What are the advantages of using ceiling-mounted radiant heating panels and sails over alternative forms of heating.
Radiant panels only deliver heat where required, warming only the solid objects in their line of sight, such as furniture and people. Therefore, the panels minimise fabric and filtration losses on outer walls and ceilings. Comfort is delivered at lower air temperatures than with radiators, meaning lower energy consumption and lower heating costs.
The technology of radiant panels ensures fast response times to changes in heating load demands and other factors affecting the temperature of the room. They are also easily zones, so that each room can be adjusted to individual comfort levels without the need for structural insulated partitions.
The panels ensure that the air is healthier than with forced-air systems because there’s no distribution of dust, pollutants, bacterium of viruses.
In addition, as the panels are ceiling-mounted, they eliminate any risk of people bumping into them, interfering with them or getting burned and there is no wear-and-tear on the surfaces.
As the panels come in various different styles, sizes and installation formats, they can be integrated with the ceiling so discreetly that they’re barely noticeable, or can be shaped or coloured to make a bold design statement.
Radiant heating panels can be connected to alternative energy sources, such as biomass boilers, solar panels and heat pumps or combination of all of these.
The panels can also serve a dual purpose as they provide cooling, a practical advantage in terms of cost and energy efficiency.
