Concrete Heating System
Hard flooring, such as polished concrete, typically uses an in-concrete heating system. This product is typically used when new concrete foundations are laid and tied to the reinforcing steel at the bottom of the foundation. It is also used when a new 25 - 50 cm concrete topping is applied. We recommend in-concrete heating for zones up to <50 M².
Benefits of In-concrete Heating
In-concrete heating certainly will take the chill off the floor and provide a lovely even warm floor. The concrete heating system needs to be set up correctly to optimise efficiency. This means using a floor temperature probe and minimum temperature (night setback), say 16°C, so warmth is maintained in the foundations overnight and therefore does not use excessive energy to get back to the desired temperature when needed. There is a heat storage advantage and suitable if you have a cheaper power night rate.
