Polypipe Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating has become increasingly accessible and is now an affordable way of heating a home, whilst being environmentally friendly at the same time. Underfloor Heating is fast becoming an option for eco-savvy homeowners and renovators.

Underfloor heating ensures an even dispersion of heat across an entire room, with no cold spots or draughts. Family friendly and with no unsightly radiators it’s aesthetically pleasing and a system can be tailor made for any home. Polypipe is a leader in the market and has made underfloor heating accessible to everyone with a variety of options available.

Polypipe Heat Recovery Ventilation

Most of us enjoy taking a long warm shower or relaxing in a bath to ease the stresses and strains of the day. Running a shower and the bath generates moisture, with the average bathroom containing over 600 watts of heat energy. The Polypipe Home Solutions system turns the heat energy in some rooms of the home into heat that can be used across the rest of the house.

It’s a simple process and one that saves money and reduces carbon emissions. Modern buildings lose 25% of heat due to uncontrolled ventilation and air leakage. The Polypipe Heat Recovery system simply warms fresh air drawn into the building with the heat produced from waste stale air in the house. It uses an efficient counter-flow heat exchanger to get rid of the stale air and reduces the need for heating, thus reducing heating bills.

Heat recovery ventilation systems enable homeowners to have fresher, better quality air, greater climate control and improved energy efficiency. As much as 92% of heat energy can be recovered, saving on the energy required for heating a home and reducing household energy bills.

Carrying an Energy Savings Trust Best Practice compliant certificate, Polypipe Heat Recovery Ventilation can help people to achieve higher levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes and the best energy rating levels.

Polypipe Rainwater Harvesting

Polypipe has almost 10 years of experience in Rainwater Harvesting and has developed new systems specifically for the domestic market. The highest consumption of water in a home is flushing a toilet; using rainwater for this purpose can reduce mains water consumption by up to 30%.

Useful for the weekly washing cycle, washing the car and watering the garden, Rainwater Harvesting is effective and offers cost savings, meaning homeowners may actually welcome the odd rain shower!
