Innovative underfloor heating system to reduce energy consumption
Heating and cooling are responsible for half of the energy consumption in the EU, prompting the search for new methods to reduce negative impact on the economy and environment. Underfloor heating systems have emerged as a viable solution. However, their installation and maintenance require demolition works, architectural renovation and high costs. The EU-funded HEATILE project proposes a prefabricated, easy-to-install underfloor heating system, avoiding invasive demolition works, retrofitting expenses and architectural interventions. The system targets architects and contractors since it boosts productivity by reducing considerably the time of installation. It also targets building owners and residents since it can reduce installation costs and energy bills. The HEATILE solution also decreases energy consumption and, as a consequence, reduces carbon emissions.
