Trench heating is an effective solution for cottage in Cheltenham

Trench heating has provided an effective alternative to radiators for heating a living room in Kenilworth Cottage in Cheltenham, owned by Richard Wheatley. He explains, ‘The room previously had a great big radiator on the back wall. It limited what we could do with the room. If we were to put a sofa in front of it, it would block the heat from circulating around the room and potentially damage the furniture over the course of time. The room also features large French windows.’

Having seen trench heating in a friend’s house in central Europe, he found Jaga as a potential supplier.

The Wheatley’s decided on the Mini Canal in floor alcoves with roll-up grilles in a natural-wood finish.

Trench heaters mitigate the heat loss through glass facades by creating convection currents that provide a warm-air blanket in front of the windows.

After listening to the Wheatley’s specific heating requirements, Jaga’s technical estimator Justin Vicarage recommend the inclusion of Jaga’s Dynamic Boost Effect fans with the capability of providing up to three times more heat into the room without compromising on the size of the Mini Canal. It can also provide a heat boost as and when required.’
