When it comes to warming a large area room, underfloor heating can often be the best solution to provide even, comfortable heat supplied by low water temperatures. To make the point, Grant UK offers up this step by step example, highlighting the key procedures in installing its Uflex underfloor heating system.
This Grant Uflex underfloor heating system was recently installed in a five bedroom detached home, originally built in 2016.
The new extension, incorporating a gymnasium and downstairs bathroom of around 42m2, was a perfect candidate for the comfort of underfloor heating. The Uflex system has been integrated into the existing heating system (currently natural gas). The house already has underfloor throughout the downstairs and Grant Afinia Aluminium radiators upstairs. It also has a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system and smart multi-zone heating controls.
The installer, Howard Croker & Sons, based in Corsham, Wiltshire, is a member of the Grant G1 Scheme. Through the G1 scheme, installers are provided with the tools they need to fit and endorse Grant UK products, from training through to marketing support. Grant UK also has a dedicated department who are on hand to provide product and design assistance.
Specifying the required parts to complete an underfloor heating installation can be time-consuming so Grant UK is able to provide comprehensive quotations, quickly and efficiently. Each quotation will detail the components required to complete the specific job being quoted for. These components can then be supplied as a pack once the order is finalised, making life easier for installers and their merchants.
G1 installers can also turn to Grant UK for system design support as well. An outline system design can be supplied at the quotation stage. Once there is an order confirmation, Grant’s Design and Specification Team will be able to supply full designs (to include the zone layouts), delivering a quick service for engineers and their customers.
