Gaia’s electric underfloor heating system has been installed in two new award-winning properties completed last year on the Channel Island of Jersey. Designed by local practice Godel Architects, the two two-bedroom houses, known as Zeelandia, are sleek and modern, with subtle references to the Art Deco period. With panoramic views over St Ouens Bay from La Pulente to Guernsey, the houses each incorporate two generous one-bed apartments to the rear and enjoy plenty of amenity space overlooking Les Ormes golf course. Built by Jersey contractor and developer Cape Construction, the properties are of concrete, stone and glass construction and are heated with Gaia’s electric underfloor system throughout. Most properties on Jersey are heated electrically, and while traditional radiant heaters are ubiquitous, underfloor heating is becoming increasingly popular, according to Gaia Account Manager, William Theobald. "We currently supply between 10 and 15 projects every year in the Channel Islands" says William "Though often regarded as a ‘luxury’ option, electric underfloor heating, such as installed here, is often a highly cost-effective solution”.
