Elgin Road, Poole, United Kingdom
Underfloor Heating has without question experienced
a surge in popularity in recent times, due to the education and exposure the
pipe manufacturers have dedicated to this sector. Due to the flexibility of not
needing to be regulated; self builders are quickly discovering that it is
possible to install underfloor heating system with relative ease. One such
project was specified and installed by Ian Stewart, who also made the use of
weather compensation to ensure his home was perfectly controlled throughout the
indifferent winter months.
Ian had no previous experience in installing
underfloor heating; and the idea that the Elgin Road complex should offer
'spacious, discreetly heated rooms where the clients are as comfortable as
possible' lead to the natural choice of underfloor heating. Underfloor Heating
Now supplied the project with all the necessary Uponor pipe, manifold and
controls, together with all of the technical experience necessary to complete
the project to an extremely high standard. For self installers who have not
installed underfloor heating system before, it is of utmost importance to have
some aspect of technical referencing to ensure the project runs smoothly.
Underfloor Heating Now with their experience of the Uponor range could offer
this advice; advice on techniques, tips and one-on-one advice to make the
project run smoothly.
The weather compensation simply automatically
adjusts the setting of the underfloor heating system based on the outside
temperature. The unit uses a pipe sensor and an outside temperature system to
adjust the water within the system via a multi-way valve. The system naturally
contains unoccupied (night) set back to reduce the output of the system at
times of vacancy or during night time hours. Setback reduces the reaction time
on the floor, as the temperature does not fall below a certain point. This in
turn reduces the energy needed to return the floor back to operation
At the housing fairs of Kouvola, in summer 2019, was presented House Beauty which has the modern control system Uponor Smatrix Pulse for radiant underfloor heating and cooling system.
Uponor's radiant underfloor heating and cooling system was installed in a new single family house. During the record high heat wave, the system was in real action.
The 30 years old copper plumbing of the house were replaced with a Uponor composite system. The renovation was over in one day. The contractor for the job was LVI-Dalton Ltd from Klaukkala, Finland.
At the end of autumn 2013, Uponor's new product, Uponor Gray Water Filter Home, was installed in Ruuhijärvi, Nastola.
