Heating and Ventilation

underfloor heating

Supporting the industry to reach its sustainability goals, WMS underfloor heating has released new findings which reveal that underfloor heating systems are 93% less carbon intensive than radiators.

This staggering statistic has been calculated by considering a variety of figures, including product lifecycle, material volume and the carbon impact to manufacture each product, which highlight that plastic underfloor heating pipe is significantly better from a carbon point of view to produce when compared with steel.
The foundation of this calculation is Government published statistics relating to the carbon impact of manufacturing building materials. The report[1] states that the manufacture of iron and steel products have a 7.1 MTCO2e (metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent), compared with plastic products which have a 3 MTCO2e - 58% less than iron and steel.

Titon’s FireSafe® Air Brick has recently been installed at the new Hayes Village development in West London.
Hayes Village, situated at Nestles Avenue, Hayes in Middlesex, is a brand new development from Barratt London offering 1,473 new homes.  Built on the former Nestle Factory, the area is undergoing signification regeneration.



With the topic of air quality gaining in importance for end users and landlords, SIEGENIA’s compact single room heat recovery ventilation unit can now provide an even healthier indoor environment as it is available with CO2 regulation on request.

Ventilation remains an ongoing challenge not just for private developers and self-builders, but also for those of us undertaking any refurbishment works on properties. With increasing airtightness standards in the UK for new build homes and the focus on procuring the most energy efficient products, we end up creating nothing more than highly efficient sealed boxes. This may sound ideal (and from an energy conservation point of view it is) but without a properly considered holistic ventilation strategy, poor indoor air quality and issues of condensation and mould will ensue and become a recurrent problem for housing managers and landlords.  


The new Logic2 range has launched with a range of new features and components that:

1. Make Logic2 even easier for your engineers to install and service

2. Reduce the number of unnecessary engineer call outs

heat pumps

In conjunction with East Cambridgeshire District Council, Palace Green Homes is in the final phase of a new 54-home residential development in the village of Haddenham, Cambridgeshire, with 19 affordable housing properties for the Haddenham Community Land Trust (CLT). The Team at Panasonic and Specialist heating and cooling distributor Oceanair, worked with CG Plumbing to provide each property with sustainable heating thanks to Panasonic’s Aquarea Mono-bloc air to water heat pumps which supply heating and domestic hot water to each home.


Amidst growing debate around how we tackle the climate challenge, a unique partnership between Vaillant and Gasway has demonstrated the importance of innovation and collaboration in helping the industry achieve its carbon neutral future.

Founded in 1982, Gasway is the largest heating company in East Anglia with a proven track record, delivering excellence in heating systems including domestic gas, renewables and commercial heating.

In 2016 the business was acquired by Flagship Group, a housing association with over 32,000 homes in the region, supporting its vision of solving the housing crisis in the East of England.

With this number of homes, it is vital to have a leading heating manufacturer on board to meet the full heating specification requirements of the homes, while also enabling Gasway to continue to serve the private market.


With consumer demand for heat pumps at an all-time high, Panasonic has partnered with Drayton by Schneider Electric to offer its Wiser room-by-room heating control system. Seamlessly integrating with Panasonic Aquarea Air Source Heat Pumps and the Aquarea Smart Cloud and Service Cloud apps, the Wiser system provides an additional element of energy control and simple home automation.
