Water floor heating is a heating method which uses hot water not higher than 60 C as heating medium and circulates the whole floor in the heating pipe buried in the underground concrete filling layer and radiates through the ground. The main components are: heat source main engine (such as gas boiler), water distributor, geothermal pipe, thermostat, geothermal fittings/modules.
Electric floor heating is to bury heating cables on the floor, use heating cables to heat the floor, and use temperature controller to control room temperature or floor temperature to achieve radiation heating on the ground. It consists of heating cable, heating accessories and thermostat.
Water heating and electric heating can be compared from the following aspects:
1. Initial installation cost
Water floor heating: Each household needs a heat source host, such as gas boiler can be applied to an area of 90-120 square meters, if the cost conversion, installation of 120 square meters is more cost-effective than installation of 90 meters, it is recommended to install pre-water filter.
Electric heating: No mainframe is needed. Each room is installed independently. Different brands and materials can be installed separately according to different requirements.
2. Control mode
The manifold is usually placed in the kitchen or bathroom, such as opening the main bedroom, combining the main bedroom with the main guard in the kitchen main bedroom in the restaurant and other pipelines. When the local open, there is a waste of energy. In an article on water and floor heating, the whole house is usually required to open.
Electric floor heating is controlled independently according to the room, such as the main bedroom opening and closing, then only the main bedroom area heating, each room can also adjust its own temperature, suitable for local opening and closing.
3. Monthly expenses
Water heating, sharing a boiler, can not be truly independent control, there is a minimum combustion value, the bottom of the boiler combustion value can use about 60 square meters, energy consumption in 60 square meters is the same, even if there is only one room 20 square meters, boiler natural gas consumption 60 square meters per hour is the same, according to bright fire customers. Return visit, Guangxi Guilin area of 100, room about 2000 yuan per month. After introducing the price of step gasoline, it is estimated that it will cost about 2500 yuan per month.
Electric heating: Electric heating is the independent use of each room, temperature control alone, according to the customer's use of bright fire floor heating, if not permanent people's room do not open, when needed, Guilin area of Guangxi 100 square meters of space calculation, according to step electricity prices, about 1500 yuan a month.
