Difference between water floor heating,Electric floor heating and thermodynamic panel system

Three are three kinds of heating products on the market – water floor heating,Electric floor heating and thermodynamic panel system.They have similiar performance, similiar operating results on operating cost.But today, let us take a look at the differences between them.

Water ground heating.

Composition of the water heating water heating: boiler, water collector, ground coil, DPM, thermostat (if set to adjust the water temperature may not fit), and some elbows and other fittings. Water heating can only get positive results, there must be combined in three ways to achieve best heating effect. First is the tubing, it will directly affect the service life of floor heating. Second, insulation, it relates to the latter part of the operation cost and load problems on the ground. Last is the concrete bedding, which is proportional to the thermal stability and load capacity on the ground.


Cheap  initial investment capital. Cement has played a very positive role as regenerative, good thermal stability, slow warming the room evenly no discomfort on the human body. Can also provide domestic hot water.


high heat will occupy a certain layer of cement, construction take up to a week or so. According to different water quality around the need for periodic cleaning. The core components of high failure rate of water warm more trouble to maintain. Different gas policies on floor heating will produce different effects, such as prices or limit. Most important of all, water main along with the aging to release toxic substances harmful to human.


Take 100 square meters of a room as an example, converts the heat required to power =70W/O per square metre. 100 square meters of a room requires heat unit time is: 70*100=7000W. Room a month must exhaust heat of 100O is: 7000*30*24*60*60=18144X1000kJ. Heating consumes natural gas are: 18144*1000/8500/4.184=510.2Nm, taking into account the wall-hung boiler combustion efficiency, usually imports most of the thermal efficiency of 92%, the actual consumption of natural gas is: 510.2/0.92=554.6Nm, using wall-mounted gas boiler heating heating and operating costs of one month is: 554.6*2.1=1164.5.

Electric floor heating

Electric floor heating with electric heating film in the market, heating cables, carbon fiber and carbon SI four. Can do this individually controlled in each room, as each room is separate from the power distribution box lead, controlled by a thermostat in each room individually, one room, simply open the room, other rooms are not affected, like control lamps in each room is as simple as truly independent and not lead to energy waste, play the role of energy conservation.


It can be dry-paving does not occupy a high, quick-and-easy 1-2 days to completion of construction. Heat storage floor heating can be done with open-free, suitable for small-sized heating. Separate thermostats can be independently controlled to meet different needs of different rooms casual top. Easy maintenance low maintenance rates.


It require  high installation costs, you need to separate circuits, power consumption. Radiation generated by the runtime has an effect on the human body, especially the children the elderly and pregnant women. Dust can affect the respiratory system.


Let`s assume that per square metre is now taking 120W power, working 12 hours a day computing. (1 degree =1000W · h) = power consumption per square meter per day (120W *12h)/1000=1.44. 100 square metres of floor heating power consumption = 1.44 degrees *100=144 degrees a day, per unit calculated according to 0.5 Yuan a month to warm the cost *0.5*30=2160 = 144 degrees.

Thermodynamic panel system Heaing System

thermodynamic panel system without water heating solar monitor water heating of poly-free collector plate, host, and copper tube. Combining the advantages of water warm floor heating, removing their drawbacks.

Advantages :

As copper pipes has long environmental health,so it do not release toxic substances. Circuit without water, without cleaning the pipe, duct embolization will not occur. Absorb energy from the environment, no gas, no power-assisted, energy saving and environmental protection. Wet paving, concrete heat storage floor, warming the room slowly stabilize the human body feels comfortable every day simply supplement the heat loss will be able to meet demand for heating. Disposable heat to maximize energy efficiency, maximize the energy efficiency to save money, is a leader in solar heating, adapted to low-temperature-20 ℃, truly energy-efficient products that can run north of the Yangtze River.

Disadvantages :

It has high occupancy levels, demanding of the construction process, copper tubes welded and unstable paomaodilou behavior can occur, so you need to choose a professional construction team. Condensation forms when the system is running, good drainage to prevent impact downstairs neighbor.


It is based on national standards for residential heating load for 60-80 W/O. water floor heating,Electric floor heating and thermodynamic panel system design 70W/O, running 12 hours a day, other conditions as above, run EER 1:3 the worst condition. Daily electricity consumption of =70W*12h/1000/3=0.28-per square metre. Monthly fee = 0.28 degrees *70*30*0.5 = 294 Yuan. To sum up, we know these products are on a completely different level of products, not only the practical application of concepts, technology, and security also varied greatly. Hetero poly-State health, energy conservation, environmental protection and peace of mind to save it is reaches a height of less than other heating products.
