In under floor heating, rooms are heated by (lukewarm) water circulating in continuous pipe loops embedded in the concrete floors or aluminium plates. To ensure total reliability, there are no joints in the pipes in the floors. The floor surface reaches a pleasant temperature of around 27°C, and produces an even heat at all points in the room.
Virtually any floor covering can be used from the obvious such as stone, tiles etc., but many people are surprised to see that the seemingly unlikely combination of wooden floors and underfloor heating are growing hugely in popularity. Most solid woods can be used (avoid Beech it cracks!) once dried slowly over the heated floor before fixing (they will shrink a little width-ways before fixing), alternatively some manufacturers of wooden floors with engineered carry a warranty for use with this type of heating. Whilst this type of flooring is more expensive per square metre initially, there are cost and time savings in construction.
In parts of the house needing greater levels of heat such as near large windows or in the conservatories pipes are laid at closer spacing, so giving greater heat where required.
