Solid Fuel and Underfloor heating

People say UFH will not work properly on an open vented system. Well Oxyvent has changed that. Oxyvent’s open vented system will work as good as a pressurized with UFH. Bringing flow rates up from 1.5 to 3.5 LPM. Reducing maintenance by having a completely air free system, meaning no more flushing air out of the UFH loops.

As the system is fed from the tank in the attic, there is no pressure on the UFH loops. The solid fuel stove and the UFH system both sharing the same water, similar to an Oil or Gas boiler with UFH.

Oxyvent temperature controller

Oxyvent unique design has two separate temperature controllers to regulators the water temperature of the Stove. One regulates the water leaving the stove set at 60°C whilst the other regulates the water coming back to the Stove set at 50°C. The water temperature in the stove remains between 50°C and 60°C at all times. The benefits are enormous as it outperforms all others by physically maintaining a balanced temperature within the stove.

As solid fuel operates differently to Oil or Gas, the rate of heat generated can be slow. The slower output heat from the stove retains the temperature of the floors steady and if needed boosting with oil or gas the floor temperatures will rise rapidly.

As solid fuel can operate with an oil/gas boiler collectively or independently they complement each other greatly. Solid fuel is very effective and efficient with the lower operating temperatures of underfloor heating. Oxyvent is the only system that operate solid fuel with an oil or gas boiler on an open vented system.

If you are experiencing any issues with your stove, then you need an Oxyvent System. You can contact us to discuss any concerns you may have.

Oxyvent Wiring Board

Oxyvent has designed a unique wiring board specifically suited to solid fuel system.

  • Unique safety feature that automatically over rides room stats while solid fuel is operating
  • Separate connections for each component for easy tractability
  • Light come on for the zone that is operating
  • 3 Heating zones and hot water zone

What our customers have to say

  • “Just a quick line to compliment you on a job well done. Irish people in general are quick to find faults, but slow to praise when things go well. Now that we are well into Winter and having lived through winters since 1986 with my heating system that was installed back then, my only regret is that I did not contact you earlier to install the Oxyvent Tank. Since its installation the heating is superb, gone are the cold spots on the radiators, gone also is the need to vent the radiators upstairs on a weekly basis, this need has been eliminated altogether. My fuel bill has reduced considerably and the need to increase the size of my boiler has also been eliminated.

    I have always admired those who have excelled in their respective professions and it is in this regard that I can say thanks for a job well done.”

How often were you given the same suggestions to fix radiators in rooms that don’t heat: Check for air in the system, Fit a larger pump, Check the water pressure, Check if the radiator valves are stuck, etc etc

Where Underfloor Heating is installed with a gas or oil boiler, hot and cold patches on the floor are quite common. It can get very uncomfortable when the floor overheats. What can we do about it?

People normally place their hand on the top section of the radiator to find out if their heating is operating properly. This is not the correct way to find out if your radiators are functioning efficiently.
