At Hero Renewables, we have years of experience in designing and installing wet underfloor heating to work in conjunction with renewable heating systems.
Our team of in-home designers will provide you with bespoke drawings to fit your personal needs required, no matter what the project design. To give you that extra peace of mind, we don’t sub-contract any of our work, allowing us to uphold the highest quality installations our clients expect.
What Is Underfloor Heating?
Underfloor heating is an efficient and effective way of transferring heat energy and is also compatible with a variety of central heating systems. An Underfloor heating system is ideal for new builds, renovations and redesigns, as this system is a better way to transfer heat energy around your home or commercial premises than traditional methods.
This is because underfloor heating provides radiant heat as it heats objects directly, radiators on the other hand, heats using convection which is inefficient as heat is lost more easily through the windows and walls of the property.
How Does Underfloor Heating Work?
Underfloor heating comes in all different shapes and sizes, so it can be difficult when choosing the right system for your project. It’s for this reason that we only ever recommend installing wet underfloor heating as electric underfloor is costly, inefficient and not environmentally friendly.
Underfloor heating works similarly to your conventional radiators, but instead of distributing high temperature water through a small surface area in your radiator, it uses heat transfer fluid at lower temperatures over a larger surface area.
As a result of the lower flow temperatures, typically around 35°C – 45°C, they work perfectly with heat pumps, providing you with the ultimate low cost, high efficiency system.
Wet Underfloor Heating is the most cost-effective and comfortable way of heating your home. An UFH system consists of the pipework, manifold, fixing materials, insulation and the controls. Pipes laid beneath the flooring (as the name suggests) are used to heat the room. The manifold regulates the flow of the system and most systems are pressurised,…
I can highly recommend Hero Renewables. — Mr Grayson | Lincolnshire ( Google Review )Having undergone a major extension and refurbishment at my property, that included installation of Ground Source Heat Pumps and Underfloor Heating, I can highly recommend Hero Renewables. From the first call through to the final installation, they have been extremely professional in their approach and every team member who has worked on our site has been excellent through out the process. The project management team kept us updated at regular intervals and easily accommodated change of plans and dates without any fuss. The onsite teams made the installation process easy, left the site neat and tidy, kept us informed of progress and discussed requirements with us at all stages to ensure that the system was installed correctly and that we had a say in the positioning of certain components to ensure this kept in line with our plans for each room. Hero Renewables cover a range of Green Energy solutions and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for advice and installation on what best suits their property requirements.
We like this company and will use them again. — Mr Roberts | Kent ( Google Review )We used Hero for both our underfloor and air source heating on a new house build - we found their communications to be generally prompt and responsive - they turned up on site when they were scheduled to and the work, apart from one slight hitch (which they corrected without delay) was all completed on time and in particular the AS plumbing & electrical works which were undertaken within a very confined space were excellent. We like this company and will use them again.
Underfloor Heating Benefits
Lower Running Costs
Underfloor heating uses lower hot water temperatures than both radiators and skirting heating systems making the system far more energy efficient.
Minimal Environmental Impact
As Underfloor Heating demands less energy to maintain your homes temperature, not only are you making savings on your utility bill, you’ll be cutting your carbon emissions drastically, as you can remotely monitor your renewable heating system.
The piping required is predominantly made up of 16mm plastic piping which is connected up to a manifold. Because of these basic components there is very little go wrong in an Underfloor System, the warranty for our Underfloor Heating pipes are 50 years, every other component in the system is guaranteed for 10 years.
Unlike radiators, underfloor heating is invisible and also does not take up any additional space or compromise the interior design options within the room.
At Hero we are able to install an underfloor heating system in any room of the domestic home or business building, including 1st and 2nd floors, offices and conservatories with the retrofit system able to be installed over any existing concrete or wooden floor.
