot-water lines
PE-RT is a flexible, high-temperature plastic pressure pipe with a thirty-five years history of successful use with extensive testing for material performance and durability.Applications include ground source geothermal piping systems, ice and snow melting, hydronic heating and cooling, water service, and plumbing.
Benefits of PE-RT Tubing
Toughness and durability to survive job site installations
Recyclable, eco-friendly material
Low scrap value, preventing job site theft
Resistance to deposits, tuberculation, and corrosion
Lightweight, easy to transport
Chloramine and Chlorine resistance
Flexibility to speed installations
The PE-RT-AL-PE-RT underfloor heating pipe is a robust PE-RT pipe with a thin aluminium layer in between. The aluminium layer functions as an oxygen barrier. This stops the diffusion of oxygen through the polymer matrix to prevent corrosion of metallic components. PE-RT-AL-PE-RT pipes combine the merits of plastic and copper but have none of their demerits.
Benefits of PE-RT/AL/PE-RT Tubing
100% diffusion barrier
High heat and strength capacity
Absolutely diffusion tight
Optimally stabilised against ageing
No memory bend
