What to expect when you meet us at a show

Visiting us at a show is a great opportunity to get face-to-face advice on the underfloor heating (UFH) and renewable options for a project.

To make the most of the journey there are a few things worth bringing along with you – a set of plans and a notepad to jot down top tips from the seminar sessions are a good idea. But, what can you expect from the Nu-Heat show stand and team?

We tend to have a team of 4-6 of our most experienced staff on our show stand. They are all knowledgeable in UFH and renewables and can help any type of customer, whether an installer, self-builder or contractor – their aim is to offer the right solution.

Nu-Heat stand

The Nu-Heat stand features example floor constructions to touch and feel, a demo heat pump, heated floor coverings and working thermostats as well as interactive tablets to further browse our information.

It’s a good idea to bring a set of project plans or working drawings as our team can make a copy and send it straight to our estimating department so that we can provide a quote within just 72 hours.

Plans, information on the insulation levels of a property and the intended heat source are extremely important – they help us to design and supply an efficient heating system that performs and we will only ever recommend one of our systems if we are certain it is right for the property.

You can also catch us in the Seminar Theatres where we give informative and educational presentations on the heating market, underfloor heating and renewables, followed by a Q&A session.

Top tips:

  • Bring a set of plans – to help us specify and quote
  • Bring a sturdy bag for all the brochures you’ll pick up
  • Take a notepad to jot down handy tips and ideas
  • Take pictures of specific products
  • Plan your day based on who you want to see
  • Join our mailing list to receive emails offering free tickets

Nu-Heat will be attending a number of shows and exhibitions this year, and you can visit us for free. Keep up to date with our upcoming events on the Nu-Heat website.

Hygge, your home and underfloor heating

Heard everyone talking about hygge, the latest lifestyle trend?

Create comforting hygge home

What is hygge?

Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) is an abstract term that is all about creating and enjoying a cosy environment. An integral part of Danish life, hygge focuses on making the most of life’s simple pleasures.

Hygge in your home

Anyone can embrace and enjoy hygge in their home – it’s all about you and your style.

Here are three ideas to help you create a comforting, hygge home:

  1. Get cosy

    You can’t beat coming back to a cosy home. Widely adopted in Nordic countries, warm water underfloor heating provides a gentle, radiant warmth to hundreds of thousands of homes. Easily fitted in both new and existing properties, underfloor heating ensures every part of your home is heated evenly – no more cold spots or draughts. This type of heating system also transforms the feeling of your floor coverings. Once you’ve experienced the feeling of warm tiles underfoot, the slippers will go in the bin!For that extra-cosy living space without the added cost of a log burner, you can create a faux fireplace, stacking it with firewood, various candles or jars full of fairy lights.

  2. Think about lighting

    Lighting can make a huge difference to the ambience of a room. Create a little snug by adding a freestanding lamp to a dark corner, or change the atmosphere by fitting a dimmer switch to your main living room light. Candles, a must-have for hygge, are also a great way to create an intimate and relaxing space.

  3. Add some texture

    Soft furnishings such as knitted throws, cushions and heavy winter curtains can help to give a real homely feel. You can even get creative and take some time out to make your own home accessories.

Above all else, it’s important to remember that a hygge home is made to be shared with friends and family. So get your favourite cookbook out, turn off the TV and invite your nearest and dearest over to enjoy the beautiful space you have created.
