Underfloor Heating Design & Screed
KLE Group specialise in the supply and installation of high quality UFH and screed throughout the Midlands and the UK.
Wet Underfloor Heating Installation
A wet underfloor heating system can be a great way to warm floors within your home or office on a winter's day. A series of pipes circulates warm water under the floor to heat the space and these pipes are typically connected to your boiler. You can also connect them to a solar water-heating system or an air-source or ground-source heat pump. Installing Underfloor heating is a specialist job. KLE Group have the expertise, knowledge and experience to ensure that you have Underfloor heating fitted perfectly the first time and a system that will keep your home toasty warm.
It is recommended that you choose the type of screed floor at the same time as the type of underfloor heating system.
Benefits of Underfloor Heating
Reduce your heating and energy bill
As heat rises it makes sense to heat your home starting at the bottom. As underfloor heating offers individual thermostats for each room, you can heat the room or rooms of your choice.
When you install UFH, there are no need for radiators. If you only have a small living area and would much prefer the wall space rather than a radiator taking up valuable wall space , it makes sense to consider UFH.
Works with all Floor Coverings
Underfloor heating works well with a range of floor finishes – such as laminate, wood, tile, stone, carpet and more. Giving you the freedom to design your home as you wish and making the most of all the wall and floor space available to you.
Underfloor Heating Screed
Once the UFH is in place and installed, it will then be possible to install the screed mix that’s been chosen for the floor. It's important to choose the right screed for your floor to ensure the heat can travel through the floor and warm the room effectively.
There are two main types of screed that can be used of UFH. These are traditional and liquid.
Semi-dry screed or traditional screed,known as sand and cement is the most popular and is made from a mixture of sand and cement.
Water is applied to the mix to create a smooth consistency that can be applied by hand, using a trowel or other flat-edged tool and levelling board.
Also known as ‘self-leveling’ screed or ‘flowing screed’, liquid screed can be poured onto the surface to the required depth.
As a liquid screed, it is much quicker to install the screed than the traditional method. By also using a fast drying screed the chosen floor finish can be installed quicker.
It’s a great choice for those projects that have a tight deadline.
