How to Use Electric Floor Heating to Get the Best Effect?

As people's requirements for the quality of life are getting higher and higher, choosing the best electric floor heating system has become the first choice for more and more people. Floor heating has won the favor of many customers with its advantages of warmth and comfort, simple use and health, but many people still have concerns about the energy consumption of floor heating. How to use floor heating to get the best of both worlds? Lancable has summarized several practical methods for everyone, hoping to be helpful to users with electric floor heating.

1. To do a good job of electric floor heating wall insulation

The energy consumption of floor heating has a lot to do with the insulation status of the wall. If the walls in your home are insulated, the energy consumption will definitely be lower. If you are considering installing floor heating, you should do a good job of thermal insulation during the decoration. Use strategies such as double-layer windows or thermal insulation in the outer wall to improve the thermal insulation performance of the house, which is very important for the energy saving of wifi electric underfloor heating thermostat.

2. Choose electric floor heating floor covering materials with good thermal conductivity

Floor covering materials also have an impact on the power consumption of electric floor heating. We should follow the principle of "thin and not thick, small and not large" when choosing. In addition, when installing electric floor heating, moisture-proof materials should be laid. The thickness of the moisture-proof materials will also directly affect the power consumption. When the moisture-proof materials are thicker, the less heat is lost, and the power consumption will naturally be reduced.

3. Reasonable setting of electric floor heating heating temperature

The key to saving energy with electric floor heating is to set the temperature reasonably. If the heating temperature you set is 16~18℃, the actual temperature of the floor heating should be 19~21℃, which is 3℃ higher than the traditional heating method. Don't think that if the set temperature is high, the temperature will rise quickly. The heating time of the room depends on factors such as the indoor and outdoor temperature difference, room area, house insulation and other factors. When these factors are constant, the setting temperature does not affect the room heating time, and the cost will increase by 5% for every 1 ℃ rise. In addition, from the perspective of human feeling, the comfortable temperature of human body should be 18~20℃, so it is better to set the temperature of floor heating at 16~17℃.

4. There should be no cover on the electric floor heating floor and it should be turned on and off when not necessary

If wifi electric underfloor heating thermostat is installed, do not use carpets and legless furniture on the ground, which will block the heat and cause local heating, so that the heat cannot be distributed evenly. This will not only increase heating energy consumption, but also affect the service life of floor heating.

Many users believe that turning off the system when floor heating is not in use will reduce energy consumption. In fact, this habit stems from our understanding of air conditioners and bath heater, while floor heating is just the opposite. Floor heating can reach the set temperature within a period of time when the system is turned on, and the room temperature will not drop immediately when the system is turned off. Turning on and off at all times consumes more power, and it does not achieve the purpose of energy saving at all.

5. Rational use of electric floor heating thermostats and the use of "peak and valley electricity" in electric floor heating

The wifi electric underfloor heating thermostat can realize the independent control of the area, so that the required area can turn on the temperature control system for heating, and the unneeded area can completely stop working. Using the thermostat, you can use the programming mode to control the temperature requirements of different time periods and different room areas, and automatically adjust the room temperature. In less frequently used rooms or when no one is around, you can turn down the temperature to maintain energy-efficient operation, which not only adjusts the comfort level, but also reduces power consumption.

Since electric floor heating has a heat storage function, for areas with peaks and valleys in electricity bills, we can set the temperature of electric floor heating during peak and valley periods through the thermostat, and "cut peaks and fill valleys", so as to achieve the purpose of energy saving.
