Blenheim Palace Residential Estate, Oxfordshire, UK

Intelligent heating controls for a stunning residential development
Built by Blenheim Estate Contractors, Home Farm is a stunning new residential development located at the heart of history-rich Blenheim Palace Estate, Oxfordshire, UK. A collection of 27 traditionally built houses and apartments, Home Farm includes properties for sale and rent, as well as social housing. These high quality, affordable homes are crucially important for both the Blenheim Palace Estate staff and the wider community, with a number of properties available for key workers in the local area, including the NHS, Police, Education, Local Authority and the Ministry of Defence.

The project

Specifying the heating system for the project, plumbing & heating contractor Lactodorum Contracts Ltd needed a thermostatic controls solution compatible with A rated combi boilers and underfloor heating. As well as energy efficiency, increased comfort and fuel economy for end users, the selected products needed to be fully compliant with Part L Building Regulations, particularly in terms of zonal and timed central heating systems control.

RWC's involvement

To meet the energy efficiency needs of the Home Farm development, RWC’s JG Aura Heating Controls range was specified. The system provides the capability of controlling multiple zones, enabling the homeowner to set heating time and temperature within each individual room resulting in considerable energy savings. This is enabled by JG Aura’s capability to simultaneously manage underfloor heating circuits, hot water supply and individual radiators. Further optimised by the JG Aura App, the system also allows the homeowners to remotely control their heating from anywhere using a phone or a tablet.
