Central Heating New Zealand offers the Variotherm floor heating system, which has a thin profile that can be laid over solid or timber floors and as such is an excellent choice for renovations and structures with a low weight requirement.
This water-based system is compatible with a variety of energy sources, so it is future-proof should you choose to change your energy source later on.
Like other forms of underfloor heating, Variotherm uses water-filled pipes to carry warmth throughout the home. The radiant heat emanating from these pipes is healthy and comfortable, providing the ideal heat distribution for the human body - warmest at feet, coolest near head. Unlike the traditional in-slab method of underfloor heating, Variotherm sits on top of the concrete slab and has additional insulation on the sides and bottom, which reduces heat loss and consequently raises efficiency.
