Plumbing and Heating

Whatever the dimensions of your new build, Jewson offers a comprehensive range of products and services to fulfil your heating and plumbing requirements.

Jewson is also conscious of the need to provide sustainable solutions for your heating and water supply - two areas that are both major contributors to your carbon footprint, and are hard hit by rising fuel prices. That's where the expertise and products of Greenworks, another Jewson sister company, come in. Whether you already have an idea in mind about optimising energy efficiency, or you'd like to learn about the latest technology currently being used, we'll work with Greenworks to deliver the solutions.

High Efficiency Boilers

By recovering and using heat that would otherwise be lost, high efficiency or condensing boilers use less gas to produce the same amount of heat as standard boilers.

Hot Water Cylinders

Vented and unvented cylinders work with any UK pressure requirement, and offer excellent flow rates, reliability and extremely low running costs.

Designer Radiators

Radiators are still the most popular form of heating - but you no longer need to compromise on style in order to heat your self build. With many new shapes, designs, colours and finishes they can make a real design statement. We can offer everything from traditional column radiators to more modern designs to complement your style.

Under-floor Heating

This type of heating is increasing in popularity for several reasons:

  • It radiates more even heat than traditional methods - producing no hot-spots.
  • It removes the need for radiators - more flexibility with space.
  • It is very easy to install, highly energy efficient and can also be combined with traditional systems - for example under-floor heating on the ground floor but radiators and towel rails on the first floor.
  • There are systems available for any kind of flooring.

There are two main types of under-floor heating available:

  • Warm water systems - pipes set into screed approx 100mm below the floor surface, turning the whole floor into one large radiator.
  • Electric systems - ideal for smaller areas such as bathrooms, kitchens or conservatories.

Heating Controls

Whatever energy source and form of heating you use, the system will only be as good as the way it is controlled. Electronic programmers and programmable thermostats have been around for some time, and are an essential component in any central heating system. There are also new multi-zone heating systems to consider, which are growing in popularity. Ask in-branch for more information on these solutions.

Air-conditioning

Jewson offers a range of air conditioning systems that will keep the home comfortable all year round. These low energy systems can be used for heating, cooling or ventilation. They work through unobtrusive outlets that can be adapted to complement your home or fit into the most compact space.

Climate Control

A climate control system provides heating, cooling and ventilation. Highly efficient and very quiet, each system circulates air through the rooms in a building creating an even temperature in the entire space - making it cool in summer and warm in winter.

Ecoplay Greywater Harvesting

  • Up to 30% reduction in water consumption (reduces water bills without changing users' behaviour)
