Having worked on this property for the previous owner, we were delighted to be engaged to supply and install a variety of new systems and make alterations to existing systems following extensive renovations. When designing heating and cooling for a home of this size, attention to detail is paramount. With this in mind, we had many meetings with the owners and their builder prior to commencement and kept in constant contact throughout the project.
The light coloured furnishings and fine lines of this home are perfectly suited to Hydronic Heating and Ducted Air Conditioning, where the grills and radiators blend into their surroundings. In this home, we used the Radiant 98.3% efficient condensing boiler with Korado radiators and In Slab Hydronic Heating. A zoned Daikin Ducted Air Conditioning system and Daikin VRV Mini Ducted Bulkhead Air Conditioning system round out a complete heating and cooling package.
Architecturally designed and professionally decorated, this Surrey Hills home has the best of both worlds!
Upstairs is kept cool on hot summer days by Daikin ducted reverse cycle air conditioning using unobtrusive multi-directional vents in the ceiling. Of course, as this system is reverse cycle, a push of a button turns it into a heater on cold winter nights. Downstairs, heating and cooling is provided through a combined gas ducted heating and add on air conditioning system using a carefully designed single duct network under the floor. Controlled by a convenient, wall mounted thermostat, this system is also zoned to ensure maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
Outdoor entertaining with family and friends is a favourite past time for the owners of Game Street Blackburn.
Beginning with tasteful, modern Thermofilm Heatstrips mounted on the ceiling of the Al Fresco entertaining area, you step inside the open plan family living room where the discreet, stylish theme is continued with linear slot diffusers used to disperse air from the Daikin reverse cycle refrigerated ducted air conditioning system. A real flame gas fire creates a cosy setting as the entertaining moves indoors.
Hydronic heating via a 98.3% efficient Radiant Condensing boiler is used throughout the home to provide a consistent, subtle warmth suitable for allergy suffers and asthmatics as there is no fan circulating air. Korado flat panel radiators have been used to continue the modern, integrated theme and the addition of Korado hydronic towel rails in the bathrooms and ensuite ensure you step out of the shower to a warm, dry towel.
Large windows in this 2 storey home in Northcote meant careful consideration needed to be given to the heating and cooling load requirements. Requiring a greater kilowatt capacity than a single system can provide we elected to use two separate styles of heating and cooling.
Brivis Gas Ducted Heating with Brivis intergrated Add On Air Conditioning has been used throughout with multi-directional outlets. In the kitchen/family areas bulkheads were constructed to accommodate Daikin mini ducted bulkhead systems. A stand alone gas log fireplace was installed in the comfortable sitting room creating a cosy environment to curl up with a favourite book.
