Radiator

Heaters
THE CHALLENGE
The existing houses had either a concrete floor, or
suspended wooden floors. For these houses, we
could not use the traditional approach of installing
water pipes in the floors. Radiator heaters were
recommended for the houses and rooms with
concrete floors. Water pipes were fixed to the
bottom of the suspended wooden floors, and
covered with polystyrene for insulation.

THE SOLUTION
Home Comfort supplied a variety of heating
scenarios to the Serene Satyagraha House:
• State-of-the-art radiators in the rondawels.
• Water underfloor heating with pipes in
the sleeping quarters of the main house.
• Polystyrene insulation beneath the
water underfloor heating pipes.
• Hot water produced by a solar powered heat pump. CASE STUD
