Spectrum Radiant Panels save energy and money by achieving a higher perceived temperature than the actual room temperature and offer an unobtrusive design. Modern heating and cooling is all about people and providing a comfortable environment for occupants. However, with issues such energy efficiency becoming increasingly important in delivering a heating and cooling system which offers an effective building performance for occupants and also saves energy and money, is paramount in the choice of an optimum heating/cooling solution.
How do radiant panels work?
Radiant heat is a form of electromagnetic radiation, between ultra violet and infra-red on the electromagnetic spectrum. These electromagnetic waves penetrate the air with no loss of energy and this energy is only converted to instant heat when it comes into contact with any object of a lower temperature, warming anyone or anything in close proximity. If the radiant panels are heated by hot water this subsequently gives off energy to the room. This energy is converted into heat only when it comes into contact with the human body or other objects. This is identical to the way in which the direct sunlight on a cold winter’s day produces warmth and makes us feel comfortable. As a result radiant ceiling panels provide a pleasant and comfortable warmth at ground level, even when installed at a height of 30 metres. There are many radiant panels available on the market but the concept is the same. Water is distributed through an aluminum panel via waterways attached to the rear.
Radiant panels offer many benefits:
Create a more comfortable environment for occupants by creating an even temperature distribution across the room. Save energy and money by achieving a higher perceived temperature than the actual room temperature. Works well with lower temperature heating systems and provide an efficient solution offering a short heating and cooling time. Our panels are Installed within a ceiling or high on a wall and they maximise wall and floor space with silent operation and a no dust/bacteria dispersal offering a hygienic, maintenance free solution with lower cleaning costs.
