A range of low energy heating and cooling systems designed by REHAU have been supplied to a sustainable homes development in Lighthorne, Warwickshire.
Be Green Systems are working in partnership with Housestyle Countrywide to fit new-build contemporary family homes with ground source energy and REHAU underfloor heating systems.
Housestyle Countrywide are then showcasing systems, alongside the optional REHAU chilled ceilings and MVHR, to buyers in the onsite show home.
A long-term customer of REHAU, Be Green Systems specified REHAU’s RAUVITHERM pre-insulated pipework to connect all of the nine properties to a ground-source energy collected installed under the road.
A heat pump installed in each property generates the low flow and return temperatures required for the REHAU underfloor heating systems. REHAU’s heating and plumbing pipework is also supplying the hot and cold running water.
The show home incorporates REHAU’s CoolBoard chilled ceiling system within the kitchen, living room and master bedroom – it is the first time that REHAU CoolBoard has been installed in a domestic property.
REHAU CoolBoard is made up of plasterboard panels with integrated loops of REHAU’s RAUTHERM 10mm PE-Xa pipe. Chilled water is circulated through the pipe to provide a sustainable alternative to air conditioning.
The solution is easy to install, with pre-drilled fixing holes located on each panel for fitting to the ceiling. REHAU’s EVERLOC compression sleeve fittings are used to connect the pipe tails from the boards and guarantee no leaks.
In addition, Solar PV panels are mounted on the roof to generate the energy required for the chilled water, with excess energy stored overnight using a Tesla Solar battery.
Garry Woods, managing director of Be Green, reported that the company wanted to demonstrate to homeowners what could be achieved using sustainable energy in terms of low energy bills and a low carbon footprint, and that response from visitors so far has been largely positive.
