A 2-storey barn conversion in the Cotswolds includes a comprehensive Hep2O underfloor heating system from Wavin to provide cost-effective and efficient heat distribution across both floors. It is helping the building to achieve BREEAM and CoSH targets for energy efficiency and thermal performance.

The stone building is being sympathetically renovated by design-and-build specialist JJ Siga. Gary Brain,a director, said, ‘We have been using Wavin underfloor heating systems for over 10 years. As a complete package and system that offers ease of installation, the Hep2O system proved the ideal solution for our high-end barn renovation.’

Following the application of the sub-floor, JJ Siga installed a75mm-thick pocketed polystyrene insulation layer alongside over 1000 linear metres of Wavin continuous pipe with a diameter of 16 mm. It was finished with a 75 mm-thick screed.
