Introducing Our New Self-Regulating UFH System
Now you can enjoy the warmth and natural beauty of oak flooring with underfloor heating, free from the worry of your floor cracking or your heating bills soaring.
Introducing our intelligent, super efficient, easy to install, self-regulating underfloor heating system, designed specifically for use with Oak Floors Online engineered oak flooring.
The intelligent technology in our Self-Regulating Underfloor Heating System can actually identify any hotspots, for example areas covered with a rug or even areas by windows that fall under direct sunlight, reducing output in these areas and diverting the heat to where it is most needed.
Not only does this make our Self-Regulating UFH System incredibly safe, it is also extremely efficient.
The self-regulating heating cables automatically adjust their power output to compensate for temperature changes within the floor surface. Likewise, should there be a draught from a door or window, the system output will increase there.
Put simply, the heating cables automatically adjust their power output to compensate for temperature changes within your room and especially on the surface of your floor, which makes them ideal for oak floors.
The outer jacket, braid and inner jacket provide mechanical, chemical and electrical protection but the magic happens in the conductive core, which is extruded over the two parallel conductors.
What that means to your warm feet is a little easier to understand. As the ambient temperature drops, the core contracts microscopically. It shrinks. This means the number of electrical paths through the core increases, producing more heat and happy feet.
Self-regulating technology has proven unique advantages for wooden floors.
Wood floors are a natural product and as such respond and react to the varying temperatures to which they are subjected, but the T2Red cable senses the thermal conductivity of the top floor layer and automatically adjusts its heat output to suit, thereby never overheating the core or surface of the flooring.
The gentle heat-up properties of the system means your oak floor will respond more slowly, preventing any damage caused by your wooden floor heating up too quickly such as drying out or cupping.
Not only can carpets and furniture can be safely placed on the oak floor without the risk of creating hotspots, there is also is far less likely chance of expensive furniture such as a leather suite sweating.
Oak Floors Online’s Self-Regulating Underfloor Heating System may be used with either our 15mm engineered flooring or our 21mm engineered flooring.
If your underfloor heating system is going to be your primary source of heat then we recommend our 15mm product which offers a more efficient Tog rating of 1.12 over the 1.58 Tog of the thicker 21mm product.
If you specifically desire a thicker oak floor then do not worry, our unique ThruFlow product which is 35% more efficient than the standard 21mm product when installed over any underfloor heating system is ideal and allows you to enjoy all the benefits of our Self-Regulating Underfloor Heating System as well as the slightly thicker wear layer afforded by the thicker board.
Oak Floors Online’s Self-Regulating Underfloor Heating solution is easy to install and simple to use.
The heating cable can be cut to length for any size or shaped room and the T2Red cable is easy to position. The grooves in the T2Reflecta plates mean that the T2Red cable will always be correctly spaced.
There is no filler needed and your oak floor can be laid directly on top of the plates with no glue or screws needed to fix the plates for wooden floors.
The thermostat calculates when the heating needs to be switched on to obtain the right temperature at the required preset time, so if you want your temperature to be 23 degrees at 6am when you get up, the intelligent system will turn itself on earlier to reach that temperature for that precise time.
Oak Floors Online’s Self-Regulating Underfloor Heating System uses 20% less energy than standard underfloor heating systems and requires less than half the energy of conventional wall mounted panel radiators.
Because of its proven efficiency and the fact no maintenance is required, our Self Regulating Underfloor Heating System pays for itself faster than other systems. Now there’s a return on investment you don’t so every day.
Oak Floors Online’s Self-Regulating Underfloor Heating System is very simple to fit, you will just need to have the final connection completed and tested by a qualified electrician.
