What is HeatLink®
A heating system where warm water is pumped from a boiler through engineered pipes laid underneath the floor surface. The heat in these pipes radiates to the surface and rises evenly throughout the room above.

What does if feel like?
Like walking on a warm ( but not hot) beach, without the sand.
It is a comfortable heat, designed to be no higher than is neccessary
to meet its target demand. The heat is even and the surfaces stay
warm to the touch.
What does it look like?
Your floor will look no different. However, tile, hardwood, slate or marble are now serious flooring options, as floor heating will keep them warm.
What is life like with Energy Superstore UnderFloor Heating?
The floors are warm, so you'll spend less time looking for your slippers and more time on the floor with the kids, or your paper.
Furniture arrangements can be as free and creative as you like, as there are no radiators or grills to work around...
It's all in the floors
Allergy sufferers breath easier with an Energy Superstore underfloor heating system. Dust and air borne allergies aren't circulating about the house through convection. There will be room on your side table for a beverage and a snack, because the tissue box won't be needed.
No drafts, and no hot and cold spots
With an Energy Superstore UnderFloor Heating. Continuous personal temperature adjustments made with wollens and blankets are no longer necessary ... the heat in your home is even.
What is the difference between Energy Superstore UnderFloor Heating and a convective system?
Most heat systems are convective systems because they use air as the primary heat-transfer medium. Typically, heating outlets are placed on outside walls and the system is designed to fill the area with warm air until the preset temperature on the thermostat is reached. The warm air rises to the ceiling until it cools, falling to the floor for return to the radiators. With UnderFloor Heating, the heat is not at the ceiling, but where you are. A radiator system like our underfloor heating warms objects directly, people and furnishings alike, to a comfortable temperature.
What explains the effective and efficient heat of the underfloor system?
With convection systems, air stratification and heat loss to the ceiling is
significant. When super-heated air from a radiator flows against relatively cold
exterior walls, the increased temperature differential results in a stack effect
that draws cold air into the house through any cracks. Air infiltration and
exfiltrationincreases the difference between inside and outside temperatures
becomes larger. With radiant systems, air-infiltration heat loss is reduced, as
air is only warmed to the temperature of the thermostat setting
( which is usually lower to start with).
An Energy Superstore UnderFloor Heating System warns objects directly, like people
and furnishings, to a comfortable temperature.
The temperature differential at the outside wall is less, thereby reducing air
infiltration. The heating system operates at the lowest
possible water temperature to heat the structure.
What about humidity control?
Although the underfloor heating system only deals with sensible heat and not humidity control, humidification is usually unnecessary because radiant heat does not alter air moisture content, which is generally adequate if the air isn't dried out by combustion or by increased infiltration of cold, dry outside air.
What about controls?
State-of-the-art thermostats let you determine what areas of the home are heated and when. You can have the master bathroom warm at 6a.m. weekday mornings, but at 9a.m. on the weekends. Energy Superstore UnderFloor Heating allows for individually customised room temperature levels, different temperatures in different rooms.
What about Maintenance?
Trained service people are readily available. Components require minimal maintenance ( no ducts to clean, no filters to change, no fan belts to replace). Hot water heating components generally require little or no maintenance. Boilers may require cleaning, depending on the manufacturer and type.
What about the future ... expanding the home?
Planning for the future is easy with a boiler. Most hydraulic heating systems can easily be extended to accommodate minor additions by adding an additional loop or pipe. Pipe can always be roughed-in for future additions.
