SMART HEATING IDEAS

When concidering heating for your home or commercial project let us give you a few ideas.

INSULATION  INSULATION

We do not sell it but we highly recommend it. There is nothing more important when it comes to heating [and cooling]. Insulating under a slab on ground is strongly recommended to prevent heat loss into the ground along with suspended slabs. Wall and glass insulation is also important when calculating heat load requirements for your home.

 

UNDERSTAND YOUR RUNNING COSTS

We all have different energy tariffs, peak rates at different times throughout the day and depending on your installation, different allowances for heating. Start by reading our Understanding Running Costs page to calculate your heating. Understanding your rates will assist you in programming your thermostat competently, and heating your home efficiently.

 

IN-SLAB HEATING WITH OFF PEAK ELECTRICITY

In-slab installations have thermal mass [Kevin McClouds favourite word] and heating your slab during off-peak and should rate times is a cost efficient heating option that should be utilised. Heating the slab in off-peak times can dramatically reduce your energy bill and still maintain a warm and cosy environment.

 

DIY KITS!

No need to be a electrician, plumber or builder to install a Comfort Heat floor heating kit. If you are handly and feel like a challenge our complete product range is available in DIY kits.

ADD THE HYDRONIC PIPE WORK NOW - CONNECT THE HEAT SOURCE LATER

During construction, sometimes building costs can exceed your budget and pulling back on design decisions is a sad reality. So long as you have hydronic pipe work in your slab you can always add the heating source at a later date. Comfort Heat offers a range of solutions so please call our office for chat. Contact Us
