German engineered infra-red heating

The Energy Carbon infra-red heating was originally developed in partnership with the University of Stuttgart who were charged with trying to create an energy efficient heating system which was effective, easy to install, and completely safe. Using industry waste materials, the University engineered a far infra-red heating system which was sustainable, had great carbon reducing credentials, and produced radiant heat which could travel up to three and a half metres.

The technology has proven popular with homeowners. 100,000 linear metres of carbon fleece far infra-red heating have been fitted to date and when tested, the system has proved to be extremely efficient and a viable alternative to gas and air source heat pumps.

Safe, efficient, and cost-effective heating for new-builds and property renovations


In general, people are often uncomfortable implementing new technologies into their homes. Safety is a concern and people want to feel reassured that they are not creating a potentially dangerous situation in their home by installing a radical new product. Because the idea of carbon far infra-red heating is relatively new, it was essential that the product underwent rigorous testing to ensure safety & efficiency.

The German experts who developed this heating system have spent six years testing the product to ensure that it is 100% ready for installation. To give homeowners peace of mind that carbon far infra-red heating is completely safe, it has been TUV tested and has CE mark approval which is recognised across Europe. Energy Carbon heating systems also come with a 10-year manufacturers’ warranty and zero failures have been reported in over 1,000 home installations.

In 2020, Energy Carbon became the first UK company to thoroughly proof test it’s IR heating system with the Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) the results of which exceeded our expectations.


Ceiling heating for effective warmth distribution

Energy Carbon heating systems can be installed into the ceilings, walls or floor of a room. The super thin design allows fitting behind the plasterboard (DRYTEC) or within the plaster itself (FLEECE).  When activated via a Smart phone or wall-mounted thermostat, heat is radiated from the panels to heat up objects in the room directly.

Traditional heating systems work on a convection system where radiators and floors draw cold air from the below, heat it so that it rises to the ceiling, where it cools, falls to the floor and the process continues in a loop. This process has been found to be slow, expensive, and ineffective. Once a door is opened, the heat escapes and the process starts again.

With far infra-red heating, the radiant heat warms objects and people in the room instead of the air itself. This in turn release additional heat and the room is kept at a far more comfortable temperature in a more natural way.
