Underfloor heating provides the most comfortable even warmth of any heating system. It is economical to run and virtually maintenance free.
The speedfit system has water being pumped from a boiler to a pump pack, where it is mixed to approximately 50 degrees then distributed via a manifold to heating circuits made using Speedfit Barrier Pipe. The pipe is laid in concrete or suspended just below the surface of the floor.
In concrete floors, the pipe is laid on insulation and then covered with a screed on which can be laid almost any type of floor covering.
For timber floors, spreader plates are laid between the joists and the floor decking or on the underside of the floor Speedfit Pipe is pushed into the grooves on the plates.
The floor area is typically warmed to between 25 and 28 degrees, providing an even distribution of heat at only slightly higher than room temperature. The system is controlled by one or more thermostats which signal the Pump Pack when heat is required.
