ThermaSkirt - the best kept secret in the heating industry..

Established in 2008, DiscreteHeat have been making noise within the heating industry. Martin Wadsworth (Managing Director) appearing on Dragons Den in September 2008 changed the course of how we would go on to use heating systems in the most eco-friendly way possible. Grab a chance to watch the episode here.

Our revolutionary ThermaSkirt system has recently achieved significant recognition, receiving the Commercial HVAC Product of the Year Award at H&V News 2023 and Sustainable Product of the Year Award from the Greater Manchester Chamber 2023. Recognized all the way back to 2012 at the National Heat Pump Awards, our system secured the Most Innovative Product of the Year Award. These accolades represent our dedication to delivering excellence in the field and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the heating sector.

ThermaSkirt is not merely a heating system; it embodies a pledge to sustainability. This groundbreaking technology works with air and ground source, biomass, and solar thermal systems.

ThermaSkirt has and is being placed within a number of renewable hubs up and down the country to promote the energy efficiency of the product, demonstrating how the product works and the benefits for each household, company, healthcare unit, etc.

DiscreteHeat have teamed up with Salford University Energy House, installing ThermaSkirt within one detached house placed within the environmental chamber. The built environment accounts for 40% of the UK’s carbon footprint and to achieve net zero will require a step change in the design of new buildings but also, more importantly, it will require a comprehensive upgrade and retrofit programme to the existing housing stock; the UK Green Building Council estimates that 80% of the 2050 building stock has already been built. Statistics will be available soon.

Over the years’ DiscreteHeat have been seen more frequently on Home TV Makeover programmes, spreading the word of our systems. Watch George Clarke and Barrat Developments discuss how they use ThermaSkirt within their new builds here.

As the use of our products continues to rise and word spreads, DiscreteHeat has started to generate business on a global scale, supplying ThermaSkirt heating systems to Western Europe, Australia, South America and ever more frequently to the USA.

The two principal forms of room space heating - conventional radiators and under floor heating (UFH) - now have an established, dynamic and innovative alternative in ThermaSkirt - The Skirting Board that Heats Your Home.
