    Doesn’t look as good as a Polyplumb system

    1 . 12/16 pex pipe laid at 300mm centers .
    2 . heated water at 50 to 60 Dec C .
    3 . max run for zone 110m MAX
    4. try for 60 to 80 w per M2 (or ft2 carnt remember)
    5 . If useing a Air source or Grouns source heat pump lay pipes 150mm to 200mm centers.

    I work in slabs with 40 to 60mm of insulation below the concrete . The tubes are laid with 30mm + cover.

    @MrSpongepimp hello. I am thinking of putting down underfloor heating my self soon.
    Can you please explain over kill to me .
    Do you mean he put him self to extra expence by buying all the extra pipe during construction etc
    Or do you mean that when he moves in to the house he will have to generate too much heat in his boiler system to heat all the extra pipe work ?

    goin to put something like this down in my house.. do you think wooden floors would effect the heat out.. by how much you think?

    -voltage: constant electric current — 12v, alternating current — 220v
    -the model is — multifunctional, needs minimal service costs, simple in operating
    -power consumption: alternating current — 0,05 — 0,35 kWt/hour, constant current -0,05 — 0,1 kWt/hour
    time of heating S =20 sq.m per 2 hour
    -high economic effects
    -maximum level of heating with minimum power consumption

    good underfloor heating go to bathroomelectrics(dot)com

    It’s gonna be toasty!!! looks like they’ve created a live in OVEN!

    Underfoor heating works best with well-insulated, energy-efficient homes that do not lose heat quickly and stay at a fairly stable temperature across the day. It is therefore most suited to constantly occupied homes

    yea, it does look a little hefty for a morter floor.

  10. MrSpongepimp says:

    this is fucked .. 2 kw per room ball park ! 300 centers for 1216 pipe . this looks like megga over kill.

    Pex spacing seems too close resulting in too many loops for a home this size. Steel anchorage for stairs should be installed to something solid prior to pour. Depth of screed seems too thin. Pex requires mechanical protection where it comes out of manifold. Pressure test manifolds during placing of screed and have repair fittings on hand case. Install expansion joint against walls and insulate perimeter with rigid 2 in EPS or higher.

    very good info…. u wont get a leak for underfloor heating as long as its pressure tested when the concrete goies in. then ur sorted as there are no connections underneath the floor

  14. gtearz says:

    where can i buy this stuff(radiant floor heating and cooling).

  15. migo53333 says:

    what happens if you get a leak????

  16. seonaidh19871987 says:

    is it hard to fit the under floor heating.

  17. CraicCocaine says:

    No wall insulation fitted :( 

  18. JABS991 says:

    wow. I’ve never seen pex spacings so tight. … Some like it hot.

    I used to lay miles and miles of UFH pipe for a living. what pipe was it you used? PEX-c? or an alu-pex? Was the build in Ireland? if so im guessing you use the alu-pex as its more popular over there!
