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.

control of eight independent temperature circles
How to quantify the panel
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
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

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
The radiating panels transmit heat in a reversal
way, first of all with radiation (7-10 Âµ 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.
