Although we’re traditionally known for our expertise with domestic properties, Nu-Heat has been becoming more involved in commercial projects almost by default through customers who already know of our reputation for excellence and want to make use of it. Over the past few years our skills with both underfloor heating and renewable products have been utilized in care homes, social housing, churches and schools.
In order to support the bigger projects that we are being asked to handle, Nu-Heat has set up a specialized Commercial Team. The team has been overseeing design for builds such as Talbot Way in Letchworth, a mixture of private and social housing that is using our integrated underfloor heating, air source heat pumps and solar thermal for the various heating and domestic hot water elements of the development.
Commercial Design offers full system control logic for such systems and heat pump design is carried out to the MCS requirement MIS3005. This ensures that heat pumps are correctly sized and should be able to almost entirely heat a building without electric or other back up, under all but the most extreme conditions.
Nu-Heat has added a very competitively priced, 20mm tubing to its underfloor heating offer, alongside the 14mm we specify for domestic projects. This addition to our range means that we have full capability to design for:
- Non domestic properties
- Multiple dwellings
- Linked and communal heat pumps
For apartments we will continue to specify 14mm, but the supply of 20mm gives us the capability required for larger projects; for example, over the last year we have seen an increase in requests to design and supply underfloor heating for care homes. One of the key benefits of the 20mm tubing is that larger areas can be covered from one manifold and with coils that are up to 200m long, up to 60m² can be covered by each port on the manifold.
As with domestic projects, Nu-Heat provides high quality customized CAD drawings showing all mechanical pipework and valves as well as electrical connections and supplies easy-to- follow installation manuals and manuals tailored to the heat source.
The members of Nu-Heat’s Commercial Team have many years of experience between them of working with Nu-Heat products and helping installers to achieve the most practical and energy-efficient systems possible. Your initial enquiry might be taken by Senior Account Manager Andrew Butt or Account Managers Gary Dommett and Ian Sykes. Once your project is confirmed, you will speak to one of our Commercial Project Engineers.
The team looks forward to quoting for your next commercial project!
