Underfloor heating is fast becoming the most popular form of heating. In most forms it is inexpensive to install, economical to run, there is no maintenance and above all, the heat distribution is total.
It is invisible in so much as there are no radiators or heaters showing. It can be installed under almost every floor type, wood, tile and laminate making it ideal for refurbishment projects. Even laid on top of an existing floor and covered with tiles the floor height is raised no more than 20mm.
You can see from the diagrams below the advantages over normal, radiator type heating, and when the ease of Diy installation is considered with the Deviheat system and also the many other DIY installation kits available, it is perfect for most heating purposes, in most homes. In terms of the Deviheat system (and again many other underfloor heating systems), this is simply a single heating cable which, acting as a kind of element, is laid all over the floor with an optimum distance between runs.
Using a Devimat system, the cable is stuck to a mat, which in turn, sticks to the floor. The cable must start and finish at the same point to allow connection to an electrical outlet and can be thermostatically controlled with a proprietary regulator.
Traditional Heating System
Traditional heating systems emit hot air which remains under the ceiling until it becomes cold, then it falls down and results in a draught
What is Deviheat?
Deviheat™ is an underfloor heating system that can be used in both domestic and commercial properties. The heating elements themselves can be installed under almost any flooring type from wood to tiles.
The deviheat™ heating system comes in either heating cables or heating mats and are controlled by one of 2 different types of thermosts - the devireg™ or deviheat™ thermostatic controller
The syestem itself provides efficient room heating, be it at home, at the office, in a work shop, sports hall or virtually anywhere that requires comfortable warmth.
The area where the floor heating is to be fitted is measured. A sketch is made of the floor to determine the size of the devimat™ needed and marked to indicate where it should be placed and position of it's power supply
connections. The mat must start and finish at the same place.
