Bendall & Osborne Heating, a family owned plumbing and heating contractor based in Bury St Edmunds turned to Speedfit when they experienced a heating issue at their own headquarters.
One of the meeting rooms located on the ground floor was always cold and to temporarily resolve the issue Bendall & Osborne had been increasing the temperature in the entire building, resulting in the offices on the second floor becoming overheated whilst the meeting room on the ground floor remained cool.
JG Aura Wireless Thermostatic Radiator Valve (TRV) was identified as the best solution for individually controlling radiators. By combining the TRVs with a JG Aura Wireless Thermostat, Bendall & Osborne can easily control the time and temperature of individual radiators.
Once a room reaches the desired temperature the TRV sends a signal, via the wireless thermostat, to switch the boiler off. With the system programmed to only heat occupied rooms at specified times it delivers considerable energy and cost savings, whilst ensuring a consistent level of heat throughout.
Each room was fitted with a 230v mains powered JG Aura Wireless Thermostat, which was simple to wire with just two L&N connections per device. A JG Aura Boiler Receiver was fitted to communicate with the boiler.
The JG Aura Coordinator was used to automatically pair all the components to the wireless network. This was achieved in a matter of seconds as the coordinator requires no wiring and is simply plugged into a mains socket. The thermostats were programmed into four independent heating zones enabling Bendall & Osborne to resolve the problematic heating in the meeting room without changing any pipework and disrupting the operation of their business.
