Why is heating with Suntherm panels so effective?

There are three basic principles: Let us discuss them one by one.

1. Maximum transmission of heat with radiation
2. Equal placing of the sources of heat
3. Quality regulation

The simpliciy of the regulation is given by the structure of the panels, where the source of heat is a resistance with a large surface and with low output (350 W).

There are not changes from the source of heat (boiler) to the storage heaters (wires, radiators). The sources of heat are independent because of the structure of the Suntherm panels. The panels can be controlled one after the other, so every panel can change the temperature on its surface and its efficiency too.

The controllers make it possible to maintain different temperatures in different rooms. The whole controlling system is fairly sensitive, quick and saves on energy without human interference. In contrast with other sources of heat it is enough to build in 1/3 of output.

170 m3 with a storage heater stove 15-20 KW 170 m3 with Suntherm panels 5 KW The simplicity of the installation, the low costs of investment (compared to the conventional ways of heating), low operational costs, unlimited life time, high technical level make the Suntherm panels a long term way of heating.

 

1. Maximum transmission of heat with radiation

It is obvious that general feeling is not good when the temperature is 24 oC in the room and the walls are 16 oC . It is nicer when the walls are warmer (18 oC) and the air is 22 oC. It can be observed in winter too, when sense of heat is different in the shade and in the sun, although the temperature is the same. When speaking about heating, it originates from the fact that the radiant is a souce of heat. As far as efficiency is concerned we have to mention a small loss of heat after airing the room and the equality of the division of heat. Most of the radiating sources of heat are the radiating panels put on the ceiling. Other types of heating have not got enough warming surface or they cannot warm up the room entirely because of their placing.

 

2. Equal placing of the sources of heat

Of course, air- conditioning is the second principle for the technical experts. It is advantageous to put more sources of heat with low output equally in the room. The temperature of rooms is equal horizontally. Certain types of air - conditioning radiating panels put on ceilings, underfloor heating provide equal temperature.

 

3. Quality regulation

Controlling is the best known way of saving on energy. The regulator can be programmed and it helps the gain of heat to be included (eg: sunshine from the windows, working irons, cookers etc.) The regulator makes the reduction of temperature possible eg: at nights or when nobody is at home. The whole system must react quickly and with minimal difference. Those sources of heat are suitable to fulfil these requirements which can easily reach the proper temperature, which have enough reserve to follow the change of temperature on the surface, which make simple regulation possible, which do not depend on each other. The radiating heating panels meet these requirements. The traditional ways of heating (eg: floor heating or central heating) have to warm up a big mass (eg: the floor or the water int the radiators and in the boiler), the time - constant of the radiating panels is 900 seconds. The high temperature on the surface of the panels (max. 100 oC because the panels on the ceiling are out of reach) satisfies the needs of temperature.
