The fact that natural gas has become more and more expensive has led to savings in heating and the transition to alternative heating systems rather than classical heating methods. After infrared heaters, floor heating systems have taken their place among the most preferred systems in many places, including residences.
Floor heating systems are systems that provide heating by means of pipes or cables placed under the floor on the floor. There are two main types as water and electric floor heating systems. Whichever of these two systems is chosen, it provides savings that can pay for itself when laid.
Today, the sector of floor heating systems is growing. So much so that the floor heating market has reached a size of more than 10 million Euros worldwide.
The fact that it is healthy and hygienic , minimizes dust and mite formation, provides efficient and comfortable heating, and saves up to 30 or even 50 percent in fuel explains why floor heating systems are so preferred.
Floor heating systems are also a form of warming suitable for the human body structure, namely anatomy, as it keeps the feet warm and the head cool. Floor heating systems can be easily applied in buildings under construction. It can also be applied in old houses. The construction of the system takes between 1 and 3 days on average.
Savings Between 30 – 50 Percent
Floor heating systems can save between 30 – 50 percent. It provides savings in energy consumption in the places where it is laid, due to the fact that the heat spreads from the bottom up, can heat at low temperatures and that the air is distributed homogeneously in the heated spaces. Today, where natural gas is increasingly expensive, saving on fuel costs is something everyone prefers.
With the help of thermostats in floor heating systems , the temperature in each room of the houses can be controlled. For example, less-used rooms are heated less, thus ensuring temperature control.
In radiator systems, the general boiler temperature should reach 70 to 90 degrees, but in floor heating systems, a maximum of 50 degrees is sufficient for the temperature. In classical heating systems, the temperature of the radiators is 55 – 60 degrees, while in floor heating systems it is 27 – 29 degrees.
