Tilney Street, London
Located on one of central London’s premier streets, this Grade I listed residential building has been undergoing extensive renovations to modernise it for its new occupants. Warmup underfloor heating was specified by the architects to bring an ‘invisible’ and energy-efficient heating solution across all three floors of the property. Due to the historic nature of the building, minimal interventions to the existing structure were required so a heating system that could be easily installed was needed.
A hybrid heating solution was decided upon as providing the best heating solution throughout the building; with hydronic systems to heat living areas and electric systems to heat the multiple bathrooms.
Initially the Warmup Projects Division considered our Tectora hydronic system as the most appropriate hydronic heater to use, however the floor joists in the property proved to have varying centres, making this system difficult to install. Instead, the Econna heating system was specified as it offered a more suitable installation method; it was easily installed over the existing floor joists with the original timber floor finish reinstated over a 20mm deck on top the heating system.
Our Clypso system was installed in basement of the property, which is ideal for use with floating screeded floors and the StickyMat electric heating mat was fitted within the bathrooms, offering accurate, zone-specific heating control.
A comprehensive hybrid heating solution that fully meets the client’s requirements was installed on all three floors of this landmark London home, providing a lifetime of energy-efficient, radiant warmth.
The Clypso system uses plastic clips to secure the underfloor heating pipe to laminated insulation panels. The panels are constructed from either PIR (polyisocyanurate) or expanded polystyrene insulation with a fabric reinforced foil laminated to their surface. The foil on each panel comes with two flaps, for taping to the adjoining panel, thereby increasing water resistance and separating the insulation layer from the wet screed.
