Underfloor heating design calculations:

The design procedure for under floor heating system is summarized as follows.

1. Calculation of the heat load for each space.

2. Calculation of the heat flux (W/m2 ) by dividing the heat load for the required space by total floor area of the space.

3. Evaluate of the floor surface temperature (Tk).

4. Calculation of required pipes spacing and water temperature with considering the floor temperature and the tiles and floor types (ceramic, mosaic, cement ,oak ,….etc).

5. Limitation of the spaces between the pipes that will give the required floor temperature at selected water temperature.

6. Calculation of the reverse heat flow since there is a cold surface on the other side of the heating pipes.

7. Calculation of the total heat load to be emitted by the pipes (Qe).

8. Calculate of the mass flow rate of water for each loop. 

9. Selection of pipe diameter with considering the flow velocity.

10. Calculation of pressure drop for the longest pipe loop and the pressure drop due to the bending.

11. The pump of the under-floor heating system is selected from the manufacturer catalogues by using the total pressure drop of the longest pipe loop and the total water flow rate for all loops.

12. Balancing the pressure drop for all pipe loops such that each pipe loop will have the same total pressure drop of that of the longest pipe loop. 

13. Heat pump selection by using the total Qe for all loops and domestic hot water.
