The Challenge

The Kite Centre is an assisted living facility in the Hereford countryside that has been undergoing a large-scale renovation of an existing structure; a Warmup energy-efficient underfloor heating system was specified throughout to improve the environment for the staff and residents. The centre featured a variety of room types; bedrooms, shower rooms, living areas and offices with different flooring requirements throughout. Our challenge was to ensure that the floor levels were consistent to allow easy wheelchair access to each room. In each shower room the floor finish had to be sloped towards the drainage area.

The Solution

Due to the large heated floor area of the project – over 200 M/2 – a hydronic floor heater was chosen to provide a consistent level of warmth throughout the centre. Our Total-16 System was installed throughout with our Insulation Boards, as its low-profile 16mm system build-up would not only have a negligible effect on floor levels but would also allow the sloped finish needed in the shower rooms. Warmup’s 4iE Smart WiFi Thermostat was installed for accurate, easy-to-use control of the floor heating system for the end-user and with its partnered MyHeating app, the user can manage all heating schedules remotely from their smartphone, tablet and computer.
