Does it promote a healthy environment?
Unlike radiators, the system minimises air circulation and reduces airborne dust. In fact, research shows underfloor heating produces around 80% less dust, providing welcome relief to 9 out of 10 asthma sufferers in the UK who say dust mites trigger their condition (Asthma UK, ‘House Dust Mites’, Nov 2015).
Is it sustainable?
Yes, our systems are designed to be future proof and engineered to be compatible with sustainable energy components, such as ground and air source heat pumps.
Do Polypipe Underfloor Heating systems come with a guarantee?
Yes, all our systems come with industry standard accreditation and approvals, backed by a 12-month warranty on the whole system and a 50-year guarantee on the pipes.
Do I need to install an additional layer of insulation below the underfloor heating system?
It is a requirement of Building Regulations (BS EN1264 1-4), that when constructing a new solid floor, it is necessary to provide a layer of insulation below the screed. This is required regardless of whether an underfloor heating system is present. This layer of insulation aids the efficiency of a ‘solid’ floor underfloor heating system (where the pipes are buried in screed) as it minimises any downward heat losses to less than 10W/m².
Can I maximise the space in every room?
Negating the need for radiators on the wall or storage heaters, Polypipe Underfloor Heating gives you the freedom to design the space you want without compromise.
Can the Underfloor Heating system be used to accelerate the drying out time of the screed?
No. Under no circumstances should this be done as it could lead to irreparable damage to the screed product.
