Heating and ventilation solutions to meet all local authority and social housing requirements

At the Chartered Institute of Housing’s 2016 Exhibition, Johnson & Starley is exhibiting a comprehensive range of heating and ventilation products that meet the needs of housing associations, local authorities, housebuilders and contractors. Housing professionals involved in the specification of energy efficient H&V solutions will be able to discuss specific project requirements with a company that has unrivalled experience in this market through countless installations of its warm air heating, gas condensing boiler and ventilation products.

Johnson & Starley’s warm air heating range, for example, has traditionally been the most important element of the company’s expertise, with local authorities and social housing providers continuing to specify successive generations of these reliable, high efficiency units. The latest WarmCair condensing warm air heaters, with thermal efficiencies of up to 98 per cent, combine high energy efficiency with low running costs, low NOx emissions and low operational noise levels. Models are available with or without DHW provision.

Gas fired QuanTec condensing boilers are also now being widely specified for both new build and refurbishment projects, with the design of the highly energy efficient QuanTec HR28C with Integral Passive Flue Gas Heat Recovery(PFGHR) condensing combi boiler particularly popular. The QuanTec HR28C is not only possibly the most efficient boiler on the market of its kind but also one of the smallest as it has no addition in height or add on for the PFGHR.

This is now available in a combined package with the Aquair heating interface unit (HIU) and is ideal for the replacement of old centralised heating and especially warm air systems. To extend the potential application range of QuanTec, an LPG version of the 28KW combination boiler has also been added to the line-up.

The new Aquair downflow S-36 water to air space heater is designed for use with a vast range of renewables and traditional heating sources. It offers all the benefits of centralised heating and can replace a warm air heater whilst also making use of warm air ducting already installed. Alternatively, it can be run in conjunction with an existing wet heating system to provide heating to additional rooms such as extensions, loft or garage conversions, and also has the option of providing unheated air for cooling purposes in warmer weather.

The housing market continues to specify Johnson & Starley’s highly efficient ventilation technology for new build and refurbishment applications. Today’s new housing developments are noteworthy for their high levels of insulation, which has the adverse effect of increasing the risk of condensation and mould growth. This can lead to potentially unhealthy living conditions and increased the risk of damage to the building’s fabric.

Therefore Johnson & Starley advocates that any heating specification must go hand in hand with the correct ventilation system, whether for new build or refurbishment projects. The company provides solutions that meet all social housing and local authority requirements, ranging from simple extract fans to centralised whole house ventilation systems, cooker hoods and sophisticated highly energy efficient heat recovery systems.

Full details of all Johnson & Starley products will be available at CIH Housing Conference & Exhibition 2016 on stand D48.
