Underfloor heating serves historic railway station

Published:  12 October, 2009

This restored railway station in Derbyshire is heated with underfloor heating from JG Speedfit.

Underfloor heating supplied by JG Speedfit has been installed in the Grade 2 listed Cromford Railway Station close to Sir Richard Arkwright’s first successful water-powered cotton-spinning mill in Derbyshire. The system was specified following a successful previous installation on the site. Heat is supplied by two high-efficiency Ultracom boilers donated by Glow-worm.

Digital room thermostats from JG Speedfit control the system. These thermostats enable users to program the temperature in the room while the time is set at a central controller.

Underfloor heating was specified for its energy-saving potential.
