Interior renovation works
February 2005: renovation of the three rooms with the installation of parquet, repair of the paintings and change of the frames and windows.
April 2005: Beginning of development works by destruction of the interior partitions, entrance, living room, dining room, kitchen, cellar, in total a single room of 50 m² for installation of a low temperature low temperature heating floor on solar collectors.
Clearly: total removal of the four radiators of 2000 watts each for heating.
Low temperature hydraulic floor heating
Once all the partitions were knocked down, we installed a heated floor. It is a thin heating floor, special renovation only 1,5 cm thick.
There is no need to cut doors and inertia is low.
Then we laid a tile.
"Collector" floor heating to the garage "boiler room" and garage side.
Second arrival for the PC and collector placed in the bathroom (with the general arrival of water).
Cost of work for partitions and underfloor heating
The total cost of this work is approximately 2000 € for circulator, thermal probe, pipes 8/6 and 14/16 fittings, support and insulation pc and patching. All the labor is obviously "house".
