This prevents a strong circulation of air that makes floor heating is ideal for people suffering from allergies. The surface temperature of the floor is usually limited to thermostat to 26 – 28 C, for which the temperature of heating elements located under the material floor should be approximately 30 – 33 C. When setting up the regulatory system of floor heating you should keep in mind that when the outdoor temperature is above the design temperature, the surface temperature of the floor should be lower than the calculated value, otherwise the room temperature rises excessively. Electric floor heating is carried out using heating cables, nets, mats, or foil, depending on the design of floors and floors, it is necessary to consider before you start construction and repairs. Underfloor heating can be built into the floors of virtually any design. Underfloor heating systems have low operating costs: heating cables require no maintenance and have a lifespan of up to several tens of years. However, in case of damage to the heater cable, it poses no threat surrounding structures, and the fault is immediately apparent.
Damaged area can be easily detected and repaired. In concrete floors, under floor heating can be applied using accumulated heat. In this case, the heating can be switched on during the day when electricity costs the least (usually – in the night). However, such systems are much slower to respond to regulatory exposure. The control system must determine the amount of heat that must be accumulated, so that the room temperature does not rise too high during the period of release of heat. This especially true in spring and autumn, when the difference between day and night temperatures can be quite significant. In addition to use of management and operation mode on the amount of energy consumed by floor heating affects the energy efficiency that it is lower than that of panel heaters. The reason for this is the method used as built-in heating system during construction characterized by significant heat loss (approximately 2 – 4%) through the construction of floors, as well as additional heat loss due to the slow response to the signal controllers. However, operating costs of such a system is usually lower due to the use of preferential tariffs for electricity, and often heated floor keeps the room temperature at a lower level, without prejudice to comfort.
