Why is electric heating energy efficient and environmentally friendly

Monday, March 28, 2022

Comfortable room temperature with the lowest possible energy consumption.

With electric heating you’ll achieve a comfortable room temperature with the lowest possible energy consumption. Thanks to heat distribution from the floor and precise temperature control with a thermostat, room temperature can be reduced by 1-2 °C on average compared to traditional radiator heating, without influencing the thermal comfort or even improving it. This enables reducing energy losses, from a building by up to 20%, which is both economically and environmentally beneficial.

Highest possible heat efficiency

99% of the energy consumed by the Electric Underfloor Heating is converted into heat thus maximizing its energy efficiency and avoiding unnecessary energy losses by having to circulate water for instance. Due to the precise control with a thermostat, the system (consisting of heating element and thermostat) will keep temperature at the desired level.

With the integrated timer function in the thermostats, you can plan the heating for the room to your desire potentially using “low cost electricity” or on demand heating for additional savings.

Fast reaction of a system

With electric heating you’ll get a fast reaction of a system ensuring that you get a quick result. The system is functioning only when needed - it achieves the required temperature quickly depending on the floor construction. With the quick responding system, your rooms could be heated only when in use providing an amazing savings option. 

Independent control of temperature regulation

The temperature regulation of the room is independently controlled. For users it means high level of user independence from part to total.
Remote control meaning that each location (or so-called “heating zone”) can be controlled separately, enables rooms not in use to be switched off with less impact on the environment and cost savings.

Exceptionally high level of energy utilization

The right output of a heating element is normally chosen based on the required heating output necessary to compensate the heat loss of the building / room/ etc.

Together, the positioning of the source of heat under the floor and very precise thermostatic control ensure an exceptionally high level of energy utilization. As you make most of your heat, you can safely reduce the temperature and with that - the energy consumption.

Environmental friendliness

Electric heating contributes to the increased use of renewables reducing emissions. It can help making grids smarter when combined with modern controls, thus facilitating renewable energy consumption due to our modern and intelligent controls.
Compared to other heating systems, electric heating doesn’t contain any harmful substances.
The environmental performance of Electric Heating appliances can be improved if they are coupled with solar panels or other green and renewable energy sources. In fact, those appliances are particularly suited for Renewable Energy Sources, offering the possibility of emission-free heat generation.

Ideal heating system for an ideal world

Electric Heating turns dream to reality
If you think of an ideal world – try to imagine an ideal heating system. What should it be? Or what we expect from it?
