The choice of which water system to use is governed by two main factors: The subfloor type and the finished flooring type.
Low-Profile Water Systems
Water systems are perfect for bringing energy-saving heat to new build-projects and we also offer a wide range of water systems for renovation projects that won’t impact floor heights. The VLo line of low-profile water floor heating systems are especially popular for home refurbishment projects where a low floor build-up is required. The line is comprised of three different solutions, with each system designed for a specific application; the VLo Ultra-12 Low Build System is for use with uninsulated floors, the VLo Nexxa-12 Castellated System for insulated floors and the VLo Econna-12 Joisted Floor System is designed for use with joisted floors. Each system offers rapid installation times and will provide an energy-efficient, low-carbon heating solution for your home with low long-term running costs.
Warmup ‘s innovative water UFH pipes are easy to install and ensure you have the optimum system for your home tailored to your specific project type, installation method, and budget. All water floor heating solutions come with a system-specific heating pipe, all of which feature market-leading warranties.
Water underfloor heating is usually installed within the subfloor construction of a building. Before starting the installation make sure to read the installation manual and follow it every step of the way. The area must be dry and the insulation must conform to building regulations or practice and again, laid as per manufacturer’s instructions.
Wet System Kit
If you are looking for an easy and quick installation of a wet system, Warmup also offers a water underfloor heating kit. The HydroPack System allows for a fast installation of a wet underfloor heating system containing everything you need to install the system in hours.
What Is the Cost of a Water System?
Water underfloor heating is a highly cost-efficient heating system to run as it uses much less energy than a central heating system. Wet underfloor heating emits enough energy to bring your room to your comfort temperature at flow temperatures of 30-40 degrees. This is significantly less than the temperatures required by conventional radiators to bring your room to comfort temperature (60-70 degrees). This is due to the fact that water underfloor heating systems spread the heat evenly across the floor surface and emit radiant heating through the objects of the room.
Water systems are particularly popular in energy efficient new build houses. You can calculate the running cost per m2 of your wet underfloor heating system here.
