Heating System

The water capillary mat system can be used for:

  • underfloor heating;
  • heating and cooling, if the system is installed in the ceiling or walls.

The ceiling is the largest free space in the room, thus it is recommended to mount the system on the ceiling, supplementing it with installation on the walls or floor, if it is necessary to provide more heating or cooling capacity.

Benefits of the Hydrokapillare heating system

Low temperature heating system

sufficient flow temperature of +25-30°C, due to the large area coverage with capillary tubes

Choice of energy sources

possible to use with various energy sources - central heating, gas boiler, pellet boiler, heat pump, etc.

Reduced circulation of dust, viruses and bacteria in the room

significantly reduced circulation of dust, viruses and bacteria together with the air flow, which is especially important to limit the spread of COVID-19

Comfort level

does not cause dry air and creates a pleasant indoor climate

Cost savings

excellent cost savings combined with various types of heat pumps

Finishing material savings

requires less dry concrete (Estrich) and other levelling finishing materials for underfloor heating

Extensive installation options

can be installed on the ceiling or walls and in combination with a room cooling system

Reduction of CO2 emissions

According to a report by an independent expert in the field of energy-efficiency, SIA "Ekodoma", based on the characteristics of the system, the amount of CO2 generated  per year by the Hydrokapillare system is 3.25 kg CO2/m2 less than that generated by classic under-floor heating system and 5.9 kg CO2/m2 less than the radiator system.

Energy source

The water capillary mat system can be connected to various sources of heat/cold supply.

System efficiency

When calculating the required heating and cooling capacity in a room, the thermal conductivity of the chosen finishing material must be taken into account - the higher it is, the higher the efficiency of the heating / cooling system will be.

In the case of capillary heating, a person feels a temperature of 2-3 degrees higher than the air temperature in the room.

Comparison of the Hydrokapillare heating system with other underfloor heating systems

To ensure even heating of the floor surface:

Flow temperature: +35-40°C
Pipes: 17 x 2,0 mm
Distance between pipes: 150 mm
Dry concrete (Estrich) layer: min. 60 mm

Conventional underfloor heating system

Flow temperature: +25-30°C
Capillary tubes: 4.3 x 0.8 mm
Distance between capillaries: 30 mm
Dry concrete (Estrich) layer: min. 20 mm
