Don’t be without water this winter

WITH another winter of freezing temperatures forecast, now is the time to prepare for a hassle free winter by protecting the mains water supply from your house to the stopvalve/water meter.

WITH another winter of freezing temperatures forecast, now is the time to prepare for a hassle free winter by protecting the mains water supply from your house to the stopvalve/water meter.

Declan Cummins, Director of Heat Craft (Renewable Energy Specialists Ltd), says that last winter proved a nightmare for families and businesses across the country who had to cope without water for days. “The inconvenience alone, was more of a problem for people that the actual cost of repairing the water damage and the burst pipes. The positive thing this winter, is people can protect themsleves from history repeating itself and have total peace of mind.”

Heat Craft, a Tullamore based company who operate nationwide, is your local supplier of an excellent new product called the Mains Freeze ProtectorTM , which is now available on the market. Heat Craft specialize in building and insulation, fitting central heating and plumbing systems and installing high performance solar energy systems, in homes and businesses, throughout Ireland.

“The Mains Freeze Protector is the best of its kind,“ according to Declan of Heat Craft. We are seeing a huge demand for this product from homeowners, especially amongst the farming community. Farmers and businesses such as restaurants and hotels depend 100% on running water to run their businesses. These sectors suffered on the double last winter – they endured big revenue losses and carried heavy heating bills, from the pro-longed big freeze.

“We are in the business of saving people money on the running and heating of their homes,” explained Declan. “Once I was satisfied with the quality of this product I knew it was a no-brainer, both for Heat Craft and for families and business owners, across Ireland.” “The beauty of this product is its simplicity - it does not require any digging, is a very cost effective and is a straightforward installation,” said Declan.

The Mains Freeze ProtectorTM involves the insertion of a specially designed low voltage cable (48V DC) into the existing mains water pipe to your premises.

The Cable is heated by a thermostatically controlled unit which switches the system on and off during freezing conditions therefore protecting your water mains pipe from freezing.

According to Declan, there is a paradigm shift taking place amongst home and business owners nationwide. “People are starting to look at their homes and businesses as liabilities that can cost them a lot of money. By keeping up to date and being proactive in protecting their homes, from severe weather conditions and being certain their home or business is running efficiently, people are cutting costs by up to 30%. It is realistic to think you can achieve these savings without spending a fortune.

Our current economic circumstances are depressing our disposable incomes, which is making all of us search for new ways of saving money and protecting our families. “We need to be clear that it is possible to save money on the heating of our homes”, says Declan.

What makes Heatcraft unique is their focus on the cost to the home or property owner to actually live and run their home or business. We are passionate about helping home and business owners avoid the trap of fuel and water poverty. This means our customers being aware and choosing an informed option about how to freeze protect and heat your home or business in the most cost efficient way possible.

Therefore, the bill-payer also has peace of mind that Heatcraft as a company can take care of all jobs - from major construction, and minor refurbishments to the installation of 4th generation solar system technology to upgrading and servicing your boiler and all general heating and plumbing requirements.
