Ambiente pipework is guaranteed from product defect for 75 years giving you complete peace of mind.

In almost all cases, yes, it is more efficient – this is because it utilises lower flow temperatures and works by more gentle radiation of heat rather than convection.

Most floor coverings are suitable for use with underfloor heating, however you will need to consider the tog rating of your chosen floor covering – ideally this should be around 1.5 tog, and not exceed 2.5 tog.

Ambiente provides systems to enable you to include UFH into most floor constructions. The most common method is to include the pipework within the floor screed build-up in the initial stage. However we can also cater for joisted, structural, floating, low profile and even wall-heating systems!

Ambiente provides many benefits to installers including product training, dedicated account manager, full technical back-up and even free tools such as pipe de-reelers where relevant. On top of all this, of course we offer a fantastic range of quality products with industry-leading guarantees and all at competitive prices.

Control is a key element of underfloor heating, as it can make all the difference to the efficiency of the system. As UFH takes a longer time than radiators to heat up and cool down, this needs to be taken into account on the programming of the system. Ambiente always recommends the use of a 7-day programmable thermostat, to maximise efficiencies and get the best out of your system. There are also upgrade options to be able to control the system from your smartphone/tablet.

Yes, Ambiente offers a full UFH CAD design service including pipework layouts, heat output calculations and in some instances heat loss calculations. All design work is carried out to relevant standards (in particular BS EN1264) and following CIBSE guidelines.

Ambiente can supply the names of qualified installers in your area, but many plumbers are aux fait with underfloor heating and will be able to install an Ambiente system, with some backup from our technical team.
