The Craigiebank area of Dundee is home to many of the region's non-standard construction dwellings including approximately 100 Atholl system properties built in the 1920’s.
We were asked to provide a heating solution for kitchens and hallways in each of these homes as part of a refurbishment project being completed by GoSustainable, the main contractor.
The Housing Association were keen to find a solution to free up valuable wall space where traditional radiators would normally be situated, whilst providing energy efficiency and comfort for their tenants.
After careful consideration Redwell's 400 and 610 watt Round heating panels with independent programmable thermostats were considered to be the best solution. The infrared heating panels would provide much needed comfort in specific areas where it was not possible to include traditional wall mounted radiators.
Our assessment revealed a lack of wall space in both kitchens and on stairwell landings where heating was required. It was important to maximize wall space in kitchens to allow Abertay Housing Association to achieve their storage capacity for Scottish Housing Quality Standards (SHQS)

In order to deliver energy efficiency, reliability and a high level of comforting heat to every part of the house, infrared heating panels were chosen for the installation:
Space: Ceiling mounted infrared panels would free up valuable space and tenant comfort.
Reliability: Redwell panels require zero maintenance in comparison to typical convection heaters and boilers since they involve no moving parts.
Installation: with a refurbishment in progress, including a whole house re-wire Redwell panels would be easily integrated - removing obtrusive radiators and pipework.
the heating is fully controllable in each space via the thermostats.
A number of Infrared heating panels were chosen for the installation:
Redwell Largeround and Middleround panels were chosen for the installation:
Kitchens & Hallways: Round heaters mounted on the ceiling to free up much needed wall space.
Thermostat control: Programmable thermostats used throughout.
The installation was co-ordinated with the main contractor whilst the home was being renovated. New electrical wiring system was installed throughout the property. We planned the positioning of the heaters in advance to allow for all wiring to be fully integrated.
"Our main goal was to ensure we had heating in areas that were tight for space and something with little or no maintenance. The added benefit of having freed up invaluable wall space in kitchens has ensured we now have more storage space, something we needed to address for SHQS. ."
The new Redwell heaters have achieved Abertay Housing Associations' goals of a simple but effective heating solution offering a high level of efficiency and comfort for their properties. Since tenants have returned to their re-furbished homes, use of the panels has been problem-free and no maintenance issues have been reported. The enhanced heating system has translated to a happy client - and by extension, happy tenants.

Infrared heating is the core of Jigsaw Solutions. We believe that we should not be a slave to our home heating systems. Infrared enables us to take back control. We are no longer obliged to place the panels in the same places at the radiators. Our panels can be ideally placed at the same place as a mirror or picture. Or, even on the ceiling.
