How better to make a warm floor under the linoleum on the wooden floor
The installation of electrical floor heating under the linoleum must be taken very seriously. The fact that this floor covering has a sufficiently low thermal conductivity, which greatly reduces the heating effect. For this reason it is necessary to choose types of linoleum with a thickness that provides sufficient capacity for thermal radiation. It should be understood that the coating is too thin it will be bad to hide all the irregularities of the floor base relief. Especially if placed under the warm linoleum on the floor wooden floor.
The circuit arrangement of floor heating using the heating cable
In addition, any linoleum under strong heating is able to produce harmful volatile substances which does not use as heating elements special cables. The temperature at which the device acts on the surface linoleum must not exceed 30 degrees. In this connection for a floor heating installation, where you plan to lay linoleum, it's best to use a heating film with infrared elements. It is not heated to high temperatures, but gives sufficient heat to create the effect of a linoleum floor heating. Reviews of it is dominated by the positive. Furthermore, the device consumes much less power.
Electric Infrared Heated floor in the living room
Linoleum is a very elastic material. This makes the approach to the selection of the underlying sub-floor very carefully. The best substrate for linoleum - is the concrete screed, because it can be aligned almost perfectly. These same qualities have Self-leveling floors. But what if the floor is wood? If in a city apartment it can be removed and pour the concrete, then in a country house to make it not so easy. Sometimes you have to put the right cover on the wooden floor. A warm floor under the linoleum in this case, put a little more complicated.
Equipping Heated floor, linoleum should be chosen medium or small thickness
Infrared film floor beneath linoleum: features and benefits
Infrared floor beneath linoleum is a film which is wound into rolls. Inside the film mounted infrared elements which connect the electrical power emit infrared rays. They are not visible to the human eye, and skin are felt as heat. Thus excessive heating does not occur. Infrared rays can heat the surrounding objects, including linoleum, which itself will give off heat to the environment, filling them to the room.
The operating principle of infrared heat-insulated floor
this type of underfloor heating It offers significant advantages to be selected for mounting on the wooden covering:
- it is very simple and easy to install;
- due to lack of strong heating has high fire safety;
- suitable for installation under any type of linoleum;
- It has a small thickness (3 mm + 0.4 mm substrate film coating);
- very strong coating film with copper electrodes and carboxylic emitters disposed perpendicularly to each other. The whole construction is laminated with a film of polymeric material. When mounting the items are not damaged.
Laying of heating film roll in the room
Useful advice! Radiant floors have a maximum power of 220 W / m², which is too much for linoleum. Therefore, you need to buy those that give no more than 150 W / m². If you purchased more powerful electric warm floor under the linoleum, the floor can become very hot. To limit the power you need to set the thermostat on the heating is not above 30 ° C.
The circuit arrangement of floor heating
As lay linoleum on wooden floor using infrared elements
Let us consider in detail how to lay linoleum on the wooden floor, where we want to arrange heating. For this to work, we need:
- roll infrared floor in an amount necessary to cover the areas that we want to warm;
- for each film strip must prepare two clips - a clip, which is fixed contacts;
- each room one at a time thermostat;
- material with a high coefficient teplootrazheniya. Suitable izolon coated with a dielectric film;
- polyethylene film;
- electrically copper;
- sided adhesive tape.
Film warm floor is sold in rolls
Furthermore, useful knife furniture stapler, adhesive and insulating mastic. Heated floor to stow under linoleum, wooden floor on placed izolon reflecting surface upwardly. He stretches across the area of the room and attached a stapler for furniture. The joints between the sheets are sealed with tape. infrared film izolona unwind on the surface so that the copper strips on the bottom. If you want to cut the film, then it is done between the sections so as not to damage the graphite strip.
Installing underfloor heating thermostat
Useful advice! Should not put thermal film on the places where there will be heavy furniture. At a distance of 50 cm from the wall it is also not necessary. This measure will significantly save on material.
If in the course of accident damaged insulation film, it is necessary to prokleivat mastic. Thereafter, on one side of each film strip produce bituminous mastic isolation copper electrodes. Other side bands are connected in parallel by means of clips. The first contact of each clamp is placed inside the film on the surface of the electrode, and the second above it. The clamp is compressed with the electrode using pliers to ensure contact reliability and durability.
Installation of infrared heat-insulated floor
Then all of the bands under warm electric floor linoleum adhesive tape bonded to each other. The bare ends of the insulation from electric wires are inserted into the terminals. Compress them using pliers and then isolate the place of contact and clamp the imaging film together with the stripped part of the wire. Contact of silver extending along the edge band is completely isolated.
The structure of the heating film
Setting the thermostat to infrared floor
By any of the strips of mastic adhered via sensor. It is attached to the carbon-fiber thermocouple. The wire from the output it to the nearest wall. In the place where the sensor is attached, and, where the wires are cut out grooves and recesses in izolona. This is necessary in order to linoleum then it was flat to it lacking bumps. The thermostat is attached to the wall, and according to the instructions to connect to it the electrical wires.
Various sizes infrared film rolls
Electrical protection to be effective for a system with a capacity above 2 kW is used a separate machine. The value of the thermostat is set at 30 ° C. Turn the system on the network, check the touch operation of each band. Then diagonally glued tape having a coating of the foil and is attached to one end of the wire grounding.
To securely arrange a warm floor under the linoleum on the wooden floor is laid on top of the fuser polyethylene, which is attached with screws or plywood sheets OSB. It should be done very carefully, as there is a likelihood of damage to the electrodes.
Stacking heating film on a wooden floor
Stacking of linoleum
When the performance of floor heating completely scanned, and all the fibers are aligned, you can proceed to laying of the coating. How to lay linoleum on the wooden floor - everyone knows, but it should be borne in mind that before laying it must be spread out around the room and turn on the system of floor heating. This will allow to heat material that is free of violence and equalized.
Connecting film underfloor heating
Useful advice! Before the final mounting of linoleum on the floor should be left for one day in the unwound form. This will allow him ulezhatsya and align.
When everything is ready, linoleum should be cut into strips of desired length and put on the floor around the room. The edges of linoleum fastened plinths. In places where the electrical wires plinth Slots small hole. Some types of material require a sticker. As an adhesive used special mastic. It is applied to a thin veneer layer, after which the linoleum paste, rolling on a flat surface and the adhesive.
Laying linoleum top heating film
Underfloor heating for linoleum, reviews of which there are often positive, put yourself is not difficult. Only need to properly comply with the recommendations and to do everything neatly and efficiently.
