This case study is aimed at transient simulation of floor heating systems. There is comparison of surface floor temperatures and heat fluxes changes of different systems over time. The first studied system is a dry floor heating system which consists of system boards made from insulation material, spreader plates, and it is covered by cement fiber boards. The second examined system is heavy wet concrete floor heating system whose heating power is set identically as heating power of dry floor heating system. Mean temperature of heating water is investigated. All simulations, both time steady-state and transient, are performed in software CalA. Reduction of duration and computational performance of simulation is achieved by creation of a surrogate model. The surrogate model evinces identical surface temperatures and heat fluxes. Total number of computational grid is reduced and therefore lower number of equations is solved. Results show that dry floor heating system has faster response than concreate floor heating system. It is caused by lower weight and lower thermal capacity of this system.
