Warm water floors
With the onset of winter, everyone thinks about how to keep the heat in the house, because the help of central heating, in severe frosts, can not be expected. A good option for heating is called the “warm floor” system, which allows you to heat a room without cluttering it with heating radiators.
Having established a warm water floor in your apartment, you will not freeze, even if you walk barefoot. Heated floor will make your home warm and comfortable. Firms engaged in the manufacture of such a system, guarantee its reliability and quality.
When using the same heat sources, floor water heating has a significant difference from radiator heating – the method of heat distribution.
Warm water floors are designed for rooms with a small area. It can be country houses or apartments, where the room has an area of 12m2, there is a bathroom and a kitchen.
They consist of:
pipes through which water circulates;
special brackets that fix the turns of pipes from the collector to the floor;
additional pipe fastening elements.
The water that circulates through the pipes heats the area of the room evenly. Floors warm able to respond to any climate change. Operation of such a floor depends on the tube, which is responsible for the permeability of the coolant. If the capacity of the tube meets the standards, then such a floor will delight you for about fifty years.
Before you install the floor, you need to be sure that in the near future there will be no repair of walls and floors. Also, doors and windows should be installed in the right room. The floor should be perfectly flat and equal in height along the entire perimeter.
