Northampton based JD Plumbing and Heating has been growing its business in recent years after discovering the multiple benefits of buying the ready-to-install underfloor heating systems offered by CIRCOFLOPRO, part of the Ridgespear Group.
The company covers an area from the East Midlands over to Milton Keynes and down into North London, undertaking domestic and other work for private clients and smaller builders, one of whom first brought CIRCOFLOPRO to the firm’s attention.
Founder and Director, John Drew explained: “I have been using CIRCOFLOPRO for all of my underfloor heating installations for the past three years, after a builder I do some work for was using it on a job and I was just really impressed with the flexibility of the approach. It appeals because you can’t always put pumps or manifolds where they should be ideally and CIRCOFLOPRO makes things easier in a lot of circumstances. Service and delivery are also very good: where on one job recently I ordered what I wanted on a Tuesday and it was with me on the Thursday and was laid on Friday. It is also very simple to order or specify, with CIRCOFLOPRO just wanting to know the depth of Celotex (insulation) you’re using and what’s going on top and they do all the rest for you.”
The most recent project where JD Plumbing and Heating has chosen to employ CIRCOFLOPRO is an old farmhouse at Brigstock in Northants that had been substantially refurbished following a flood, where another underfloor heating system was installed, but unfortunately hadn’t performed well. With a new 40 kW gas boiler already in-situ, John measured up for laying CIRCOFLOPRO ClipRail across the whole of the reconfigured ground floor. He continued saying: “There had been issue with the old system due to the depth of screed covering it and the pipe sensors which had been used. We fitted the ClipRail and pipe runs across 100mm of Celotex and the builder then laid a conventional sand/cement screed.”
“The installation was all completed in January, with lovely looking limestone flooring laid on top and the client is very happy with the way it is all working and we’re hoping to do a lot more jobs with CIRCOFLOPRO in the future.”
