About DiscreteHeat Co Ltd
Since ThermaSkirt was presented on BBC’s Dragons Den in 2008 I am pleased to say that we have now supplied over 10,000 domestic ThermaSkirt systems. In addition to this, ThermaSkirt has also been specified on many prestigious installations within the NHS, Schools, Care Homes and other public spaces around the world.
Featuring more and more on DIY & TV makeover programs has also helped raise brand awareness, whilst our involvement in the Governments Green Deal, Retrofit for the Future and the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme is an important milestone in the companies’ development.
The two principal forms of room space heating – conventional radiators and under floor heating – now have an established, dynamic and innovative competitor in ThermaSkirt.
More recently, our move into Solar Thermal manufacturing by the acquisition of the Solar Twin manufacturing facility – now marketed under the ‘ThermaTwin’ name - has seen our horizons broaden considerably. With over 3,000 of these panels installed across the UK, the efficiency, cost effectiveness and reliability of these systems in providing truly ‘free’ hot water is unrivalled.
Providing simple, reliable and above all, energy efficient heating solutions is what DiscreteHeat is all about.
DiscreteHeat now manufacture solar thermal panels.
ThermaSkirt has featured on TV deisgn and makeover shows, the world over
DiscreteHeat & ThermaSkirt® is the eco friendly heating solution. ThermaSkirt is a new and innovative way of heating your room. ThermaSkirt makes the most of a skirting board and radiator and turns it into effective, eco-friendly heating. Designed and manufactured in the UK by DiscreteHeat Company Limited, the system replaces your skirting boards and radiators in one. ThermaSkirt will work with existing conventional boilers as well as renewable technologies such as solar, ground source and air source heat pumps.
DiscreteHeat's ThermaSkirt® has been tested by BSRIA fully complies with BS-EN 442 & carries the CE mark. In a like for like test against radiators ThermaSkirt was shown to be at least 13% more energy efficient. With the correct boiler & control system, fuels savings of up to 25% are possible with ThermaSkirt.
In test, ThermaSkirt was proven to be the most efficient form of heating, giving the best uniform heat distribution, with only a ±1°C variation, compared to a radiator with a massive 13°C variation.

The effect of ThermaSkirt is indistinguishable from under-floor heating in that it heats the room from all sides and at low level and yet it is as simple to fit as a radiator. As ThermaSkirt is as slim and discrete as a skirting board, it takes up no wall or floor space. Because ThermaSkirt is above ground, it can be used with any floor construction or coving including timber and carpet and warms up the room quickly.
DiscreteHeat has developed a complete range of patented push fit components so that any competent DIY enthusiast or local plumber (or joiner!) can fit the system quickly. ThermaSkirt even connects to existing systems and is ideal for both new build, extension and refurbishment applications.
ThermaSkirt uses a unique aluminium alloy material that is 5 times more effective than steel at passing heat & can run efficiently at temperatures as low as 35°C & as high as 75°C.
Over 10,000 ThermaSkirt systems have been successfully installed to date.

Discrete Heat Acquires Solar Thermal Panel Manufacturer
Over 200 solar thermal systems installed at Bourneville Village Trust
DiscreteHeat is pleased to announce the purchase of the Solar Twin manufacturing facility, which will be re-located to the company’s factory in Atherton, Greater Manchester.
On the market for over 13 years and with over 2,500 Solar Twin systems successfully installed, the Solar Twin product will be marketed under the DiscreteHeat banner, under the new name of ‘ThermaTwin’.
ThermaTwin is a unique flat plate solar thermal collector, which uses the power of the sun to heat the water and power the pump and controls. As a result the system is completely off-grid and maximises the total energy available to service the needs of the home, whilst reducing the carbon consumed during operation to effectively zero. ThermaTwin offers a robust, practical and affordable solution to your hot water and heating requirements and with the RHI feed in tariff recently announced at 19.2p per kwH, the product offers a very affordable solution that meets the payback Golden Rule.
