WARM WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING

We primarily install liquid or hydroponic underfloor heating systems, this passes heat into the room through radiant heating. These modernistic systems are connected to a normal boiler which operates at a lower temperature (35° to 45°) than conventional heating systems (typically radiators at 60° to 70°) or a heat pump can be used.

Warm Water Underfloor Heating in an existing home will save around 40% energy costs over a radiator system.

PROVIDING SPACE

A great choice for Domestic, Commercial or Industrial applications.

Warm water underfloor heating systems provide great space in a room, there is no place which is unusable due to a radiator and it’s safer for a family with young children. Underfloor systems provide far more consistent temperatures which are delivered directly to your feet; heating the room from the bottom up. Warm water underfloor heating can have various floor surfaces covering it: Screed, Stone, Terracotta and Ceramic tiles, Wood Flooring or Carpet.

ASSURED

We are accredited by both the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC) and Constructionline

UFH Pipe

We lay a complex pattern of PE-RT Piping in a layout which we design through CAD for optimal heat dispersion throughout the living or working space; providing in floor heating to your family or workforce. These pipes are filled with warm water which conducts to the surface above them, the pipes are laid upon insulation which ensures the vast majority of heat is delivered to the screed and in turn radiates to the air above.

Manifold

When installing a warm water underfloor heating system we connect the tubing to a single centralised manifold for smaller jobs or multiple manifolds to suit larger projects. Manifolds automatically release air from the system and are the element which connects to the boiler/s. The manifold controls the pressure supplied to the different areas of the house, this provides bespoke control to suit any layout. Through the manifold each area is adjusted and can be altered in the future to a particular customer’s needs.

TASC Floor Systems have completed a number of projects for us over the last few years. We are incredibly happy with all the works carried out by TASC, which are always to a very high standard.

As a company they continually provide us with excellent communication and quality services. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Worth Homes

TASC provided an excellent standard of work from day one to completion. Prompt arrival every day and finished to scheduled timescale. Installers very helpful and friendly and the work carried out was very professional. Would genuinely use them again.

Underfloor Heating is a modernistic way of heating your home and much more beneficial than traditional heating.

Underfloor Heating is a modernistic way of heating your home and much more beneficial than traditional heating mainly due to the fact that it is cheaper, studies have proved that it can prove to be around 40% cheaper than your standard central heating system.

Underfloor Heating also provides a method of heating known as radiant heating where the warm water pipes installed within the floor emit heat and the heat is absorbed within the chosen area, this offers the benefit of no cold spots as the heat is absorbed into every corner of the room. Along with this it offers the benefits of space saving and being ergonomically pleasing, leaving behind the need for chunky radiators and heaters.

Warm Water Underfloor Heating – Start to Finish

  • What is the area of the place you would like to heat?
  • What will the individual area’s be used for (Lounge, Kitchen, Office)
  • What is the fabric of the building (type of glazing, construction etc. of the individual area’s) to assess the pipe spacing
  • Can you supply set drawings

If you proceed we produce CAD drawing’s of the property which includes pipe layout and Manifold locations. Depending on the site/job requirement visit may be necessary to accurately assess the area to be heated.

If the client wishes we will provide insulation to the site.

The plastic membrane is used to separate the foil board from the screed to prevent any screed seeping into the insulation boards. The clip rails have set sized spaces which are used which allow us to mimic the CAD drawing produced as closely as possible.

Manifold comes to site pre-assembled to our specification. We add the mixing valve and pump and attach the PE-X Piping to Manifold.

In most scenarios we use a CAD design to produce a neat and well laid out system. The design can be altered at this stage for any unforeseen design elements or changes to original plan

We test the systems flow by filling the individual circuits and filling the Manifold. We then check the project is ready to accept screed layer.

The Screed Layer is applied to a pre-defined thickness which refers to the datum point (DPC (Damp Proof Course level)). The minimum thickness of Screed is 45 mm and the maximum is 75 mm this depends upon the particular project specifications.

When the screed has set, our heating engineer connects the manifold to the boiler and connects the thermostat/s.

Once the customer has moved in and the furniture has been unpacked and floor coverings are in place, we revisit the site to tune the manifold pressure and balance the system to suit individual room specifications and customer requirements.
