The Farho central heating system is the ideal solution for modern homes, apartments, institutions and small to medium sized commercial units.
Central heating installation can be completed quickly. The electrical connections are pre-wired. Simple secure wall fixings are supplied.
The real cost of ownership of an electric central heating system is a combination of the original capital and installation cost, the annual fuel cost, maintenance costs and the operational lifetime of the system.
The exceptionally fast installation times means labour is only required later in the project planning of new builds. This can amount to faster build times and capital cost savings.
There is no pipe work or flues so architects and home builders have less restriction for building layout and design. Electric radiators can also be installed virtually anywhere in the room. Listed buildings may benefit by locating radiators in places where pipes would be difficult.
Building Regulations Part L deals with the Conservation of Fuel and Power from Buildings. “Approved Document L” was last updated in 2006 and compliance is now based on buildings not exceeding a calculated maximum level of CO2 emissions per m2 of floor area, per year. This is calculated based on insulation properties of the building materials used, the type and fuel of the heating system, hot water and ventilation services specified and the “air tightness” of the building.
As well as being based solely on carbon dioxide emissions for the first time, the 2006 target level was also reduced over the equivalent 2002 regulations.
Further changes to Part L will come over the next 8 years
