PRIZE 1: GoPro HERO3 camera Nu-Heat Underfloor & Renewables has teamed up with HPM to offer one reader the chance to win a GoPro HERO3 Silver Edition camera and The Sleekster Easter Egg Box Selection from Hotel Chocolat. Supplying complete, technically advanced warm water underfloor heating systems for the trade is a given, but it’s the way in which Nu-Heat partners with installers that really sets us apart. We take pride in delivering complete renewables packages that maximise energy efficiency while our unrivalled technical support ensures complete peace of mind across all technologies no matter what your project. PRIZE 4: A stylish Aquatap The Aquatap is the perfect addition to any home, providing all your drinking water needs from a single tap. Through a combination of Heatrae Sadia’s SuperChill and IntelliBoil technology, it delivers a constant supply of boiling water, as well as refreshing, chilled drinking water, or filtered ambient cold water at the touch of a button. In a beautiful, sleek, chrome finish, the compact unit, which sits neatly on your work-top, looks elegant in any kitchen, while the five litre hot water and chilled water tanks fit into an under-sink cupboard with ease. The Aquatap’s boiling function will provide a welcome alternative to kettles and urns, preserving energy through not having to re-boil the water. The cold, filtered function also removes the necessity to buy water filters or bottled water. PRIZE 2: A Milwaukee tool Uponor has launched its new Q&E complete plumbing system in the UK, offering a direct alternative to copper and plastic push-fit systems for heating, hot water and cold water services. The revolutionary new jointing system relies on the memory of Uponor’s PEX pipe and uses a specialist Milwaukee tool to rapidly expand the diameter of the pipe and Q&E ring to secure the fitting. The subsequent joint becomes watertight within seconds. Uponor is offering one lucky HPM reader one of these specialist Milwaukee tools, which is worth £480. PRIZE 5: Four Bristan showers Bristan is offering the chance to win a set of four electric showers, including the new thermostatic Joy Thermosafe® model (pictured), which offers safer balanced showering temperatures at a great price. Joy ThermoSafe® uses thermostatic technology to regulate the showering water temperature. This helps to balance extreme changes when water is used elsewhere in the home, cutting the risk of scalding. All products in Bristan’s electric shower range, Smile, Glee, Bliss and Joy Thermosafe®, are easy to fit; installers can choose between five water inlets and five electrical cable entry points. The showers also all have a footprint that will comfortably fit over the wall fixings of other manufacturers’ showers, as well as an extra-long 650mm riser rail with an adjustable bracket, which will cover the majority of previous fixing holes. PRIZE 3: A TracPipe FGP-28-15 KIT Bend it, bury it, turn it…now, you wouldn’t get that with other pipe materials such as rigid copper and steel. But, with TracPipe®, which is available in reels of up to 90 metres, you can bend it around those awkward corners, twist it easily through tight spaces, bury it underground or below floorboards, turn in around walls and route it through the most difficult of installations with ease. There is no need for heat for soldering or welding joints or having to wait around after the installation. TracPipe® is clean, easy to use, pliable, and the only tools you’ll need is a standard wheeled pipe cutter, a utility knife and a couple of spanners. TracPipe® comes in reels for long continuous pipe runs, in diameters of 12, 15, 22, 28, 32, 40 and 50mm. PRIZE 6: An Apple iPad 3 Easy and quick to install, Knauf Brio Dry Floor Screed is a superb substrate for perfect floors in new build and refurbishment projects that not only cuts construction times but also boosts both thermal and acoustic performance – and scores points on the sustainability front too. Brio is an engineered gypsum flooring panel that has a very high thermal conductivity so heating response times are quicker and energy use is reduced. When used in place of chipboard, Brio is proven to increase underfloor heating system efficiency by between 36% and 43%. Any competent tradesperson can install Brio Dry Floor Screed – no specialist trades are required because the boards are manufactured with precision, so that boards fit together smoothly and quickly.
