If you are considering UFH, or underfloor heating, it is important to understand how the system works. UFH circulates warm water through plastic pipes under the floor that heat up the floors and allow for radiant heat throughout the living area. UFH is also very energy efficient compared to other systems such as radiators.

The sizing of the piping is determined by how much heat you need to transfer from your heater or boiler. The diameter of the pipe directly impacts the volume of hot water that can be delivered in a given time (flow rate) which determines the heat output. A larger diameter tube can deliver a higher flow rate and therefore, provide more heat per square foot than a smaller tube with the same overall length.

When selecting a size of pipe, it is important to consider if you will be using aluminum plates in your system. Adding these plates allows the hot water to transfer heat more efficiently since they act as a thermal conductor, helping to raise your heating system efficiency.

Using the right pipe size is critical to ensure that your system will be properly sized for your project and will operate at peak performance. You can use our calculator to help determine what size of pipe you will need in your project.
