Underfloor Heating Installation in Naremburn, North Shore

What The Client Was After:

Our client wanted to have underfloor heating installed in their North Shore studio and they specifically wanted it to be controlled by a digital thermostat.

After hearing what they needed we sent two of AB Electrical’s skilled electricians to their property to come up with a game plan and get the installation started.

What Work Was Completed:

Underfloor heating is a great option for those that live in cold areas. You won’t have to deal with cold floors in the morning or at night and they offer better heat efficiency than most other heating systems.

However, it is important that underfloor heating is installed correctly that way it will continue to function properly for years to come.

To install the underfloor heating at our client’s property we took the following steps:

1. Installed Conduits for the Required Cable Protection

One of the benefits of underfloor heating is that it can last more than 20 years. However, for the system to last for its full lifetime, it must be installed correctly.

One of the most important aspects of this is properly setting up the conduits to protect the cables. This will ensure that the system lasts as long as possible so you can go many years without replacing it.

2. Installation of Underfloor Heating Mat

Once the conduits were put in place it was time to install the underfloor heating mat. This is the part of the system that is responsible for heating the floors.

3. Installation of Temperature Sensor

For this underfloor heating system to meet the needs of the client it was important that they could control it via a digital thermostat.

For this the digital thermostat to function we first needed to install a temperature sensor that would monitor the temperature of the underfloor heating mat.

4. Installation of Power Supply to Control Panel

Once the temperature sensor was in place it was time to install the power supply to the control panel. The control panel is the device that directly controls the heating mat which in turn controls the temperature of the home.

5. Install Tiling

After all of the previous steps were completed it was time to install the flooring. Once the flooring was installed we had to wait for an additional 7-10 days so that all the adhesives could dry and we could move on to the next step.

6. Installed Thermostat Touch Digital Display

After waiting 7-10 days for the flooring to set, it was time to install the last few components of this underfloor heating installation.

From the beginning, the client was clear that they wanted to control the whole system from a digital thermostat.

To make this happen we installed a thermostat with a touch digital display to make the temperature easy for the client to monitor and control.

7. Tested and Commissioned

Once the entire system was finished we tested it out to make sure that everything was functioning properly.

To do this we turned on the system and made sure that it was responsive to the thermostat and was heating up and cooling down to the correct temperatures.

Is Underfloor Heating Right for You?

Overall, underfloor heating is a great option for many homeowners and had many benefits including having lower costs over time and increasing the home’s value. However, there are also some disadvantages that should be considered.

The Benefits of Underfloor Heating:

  1. Energy Efficient
  2. Low Maintenance Costs
  3. Low Running Costs
  4. Controllable Temperature
  5. Better Space Design
  6. Increase the Homes Value

The Disadvantages of Underfloor Heating

Cost

The initial cost of installing underfloor heating can be higher than the cost of other heating systems. This is because in addition to paying for the actual heating system you have to pay for its installation which involves tearing up and replacing the floors.

Flooring Limitations

Unfortunately, underfloor heating systems are not compatible with all types of flooring.

One of these factors is whether or not your home has wooden floors. If your home is older and it has wooden floors that you’d like to preserve you may want to avoid underfloor heating.

Although the underfloor heating system does not get hot enough to burn the wood, over time changes in temperature can warp your hardwood floors. This doesn’t always happen, but if you want to maintain older floors you may be better off with a different heating system.
