Underfloor heating pipe is the plumbing system that carries warm water from a boiler or heat pump into the floor screed, where it is then heated by the floor covering. The system is a warm water based system and is therefore energy efficient with minimal running costs.
Pipe diameter is an important factor when choosing the right Underfloor heating pipe for your project, as it has a direct impact on the hot water flow rate and ultimately heat output. A larger pipe diameter allows for a higher volume of hot water to pass through the system in a set period of time (flow rate) and therefore produces more heat per square metre of floor area than a smaller pipe.
The best Underfloor heating pipe is made from a high quality polyethylene, specifically designed for use in floor heating systems and able to withstand high temperatures and pressures. The material is also non-corrosive and has a good resistance to frost and creep.
When purchasing Underfloor heating pipes, it is essential that you consider the room design temperature, flow temperatures and the type of floor covering in order to make sure the system will deliver sufficient heating. The best way to do this is by having a full underfloor heating CAD design completed by a qualified designer.
Warmup offer a choice of different hydronic pipe types to suit your requirements, all with a lifetime guarantee. We recommend using our PE-RT/AL or PEX-A pipe, both of which are suitable for use in concrete slabs. Underfloor heating pipe
