The managing director of a Cheltenham plumbing firm is championing the benefits of OSMA Underfloor Heating after making the decision to have the system installed in his new build home.
John Rogers, of Shackleton and Wintle Ltd, will move into the property on Belmont Homes’ new multi-million pound housing development, Regency Walk, shortly and is confident that underfloor heating will become extremely popular once more people learn about the advantages of the system.
John comments: “Working within the plumbing industry, I am aware of the many different heating systems on the market and I have to say OSMA Underfloor Heating really is the better option.
“The great thing about underfloor heating is that it doesn’t matter what furniture you have, you don’t have to design your room around the system, like you have to do with radiators. Underfloor heating also provides a more comfortable heat.”
Mr Rogers three-storey, three bedroom home sits at the heart of the development which consists of 400 high specification 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 3 bedroom town houses.
OSMA Underfloor Heating is proving popular with homeowners because of its wide range of benefits as Karly Taylor, spokesperson for OSMA Underfloor Heating suppliers Wavin Plastics, explains: “We offer a range of systems which are both practical and efficient.
“Mr Rogers decided to install the OSMA Pocketed Polystyrene system for maximum flexibility. This is a real time-saving option as the system allows insulation to be fitted at the same time as the UFH pipes.
“The insulation panels have machined channels and screed pockets to grip the pipe. Special end panels hold the pipe turns and insulate the Flow and Return pipe runs for each circuit.
“Consumers are now more style conscious than ever before and are, in turn, demanding more from their home heating systems and in addition, cost, health and safety remain important issues and underfloor heating is able to satisfy all these concerns while providing tangible and far reaching benefits.”
