What is joisted underfloor heating?
Joisted underfloor heating consists of lifting your floor boards, notching the joists beneath them, and running warm water pipe through either Aluminium Spreader Plates or aluminium coated EPS panels that sit between your joists and relaying your floor boards. You can then run the floor heating at temperatures of 50 – 55°C and enjoy the unparalleled comfort with out needing to add any build up height to your project.
Joist Underfloor Heating Considerations
There are some things you might consider before committing to a joisted underfloor heating system.
Installation. If your project is a retrofit or a new build, you may have issues with accessibility between the joists.
Heat Up Time & Efficiency. The efficiency of your system will depend on the insulative resistance of the material covering your joists (chipboard, floorboards) and floor finish (carpet, wood, etc).
For easy access and maximum efficiency, it may be preferable to use our:
Leak proof pipes
No joins under the floor and 100% leak proof pipe.
Very low maintenance and reliably consistent, it just works!
Compatible with all boilers
Compatible with any heat source, including future heat pumps.
Underfloor Heating efficiency and Heat Sources
Water Underfloor heating systems will give the most efficient results from any heat source. Due to less energy being used to produce low water temperatures 35-45°C. Perfect for any boiler or Ground Source or Air Source Heat Pump.
Wunda joisted floor systems use close pipe centres, thick aluminium. Maintaining input temperatures that make floor heating environmentally friendly and efficient. Suitable for both old and new properties.
