The search for sustainable solutions that help to drive forward the Net Zero Carbon future of heating systems here in the UK has moved on to the use of sustainable water treatment products that will ensure clean water flowing through traditional and renewable heating systems as well as offering a raft of other benefits that will help specifiers, installers and householders.

The cost of living and energy costs are still biting deep for households at risk of fuel poverty. When income is limited, the decision to switch off the heating is often made to ensure that there is food on the table. With less government support this year, and standing charges on the rise, this dilemma is damaging not just to the physical wellbeing of each member of the household, but also to their mental wellbeing too.
Social housing providers know the importance of clean circulating water in heating systems in their homes and have worked with liquid water treatment products for decades to achieve this. But with the release of new solid chemicals from DosaFil they have a far more environmentally friendly, easier to install and top up and easier to transport option.
The Radfan Extra Boost is the latest model in the Radfan range, but designed with air/ground source heat pump system applications in mind.
Just as the Classic Radfan, this model helps make residents feel warmer more quickly so potentially reducing their energy bills, and reduces the conditions which promote the growth of mould.
Designed to prevent the need for the installation of both a tundish and a dry trap, whilst still preventing smells and odours passing through.
Altecnic, the leading supplier of hydronic solutions and part of the Caleffi Group, have launched a new Dry Trap Tundish. Unlike any other tundish on the market, the Altecnic Dry Trap Tundish boasts a patented, anti-splash design with a transparent chamber that provides a visual indicator for discharge and is fully compliant with G3 building regulations.
The rise and rise of the heat pump is seeing the need for larger and higher capacity radiators. Stelrad has responded to these needs by broadening its already massive range of sizes and shapes for its most popular radiators and the introduction of a wider range of vertical radiators. It is also meeting the enhanced need for its K3 radiators – with three panels and three fins offering 50% more heating capacity from a radiator with the same footprint as a K2 format radiator for example.
LG Electronics has recently achieved the Quiet Mark accreditation for its leading air to water heat pump – the Therma V Monobloc ‘S’. LG has been awarded the Quiet Mark for a wide range of more than 100 of its home appliances – washing machines and the like - but this is the first Air Solutions product to receive the accolade and now joins the esteemed line up of Quiet Mark certified products available from LG.
