Hydronic slab heating is the standard installation method of hydronic in-floor heating.
It is where the pipes that carry the heated water are laid before the structural slab is poured. The pipes are laid 200mm apart in a snake-like pattern to and from the manifold in 100m lengths. Each circuit covers around 20 square metres of floor space.
Our multi-layered specialist pex-b and are tied directly to the reinforcement mesh (reo) and then the slab is poured directly over the top encompassing the pipe.
When in operation the floor heating thermostat will call for hot water from the boiler. A hydronic heating boiler will heat the water and pump it through the pipe at 50°C transferring its heat into the concrete slab, this heat then radiates through the home similar to how a brick wall radiates heat after the sun goes down on a summers day.
There is no air being pushed around which means that dust isn’t moving around your home, and gives allergy sufferers a huge relief.
