Why are radiant panel heaters are so effective and efficient?
Some technical notes and an explanation of how radiant heaters work
The compensated printed circuit technology of the Conservatory Furnishings & Interiors heaters produces radiant heat like the sun. Radiant heat warms people,
objects and walls so you feel the warmth equally around your environment.
The radiant heat waves from a compensated printed circuit are measured
at approximately 8 microns, close to the 9.5 microns wavelength of heat
radiated by the human body. Heat produced this way feels comfortable
Other radiant heat sources wavelengths are: -
|Compensated Printed circuit
|Walls of room @ 20° C
|Walls of room @ 15° C
The relatively long waves created by the Conservatory Furnishings & Interiors heaters
do not pass through glass but are reflected back into the room. Heat waves
are both absorbed and reradiated by walls and furniture and other objects
in the room, keeping the heat where it is needed.
Convector heaters such as oil filled radiators heat the air around them,
which then rises, and stays near the ceiling where it does little good.
Heat escapes where air escapes and is a total waste of your money
and will greatly increase you electricity casts.
Conventional convector heaters operate at a temperature in excess of
270° C and burn oxygen and micro particles in the air (e.g. dust
and pollen) and cause a sensation of excessive dryness. The Conservatory Furnishings & Interiors radiant heater operates on a completely different principle (heat
beams or waves) and operates below 270° C and therefore avoids this
This is a serious consideration for those who suffer from any
sort of breathing disabilities, asthma etc, the infirm and elderly.
The Conservatory Furnishings & Interiors radiant heaters may be used in any room in the
house except bathrooms. They are an effective replacement for storage
heaters and can be an effective whole house heating system when used
with plug in timers to deliver heat in a controlled and timely way.
They are a perfect supplementary heater for rooms being used for periods
when the main central heating system is switched off, avoiding the
need for the whole house to be heated.
