Installed as a sealed system, Underfloor Heating (UFH), also referred to as radiant underfloor heating, requires the same controls as a typical sealed radiator type installation. Because radiant underfloor heating systems use a much lower circulating temperature and because the radiant panel is the surface that people are walking on, it is crucial that there is a good control system in place to maintain the circulating temperature at an even level. In this type of system the pipe runs, or loops, are fed to each zone from a central distribution point which has both a flow manifold supplying the higher temperature water to the pipe system and a return manifold which receives the water back after it has transferred its energy to the floor. At this point of distribution a mixing valve is used to blend the flow and return water together to maintain an even distribution temperature, a bypass is also fitted – or in some cases integrated into the valve – to return a portion of the water back to the boiler to be reheated.
As one of the UK’s leading underfloor heating manufacturers and suppliers, the Reliance Water Controls brand offers a range of products for underfloor heating systems including stand-alone underfloor mixing valves, single and multi-room mixers, manifolds and associated controls.
