Student developments opt for Stiebel Eltron panel heaters

Stiebel Eltron has been selected Unite Students to provide panel heaters across its property portfolio. Developments across the UK, including Skelhorne Street in Liverpool and Battery Park in Birmingham, will provide more than 1,500 units of industry-leading student accommodation.

The CNS-NC panel heater gives estates managers control through an innovative “slave control” feature, which sees the units controlled remotely to minimise the costs incurred by students heating their rooms.

Mark McManus, managing director of Stiebel Eltron UK, said: “Working with a high-profile developer like Unite Students is a huge vote of confidence in not only the quality of our home comforts range, but also its versatility.

“We’ve seen success in providing variations of this range to PRS developers and took the decision to diversify our offering with the no control option, which is tailored to the student accommodation market.

“We recognise the challenges that universities and estates managers face in providing high-spec developments that are energy efficient and minimise costs incurred by overuse. It’s this thinking that led to the development of the no control option, and to have Unite Students on board with the idea is a fantastic endorsement of the technology.”
