In recent years, the floor heating system has been popular in developed countries and the reason of increasing expansion of floor heating system is energy efficiency, even distribution of heating in all surface and space and avoid the current problems in other ways, such as walls blackening, pipes rotting, etc. using of floor heating system was long being done for building in different methods.
In general, there are three types of floor heating system:
Heating with hot air flow
Heating with electricity
Heating with hot water flow
The warm air method in the residential cases is not cost-effective because the air cannot hold much heat and the electrical method is cost-effective only when the electricity price is low. In compared to the two mentioned methods, the heating with hot water (hydraulic) is more cost-effective and more acceptable. Because of this, it has been used in worldwide for many years. The floor heating system method is known as the easiest, healthiest and most natural method for heating system. As people feel warm in a cold winter day by sun radiation, they also receive heating by transferring radiation heating (radiant) from the floor in the floor heating system and they certainly will feel more relaxed. In the floor heating system, usually the hot water temperature in the bedroom floor pipes is between 30 to 60 ° C that in compared to other existing heating methods that the water temperature is between 54 to 71 ° C, will save 20 to 40 percent in energy consumption. In the buildings with high ceilings, using of floor heating system will make energy consumption reduced and the fuel consumption saved, to this reason that in the other methods (such as radiator and heater) because of density decreasing, the heated air lights and go toward the ceiling and the first place that it heats is the ceiling. Due to high air temperature in near the ceiling, amount of its heating transferring to the ceiling is higher than anywhere else, and this factor makes a lot of energy wasted.
In the floor heating method, the lower part that the residents require it first heats and the air will reach to the ceiling with less temperature, which this is one of the main advantages of floor heating system. Another advantages of using of floor heating system that today it is much regarded, is people’s comfort and convenience, as the people’s comfort and convenience in the residence is provided without there is no limitation in any terms.

Another advantage of floor heating system is that is prevented of walls moisture and mildew that has not a good shape and the other is that there is no place for growth and propagation of vermin insects. One other advantages of floor heating system is that the home or work space is no longer occupied by radiator devices and heater and for this reason you will have more freedom in changing the living location’s decoration. It may seem that you cannot choose your favorite covering for the floor when you install the bedroom floor system! But it is not so.
