Underfloor heating: how does it work and how is it made?
L'radiant floor is a system that allows the heating of the environments through the irradiation of the surface.
The radiating elements, made of pipes made of material resistant to high temperatures and trampling, are placed under the floor, in the wall or in the ceiling, according to specific needs.
The plant is thus invisible, to the benefit of the aesthetics and allowing a better use of space.
The transmission of heat takes place mainly by radiation and not by convection (as in the case of the radiators). In this way you avoid annoying movements of air and dust and the heat is distributed more evenly. Contact us now for a quote or for more information
A heating or cooling floor, as the whole range of our radiant systems, works at low temperatures by reducing the time needed to get up to speed, a radiant system guarantees a considerable energy saving compared to other systems.
Furthermore, in systems with underfloor heating the heat dissipation is much lower, thanks to a better insulation of the bearing elements.
Technical studies show that the energy saving that you can get from a system of floor heating is from a 8% up to a 30%.

The system for radiant floor cooling
The plant floor heating as well as being a very good heating system for the winter, it is also the solution for summer cooling.
With a single system, low consumption and invisible, you can get saving and comfort in all seasons. Choose the radiant system for your home
How much does a heating floor?
The price to be incurred for the purchase of equipment depends on several factors, mainly related to the type and quality of the structure.
In general, the higher the dispersion of 'building and the greater the expense for the material to be installed (pipe and insulation thickness). So good insulation of the building provides both savings in the management of heating a saving in the plant.

Match the floor system to the heat pump or boiler
The radiant systems operate with water at low temperature (-25 40 ° C) and are therefore ideals to be integrated with heat pumps, Condensing boilers etc., And with any technology that takes advantage of renewable energy sources.
The efficiency of a heat pump improves the 25% if combined with a radiating system compared to a system with fan coils, both in heating and cooling.
Its radiant systems Rossato Group adds heat pumps high efficiency and control systems targeted to propose a plant system integrated, comprehensive and high performance.
Common questions about underfloor heating
We have prepared several fact sheets on topics most requested by our customers.
All the components of the systems Radiant wall and ceiling Rossato Group have been carefully designed and tested to ensure a long life of the system, without the need for maintenance. Our customers are satisfied with the radiant system, as shown by responses of plants built.
Which floor for the radiant heating system?
The radiant system is compatible with all types of cladding as long as they do not have a thermal resistance greater than 0,15 m2k / W. Marble, ceramic, stone or granite floors are better suited to radiant systems for their better ability to conduct heat.
Before moving to the laying of any finishing material you must realize the screed, which in addition to the normal function of load distribution, being the seat of the tubes heating ago by real heat carrier.
Read guide implementation of the screed for underfloor heating.
Can floor heating be combined with solar systems?
The low operating temperatures of the radiant heating system (25-35 ° C) guarantee an advantageous combination with the systems with solar panels. The solar system can give so much energy even in winter.
Why choose radiant systems Rossato Group?
