A dynamic South Coast start-up, Energy Carbon, has won the exclusive contract to distribute cutting-edge German heating technology to the UK.
Energy Carbon supplies fast, cost-effective, and energy-efficient heating technology, developed over six years by experts from the University of Stuttgart, working alongside one of Germany’s largest industrial corporations, renowned for their high-tech solutions.
By harnessing the power of infrared, Energy Carbon’s innovative products provide heat to the objects in a room, rather than the empty space, meaning homeowners can switch it on and feel the benefits more quickly.
Heating fleece just 0.4mm thick can be easily plastered into the ceiling, or placed directly behind plasterboard, to provide the same sort of healthy, infrared heat that babies receive in incubators – all while remaining totally invisible to the building’s occupants.
Nick Gander, Founder and Director, commented: “For years, we’ve been hugely passionate about the potential of infrared. As societies, we’re on a mission to drastically cut the amount of carbon we produce between now and 2050.
“Heating accounts for more greenhouse gas emissions than any other source – 37% of the UK’s total – and if every heating system in the country was replaced with infra-red, that figure would be dramatically reduced.
“In the beginning, infra-red technology wasn’t without its problems. It could delaminate and fail, or develop unsafe hot spots. But over years of intensive research and development, our German partners have solved those issues.
“In January of this year, we were extremely excited to be able to bring this exciting, cost-competitive heating technology to housebuilders around the UK – but of course, coronavirus disrupted those plans.
“Now, though, the situation has stabilised, and we’re forging ahead.
“We know there’s no one single ‘magic bullet’ solution to low-carbon heating – the eco-friendly homes of the future will inevitably use a variety of different heating technologies.
“But we believe that infra-red heating will play a critical role in making Britain’s homes more energy-efficient than ever before.
“We’re already seeing huge interest in the product we provide, and if you’d be interested in learning more, we’d be delighted to hear from you!”
There are a range of initiatives that are encouraging manufacturers and specifiers to think about how they work and the products they use – one manufacturer championing these is Danish wood wool panel manufacturer Troldtekt.Posted in Articles, Building Industry News, Building Products & Structures, Building Regulations & Accreditations, Building Systems, Research & Materials Testing, Sustainability & Energy Efficiency, Timber Buildings and Timber Products, Walls, Wooden products
