Polyplumb UFH Benefits Barn Conversion
With a footprint of less than 200 sq.m. living space in this barn conversion was restricted and so, in order to maximise the floor area and leave walls uncluttered, underfloor heating was specified from the outset. The Polyplumb System was selected for its efficiency speed of installation and sustainable credentials. The hall and kitchen areas downstairs utilised the ultraflexible polybutene pipe in a solid concrete floor, whilst the configuration used for the suspended floors upstairs utilised heat spreaders on battens before the pipe was again walked in from the coil.
The Barn was a prime example of what can be done to enhance a building by sympathetic rebuild and utilisation of sustainable product solutions. It combines traditional charm with the warmth, convenience and comfort that modern living requires and succeeds within a framework that is ecologically sound and energy efficient.
