BDR THERMEA Unveils Biomass & Micro-CHP Solutions For The Home***Stand E11, Greenbuild Expo, Manchester Central, 29-30 June 2011***

BDR Thermea (formerly Baxi Group) showcases its broad range of low carbon solutions for new build and social housing developments at this year’s Greenbuild Expo.

Highlights include the recently launched Baxi Bioflo for biomass projects and Baxi Ecogen, the only commercially available micro-CHP unit purpose-designed for the home. Also on display are the recently launched Multifit GasSaver and Multifit HeatSaver products which provide additional SAP benefits to help meet Levels 3 & 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH) when using a high efficiency Baxi or Potterton combi boiler. These innovations combine with domestic and commercial water and space heating technologies from BDR Thermea’s extensive brand portfolio, supported by the company’s Know-How initiative, to provide a comprehensive range of system solutions for specifiers.

Baxi Bioflo is designed to help developers meet CfSH Level 4 and comply with the requirements of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. This innovative free-standing, pellet fed boiler can be installed in living areas, making boiler specification and installation much simpler on new-build and retrofit housing projects than is possible with traditional biomass solutions. Baxi Bioflo is especially suited to social housing developments in rural, off mains gas areas where it can help alleviate fuel poverty issues.

Complying fully with the new requirements of Part L1 of the Building Regulations (2010, the revolutionary Baxi Ecogen is designed for new build and retrofit specification, helping developers meet Level 4 in the CfSH and take advantage of Government funding initiatives, such as, the FiT. Baxi Ecogen installation can save up to £600 in fuel bills for a typical 4 bed semi detached home and achieve carbon reductions totalling 3.3 tonnes 2% when replacing a SEDBUK (2005) Band G boiler.

Designed for use with Baxi and Potterton HE combi boilers, the Multifit GasSaver is a passive flue gas recovery system which reduces energy usage by up to 37% and water consumption by up to 7%., It recovers heat from flue gases that would otherwise be wasted, using it to pre-heat water coming into the boiler from the cold mains supply. Visitors can see how a Mutlifit HeatSaver package adds a 50l temporal store to the Multifit GasSaver system, optimising heating and reducing gas consumption still further.

Other low carbon solutions featured under the BDR Thermea umbrella comprise technologies from Baxi, Potterton, Heatrae Sadia, Valor, Andrews Water Heaters, Santon, Elson, Baxi Sener-tec and Potterton Commercial. These include Baxi Ambiflo™ air source heat pumps and Baxi Geoflo™ ground source heat pumps; Baxi Solarflo™ thermal water heating systems; Heatrae Sadia hot water storage cylinders, water heaters and Electromax solar thermal electric water heaters; and Potterton Commercial Sirrus SAT Heat Box units for district heating system applications.

Visitors can also find out about the BDR Thermea Know How initiative at Greenbuild Expo. BDR Thermea Know How is the platform which allows the company to communicate its unrivalled knowledge of the legislative framework in specification and its expertise in helping specifiers assess the impact of their system solution in meeting these requirements. As part of this initiative, Simon Osborne, BDR Thermea’s Specification Channel Manager will present on the Building Regulations and the Code for Sustainable Homes at 10 AM on Wednesday 29th June) in the Housing strand of the Greenbuild Expo conference programme.
