Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Book an Underfloor Heating Specialist through YourPro?

YourPro’s online platform is a fast and convenient way to find a trusted underfloor heating engineer in Dublin. Our strict selection process ensures that our underfloor heating engineers are competent and well-trained, so you can rest assured of the quality of their craftsmanship. 



 

What Are the Most Common Services that YourPro Underfloor Heating Specialists Provide?

Here at YourPro, we strive to provide our customers with the best range of underfloor heating services in Dublin. Our skilled experts can handle any underfloor heating project, from the smallest bathroom to commercial building projects. 

Below is a list of the most common underfloor heating tasks available at YourPro at budget-friendly prices:

Installation

  • YourPro’s expert underfloor heating installation engineers can assist you with your home renovation, extension or new build. We’re happy to help you find a local expert to help you with advice and installation of any underfloor heating projects you desire.
  • There are two types of underfloor heating systems in use, which are discussed more in-depth further down the article. To summarise, you can have either a wet or dry system installed - the wet system uses heated water in pipes, and the dry system uses electrical heating cables. The advantages and disadvantages are briefly touched on below.

Repair

  • If your underfloor heating system keeps losing pressure, your manufacturer usually recommends topping up the system according to their guidelines. However, if the pressure stays low, it’s recommended that you check if the pipes connecting to the manifold aren’t leaking. If they are leaking, YourPro’s experts can help you with an emergency leak repair. Unfortunately, if it isn’t the pipes connected to the manifold, some pipes might’ve been damaged during the installation, which is likely to be a much larger job.
  • Trapped air is one of the most common problems experienced in wet underfloor heating systems. Air blocking the pipes is likely an issue most people have experienced at some time with radiators, and as a result, you will know that it’s an easy fix. You can bleed the system by opening every valve to release the air and water. You can always call one of our underfloor heating engineers to assist you with the process correctly to avoid any mishaps.
  • If you’ve installed the wrong floor finish, your flooring might be insulating the heat and preventing it from radiating into your home. Did you remember to check if it was compatible with your underfloor heating system before installing it? Furthermore, if left unchecked, the build-up of heat could cause damage to your underfloor heating system. Remember to check that the Thermal Overall Grade (TOG) rating is less than 2.5 so that the flooring can absorb heat and radiate it upwards. Unfortunately, this means that you will need to refinish your floor; contact our experts for advice on how to handle this repair.
  • The thermostat’s connection can also cause problems, and checking the connection between your thermostat and boiler is straightforward. Simply change the temperature and see if the boiler responds; this way, you will know if the thermostat is working or not. We recommend that you contact one of our experts if the thermostat doesn’t appear to be functioning.
  • The mixing valve is another control that can be set up wrong. If you have concrete screed floors, it should be set at 45℃, and for suspended wooden floors, the mixing valve should be set at 55℃ to prevent overheating. If you have any questions, contact us at YourPro for assistance.

Maintenance

  • You should service your underfloor heating system once a year. This service ensures that the pressure is correct, detects any leaks, and sometimes the system may need to be flushed. An annual service prevents any minor issues from arising or escalating and is an excellent investment to make for your peace of mind.
  • In cold weather, water inside any external pipes can freeze and then burst when they start thawing. In the worst weather, even internal pipes can explode due to this freeze/thaw cycle. Insulating pipes can save you from the damage that burst pipes inflict and make your system more efficient as less heat is lost travelling to your heating system. 
  • Generally, underfloor heating is robust and hardly has any issues, but wear and tear still happens. Thankfully, most of the problems experienced are with the components above the floor and not the pipes buried under it. The heating system is designed to make all the parts that need servicing easily accessible by the engineer.
Keep an eye out for signs of a breakdown in your underfloor heating system. For example, if it starts making noises or smells, and if your floor has cold or hot spots, these signs can indicate that there’s a problem. We recommend that you contact one of our expert underfloor heating engineers if the signs continue or escalate.

What types of Underfloor Heating Systems are there?

The underfloor heating solution is installed under your floor, just as the name suggests. However, there are two types of underfloor heating systems for you to choose from: wet and dry. The dry underfloor heating system uses an electric heating cable, and the wet system uses hot water pumped through pipes to keep your home warm.

The water-based system can be hooked up to your central heating system and is cheaper to run as it’s more efficient. However, it’s easier to build it into a new building or extension due to the pipework and boiler capacity. We suggest that you ensure your boiler can handle the extra load. If you have any doubts, ask YourPro’s expert underfloor heating engineer.

The dry system, while less efficient, is better for renovations or existing builds as it can be installed separately. Dry underfloor heating is popular for smaller areas, like bathrooms, especially when combined with a timer to make it less expensive to run.



 

What’s the Cost of YourPro Underfloor Heating Engineer’s Service in Dublin?

Depending on the system you choose, costs can range between €27 to €50 per metre. This will include screeding for the wet system, which is generally more expensive.  This doesn’t include the boiler, heat pump or cylinder, which will add to your cost.

Here at YourPro, we will give you a list of our expert underfloor heating engineers so that you can choose the one that suits your needs and budget. You can select any of our experts with full knowledge that the underfloor heating service they will provide is completed to a high quality standard. We ensure that our heating repairs are kept as low as possible while still providing you with high quality service; however, this can be impacted by several factors such as date, time, and the service required.



 

What Areas do YourPro Contractors Service?

YourPro has you covered with underfloor heating engineers located throughout Dublin. You can book any underfloor heating services, whether you’re in Castleknock, Malahide or The Docklands. Our expert underfloor heating engineers will arrive on time with all of the tools needed to complete the task at hand. Here at YourPro, we strive to help you find the right person for the right job so that you can relax. 



 

Which Floor Finishes Work Best with Underfloor Heating Systems?

The best flooring to use with underfloor heating is stone, ceramic or porcelain tiling. These floors absorb and radiate heat more efficiently than most other finishes used in our homes. 

Timber floors need to be checked first, as they can buckle or crack from high temperatures.  Wood can also reduce the efficiency of underfloor heating if it’s too thick. However, thinner laminate or engineered wooden boards have little effect on the heat output.

Carpets aren’t recommended because they reduce the efficiency of your system; however, some carpets are compatible with underfloor heating systems. You’d need to follow up with the manufacturers if you intend to use carpeting.
