So if you’re using a boiler, you would be running 200mm pipe centres. If you’re using a heat pump then you would be running 150mm pipe centres, sometimes 100mm centres depending on the project.
• You need to know how far the manifold is going to be away from each loop (room) plus 1 meter to go up the wall to connect to the manifold.
• Thirdly you need to calculate how much pipe you need for the area you require underfloor heating.

✅ 200mm centres you need to take the area and multiply it by 5.

Example:  Area (20m2) x 5 = 100m

✅ 150mm centres you need to take the area and multiply it by 6.6.

Example:  Area (30m2) x 6.6 = 198m

✅ 100mm centres you need to take the area and multiply it by 10.

Example:  Area (45m2) x 10 = 450m

Note: You need to do these calculations plus the distance from the manifold to the room (these are called the tails) plus that meter up the wall and multiply by 2 plus 5% for wastage

Example:  Area (20m2) x 5 = 100m

+ tails (5m) + meter up wall (1m) = 6m

x 2 = 12m

+ 5% = 12.6m

100m + 12.6m = 112.6m

So you would need a 150m pipe coil from us.

We hope this Underfloor Heating Pipe Calculator helped you calculate how much pipe you need for your area.
