Under Floor Heating Systems

One of our specialties is Under Floor Heating Systems. This is when a continuous cable heating element is woven into a mat that is installed underneath the tile before the tile is laid down. It is easy to install and cheap to use, only drawing power equal to that of a large tv. It has a GFCI-protected thermostat which instantly shuts off the power if there is a short or some other problem.

Once the mortar is down for the tile, we will embed the cable-fed mat into the mortar, keeping it at least 4” away from the toilet, walls, showers and tubs. We make sure there are no gaps as you will be able to tell after the floor is down where the gaps are at by the changes in temperature.

This is when the thermostat wires are added. The sensing bulb is weaved into the mesh and is kept at least 12” into the warming area.The thermostat wires must also be equallydistanced between the heating element, then then the thermostat wire isran to connect to the electrical box.

Once the electrical is all installed, we then spread a flat layer of mortar over the top of the heating element, pressing it firmly down through the mesh and onto the floor, filling any gaps. Then a notched trowel is used to create grooves for setting the tile in the mortar. Once done with that, the tile is installed as directed and the floor is done.

There are many steps not mentioned that pertain to checking the heating element before the installation of the system, running the electrical system to the appropriate areas and other essentials that our contractor will discuss and do for you.

Fuse Boxes

A fuse box is where all your electrical systems run to and from. Everything in your house that requires electricity starts and ends at your fuse box. One of the services we offer is installation of fuse boxes, whether it is an entirely new electrical system or updating an old one.

Before starting, the main power to the house must be shut off for safety reasons. Once installation of the electrical begins, the power must remain off until the electrician has completed his project. They will install the necessary 240-volt circuits to the main fuses to start. 120-volt circuits are installed in the middle area of the fuse box. Once this is completed, the box is closed. They then plug both holders into the fuse box, pushing them into the correct socket and screwing them in firmly.

Vented, Unvented Systems

Both vented and unvented hot water heater/boilers use cylinders, with the main difference being the way each one is supplied with water. A vented hot water cylinder gets its water from a water tank that it is connected to, while unvented get its water directly from the water main.

Normally , with the vented water boiler, you will keep the tank above the cylinder and use gravity to carry the water down. The nice part of vented is it is cheap and simple to install and maintain. Also, if water stops running for whatever reason, you will still have a tank full stored for use.

The unfortunate part of a vented cylinder is that it relies on gravity to feed the water, so it is only as strong as the gravity you have. The higher it is, the better it will be. A second-floor shower would not have as much pressure as a first floor or basement shower, though.

For an unvented cylinder, there is no tank, the water coming directly from the main line which means your pressure will be stronger. You don’t need to worry about a tank, they usually have stronger pressure than an unvented one, and there is less possibility for contamination since there isn’t a storage tank.

The down side is that they are more complicated than the unvented cylinder, if the main water gets shut off you will not have any water running to your home until it is turned back on, and unvented cylinders are not always compatible with other systems, like a modern power shower.

Our experts will discuss the options with you after hearing your needs and assessing your home and help decide which is best for your home.

Direct Systems

A direct system is entirely different than vented and unvented systems. A direct system is a heating system that has the heat emitters directly connected to the boiler heating system. Some advantages are that it is simple to operate and maintain, can be quite powerful, less expensive and lower maintenance costs, and safe for unsupervised use. The downfall is that since it is connected directly to the water heating system, if a leak occurred, serious burns or damage could be done as the water supply is essentially unlimited.
