water floor convectors

In the projects of modern houses and apartments we often meet panoramic windows, windows with high glazing, that offer stunning view. Certainly you do not want to spoil the design solution with conventional radiators. In this case, we offer a water heating convector built into the floor, a modern solution that will allow you to heat your room and at the same time to retain the interior design view.

What does the convector consist of?

The heart of the underfloor convector is a heat exchanger, which is a copper pipe with aluminum finning over which water circulates, in this case a heat carrier. It is very important to pay attention to the quality of the connecting elements. The heat exchanger should look solid and confident. The thickness of the material used is also important. Heat exchangers Hitte received a high evaluation of quality and we as a manufacturer can be proud of this.

 

The convector box is made of stainless or galvanized steel and the whole structure is covered with a decorative grill that can withstand a person's weight of 120 kg.

The Convector is mounted in the floor, in special niches, usually along the high glazing, where there is no possibility to install a radiator.

 

Underfloor convectors are of two types:

 

· With fan.

 

· Without fan.

 

 Underfloor .

More often used for apartments, rooms of a small area as both a main and an additional source of heat.

 

  Underfloor convectors of this type have a fairly simple scheme of operation. A stainless steel box is fitted with a heat exchanger, which is a heating element. There is no fan, which means that the air movement is natural: cold air from the panoramic window is lowered, heated and rises.

 

Underfloor convectors with fan.

  This system differs from the previous one only by the presence of a fan. It has the same design -  a box and a heat exchanger, along the heat exchanger there is a tangential fan, which operates from 24 Volts, which means economical consumption of electricity in operation. Also we want to note that the fans of Hitte have a low noise level, which is undoubtedly important for the customer in choosing. The work of the convector is set and controlled with forced convection by a room thermostat. Fans force air into the heat exchanger and the convection rate, which means that the heat output, in comparison with the natural one, increases by several tens of times. This is a key argument in favor of buying convector for premises with large areas and panoramic windows.

 

Underfloor convectors do not require special care and maintenance, but simply involve vacuuming.

 

 In terms of price / quality, Hitte convectors are among the best. We offer systems of underfloor convectors of any complexity in a short time. Such a radiator in the floor will work faultlessly, providing maximum comfort and controlling the temperature in the room, saving electrical and heat energy.
