Similar to the electronic under-floor heating systems, the wet systems are also installed under carpeted, wooden, tile or stone floors. This system is often used as a replacement to a central-heating system in kitchens, bathrooms or an entire house. However, the wet heating systems are more suitable for the new buildings, due to the space needed to fit this piping, which means the floors may need elevation.
The wet underfloor heating works by using a sequence of pipes which connect to a boiler, that circulates the warmed water through the floors which in turn heats up the room. These pipes can also be connected to solar-heating systems, which can work out into an efficient and environmentally way in which to heat the home.
When choosing this type of system, it is always advisable to have the underfloor heating installed by a professional, as the work is complex when it comes to installing the necessary pipes along with the correct insulation.
It is essential that the floor is adequately insulated to achieve the very best results as well as to stop the heat from escaping downwards. The heating type required will be dependent on the shape and size of a room, while an engineer will be required to test your boiler in order to ensure it is capable of supporting the system once installed.
Wet underfloor heating has the ability to offer comfort and warmth to homes which is often regarded as superior in comparison to many other types of heating methods available. In most cases you will experience heat which distributes more evenly throughout your rooms. The system works on gently warming the air just above the floor and it will also rise evenly, which means the air will be warm that surrounds you even when your ceilings are high.
