Zehnder Nova Neo radiators have been installed as part of the expansion project at the St Peters C of E Primary School in Wrecclesham, Farnham.
Designed to help the school accommodate their increasing pupil numbers and to ensure they are able to provide a consistently happy, safe and exciting environment in which their pupils can learn and develop, the rebuild is to include a new state-of-the-art two storey teaching block, school hall and administrative area. Specifically designed to partner renewable heating technologies in educational and commercial buildings, Zehnder Nova Neo radiators have been installed along the corridors and in the stairwell of the new teaching block. Lee Mason, Associate at DHP Property Consultants comments, With the lower flow and return temperatures derived from the heat pump we needed a suitable emitter to meet the heat output requirements of certain problematic areas. Providing efficient heating at system temperatures of between 25°C 40°C, with the benefit of exceptional controllability and additional heat boosts when needed, the Zehnder Nova Neo was the perfect choice for this part of the building.
The Zehnder Neo Nova is a hybrid heating technologies and like a conventional radiator. However by using unique new technology (New Energies Optimised) it also incorporates small yet powerful fans coupled with a heat emitter to boost heat output quickly and efficiently, as and when required. When heating without fans the Zehnder Nova Neo operates like a conventional radiator by disseminating radiant and convected heat. Activating the integrated fans increases convection and therefore greatly boosts the heating output. As a result, when compared with a conventional radiator the Zehnder Nova Neo achieves a significantly quicker heat-up time when operated at the same system temperature
Locally based heating contractors, SMS (Southern) Ltd, carried out the installation of the products and being their first experience with the Zehnder Nova Neo were pleased with its ease of handling. As the Nova Neo is supplied as a finished product the installation was very straightforward explains John Postins, Contracts Manager for SMS.With no assembly required on site the radiators were mounted and connected quickly and safely.
Work is continuing on the second phase of the project where additional Zehnder Nova Neo radiators are to be installed. The whole project is planned for completion in Spring 2013.
