New! A Skirting Board That Thinks it’s a Radiator – Thermaskirt.
Yes a new way of discretely heating your home without the need for bulky radiators. This skirting board has the ability to heat your home with ease which leaves more space in the home.
Thermaskirt A flexible space saving alternative
Whether it’s a kitchen diner, bedroom or basement, living room or loft Thermaskirt creates valuable wall space by removing the radiators – without disturbing your floors. Just imagine; extra kitchen units or fitted bedroom furniture where the radiator used to be, a sofa where everyone can enjoy the TV, or just more space to roam around.
Saying bye-bye to your bulky storage heaters or replacing your panel radiators, doesn’t mean you have to take up the floor coverings to install underfloor heating.
Thermaskirt can either connect straight onto any conventional plumbing system or any suitable electrical heating circuit and simultaneously provides a freshly painted new set of skirting boards that are durable, versatile and energy efficient.
1. Can ThermaSkirt connect to my existing heating system?
Yes! ThermaSkirt can be fitted to any system that provides warm water – gas, oil, electric, biomass or heat pump. If you have an existing central heating system it can be retrofitted with ThermaSkirt – one room at a time if necessary. If you are extending your property don’t to consider if your existing boiler is sufficiently sized to heat the extra space created.
Will Thermaskirt heat my room?
The simple answer is almost certainly YES. The superb radiating properties of the aluminium alloy in ThermaSkirt and the large surface area created by skirting the room more than makes up for the apparent inconspicuousness of the system.
I have an older/drafty property. Are you SURE, ThermaSkirt will heat my house?
We can draw your room, get the heat loss estimates and calculate the ThermaSkirt output in Watts for all our profiles. If in doubt, we always suggest an independent consultant as every house has its own peculiarities and problems, to give you an indication of how much ThermaSkirt is required to heat your property.
What about replacing radiators?
Yes! ThermaSkirt can certainly replace an existing radiator with little fuss. Pipework may need to be moved or extended however due to ThermaSkirt’s connection to the feed and return pipes being made at one end, unlike a radiator where the connections are at either end.
I have no gas on site. What boiler can I use?
ThermaSkirt can work with any heating system that can provide hot or even warm water. Electric boilers are now available, oil and wood pellet boilers are becoming more popular, as well as renewables such as solar thermal and ground source.
I live in a hard water area, is ThermaSkirt OK for me?
Hard water or limescale poses little threat to sealed systems (i.e. re-circulates the water) as the mineral levels should remain steady. Open systems (i.e. with a header tank) may cause ‘furring’ up over a long period. In either case, a simple limescale inhibitor, suitable for aluminium systems such as ‘ThermaSkirt TS5 or ScaleMaster SM1’ is recommended. Central heating systems should not be filled with chemically treated or ‘softened’ water.
