Enviroair Underfloor Heating, for Comfort and Efficiency

Taking advantage of one of the most basic laws of physics, that heat rises, Firebird’s Enviroair Underfloor Heating is far more efficient than traditional radiators when heating a home as it provides a steady, even temperature throughout the house. 

Whether you are building a new house or upgrading, “wet” underfloor heating 

creates a more comfortable environment than the air provided by conventional radiators. Firebird Enviroair Underfloor Heating is suitable for a wide range of ground and upper floor constructions and can easily be combined with radiator systems for extensions and conservatories. 

Firebird Enviroair Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating generally runs at 45°C as opposed to 80°C used in radiator systems, which saves hugely on energy and running costs, especially when used with a renewable heat source like an Air Source Heat Pump. Enviroair Underfloor Heating kits from Firebird contain all the components required for use with the Firebird Enviroair Air Source Heat Pump.

A “wet” underfloor heating system is like a giant radiator at floor level. A series of plastic pipes are connected to a heat source to circulate warm water throughout the floor to heat the space by producing radiant heat. Since the floor (the radiator) is so large and the heat is more evenly distributed, it only needs to run at a low temperature to heat the room. This means that the water flowing around the floor needs to be at a far lower temperature than a traditional radiator system. The underfloor heating system heats the living area in the room, whilst the heat from the radiator system collects at the ceiling – a much less efficient heating method.

Firebird’s Enviroair Underfloor Heating is a Multilayer Railing system. The Multilayer Pipe with an embedded aluminium layer is oxygen tight. Despite being highly flexible, this multilayer pipe is characterised by high tenacity and fatigue strength. The fixing of the underfloor heating pipes takes place with the help of the self-adhesive fixing rails. A rail installation has the advantage that the heating circuits can be changed as desired without damaging the underlying insulation. It provides a good acoustic as the impact noise insulation is not penetrated.

Designed to achieve the highest possible levels of efficiency, Firebird products not only provide a heating solution that is cost-effective, but one that will stand the test of time. For more information visit www.firebird.ie or email sales@firebird.ie
