Underfloor heating - how it works
Underfloor heating works by pumping a controlled flow of warm water from any heat source through plastic tubing embedded in the floor. Because the emitting area is large, sufficient warmth is provided even on a cold winter day with no need for supplementary heating.
Nu-Heat supplies a complete package of high quality components including award-winning installation manuals and a full system design with bespoke CAD drawings showing all mechanical pipework and valves as well as electrical connections. Tailored manuals are provided to suit the heat source whether conventional boiler or heat pump.
The company has built up a huge fund of experience over the years, much of which is embodied in its Optimiser™ computer software. This is a sophisticated calculation tool used by the company's designers to ensure that all new systems will fulfil the potential of underﬂoor heating and match customers' expectations.
Nu-Heat currently has over 60 different floor constructions, from solid beam and block to specific acoustic variations and timber-joisted floors. Whatever the project, we have a floor construction that will fit perfectly, and if we don’t then we’ll develop one.
