Discuss New build UFH help and advice in the Water Underfloor Heating Installations area at PlumbersForums.net

Hi all new to the forum, I have recently moved into a new build house with underfloor heating installed throughout the ground floor, 4 zones, kitchen (tiled),lounge (carpet), hallway (tiled), mancave/front room (carpet). It’s an Emmeti system with manual thermostats in each zone.

I turned it on for the first time yesterday as I was bored and it was slightly cooler, I gather to get the best out the system should be on 24/7 when it’s on in anger.
I noticed the carpeted rooms took longer to feel any difference, I appreciate the installer wouldn’t of known I would have this floor covering as I had it fitted after purchasing. I was just wondering what ideal temperature differntial I should be looking at for the flow and return temperatures, I don’t think it’s been balanced properly as all flow rates look to be set the same. I’m assuming if a play with the flow rate I can get the temperature differentials across the flow and return the same for all zones.
I have just been looking at salus auto balancing actuators, are these a worthwhile upgrade, looks relatively simple to install.

Thanks for any help and advice.
