Our range of solutions are designed to assist cost effective and energy efficient HVAC specification for affordable housing developments. These solutions support compliance within the drive towards sustainable buildings and can help meet new Building Regulation requirements - as well as any local planning regulations.


Maximising quality on a budget is a key feature of our range of solutions in this area, and we have worked closely with building service engineers to understand what is needed from heating, hot water, and ventilation systems in this application.

Edel Hot Water Heat Pump

A low carbon energy efficient way to deliver hot water to residential dwellings that can be partnered with electric heating.

Hot Water Cylinders

Unvented heat retention cylinders for a cost effective and energy efficient solution when delivering hot water or hot water and heating whilst still maintaining pressure on the water supply.

Direct Acting Panel Heaters

Cost effective, energy efficient and versatile electric heating solutions. These solutions require no pipework, reduce installation costs, and offer greater design flexibility.

High Heat Retention Storage Heating

An option for some technology combinations in affordable homes that offers the benefits of local energy storage and lower cost tariffs.

Heat Pumps

Renewable energy solutions for low carbon dwellings, using natural sources such as air, ground, and water to provide hot water and space heating.

Intelligent Fan Convectors

Our SmartRad is an intelligent fan assisted convector specifically designed to work with lower temperature systems such as air source heat pump installations. Their efficiency allows for smaller emitters to be specified, minimising wall space.


Options for single room and multiple spaces are available, supporting compliant designs alongside our space heating technologies across a range of budgets and applications.

Towel Rails

Electric standalone or integrated control options available.

HVAC Controls

Our heating, ventilation and hot water controls offer a range of options to help maximise comfort and efficiency.


From specification through to product installation, we offer end-to-end training, service, and support.

Specification support

Our specialist teams are continually working with housing developers and have extensive experience in delivering HVAC solutions for a range of project budgets and specifications. Talk to us and we will help you in finding the best system for your next affordable housing project.

Design Support:

We have an Application Design team who can assist with an initial solutions design depending on your specification, budget, and space requirements. This includes sizing products and can include a full end-to-end system proposal.


Our range of accredited CPDs are designed to help industry professionals better understand solutions and regulations which impact their specification.

Training programs

We offer a range of product training courses which can be delivered at one of our six UK training centres or directly on site. We will provide everything needed for our informative and hands-on interactive sessions.
