Experiencing the warmth underfoot as you step out of bed on a cold winters morning is what you remember about the beauty of slab heating.
Slab Heating is Clean and Healthy
Underfloor hydronic heating is a clean, safe and zero-allergen central heating system. The hydronic system operates at low water temperatures, reducing operating costs to a minimum. The floor slab transforms into a slow-release radiant heat bank providing uniform temperature throughout your home or office space.
How it works
Trevena slab heating systems are highly efficient and in their design. Using the thermal mass of the concrete slab, the heat transfer delivers optimum thermal comfort at much lower temperatures, reducing over-heat losses. Incorporating hydronics, underfloor heating with a high-efficiency condensing boiler reduces running costs with up to 20% savings on gas bills.
Designs and solutions can be tailored for your needs, including single or multi storey homes, suspended floor requirements or secondary pour systems. Once you’ve experienced slab hydronic heating comfort, you’ll be converted for life.
Efficient and Economical
Underfloor hydronic radiant heat systems are closely aligned with the ‘optimum heat curve’ as defined by the heating industry, making it the most economical and efficient means of heating.
We can install underfloor heating and cooling systems for existing homes as well as new homes single or double story. Our range of Immergas Partage Boxes (Multi – System Distribution Manifolds) allow home owners to combine slab heating and hydronic radiator panels, towel rails or electric panels in separate living zones. For example; the downstairs living area has underfloor slab heating while upstairs is heated with hydronic radiators.
Silent and energy efficient
One characteristic of hydronic heating which is a clear advantage over many others is the fact it is silent, not relying on noisy electric fans cycling on and off.
Radiant and naturally convected heat warms your home in peace and quiet. Hydronic heating allows you more flexible and economical bespoke roomby-room control of heating and comfort, (this can also be very important in those homes with sensitive and hi-tech electronics, antiques and artifacts).
Significantly less operating time is required to maintain the desired warmth compared to other methods of heating, keeping operational cost to a minimum.
A high efficiency condensing hydronic boiler, installed within your home will quickly achieve the desired temperature and with the boilers intelligent controls enhanced with weather compensating sensor (optional) communicating directly with the fully modulating burner efficiencies can achieve 96.6% reducing gas consumption and running cost.
A cleaner, greener environment
Europeans with their very harsh winters have known for decades that hydronic heating is the most efficient form of central heating. This is why they now lead the world in terms of design and manufacture of eco friendly, energy saving boilers and systems.
