Why combination slab and radiator heating?
Ideal for extensions
It’s simply not practical to install slab heating in a pre-existing home, but if you’re pouring a concrete slab for a new extension it might be something that you would like to include. In these situations, we can lay pipe work into the slab and install panel radiators in the existing part of your home.
Ideal for double storey homes
As its name suggests, slab heating requires a concrete slab – otherwise, there’s nothing to lay the pipe work into. What if you have a double storey home with a concrete slab on the ground floor? In these situations, we can install slab heating downstairs and panel radiators upstairs.
Ideal for split-level homes
When a home is built on a slope, it is often divided into different levels to avoid too much digging. Sometimes, different types of slabs are used in these levels depending on how the house sits. If part of the home is on a concrete slab and part is on stumps, a combination system is ideal.
Different temperatures for different zones
In systems where slab heating and radiators are combined, a partage box is installed underneath the boiler. This allows the water to be directed to either section, as well as enables the possibility for different water temperatures between the various zones.
More about combined slab heating & radiators
The ability to heat only certain areas of your home at any given time, as well as to decide how warm you want them, also means that you have the ability to reduce your system’s running costs.
In the past, those with asthma and allergies have simply had to suffer over the winter. With the addition of slab heating and radiators, however, you can reduce the amount of dust spread throughout your home for some much-needed relief.
These systems are an incredibly safe choice for your home – slab heating is hidden beneath the floor, whilst radiators never grow hot enough to burn or blister the skin. There aren’t any flames or fumes, either.
Areas We Service
Cambro Boilers can provide combined slab heating and radiators to all areas of Melbourne, including: Camberwell, Balwyn, Brighton, Albert Park, South Yarra, Templestowe, Berwick, Malvern, Kew and Mornington.
Can I operate the whole system using the same thermostat?
To ensure maximum efficiency, your home is generally split up into zones that can be heated independently of each other. In a double storey house, for example, there would be one thermostat downstairs and another upstairs.
