How to calculate needed quantity of kits for all rooms in my apartment?
— There are 7 different kits, which differ in terms of capacity and heating area (for the apartment with the area size from 7m2 to 43m2). Each kit is equipped with its own thermostat. It is most conveniently when there is a possibility to regulate the temperature in each room separately, in this case it is necessary to mount a separate kit in each room (For example, kit No. 5 is suitable for a separate bedroom with 15 m2 area size). A separate thermostat will allow you, for example, to turn off the heating or to significantly reduce the temperature in the room or adjust the heating program.
In case if you have several open or walk-through rooms (for example, an entrance hall, corridor, living room – a total area of 38 m2), then it will be more cost – efficient for you to put one kit No. 2 with single thermostat for all three rooms.
Choose the right quantity of kits depending on your heating areas and needs.
Will I succeed to install the Salmerk heating system with no outside help?
— Yes, the system can be installed without outside help; the layout scheme of the heating tape is very simple. We have prepared for you the detailed description, with all technical features and instructions for installation under various floor coverings, as well as the connection procedure. The instruction is attached to each kit of Salmerk underfloor heating system in the original package.
Is the underfloor heating system not harmful for human health?
—The Salmerk underfloor heating system is absolutely harmless, and in fact it is even useful, because it protects you from cold, which basically starts from freezing feet.
It is considered that excessively high temperature of the underfloor heating is really has a negative effect on veins and blood circulatory system wealth. The floor temperature more than 34°C is already insufficient for people when standing on the floor for a long time. This is a serious problem of electric-powered floors with the high-temperature, operating as a rule under 220v voltage.
The Salmerk underfloor heating system operates at low temperatures of 28 – 30°C. The temperature of floor covering generally does not exceed 26°C and it is an absolutely comfortable and favorable temperature even for small children. In addition, the operating voltage of the Salmerk system is only 5 – 42 Volts, which is absolutely safe for using.
Under which type of floor covering the Salmerk aluminium underfloor heating system can be applied?
—Salmerk aluminium underfloor heating system can be applied both for new buildings and for reconstructed premises.
The heating element of the system is a flexible and strong aluminum tape, with the thickness of only 0.25 mm, and this allows to install it under concrete screed, as well as under any type of floor covering, for example: under ceramic tiles, laminate, parquet, linoleum or carpet.
The Salmerk heating system is installed even on walls or ceiling. The principle of laying the tape on the wall is the same as under the floor, following that a layer of plaster is applied on the wall through the facade fiber optic mesh and your wall or ceiling heating is ready. The only difference from the floor version is that in the case of underfloor installation you get a really warm floor and maximally efficient heat distribution. Perhaps, in the case of wall mounting options, you will have to cover a slightly larger area to compensate the heat loss.
