How Do You Advise on Running a New UFH System to a Customer?
Over the years, I have had various calls from homeowners about running an UFH system and I think education is the biggest downfall in UFH system running.
Many end-users that have never owned a UFH system will run it like a radiator, whereby they have the heating on in the morning, off during the day and on again in the evening.
For a highly reactive system, this is fine. However, when you have a traditional screed underfloor heating system, this is known as a slow reaction system. So, it would help if you looked at how to run it differently. The best way is to run your heating system continuously through the winter months, using the thermostats in the room to maintain the temperature.
This might sound illogical and use more energy, but this will use less energy than switching the system on and off!
