Large-scale heating systems have several common features and advantages. The name itself reveals that the heat radiated from a large area. What advantages does this fact bring?
- Radiant heat is more natural and we perceive it as more pleasant and comfortable.
- The temperature distribution is uniform throughout the room.
- Heating costs are lower.
- Media consumption is lower, which is more ecological.
- Large-area heating systems are „invisible“, which affects the overall design of the rooms.
Perhaps the best-known alternative to classic heating is underfloor heating. The unsightly radiators suddenly disappeared somewhere and nobody missed them. Only occasionally did the visitor stop to notice that the furniture is nicely arranged in the room and there is a comfortable sofa or a reading area under the window instead of a white metal object. Like everything in the world, this type of heating has one small disadvantage, in addition to many advantages. These are certain limitations when choosing a floor covering.
Like floor heating, wall heating and cooling is discreetly installed under the surface. However, the area of the walls is larger compared to the floor, which means that the heat radiates from a larger area and also surrounds us from all sides. In this way, you can heat at a lower temperature, save money and space that would otherwise be occupied by radiators or tiled stoves.
Are you thinking how is it possible that heat can „fall down“? The truth, of course, is that warm air rises because it is lighter. But radiant heat spreads in all directions. It is transmitted from the ceiling, heating solid objects (such as furniture) and secondarily also the surrounding air. In addition, you can also use ceiling heating systems for cooling in the summer, which is:
- more natural
- less dusty
- works without drafts
