Nu-Heat’s underfloor heating (UFH) design and supply expertise continues to underpin the company’s leading role in the UK UFH market. Additionally, over the last few years Nu-Heat has invested in the development of skills in the design of single and integrated systems using renewable products including heat pumps, solar thermal, photovoltaic and rainwater harvesting.
With successful systems already provided for national house-builders and RSLs and new projects underway for 2011, Nu-Heat is pleased to offer Ecobuild visitors an insight into how these technologies work and also how their integration can contribute towards higher levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
In order to provide a solution to fit any property, Nu-Heat has implemented partnerships with renowned manufacturers Roth for solar collectors and NIBE and Hitachi for provision of a wide range of heat pumps, including Hitachi’s YUTAKI, one of the highest efficiency air source heat pumps (ASHP) currently available, with a potential Coefficient of Performance of over 4.
On show at Ecobuild is Hitachi’s new single fan ASHP, a product that Nu-Heat believes will offer an ideal solution for renewables with relevance to the retrofit market – including social housing and private homes. Although Nu-Heat has supplied the twin fan model for retrofit systems with great success, the single fan facilitates use in smaller properties, fitting nicely under existing window ledges and in more modest gardens.
As the requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes increase there is a greater need for renewable technologies to satisfy energy requirements. Specification standards for new-build homes have significantly changed in recent years, allowing renewable technologies including heat pumps and solar panels together with underfloor heating to make a positive impact on highly insulated properties.
