Central Heating New Zealand tailors all underfloor systems to ensure they are efficient and effective. We work with you or your project manager to ensure minimal disruption to timelines, physical property, and budget.
In a warm-water central heating system, pipework runs from the boiler to underfloor throughout the house. In a wood-framed home, pipes run through the framing timber like the electrical and plumbing services to the underfloor pipes. In a house constructed of concrete, pipes can be laid in the concrete slab.
To ensure even temperature is achieved throughout the home, the underfloor should ideally be in every room. In multi-storey homes, underfloor should also be placed in upstairs rooms and on landings. Based on the UK standard, allowance is made for 25% of heat rising to the next level in a well-insulated home. We, therefore, factor a reduced output requirement in our calculations for upper levels.
