Our brand new OMNIE TOUCH smart thermostat delivers precise zone control of underfloor heating circuits. The large full colour LCD capacitive touchscreen display and ultra-thin profile not only mean that the device looks great in any home, but also ensures the programme menu is simple to understand and easy to use. A remote sensor is also available to create a partner zone (such as en-suite) or measure the temperature from a different location to the touchscreen. Our new controls are very easy to setup and have identical electrical connections to industry standard thermostats making them a clear choice for underfloor heating applications. The OMNIE TOUCH is available from mid 2018.
Ventilation & Heat Recovery (MVHR)
The ComfoAir-Q from OMNIE pumps clean and fresh air into your building whilst removing stale used air in the process. Maintaining good air quality is achievable with a OMNIE comfort air system which utilises Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery (MVHR). The OMNIE MVHR system has the ability to filter pollen and dust as standard, in addition to this, we have the options to provide some protection against harmful air pollutants.
With an average family producing 18 litres of water every day, regulating this humidity is possible through the OMNIE MVHR system. High levels of humidity can lead to health issues if mould occurs on cold surfaces and there is poor ventilation. One of the main benefits of the OMNIE solution is that it will extract more moisture over a longer period then compared with a conventional intermittent ventilation system.

WELSH HOUSEBUILDER OPTS FOR OMNIE ONE-STOP SHOP SOLUTION
WELSH HOUSEBUILDER OPTS FOR OMNIE ONE-STOP SHOP SOLUTION
An award-winning housebuilder who develops small sites and sells serviced plots to self-builders is close to completing a development of two dozen high specification homes near the Welsh Coast, having chosen renewables specialist, OMNIE to supply a complete underfloor heating package, including LG air source heat pumps.
The two dozen three and four bedroom homes at Pludds Meadow, located in the town of Laugharne, 12 miles south of Carmarthen, have been built by Salem Construction, part of Sancler Property. OMNIE provided full drawings and specifications for each plot, indicating the layout of their Staple and TorFloor UFH arrays across the ground and first floor to each dwelling.
Carl Thornton is Design Manager for Salem Construction and comments: “We build 15-20 houses a year and although we have used underfloor heating systems a number of times in the past, this is the first time we’ve worked with OMNIE. Having read up about the manufacturer on the internet I decided to go for the complete package they offer, rather than sourcing the pipework, manifolds, controls etc separately. This simplifies things for us while OMNIE also supplied all the drawings for our installer to work from and then its engineers come back to commission each system. The other alternative to having heat pumps for this site would have been oil-fired boilers – which would have required every house to have its own tank, with the risk of leakage into the ground. We have also had difficulties achieving compliance with SAP using oil-fired central heating. It has been a very successful project with Pludds Meadow winning Best Small Development category for Wales in last year’s NHBC awards.”
Opting for underfloor heating throughout avoids wall space being taken up with bulky and unsightly radiators, while porcelain floor tiles contribute to the feeling of luxury downstairs, laid over the OMNIE Staples UFH pipework which is fixed across rigid insulation and encapsulated in a screed.
Dale Jones of MJ Plumbing & Heating added: “The TorFloor in particular, combining a floor and heating system in one structural panel, is a fantastic system and really quite straightforward to install. The carpenters have fixed thepanels across both engineered and conventional timber joists for ourselves to lay the pipes and connect back to the manifolds which range from six to 12 port. I’ve liaised with OMNIE when we have been ready for them to come back to do the commissioning and the engineers have been really thorough as well as providing a prompt service. I was sceptical at first that the air source heat pumps, at just 7 kW, would be able to heat such large homes, but they have coped perfectly: even providing ample hot water for the four beds which have two en-suites and a main bathroom.”
As a fully proven and very versatile, panel based underfloor heating system, OMNIE’s TorFloor presents building services consultants and contractors with an unrivalled combination of performance benefits.
Crucially the TorFloor panels combine the ability to span upper storey joists or battens fitted across a ground level slab, to provide high efficiency underfloor heating and a structural deck in one product. Thus saving both time and money on installation, while avoiding the need for separate particleboard or other flooring.
The overall depth of the TorFloor panel is 22mm, featuring ball routed channels with a unique pattern to accept 12mm diameter pipes. The multi-directional design includes integral aluminium diffusers, to help create an even distribution of warmth to the occupied spaces, while an additional 6mm thick plywood covering layer has to be bonded to the TorFloor panel, to complete a structural deck and accept floor finishes.

WHOLE HOUSE HEATING GUIDE FROM OMNIE
The latest Product Guide from OMNIE covers all aspects of underfloor heating as well as the manufacturer’s holistic range of heat pumps, controls, ventilation and hot & cold water distribution. Indeed, these chapters reveal OMNIE’s philosophy of ensuring its five principal technologies work together in what it calls the Whole House System.
OMNIE offers underfloor heating solutions to suit all types of building, from new-build to refurb, from offices to churches: embracing screeded floors, timber suspended and batten, floating and low build-up/overlay, and even acoustic options. Each of the floor types are covered in terms of imagery, heating performance and specifications while, for those that require more technical detail, a QR code is provided, which enables the reader to download data sheets and installation guides for each product.
Towards the end of the 114 pages are contact details outlining how to obtain help and support for architects and other specifiers, industry installers and homeowners, along with common questions and information on the RIBA-approved CPD courses. Finally, ‘Starting your project’ explains how to get a quote and specification, placing an order and information on servicing and commissioning.
While UFH is accepted as optimising the performance of heats pumps, OMNIE can supply a full selection of air and ground source models, suitable for almost any building, irrespective of size, usage or heat loss characteristic. Then there are the advanced controls – including smartphone apps – and heat recovery ventilation systems available to ensure occupants not only enjoy efficiency and comfort but also a healthy indoor environment.
The beautifully presented A4 book features high-quality photography and technical drawings to support the various systems and the important fact that they are manufactured in an environmentally responsible way, using British-made component materials wherever possible – even the publication itself is made from carbon neutral paper.
Whatever your project parameters or your past experience of specifying Whole House Heating Systems, OMNIE has the product portfolio and expertise to help deliver a successful outcome.
