Case Study: Underfloor Heating and Ceiling Cooling

Installing domestic hot and cold services with Underfloor Heating and Ceiling Cooling Already working with Multipipe for the underfloor heating system and domestic hot and cold services for the build, Excelsior Heating Services asked if we could also help with the cooling system, as they had no previous experience in it. Because it is well insulated and has a lot of glass, one of the challenges was the heating in the building. The client’s consultant wanted to use cooling via the heat pump system, and the original design for the cooling involved using ceiling panels and wall panels. We suggested it would be better to install the system directly into the fabric of the building and plaster it in to give it a true thermal mass.

Adapting to Part L regulation changes

How Multipipe are adapting to Part L regulation changes In December 2021, the UK Government announced the first major changes to the Building Regulations in nearly a decade by releasing the latest approved documents affecting parts L, F & O. The Future Homes Standard (FHS) is due to be implemented in 2025. The new building regulations form part of the Government policy to achieve the FHS. This link takes you to the Government document on Part L The FHS dictates that new homes must produce at least a 75% reduction in CO2 emissions. Therefore, in relation to the 2013 version of the document, the recently released Part L version aims for an average decrease of 27% to 30% in CO2 emissions, providing a springboard to the upcoming requirements of the Future Homes Standard. As a result, all new heating systems will have to be designed with a maximum flow temperature […]

7 Classic UFH installation errors. And how to avoid them

7 Classic UFH installation errors. And how to avoid them As the UK moves towards its net carbon zero goals, the installation of underfloor heating systems is growing in popularity. However, it’s not without its pitfalls. This article looks at seven of the most common mistakes made during UFH installations and why it’s best to avoid them. Failing to prepare the floor The base floor must be properly prepared ahead of installing the UFH system. The screed, thermal insulation and UFH pipes cannot be put down on uneven surfaces. Careless preparation of the base skipping the levelling and cleaning stage means it will not provide stable support for the screed, leading to cracking. If the screed cracks, there is a risk that the UFH pipes will be damaged and may leak. If the base floor is not completely dry before laying the finished floor, there is the possibility of unpleasant […]

The regulations provide flexibility on meeting the targets, and […]

What is an Underfloor Heating Manifold?

Underfloor Heating Manifolds – Explained As underfloor heating installation grows increasingly popular, it’s important to understand the critical parts of a UFH system and how they operate. This blog will explain what an underfloor heating manifold is and how it works. Manifolds are the central control hubs of water in underfloor heating systems. They manage water flow rates and any room zoning you have. In addition, manifolds work to circulate heated water through the UFH pipes to provide each system zone with comfortable, energy-efficient heating. What is an Underfloor Heating Manifold? Manifolds are crucial parts of a water-based underfloor heating system. They connect the heat source to the underfloor heating pipework and act as the termination point for the floor circuits (pipework). Manifolds circulate heated water from the heat source (e.g. boiler) through the underfloor pipework whilst controlling the flow rates. If a mixing unit is used, they also control […]

Case Study: Underfloor Heating and Ceiling Cooling

Installing domestic hot and cold services with Underfloor Heating and Ceiling Cooling Already working with Multipipe for the underfloor heating system and domestic hot and cold services for the build, Excelsior Heating Services asked if we could also help with the cooling system, as they had no previous experience in it. Because it is well insulated and has a lot of glass, one of the challenges was the heating in the building. The client’s consultant wanted to use cooling via the heat pump system, and the original design for the cooling involved using ceiling panels and wall panels. We suggested it would be better to install the system directly into the fabric of the building and plaster it in to give it a true thermal mass.

Adapting to Part L regulation changes

How Multipipe are adapting to Part L regulation changes In December 2021, the UK Government announced the first major changes to the Building Regulations in nearly a decade by releasing the latest approved documents affecting parts L, F & O. The Future Homes Standard (FHS) is due to be implemented in 2025. The new building regulations form part of the Government policy to achieve the FHS. This link takes you to the Government document on Part L The FHS dictates that new homes must produce at least a 75% reduction in CO2 emissions. Therefore, in relation to the 2013 version of the document, the recently released Part L version aims for an average decrease of 27% to 30% in CO2 emissions, providing a springboard to the upcoming requirements of the Future Homes Standard. As a result, all new heating systems will have to be designed with a maximum flow temperature […]

7 Classic UFH installation errors. And how to avoid them

7 Classic UFH installation errors. And how to avoid them As the UK moves towards its net carbon zero goals, the installation of underfloor heating systems is growing in popularity. However, it’s not without its pitfalls. This article looks at seven of the most common mistakes made during UFH installations and why it’s best to avoid them. Failing to prepare the floor The base floor must be properly prepared ahead of installing the UFH system. The screed, thermal insulation and UFH pipes cannot be put down on uneven surfaces. Careless preparation of the base skipping the levelling and cleaning stage means it will not provide stable support for the screed, leading to cracking. If the screed cracks, there is a risk that the UFH pipes will be damaged and may leak. If the base floor is not completely dry before laying the finished floor, there is the possibility of unpleasant […]

What is an Underfloor Heating Manifold?

Underfloor Heating Manifolds – Explained As underfloor heating installation grows increasingly popular, it’s important to understand the critical parts of a UFH system and how they operate. This blog will explain what an underfloor heating manifold is and how it works. Manifolds are the central control hubs of water in underfloor heating systems. They manage water flow rates and any room zoning you have. In addition, manifolds work to circulate heated water through the UFH pipes to provide each system zone with comfortable, energy-efficient heating. What is an Underfloor Heating Manifold? Manifolds are crucial parts of a water-based underfloor heating system. They connect the heat source to the underfloor heating pipework and act as the termination point for the floor circuits (pipework). Manifolds circulate heated water from the heat source (e.g. boiler) through the underfloor pipework whilst controlling the flow rates. If a mixing unit is used, they also control […]

Installing domestic hot and cold services with Underfloor Heating and Ceiling Cooling Already working with Multipipe for the underfloor heating system and domestic hot and cold services for the build, Excelsior Heating Services asked if we could also help with the cooling system, as they had no previous experience in it. Because it is well insulated and has a lot of glass, one of the challenges was the heating in the building. The client’s consultant wanted to use cooling via the heat pump system, and the original design for the cooling involved using ceiling panels and wall panels. We suggested it would be better to install the system directly into the fabric of the building and plaster it in to give it a true thermal mass.

Adapting to Part L regulation changes

How Multipipe are adapting to Part L regulation changes In December 2021, the UK Government announced the first major changes to the Building Regulations in nearly a decade by releasing the latest approved documents affecting parts L, F & O. The Future Homes Standard (FHS) is due to be implemented in 2025. The new building regulations form part of the Government policy to achieve the FHS. This link takes you to the Government document on Part L The FHS dictates that new homes must produce at least a 75% reduction in CO2 emissions. Therefore, in relation to the 2013 version of the document, the recently released Part L version aims for an average decrease of 27% to 30% in CO2 emissions, providing a springboard to the upcoming requirements of the Future Homes Standard. As a result, all new heating systems will have to be designed with a maximum flow temperature […]

7 Classic UFH installation errors. And how to avoid them

7 Classic UFH installation errors. And how to avoid them As the UK moves towards its net carbon zero goals, the installation of underfloor heating systems is growing in popularity. However, it’s not without its pitfalls. This article looks at seven of the most common mistakes made during UFH installations and why it’s best to avoid them. Failing to prepare the floor The base floor must be properly prepared ahead of installing the UFH system. The screed, thermal insulation and UFH pipes cannot be put down on uneven surfaces. Careless preparation of the base skipping the levelling and cleaning stage means it will not provide stable support for the screed, leading to cracking. If the screed cracks, there is a risk that the UFH pipes will be damaged and may leak. If the base floor is not completely dry before laying the finished floor, there is the possibility of unpleasant […]

Changes to Building Regs Part L, F & O

Changes to Building Regs Part L, F & O In December 2021, the UK Government announced the first major changes to the Building Regulations in nearly a decade by releasing the latest approved documents affecting parts L, F & O. The Future Homes Standard (FHS) is due to be implemented in 2025. The new building regulations form part of the Government policy to achieve the FHS. The FHS dictates that new homes need to produce at least a 75% reduction of CO2 emissions. Therefore, the recently released Part L version aims for an average decrease of 27% to 30% in CO2 emissions. The decrease provides a springboard to the upcoming requirements of the Future Homes Standard. As a result, all new heating systems will have to be designed with a maximum flow temperature of 55°C or lower from June this year. The regulations provide flexibility on meeting the targets, and […]

What is an Underfloor Heating Manifold?

Underfloor Heating Manifolds – Explained As underfloor heating installation grows increasingly popular, it’s important to understand the critical parts of a UFH system and how they operate. This blog will explain what an underfloor heating manifold is and how it works. Manifolds are the central control hubs of water in underfloor heating systems. They manage water flow rates and any room zoning you have. In addition, manifolds work to circulate heated water through the UFH pipes to provide each system zone with comfortable, energy-efficient heating. What is an Underfloor Heating Manifold? Manifolds are crucial parts of a water-based underfloor heating system. They connect the heat source to the underfloor heating pipework and act as the termination point for the floor circuits (pipework). Manifolds circulate heated water from the heat source (e.g. boiler) through the underfloor pipework whilst controlling the flow rates. If a mixing unit is used, they also control […]

The Future Homes Standard (FHS) is due to be implemented in 2025. The new building regulations form part of the Government policy to achieve the FHS. This link takes you to the Government document on Part L The FHS dictates that new homes must produce at least a 75% reduction in CO2 emissions. Therefore, in relation to the 2013 version of the document, the recently released Part L version aims for an average decrease of 27% to 30% in CO2 emissions, providing a springboard to the upcoming requirements of the Future Homes Standard. As a result, all new heating systems will have to be designed with a maximum flow temperature […]

7 Classic UFH installation errors. And how to avoid them

7 Classic UFH installation errors. And how to avoid them As the UK moves towards its net carbon zero goals, the installation of underfloor heating systems is growing in popularity. However, it’s not without its pitfalls. This article looks at seven of the most common mistakes made during UFH installations and why it’s best to avoid them. Failing to prepare the floor The base floor must be properly prepared ahead of installing the UFH system. The screed, thermal insulation and UFH pipes cannot be put down on uneven surfaces. Careless preparation of the base skipping the levelling and cleaning stage means it will not provide stable support for the screed, leading to cracking. If the screed cracks, there is a risk that the UFH pipes will be damaged and may leak. If the base floor is not completely dry before laying the finished floor, there is the possibility of unpleasant […]

The regulations provide flexibility on meeting the targets, and […]

What is an Underfloor Heating Manifold?

Underfloor Heating Manifolds – Explained As underfloor heating installation grows increasingly popular, it’s important to understand the critical parts of a UFH system and how they operate. This blog will explain what an underfloor heating manifold is and how it works. Manifolds are the central control hubs of water in underfloor heating systems. They manage water flow rates and any room zoning you have. In addition, manifolds work to circulate heated water through the UFH pipes to provide each system zone with comfortable, energy-efficient heating. What is an Underfloor Heating Manifold? Manifolds are crucial parts of a water-based underfloor heating system. They connect the heat source to the underfloor heating pipework and act as the termination point for the floor circuits (pipework). Manifolds circulate heated water from the heat source (e.g. boiler) through the underfloor pipework whilst controlling the flow rates. If a mixing unit is used, they also control […]
