Thermostats

Thermostats for underfloor heating.

There are a variety of different thermostats available to use with your underfloor heating.

Let me explain the differences…

Firstly, they can either be Air, Probe or Dual thermostats. The difference between these functions is as follows:

Air thermostat:

This thermostat will read the ambient air temperature of the area that it is installed in. Thus, if set to say 28 degrees, it will turn on as soon as the air temperature in the area drops below 28 degrees.

Probe thermostat:

This thermostat will read the temperature of the floor surface that it is connected to. hence, if it is set to 28 degrees, it will switch on as soon as the physical surface of the floor drops below that temperature. This thermostat is essential when heating laminated wooden flooring, screed and when the thermostat is installed outside of the area that it is heating. (IE: in a bathroom scenario where the thermostat is installed in the bedroom etc)

Lastly, a Dual thermostat:

This thermostat can be set to read either the ambient air temperature of the room OR the floor temperature using a probe.

Our thermostats also come in 2×2, 4×4 or surface mount  thermostats.

Thus they are mounted into a box in the wall that has direct lines from the D.B board. Alternatively, we have surface mount thermostats that are installed on the surface of the wall. They do not require a box. Thus they are plugged into the wall plug.

The difference between Analogue and Digital.

Analogue thermostats are simply set to the desired temperature and will come on when the room drops below that setting. Thus they are a very simple “no mess, no fuss” thermostat. Digital thermostats are intelligent devices and can be set with many different options.

All of our thermostats are energy saving devices. Thus they ensure that your heating runs at a cost effective and affordable rate.
