The restoration of this magnificent Victorian semi-detached home is taking place in Didsbury near Manchester and is located on Old Broadway. This premier area's residents include brokers, footballers and media personalities. Developer Yasmin McDonald realised that the Unico System was the ideal choice for this refurbished property because its installation makes perfect use of existing wall cavities and underfloor spaces within the older property.
The restoration has been given the final touch of class with the incorporation of a Unico System fired by hot water gas boilers. It incorporates three separate air handling units to provide heat throughout the four storey property. One air handler for the first and second floor bedrooms is conveniently positioned horizontally in the attic. Two further units for the lower floors are tucked out of the way in the basement. The installation features a wide range of wooden floor outlets, slotted skirting outlets and conventional circular outlets.
The alternative approaches to heating the property included conventional wet radiators which would have completely spoiled the carefully chosen interior design of each room. Another possibility was underfloor heating, which would have been extremely expensive and disruptive to install. Instead, the Unico System has proven the ideal choice. Yasmin says: 'The Unico System has given us the freedom to be creative with our décor and furnishings. The look of the system is very minimal, so it doesn't hold you back. The comfort levels that it can achieve are fantastic.'
