Style and substance keep McKeever home futureproofed

With all the focus on energy prices, it makes sense for homeowners to look at futureproofing their homes when they can. For Portglenone man Niall McKeever, when it came to choosing a heating system for his 2,800 sqft self-build project, the focus was very much on delivering on both style and substance.

Looking for a suitable underfloor heating system powered by a renewable source, Niall turned to the experts at the Heating Innovation Centre at Bassetts Clady for a solution. Chris McCready, Technical Sales Manager at the Heating Innovation Centre, explained, “Niall wanted a system that maintained the modern design of his home but that also futureproofed it in terms of efficiency.“We were able to put forward a Grant air-source heat pump paired with our GLO+ underflooring heating system and controlled by Heatmiser Neo Controls as a tailored solution that met both these demands.”

One of the key advantages of working with Bassetts is the service. As well as being able to provide expert guidance on products, the team at the Heating Innovation Centre also delivers design services for Niall’s project.

On top of that, Bassetts also supplied all the necessary plumbing and heating materials needed for a professional installation while Niall also sourced all his bathrooms as Bassetts Clady.

Chris added, “Being able to meet the complete plumbing, heating and bathroom needs for a project makes such a difference to customers like Niall. It has been a pleasure working with him and the result is another modern build that puts efficiency and future-proofing at the heart of the project while not compromising on the overall look.”
