How does the radiant (infra-red) heating system work?
On the same principle as the Sun. We all know that heat flows up. But radiant infra-red heat generated by the carbon films, unlike the conventional one (a common radiator that heats up air) falls down and heats up objects in the room. First of all, it heats up people, then floor or furniture. Air is heated up from the hot objects. This type of heating is more comfortable for people in the entire building. And also more cost-saving.
When does it pay off to use the heating carbon film?
The solution based on the heating carbon film is best chosen for well thermally insulated buildings, preferaby as early as in the designing stage, when it is possible to take into account and meet all requirements as a whole. This is the only way to guarantee your satisfaction in all regards.
What parameters make the heating films better than the underfloor heating system?
There are several of them. The operation of the heating films is cheaper as you do not need any (gas/electric) boiler or a heat pump. This eliminates the facilities requiring regular maintenance. You have to neither bear in mind revisions of the chimney nor worry about the plumbing. A great advantage is a much simpler installation.
Why choose the heating film for the floor and not a heating cable?
The heating film is evenly distributed in the floor (without gaps), which means that it better transfers heat onto the floor surface. Thermal control is also more precise. The heating cable can be installed only in the concrete layer. The heating film is installed directly under the flooring with all types of floor coverings (except for tiles). In addition, the installation of the film is much easier on principle and also faster in terms of your house construction.
Why choose the heating film for the floor and not a heat pump?
A heat pump makes sense only in the case of specific installations such a very large house, a heating system for a pool, etc. The heat pump option can be economically viable in the case of a subsidy as well. In the remaining cases you have to consider the follow-up servicing costs and problems related to the heat pump. On the other hand, the carbon film will serve you faithfully for its entire service life and will not get in your way or take your time in any manner.
Are heating films also suitable for apartments?
Definitely yes. They are a perfect solution for example for bathrooms where you want to have the floor heated up at the lowest possible cost.
Is the capacity of the heating films sufficient to heat up an old house?
It depends in particular on the ability of the house to retain the heat inside. A higher performance will be definitely necessary. We will be pleased to make an analysis for you.
When choose the ceiling heating system and where is the underfloor heating system more appropriate?
The ceiling system is installed in the suspended ceiling in case the floor has already been finished and we do not want to make a new one. Installation in the suspended ceiling is faster, easier in terms of labour and construction work, where necessary.
Is this heating source suitable for houses with a higher level of dampness?
Yes. The carbon films also warm up walls, which contributes to their drying and preventing formation of moulds.
Are the heating films suitable for installetion under a linoleum, parquet floor, wooden or plastic floating floor, tiles, vinyl or carpets?
Yes. It is possible to install the heating film under all these floor coverings with excellent results.
What if my apartment is flooded out (due to my or my neighbours' fault)?
The carbon film and for example the floating floor is insulated by a moisture barrier during the installation of the system, rejecting all fuilds.
Can it damage my floor?
The films in the floor do not attain any extreme temperatures. The temperature can be controlled and adjusted for the respective floor covering.
Are the heating films harmful to human health (infra-red radiation)?
No, they are not. This heating system is very similar to the heat generated by the Sun.
What if I drill a hole through the carbon film by mistake?
The respective centimetre wide band will stop heating but the rest will continue working without problems. A more serious problem would arise if you drilled through the copper strip (power supply).
Do you carry out installations outside the Czech republic region?
Yes. We install the films anywhere across entire Europe.
Why does it seem to be cheaper than other methods of heating?
The reason is that it is cheaper. Cheaper than a majority of heating systems. Considering the basic parameters such as the investment and operating costs, speed and method of installation, precise and easy control, no failures and worries, absolutely no maintenance, no chimney and its revisions, no dangerous gas, no heat exchangers or any other facilities occupying the space in your house – you will not find any similar high-quality alternative for modern living at a comparable price.
