The environmentally friendly underfloor heating system, Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM, has been chosen to heat this ‘Grand Designs’-style dream home in Northern Ireland.
This unique ocean-facing property called Scotts on the Rocks is built at the foot of the highest peak in the Mountains of Morne, and included the installation of this advanced underfloor heating system throughout the property.
The home, which benefits from amazing views out to sea, is built on two levels with the main level housing a kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom, bedroom and sheltered sea terrace. A second level, downstairs, contains space for family and friends to stay and be entertained.
Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is an excellent efficient product and it’s very easy to install. The depth of screed is what sets this apart from other similar underfloor heating systems. It requires a 30% thinner screed which helps distribute heat much faster and therefore uses less energy.
This happens because the thin patented structure of the ceramic thermal floor allows it to respond to temperature changes that much quicker thanks to the connected air channels within the Schlüter®-DITRA membrane.
Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM’s low supply temperature of approximately 30°C, compared to the more conventional 50°C or the 70-90°C in some radiator systems, also means Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is extremely effective both with conventional heat generation methods and regenerative energy sources such as heat pumps or solar panels making it ideal for new build properties and other ‘grand designs’ similar to Scotts on the Rocks.
