Over the years, underfloor heating has become a popular addition for the homeowner looking for both luxury and energy-saving benefits. 

A study from 2018 revealed underfloor heating was third on the list of the top 10 features that millennials wanted in their dream home. It’s also increasingly popular in the construction industry, particularly for projects that involve converting office spaces into residential properties. 

The latest figures show the market for underfloor heating grew by 6% in 2017, with a similar increase predicted for the following year. Energy-efficient insulation materials such as XENERGY Styrofoam have helped drive this growth. 

Inta introduces revolutionary transparent push-fit connector for UFH manifolds

Inta underfloor heating

Leading heating and plumbing products manufacturer Inta has introduced a unique transparent push-fit connector for underfloor heating (UFH) manifolds, which promises to make a complex job much quicker and easier.

Part of the Inta’s brand new ‘PresBloc’ product range, the connector enables installers to be certain that it is properly in place and secure before it is switched on and pressure tested, thus avoiding leaks. Designed as a universal fitting, the connector can be used with any manifold - including polymer, stainless steel and brass.

Inta has also introduced a range of low voltage actuators for UFH manifolds, for which the power consumption is just 1 Watt compared to the industry-standard of 1.5-2 Watt, meaning end users will benefit from lower energy bills.
