The team behind PipeSnug has launched a larger ‘FlueSnug’ version to fit all 100mm boiler flues. The product can be installed in less than five seconds and snuggly fits the 152mm core-drilled hole in the wall through which the boiler pipe and flue exits. FlueSnug can be used both inside and outside the property for the best finish and prevents heat escaping and acts as a barrier to drafts, damp, insects and pests.
Approved by major boiler manufacturers, FlueSnug claims to be the quickest, and most cost-effective way to comply with forthcoming changes to Part L of the Building Regulations.

Indoor Air Quality
Supporting the launch of Unico Systems’ small duct heating, cooling and ventilation into the UK, fromer Worcester Bosch CEO Richard Soper CBE, is predicting a renewed interest in indoor air quality amongst homeowners, residents and developers.
Following some scorching hot weather, Richard said: “We’re all spending much more time at home due to Covid-19 and people are considering how to improve conditions in the home. With the UK set to get even hotter over the coming years, demand for the type of climate control and filtration currently only found in cars is only going to increase.”

SensoHOME & SensoCOMFORT
Developed in response to both consumer and installer feedback, the sensoCOMFORT and sensoHOME controls claim to offer increased connectivity, a modern design and ease of use. Both models feature load compensation and weather compensation as standard, while the wired sensoCOMFORT can control up to five heating zones with individual room temperatures.
Vaillant has also extended the guarantees offered on its controls range to match the boiler or heat pump that it’s installed with, meaning it could be covered for up to 10 years depending on the product fitted.
