Heating Systems

Heating systems are designed to provide warmth to indoor spaces, ensuring comfort during colder months. There are various types of heating systems, including central heating, radiant heating, forced-air systems, and more.

Hercuglas Renewables is listed on the SEAI Domestic Register. NEWS - AVAILABLE GRANTS SEAI !!! New funding ranges from €2,400 to €162,600 to support an even wider range of businesses to switch to solar. This will typically support 20-30% of the investment cost, reducing payback to as little as 2 years. New Solar PV Scheme enhancements will boost business investment in renewable energy generation.

Underfloor infrared radiant heating is a type of heating system where heat is emitted from beneath the floor surface using infrared radiation. It's a form of radiant heating that heats objects and surfaces in the room, providing a comfortable and efficient heating solution.

Infrared Radiant Heating

Infrared heating works by directly heating walls, floors, things located in a room and a human body, instead of heating the air. Then heated objects release their heat into the environment. It’s just like the Sun warms us. The heat is a product of light that is invisible to our eyes.

Pipes are a crucial component in heating systems, as they transport heated water, steam, or air throughout the building. In traditional central heating systems, hot water or steam is circulated through pipes to radiators or convectors, releasing heat into the rooms.

Cylinders and Tanks

Cylinders and tanks are used in some heating systems to store hot water. In some cases, hot water is stored in a cylinder (a hot water tank) and distributed to various parts of the building. This setup is commonly found in systems that use a boiler to heat water for domestic use and space heating.

1. Design and Planning:

  • Assess the heating needs of the building, taking into account factors like square footage, insulation, and local climate.
  • Decide on the type of heating system you want to install, including underfloor infrared radiant heating.
  • Design the layout of the underfloor heating system, including the placement of pipes and radiant panels.
  • Determine the location for cylinders and tanks, considering factors like accessibility and available space.

2. Gather Materials and Equipment:

  • Procure all the necessary components, including underfloor heating panels, pipes, controls (thermostats, timers, etc.), cylinders, and tanks.
  • Ensure that you have the appropriate tools for installation, such as pipe cutters, wrenches, and electrical tools.

3. Installation

  • Prepare the subfloor for the underfloor heating system. This may involve cleaning the surface and ensuring it's level and free from debris.
  • Install the underfloor heating panels or mats according to the manufacturer's instructions. These will house the heating pipes.
  • Lay out and secure the heating pipes within the underfloor panels. Connect the pipes to the appropriate manifolds.
  • Install the cylinders and tanks in their designated locations, connecting them to the heating system as needed.

4. Connect Controls and Plumbing:

  • Install the heating system controls, including thermostats, timers, and any smart home integration if applicable.
  • Connect the heating system to the electrical supply, ensuring proper wiring and safety measures.
  • Connect the heating system to the plumbing system, ensuring proper water flow and connections to the cylinders and tanks.

5. Testing and Commissioning:

  • Fill the heating system with water and perform a pressure test to check for leaks in the pipes and connections.
  • Test the heating system to ensure that it's functioning as intended. Check the underfloor heating, cylinders, tanks, and controls.
  • Fine-tune the system settings to achieve the desired temperature and efficiency.
  • Educate the building occupants about how to use the heating system effectively.
