Hydronic Underfloor Heating Industry Background

These systems use warm water for heating purpose and occupies less space as it is installed beneath the floor. Heat pumps and boilers are usually employed to provide warm water. The low flow temperature of water makes its installation feasible over electric UFH. The system comprises of heat pumps or boilers, primary pipe network, manifolds, pipe loops and controller switches. Wet UFH acts as an invisible source of heat subject to the installation beneath the floor surface.
