Under Floor Heating

Under floor heating uses 70% radiant heat, and 30% convection. Instead of heating the air that surrounds objects in a building, the system heats the objects, including people, just as the sun heats objects on the earth’s surface.

Advantages of under floor heating

  • Eliminates uncomfortable hot or cold air flows around a room
  • The floor area, not the ceiling area, is the warmest part of the room
  • Extremely energy efficient. The even distribution of heat allows air temperature to be reduced by 1 – 2°C. This can yield energy savings of between 15% and 50%.
  • Clean and hygienic, this system is ideal for people with asthma or other breathing difficulties.
  • With no radiators or other wall mounted equipment required it leaves you free to design your room and utilise space unfettered.
  • Link up units can be added to existing systems to heat bathrooms, kitchens, garages, conservatories and house or office extensions. It is also popular for building renovations involving conversions of barns, stables, churches, schools, warehouses and offices for domestic use.
  • Healthy, environmentally friendly, vandal proof and carrying a 50 year guarantee, under floor heating has much to offer the designer and building occupant.

The system has been developed over a 30 year period in Holland and is widely adopted due to its economy and healthy features.

Invisible Heating Systems (IHS) manufacture the systems in Ullapool, Scotland. They will provide heat calculations, design and full CAD drawings for each project, tailored to meet the specific requirements of the client.

Under floor heating is ideal for most applications:

• Hospitals
• Schools
• Nursing homes
• Clinics

Cooling Systems

Just as warm water running through the floor provides radiant heat, cold water can provide radiant cooling. On a hot day, the system can be modified to use cold water from an appropriate source. The effect is that of walking into an old stone building and immediately feeling cool and comfortable.
