How do Suntherm panels save on energy?

Infrared rays radiating from the panels and their reflection from the walls and the furniture ensure a nice sense of heat, even if the temperature is 2-4 oC lower than it is considered to be nice at the conventional heating technology.

The plaster gets warm and so called 'heat curtain' developes. The heat radiated by the Suntherm panels does not spur out of the window, so additional savings can be attained. It is enough to build in 80 % output of the traditional heating technology, as the low output of the panels and their equal division in the room make it possible to decrease the built - in output.

The maximum output can be reached quickly (approx. within 30-40 minutes),which makes the regulation at a lower temperature possible.

Compared to the traditional heating saving reached by the Suntherm panels can be 30 %, in a period of transition it can be 60 %.


Savings of energy can be considerably higher with using Suntherm panels in local heating, eg: in offices, in cash points, directed the radiation to one's back or feet.

How to quantify the panel needs?

1. The loss of heat must be quantified in the rooms.

2. The proper type of panel must be chosen in accordance with the altitude of the room. for rooms with 3-4,5 meters altitude 500 W for max. 3 m high rooms 350 W

3. The number of the Suntherm panels is the proportion of the built - in output and the titular output of the particular type. Where the loss of heat is 0,7-0,8 W/m2K, 30-35 W/m3 output must be built in. Convectional way of heating Radiating heating


Electric heating panels - the long term and effective way of heating

One of the human's basic physiolgical needs is the nice temperature. Therefore when planning buildings special attention must be turned to it. However, it is accompained by high costs as far as the investment and the operation are concerned, that is why efficiency of heating becomes a very important factor in the value of the building.

Improvement can be observed in the field of insulation of windows and doors, new sources of heat have been developed. Heating panels belong to the new sources. These are 37 mm thick and 0,25-0,5 m2 boards. They can be placed on the ceilings or they can be parts of the sunk. In contrast with the conventional ways of heating (their logic is that heat spreads upwards). Suntherm panels must be fixed on the ceiling, as they radiate heat in a different way.

The traditional heating systems are supposed to warm the air of the room, and then the warmed - up air heats the walls and the articles streaming around them. According to this way, the air is always warmer than the walls and the articles.

The radiating panels transmit heat in a reversal way, first of all with radiation (7-10 µ m wavelength infrared radiation). The radiated heat originates from the high heat emission of the surface (0,94-0,98).

The radiating panels - as well as the sun- warm up the walls, the articles and the people at first, then the walls and the article heat the air in the room. That is why the panels must be put on the ceiling, because in this way they can heat the maximum space.
