WHY RADIANT HEAT
Typically our buildings have been heated with radiators producing convection heat. This draws cold air from the floor, pulls it across the heat source where it warms and then rises to the ceiling, cools and returns to the floor to begin the cycle again. To feel the benefit, this circuit needs to repeat until the air mass is warmed which can be a slow and expensive process, dragging dust and dirt along with it. Open the door and the warm air escapes to start the process over again.
Our system uses infrared radiant heat instead. A far more natural source of warmth and one that bypasses the air and warms objects and people in a room. This provides a fast heat response and we feel far more comfortable more quickly. The objects in turn warm and release their own form of heat similar to the sun warming the sand on a beach.
As our system is electric it also reacts very quickly. No other form of heating reacts so fast.
EASY TO CONTROL
Our system simply lies behind the final skim of the plaster on the ceiling meaning that there are no additional trades required on site to install it. Simply connect via our 36v transformers and, after a few tests, we’re up and running. Energy Carbon has it’s own wifi enabled temperature control system which connects either directly or via an app. If required the system also sits alongside other systems such as Hive and Nest.
Every room in the house can have it’s own, simple to operate zone control and, as this is radiant, electric heating,the system clicks in and out as required keeping the comfort levels just right whilst minimising running costs and carbon emissions.
UNIQUE , TESTED AND PROVEN
Energy Carbon was developed in Germany in 2014 and has undergone rigorous testing and certification throughout that time. Part of the beauty of our product is in the quality, flexibility and ease of use of the heating ‘fleece’.
Whereas other radiant heat products may appear similar, ours is the only company able to produce a homogeneous, bonded and very thin material. Others use a laminated process trapping copper connections between a sandwich of plastic film. Tests have shown these to fail as the material ‘delaminates’ . This releases the connections causing issue. Energy Carbon is the only non-laminated material that can then have a safe and unique perforation allowing very easy application beneath the final skim of ceiling plaster with perfect results.
When the Energy Carbon Fleece is installed we can allow the siting of lighting and fixings up to 70mm, within the fabric with no issue.
