Electric Underfloor Heating
Carman Heating is a specialist installer of residential and commercial electric underfloor heating systems in Adelaide. We work with high quality, European-made systems that are maintenance free, suitable for use under a variety of floor surfaces, and come with a 20 year warranty on cables and mats.
Electric underfloor heating is ideal for bathrooms, ensuites and laundry rooms. It can be fitted to new or existing homes without taking up valuable floor space. The biggest advantage of electric underfloor heating is that heat is not lost in the exhaust air, like it is with conventional forced air systems. Electric underfloor heating also reduces the amount of moving dust particles, providing great relief to allergy and asthma sufferers.
Why floor heating?
Traditional forced-air systems produce convection currents around each room causing the unpleasant feeling of being overheated with our feet remaining cold due to the return air. The air moving across ceilings and other surfaces leads to high thermal losses and additional energy being consumed to make up for these losses. A radiant floor heating system such as electric underfloor heating, however, maintains a higher temperature on the floor than that of the air. This radiant heat warms your entire body from the ground up, whereas other forms of heating only warm the upper body.
Electric floor heating systems
Our systems have intelligent floor sensing thermostats that ensure accurate temperature control and minimal energy use. They can be installed into new slabs or on top of existing floors. You won’t lose any valuable floor or wall space and there are no unsightly grills, vents or consoles. The result is elegant simplicity and practical luxury in every room.
This form of ‘storage’ heating is suitable for one room or the whole house, providing economical warmth. It can be installed under just about any floor covering available, including carpet, timber, tiles, stone, and polished or tinted concrete floors.
This is ‘demand’ heating that can be installed under most floor coverings including carpet, timber, tiles and stone. Cables are embedded into a 20-25mm thick sand and cement screed bed.
These systems deliver warmth on demand and can be installed almost anywhere, even on top of an existing tiled floor. It is designed to be laid directly under tiles in an adhesive bed and adds a minimal increase in floor height.
Insulated Heating Panels
We recommend these for use under manufactured floating timber floors. The panel’s polystyrene insulation ensures that any heat loss downwards is minimised and its aluminium surface ensures a uniform distribution of heat transfer to the timber floor.
Our systems come with a 7-day programmable thermostat/timer featuring a flush mounted digital display touch screen and combination floor sensing probe and air sensor. You can also achieve the highest level of control and comfort by using the DEVIsmart™ App over Wi-Fi to activate or adjust your system.
Installation and Maintenance
Carman Heating is a specialised installer of European-made DEVI electric floor heating systems. Even though the installation of an electric floor heating system is uncomplicated, we take special care during installation to avoid cutting or damaging the cable in any way.
Good quality cables have a lifespan upwards of thirty years and are virtually maintenance free, as long as they have been properly installed at the outset and there is no damage to the cables. If the cable damage is minor, it can often be easily fixed by the team at Carman Heating.
