Chitterman House in Leicestershire has been completely renovated. Redesigned from the foundations up, it has been transformed into a stunning, modern family property complete with eco-friendly and sustainable features which include the award winning Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM underfloor heating system.
The grand design has been built across two floors accommodating five bedrooms, five wetrooms and 8,500 sq ft of living space. The project has also seen an extension built which includes a gym, games room and garage.
Throughout the project, the homeowner’s clear vision of energy efficiency has remained integral to the building’s overall design. Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM was chosen as the perfect heating method for Chitterman’s needs because it runs at a low temperature and gradually releases heat evenly without leaving any cold spots throughout such a large space. The innovative product was used extensively in the project’s outbuildings as well as across the ground and first floor living areas, including bedrooms and wetrooms.
Contractor Tony Pearson, of Pearson Properties, said, “The product has been great as it’s allowed the property to have individual heating control settings in each room and the system is ideal in both hot and cold weather because of its ability to pump warm and chilled water through its pipes.”
Carl Stokes, Head of Marketing and Customer Service at Schlüter-Systems, commented, “Traditionally Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM has been a popular choice amongst architects and specifiers looking for the perfect underfloor heating system for some of the country’s top projects. However, increasingly there are more and more examples where home owners and self-builders are specifying it in their projects, as they look to add that touch of quality to their extensions, new-builds and self-build properties.”
He added, “Unlike other systems, which just provide component warranties, Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM gives the peace of mind that our warranty covers the whole floor assembly, therefore adding additional safety and benefits to this innovative system.”
Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is available from Schlüter-Systems stockists.
