A variety of Heating and Efficiency Packs have been created by Danfoss to give installers a simple and cost-effective controls solution contained in one handy pack. Available in a choice of eight configurations, Heating Efficiency Packs contain TRVs and a room thermostat, specially selected from the Danfoss range to suit different applications and budgets.
Gareth Ash, Danfoss’s Marketing Services Manager, says: “The millions of UK households without any form of heating controls can make big savings on their heating bills for a relatively small investment in one of our Heating Efficiency Packs. And by promoting these proven benefits to their customers, installers can generate extra sales for their business – so everyone’s a winner.”
The six TRVs in each High Efficiency Pack feature Danfoss’s ‘flow selectable’ revolver valve body. This can be installed horizontally or vertically, in flow or return, to solve the age-old problem of ‘water hammer’. If any system noise occurs after fitting it can be stopped by simply ‘revolving’ the barrel to reverse the flow direction, reducing costly call-backs. Matching lockshield valves and wheelheads are also included in the pack.
Room thermostats available in Danfoss High Efficiency Packs range from a hard-wired or wireless dial or digital room thermostat from the RET range to the TP5000Si, a fully programmable room thermostat offering up to six time and temperature changes per day. Purchasing these products separately could cost over 40% more, making the packs value-for-money. In addition to being a more economical way to buy Danfoss controls, they offer installers the convenience of buying a single pack off the shelf.
Summing up, Gareth Ash says that whilst ‘smart’ systems, which allow you to control your heating via an internet app, have their place in the market, not everyone is comfortable using this type of technology. He comments: “Our High Efficiency Packs of TRVs and room thermostat provide installers with a simple and cost-effective solution to the needs, and budgets, of most households, helping to keep them comfortably and affordably warm.”
