Not at all! Wunda’s floor heating systems have been developed with the confident DIYer in mind, being able to lay the pipe and panels, leaving final commissioning to the professionals. If you’re extending or renovating, even simpler would be to make use of the builders already on-site and get them to install it for you.
Floor heating and radiators happily work in conjunction with one another, to achieve this you will need to ‘T’ off from your boiler primaries, so one set of flow and return will go towards your radiators and the other to your floor heating system. Any competent plumber can easily do this work for you.
Electric has much higher running costs in comparison to water based systems making it suitable for smaller areas such as en suites but not for larger living areas and whole homes. For open plan kitchen and family areas, water based systems are more economic costing up to 65% less to run than electric.
Most floor finishes can be used with floor heating, Wunda developed Wundatherm® Rapid Response, high density boards to support heavier floor finishes such as marble and stone tiles. These boards are independently approved by leading tile adhesive manufacturers to be laid directly on top without the need for an intermediary layer that other, less dense,
No, most users of floor heating install on the ground floor and combine the system with radiators upstairs – but you can install throughout the whole house if you wish.
We recommend having regular servicing to maintain an efficient system, when you have the boiler serviced for example to check inhibitor levels are still ok, no air locks in system causing poor performance. With regular preventative maintenance you will have no problems of breakdown
Absolutely, water based floor heating runs at lower temperatures, normally 35°C – 55°C, which is about half of what radiators run at. Water based floor heating is future proof and can be run from any heat source including heat pumps.
Warm water is pumped from the heat source to the manifold. If the floor heating requires warm water, the thermostatic valve will open allowing heated water into the manifold. From the manifold, heated water is pumped around the floor heating pipes, returning to the manifold and then either released back to the boiler/heat source via
