Grade 2 listed building in Derbyshire upgrades heating system
A Grade 2 listed building in Derbyshire’s Hope valley has undergone a major upgrade and refurbishment process which saw its entire heating system upgraded and improved, a news report can reveal.
Goosehill Hall has received a new heating system combining ground-source heat pumps and Jaga Strada DBE radiators, which were used in various bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces. Mini Freestanding DBE radiators were chosen to fit into pre-existing alcoves in the ground-floor dining room.
DBE (dynamic boost effect) fan units attached to the radiators’ heat exchangers draw air over the element to increase the efficiency and responsiveness of the heating performance.
DBE is combined with Jaga’s Low-H2O radiators to achieve the required heating output through small, aesthetically accommodating radiators. The low mass and low water content of these heat emitters can reduce energy use by up to 16% compared to traditional steel-panel radiators.
Further savings can be attained by combining such highly efficient radiators with the HeatSave thermostatic radiator valves, the easiest to install and most cost-effective energy-saving measures on the market. They are particularly suitable for retrofitting, since one simply has to remove the existing TRV and replace it with the HeatSave unit.
The wireless thermostatic radiator valves enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve, and, since radiators are individually controlled, home owners are fully capable to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used for longer periods of time (as for example, dining or sitting rooms and kitchens during the night, etc.).
Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.
All in all, the HeatSave TRVs enable users to achieve some pretty impressive savings, as they will help reduce your heating bills by up to 30%, especially when coupled with the HeatingSave Building Energy Management System.
