THE GREEN WAY

INFRA RED HEAT

Infra red radiant heating panels enjoy 10-year maintenance-free warranties.

 

Infra red radiant heating systems can be installed with the latest intelligent controls, giving users complete access to manage their comfort and expenditure.

 

Radiant heating can be a cost-efficient choice and when operated with solar power or on a renewable energy tariff, can be carbon neutral.

 

Radiant heating is health-promoting. Numerous medical research papers have concluded that Infra-red is beneficial in the treatment of; Asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Circulation problems, Skin ailments, and more.

Comparisons

 

Radiant heat is the original form of heating.  The warmth we enjoy from the sun is far infra-red radiant heat.

The sun’s invisible infrared rays not only warm us, but the objects around us as well.

Instead of heating the air - like traditional convection systems, radiant heating warms the very fabric of your building, you and your surroundings directly.

 

 Objects, including walls and floors that are in the direct pathway of the infrared rays, absorb the energy immediately, storing it in the mass of the item before radiating heat to other objects in the room.  The process is highly energy-efficient, capable of delivering significant cost savings.

Convection heating – Traditional central heating systems rely on convection which in turn relies on air as the vehicle to convey heat around a room. Air is a very low-level conductor, highly susceptible to draughts and open doors adding to the cost of sustaining a constant warm temperature.

 

Radiant heating – In contrast, Radiant heating relies on far Infra-red rays, which warm all objects (yourself or your surroundings), in their path.  As the heat reaches you directly, you feel the warmth straight away.  It is inherently a more efficient way to convey heat, and as some of the energy is stored in walls, floors, etc. this will also contribute to a room’s ambient thermal comfort just as the stones on a beach keep evening air temperatures warm long after the sun has set.

A HEALTHY OPTION

 

How does Radiant heating help?

We are 70% Water. Blood is 80% water. A 5-15 microns, Far Infra-red radiant heat is at a wavelength which matches that at which water naturally resonates, so it is a naturally efficient way to heat the body and in particular to assist blood circulation.

 

It is also widely recorded that radiant heat of this sort can have a therapeutic impact on conditions as diverse as Rheumatoid Arthritis,

Asthma, and skin complaints like acne.

RADIANT HEATING PANELS

 

All panels are independently certified by TUV Rheinland, a global leader in product testing and verification services.

 

The heating element in panels has been developed in conjunction with Hong Kong University. It’s construction stands it apart from competitors, delivering even heat distribution across the whole surface of the panel.

 

           The panels are sized and designed for wall or ceiling mounting. All elements enjoy a full 10-year warranty.

 

CONTROL, COMFORT & COST

 

The panels can be controlled simply and easily, to meet your personal requirements.

LEVEL 1

Simple traditional thermostat control, room by room.

LEVEL 3

Centralised control by room and or zone with Phone App connectivity allowing you to pass instructions to the system on the move

LEVEL 2

A more contemporary alternative look to thermostats, with colour screen and scroller

LEVEL 4

Includes all of Level 3 benefits plus a monitoring service permitting the download of energy usage, £ spend reports and more besides

TRADITIONAL CONVECTION HEATING VS INNOVATIVE RADIANT HEATING

 

Based on typical domestic consumption values and 2014 prices

Gas, Oil, Electric Storage,

Heaters

• Safety issues, particularly gas and oil

• Limited controllability

• Slow response. Systems tend to take time to warm up or cool down

• Fossil fuels – non-renewable

• Space-hungry, little scope to position efficiently

• Long-term price volatility

• High servicing/maintenance costs

• Storage heaters in particular have a history of inefficiency.

Innovative Infra-Red

• Radiant heating is efficient. It heats you not the air round you!

• Reduced safety issues

• Completely controllable

• Fast response. Very quick to warm up and to cool down

• Given choice of renewable tariff or by linking to solar panels, Infra-red is sustainable

• Size and weight permit full flexibility of positioning.

• Electricity, through the potential to link to renewable sources, is the least volatile long-term option.

• Minimal servicing and maintenance.

Medium house for example, £1153 x 66%, UK households living in this type of property spent £760.98 on heating in 2014.

These figures are a guide only, as the variables affecting each individual property’s energy performance are too numerous to be practical in this type of illustration.
