Hydronic Underfloor Heating System Market: Overview
The term ‘underfloor heating’ implies a type of central heating that helps in gaining thermal comfort by using convection, conduction, and radiation by controlling indoor climate. In underfloor heating, the radiant heating technology is used. In radiant heating, thermal energy is released from a warm element such as wall, floor, or ceiling. Heat is transferred to people and other objects in the room, instead of directly heating the air. Hydronic underfloor heating is a type of underfloor heating system that uses water or mixture of water and anti-freeze as a heat transfer fluid that is circulated between the floors. Key components of a hydronic underfloor heating system are a manifold, pipes, and an energy source.
Hydronic underfloor heating is an efficient and feasible solution for heating homes or offices. It can be applied under floor surfaces made of timber, marble, stone, slate, or varieties of tiles. Heating is carried out centrally. Hydronic underfloor heating systems are designed to operate continuously during winters. However, these systems should not be used for irregular heating requirements. In hydronic floor heating, water is heated to up to 50°C and circulated at a low pressure through a grid of pipes, manifolds, valves, and switches, which operated simultaneously to heat the desired zone. Hydronic floor heating is a closed system, as water is circulated between the floor and the energy source.
Hydronic Underfloor Heating System Market: Drivers & Restraints
Pipes used to carry the fluid are generally made from polyethylene such as PEX, PEX-AI-PEX, or PERT. In some of the applications, copper and steel pipes are also employed. The heat source for heating water can be gas (natural gas or LPG) boilers, electric heat pumps, solar collectors, or geothermal heat pumps. The most preferred source of energy is natural gas, as the upfront cost of gas boilers is less than that of heat pumps and gas boilers more reliable than solar collectors.
A manifold is one of the essential parts of the overall circuit. It controls the overall functioning of the system. The manifold manages the water flow to every circuit and regulates heat with the help of an actuator, which starts and stops the flow within the circuit. Actuators are operated with the help of thermostats. Manifolds are placed with a mixing shunt, which can be used to mix the return cold water with the supply water so as to reduce temperature of the supply water. This can be used for the hybrid system. The manifold should be located centrally and in an accessible location such as garage, cupboard, or laundry cupboard.
