Introducing Apple HomeKit

With as many as 66% of UK consumers considering smart homes an appealing concept*, homeowners are increasingly looking to manufacturers and suppliers for new ways to control – and connect – their household gadgets and devices.

Nu-Heat’s neoHub+ works with Apple HomeKit

We are pleased to announce that you can now use Apple HomeKit home automation technology to control your Nu-Heat underfloor heating system, when you choose any neoHub+ smart control package.

What is Apple HomeKit?

Apple HomeKit technology provides an easy, secure way to control your home’s lights, doors, thermostats and more from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

There are no contracts or subscription fees, and you can easily configure HomeKit control of your Nu-Heat underfloor heating in a few simple steps.

How does it work?

Nu-Heat’s neoHub+ responds to Siri and the Apple iOS10 Home app, giving you the option to set and adjust heating temperatures via the Apple Home app or Siri voice control. You can also set HomeKit automations and remotely control your heating settings in conjunction with any other HomeKit compatible products you may have in your home.

How do I get Apple HomeKit?

Apple HomeKit functionality is available with any Nu-Heat underfloor heating system with a neoHub+, which now comes as standard with any of our smart packages. Speak with one of our underfloor heating experts on 01404 549770 to find out which heating system and smart package is right for you.

Nu-Heat showcases acoustic UFH solution, AcoustiPanel™14 at Ecobuild

AP14

AP14 partners

Nu-Heat’s new acoustic underfloor heating (UFH) solution, produced in partnership with Knauf and Thermal Economics, will be showcased at EcoBuild this year. AcoustiPanel™14 comprises a pre-routed gypsum board over a high performance IsoRubber-UFH-NH base, into which Nu-Heat’s 14mm Fastflo™ tube is neatly installed.

When installed as part of an acoustic floor cassette, AcoustiPanel™14 with 5mm IsoRubber-UFH-NH has been proven to reduce airborne and impact sound transmission through suspended timber floors, assisting in exceeding Part E compliance standards. The system is suitable for new-build and renovation apartments where an efficient and discreet underfloor heating solution is required as part of an acoustically robust system.

The combination of tongue and groove panels and self-levelling skim offers high thermal conductivity, allowing quick transfer of heat into the room as well as an extremely stable and level floor.

As a low profile, acoustic solution with outstanding performance AcoustiPanel™14 provides a sustainable, high quality, fit-and-finished floor section. Installation of the routed panel is simple and similar to that of a typical tongue and groove deck, and the thin skim coat dries overnight with no impact on the site programme.

This tailor-made acoustic UFH system offers:

  • Just 31mm height build-up
  • Less thermal mass – between 36.2-44.9kg/m2 (depending on panel configuration) – compared with 50mm liquid screed at 77.4kg/ m2 and 65mm sand and cement at 120.4kg/ m2
  • Simple installation directly over a level screed section or structural working deck
  • No mechanical fixings required, meaning quick installation and fewer materials
  • A panel with interlocking edges – results in a solid, flat surface
  • Single manifold, up to 100m2 – for a quick installation, using less material and plant space
  • Heating and floor deck in a single solution
  • Recycled gypsum & IsoRubber-UFH-NH content
  • Point load tested to BS EN 6399-1 – high performance figures resulting in minimal floor deflection ideal for high-end stone and ceramic floor finishes
  • Full design indemnity

NEW AcoustiPanel™14
Combined Knauf acoustic floor deck solution with integrated Nu-Heat warm water underfloor heating.

This new acoustic solution from Nu-Heat, produced in partnership with Knauf, comprises a pre-routed gypsum board over a high performance IsoRubber-UFH-NH base, into which Nu-Heat’s 14mm tube is neatly installed.

The combination of tongue and groove panels and a self-levelling skim offer high thermal conductivity allowing a quick transfer of heat into the room and the creation of an extremely stable, monolithic floor finish.

When installed within an acoustic floor cassette, AcoustiPanel™14 exceeds Part E making the solution suitable for new build and renovation apartments, where an efficient and discreet underfloor heating system is required as part of an acoustically robust system that is simple to install.

AcoustiPanel14 UFH

This tailor-made acoustic UFH system offers:

  • Fast heat transfer combined with high performance heat output of up to 96W/m2
  • A low profile UFH solution with outstanding acoustic properties exceeding Part E
  • Minimal height build-up at just 31mm, saving typically 69mm compared to typical acoustic batten solutions
  • A low weight solution compared to liquid screed or a typical sand & cement screed UFH system
  • Ultra-low deflection, monolithic ‘fit and finished’ floor section over IsoRubber-UFH-NH base ideal for large format tiles and luxury floor finishes
  • A sustainable solution, with the gypsum board being made up of a minimum of 60% recycled product and categorised under Knauf Environmental Product Declarations – according to ISO 14025
  • IsoRubber-UFH-NH made with a recycled content in excess of 90% waste rubber, a Global Warming Potential of Zero and an Ozone Depletion Potential of Zero

A straightforward installation

  • Installed directly over a structural working deck – either suspended timber or concrete/screed
  • Fully tailored designs with 6 panel options for optimal heating layouts and pipework back to manifolds
  • Self-levelling skim dries overnight, resulting in reduced site programme
  • Single manifold, up to 160m – for quick installation, using less material
  • Complete mechanical & electrical installation design and AcoustiPanel™ layout drawings, provided by Nu-Heat
  • Floor finishes can be fitted after just 72 hours
