Retirement and assisted living

We have a range of technologies designed to suit the specific requirements of new and retrofit retirement and assisted living accommodation projects. Our energy efficient and low footprint solutions can provide low carbon space and water heating, ventilation and cooling which maximise occupant comfort and reduce operational costs.


Zeroth Energy System

The Zeroth Energy System is designed to deliver low carbon heating, cooling and hot water efficiently in larger residential developments. An in-apartment water-to-water heat pump integrated with a hot water cylinder is connected to a central ambient loop, maintained by a selection of renewable plant options. The solution is space-saving and operates with lower service noise than comparable solutions on the market. The system can be connected to a renewable central plant and uses the same infrastructure for all services, freeing a considerable amount of space in the plant room and the building

Edel Hot Water Heat Pump

The Edel hot water heat pump is a highly efficient technology for delivery of low carbon hot water for both new and retrofit communal living developments. The air source heat pump collects energy from ducted external air and converts it into heat that is then transferred into the hot water cylinder. The compact solution has low spatial requirements and is easy to install. The quiet operation and wireless intelligent controls offer maximum user control and comfort.

Direct Acting Panel Heating

Our energy efficient direct acting panel heaters are a cost effective and compliant solution that are easy to install in both new and refurbishment projects. The technology has low space requirements that reduce the need for large plans and multiple services into a building. This is ideal for projects that need to maximise the available footprint of the building and provide aesthetically pleasing and comfortable living space for the occupants. Direct acting panel heaters are available in a range of designs to suit the aesthetics of the project. Easy to use electronic controls provide the end user with the convenience of setting their own comfort levels and the ability to overview their energy usage, and all ranges are maintenance free.

Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery

Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery is a balanced ventilation system that utilises heat recovery to maximise energy efficiency. The sophisticated system combines continuous supply and extract ventilation in one unit and is ideal for larger modern developments with low permeability. The system ensures adequate air quality for the occupiers and can be designed to the individual project requirements.
