Wall heating is very similar to floor heating in terms of principle of operation and operating conditions. The advantages of this method are large-scale radiant heat and particularly the capability of a rapid response and thus faster room heating. These properties make wall heating a viable solution for a wide range of applications such as health care, industry, public buildings as well as private homes.
Another possibility of use is special areas where it is necessary to prevent dew formation on the walls (swimming pools, baths).
Due to the heat radiation from the wall and owing to almost ideal temperature distribution it is possible to reduce the room temperature by 3 oC – 4 oC and any room temperature reduction by 1 oC represents energy saving of 6 %.
In the areas where wall heating is installed, there is no piping which allows greater flexibility of interior equipment and visual expansion of the room. The great advantage of wall heating is its use as separate heating but also as a supplement to floor heating.
