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.
Nestled in bushland but with sea views, this showcase property in Red Hill is one of our most challenging projects to date. Our brief was to integrate heating and cooling into the open plan, free flowing home. To achieve this we selected a variety of systems.
Daikin VRV air conditioning allowed us to install concealed Daikin ducted bulkhead systems and Daikin ducted systems all connected to just one outdoor condensor. These systems are fitted off with white aluminium bar grills and linear slot diffusers that blend seamlessly into white panelled ceilings. Where we were structurally prevented from using a grill a multi-directional register was used.
Hydronic heating using a Radiant 98.3% efficient condensing boiler and Korado radiators provides a barrier to the cold ocean air, while feet are kept warm in the bathrooms using Devi under tile electric heating. Owners and guests take advantage of the spectacular views as Thermofilm Heatstrips encourage year round dining in the Al Fresco area.
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.
Beautifully renovated, the owners of this Surrey Hills residence have successfully retained the period features of their home. Our challenge was to come up with a heating and cooling solution that also preserved these features. Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning was not an option as the decorative ceiling could not be disturbed. Considered by some to be obtrusive, we have succeeded in strategically placing separate Daikin split system air conditioners throughout the house resulting in an effective cooling system that is pleasing to the eye.
For heating, the owners chose hydronic heating with a Radiant boiler and Korado radiators to provide warmth throughout their home. Korado Radik Klasic ribbed radiators blend in with the period features and the clever placement of towel rails above radiators in the bathrooms ensure towels are always dry.
