With recent data showing that the state of the nation’s mental and physical health is an ongoing concern, a major consumer event next month is set to showcase ways in which the outdoors can improve the wellbeing of people of all ages. 

For last year’s Mental Health Awareness Day, statistics were released showing that one in four people in the UK experience a mental health problem every year and that the most common mental health condition is anxiety. It also demonstrated that half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14 and that three quarters of all mental health problems are established by the age of 24.

Tempheat: The solution to that broken boiler problem

Tempheat from IDEA

Wherever you go away, you may forget the other half and you may even forget the kids, but definitely don’t forget your Tempheat from IDEA!

We have all been in the situation, where the boiler has packed up, everyone’s moaning in their jumpers and blankets, and there is not much that anyone can do about it.

Well, my name is Keith, and after many years of repairing those central heating boilers and having to leave customers without heating and hot water because of having to wait for parts. I decided to invent a unit that could replace the boiler until the parts for the boiler could be found and fitted.
