T: 01484 383284
Here’s what energy company Funkyheat have to say about their innovative product. “Funkyheat is the smartest heater on the market. We're talking efficient, cost effective heating using infrared technology. At Funkyheat, we're funking up the heat world by directly heating objects through infrared technology, rather than just warming the air like traditional heaters - plus we've got some pretty amazing heater designs. We're all about that sweet, sweet mix of substance and style. If you're still wondering how Funkyheat works, let us lay it down for you. Most heat sources just warm up the air, which is a pretty quick way to waste heat and money. Infrared heat waves, however, only heat objects. When they touch an object or your body, heat is either absorbed or reflected to other objects in the room. Infrared heat actually works exactly like sunlight - and is at least half the cost to run versus other heating systems. It's also incredibly efficient and emission free, meaning it's a whole lot better for the planet. Oh, and did we mention Funkyheaters are easy to install and take zero maintenance? Endorsed by Omar Park Development Services.”

As with all the timber used in the construction of a Homeseeker park home, all wooden roof structures are made from FSC-sourced wood as our walls which are also sealed with a durable, textured, protective coating. Furthermore, the floors in a Homeseeker park home are made from tempered hardboard and chipboard that is also sourced from FSC-approved sustainable forests. Our cavity flooring is insulated with high performance insulation and the cavity design keeps the pipe work within the heated envelope of the home.

Insulat-MT creates a thermal insulating barrier when added to any off-the-shelf paint, to help reduce your heating bills. Insulat-MT is a paint additive containing ceramic microspheres that have the same heat reflective properties as the tiles of the space shuttle, used to combat the high temperatures experienced during re-entry. These microspheres are hollow and have a vacuum at their centre through which heat cannot be transferred, in effect, these spheres act as miniature thermos. Insulat-MT creates an insulating barrier that actually blocks radiated heat and prevents the transfer of heat. If it is not stopped, that radiant energy would be absorbed by the standard wall or ceiling insulation and eventually pass through/ To use it, simply mix the contents of two bottles with 5L of interior or exterior paint and apply two coats by brush, roller or spray gun. The cost to apply Insulat-MT is only a few pence per square foot. Insulat-MT can help prevent mould and mildew. Mould spreads like any other living organism, it reproduces and grows in moist and damp areas. Where's there’s moisture there's almost bound to be mould and mildew. Insulat-MT insulating paint additives have proven to reduce moisture formation on walls and ceilings. Insulat-MT basically ruins the party for mould and mildew because it has very good moisture resistant additives and inhibits condensation. Insulat-MT eliminates the key factor, moisture, for the spread of mould and mildew.

As winter is fast approaching we turn up the heating and should turn our minds to the dangers of Water, Carbon Monoxide and Gas leaks. Leaking washing machines, dishwashers and burst tanks alone cost Britons over £1.8 million. Gas and Carbon Monoxide leaks, not only cause damage to property but can maim and kill you, your family and your pets. One of the reasons that CO is so deadly is because you can’t smell, taste or see it. The six main symptoms of CO poisoning are headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, collapse and loss of consciousness. Signs that the deadly gas can be present include; Lazy yellow or orange flames on a cooker. The flame should be crisp and blue, dark staining around or on the appliance, pilot lights that frequently blow out, and increased condensation inside windows. There have been six serious gas explosions in the UK since May 2012. Five people have lost their lives, many more suffered severe injury not to mention the disruption to and loss of property. Magneflo Excess Flow valves have a range of water and Gas /CO safety products which not only detect leaks but also switch off water and gas, to help protect you and your property from disaster.

Refali Ltd are fast becoming the go-to guys in park home climate control. Based in the West Country, and with over 25 years of experience in Air conditioning and heating systems, Refali are carving out a niche in this market.
They explain, “We have all heard the biblical story of the five loaves and two fishes, well, modern technology has effectively achieved this with inverter drive heat pumps. Refali are installers of mostly Fujitsu equipment which boasts outstanding performance figures and it works like this: We are able to heat and cool up to four rooms off one piece of outdoor equipment, we call this a “multi”. This multi will allow you to have four rooms at four different temperatures giving you full flexibility. You can of course have only one room in operation and the rest turned off.
“Essentially, you will be getting around 4-4.5 kilowatts of heating per kilowatt of electricity consumed and, in cooling mode for those hot summer days and nights, 3.8 kilowatts of cooling for each kilowatt consumed. For those of you paying up to £3.00 a therm for propane gas to heat a park home, you may want to do some sums!
Our biggest multi will give up to 8 kilowatts of heating which is generally more than enough for the average park home and of course you have cooling if you should want it in the summer. That’s 8 kilowatts of heat for 1.73 kilowatts used, your average kettle consumes 2 kilowatts!
“Our air to air heat pumps will work efficiently down to -20 degrees C, are whisper quite so no nuisance to your neighbours and take up little space. With a range of attractive floor- and wall-mounted units there has never been a better time to talk to Refali about keeping your park home warm in winter and cool in summer. We may not be able to feed the 5000 but we can definitely deliver you outstanding energy cost savings and a very comfortable environment to live in.”
Residentiel Vinyl Cladding
6/7 Hardwick Business Park, Hardwick Road, Great Gransden SG19 3BJ
T: 01767 676100
This company explains, “Our cladding was originally made in Canada, where it is used extensively to clad homes, schools, office buildings etc., to help with heat retention in these buildings, plus it is practically maintenance free.
“The type of cladding we supply looks like painted shiplap when installed, the product is strong, flexible, easy to fit – requiring no special tools to cut it, nor does it give off fibres when cut unlike some of the more rigid cladding.
“It comes in a range of colours with all the trims to match. It also has a 50-year guarantee against colour fade, the manufacturing process means that the colour goes right through the vinyl. The vinyl is a very green product requiring no painting, staining and is cheaper to install than wood.
“We can supply any amount, small or large, and will deliver to any part of the UK. We can also advise on the amount needed and the fitting requirements.
