Functional principle of foil heating
Calorique heating film works similar to our sun. The heating elements emit infrared warmth. In contrast to conventional heating systems, Calorique heats the surfaces of the objects in the room. This principle we know as surface heating.
Therefore, we offer the following advantages typical for surface heating:
The surfaces warmed by infrared heat give off heat.
The energy required will not waste by heating the air, which turns very inefficient.
The heating film warms the surfaces in the surrounding area and the difference to the room temperature stays very low. It prevents potential condensation and mold and germ growth.
The energy output of the heating surface will be nearly proportional to the temperature difference between the heating surface temperature and the room temperature. At a higher room temperature, the energy output of the heating surface decreases.
For example, if the room temperature increases with a floor surface temperature of 22 ° C due to sunlight in a room of 20 ° C to 21 ° C, the heat output reduces by half. Conversely, the lowering of the room temperature increases the energy output.
Foil heating with individual room control plus self-regulating effect
The Calorique foil heater works in a similar way to our sun. The heating elements emit infrared heat. In contrast to conventional heating systems, the Calorique heating system warms up the surfaces of objects in the room. This principle is called surface heating.
Individual room control reduces the difference between the heating surface temperature and the temperature of the respective room. The smaller this difference, the better the self-regulating effect, i.e., the self-regulating effect achieves its greatest effect in combination with individual room regulation.
The energy-saving effect of surface heating is based on its optimum temperature level: the floor temperature is between 22 and 23°C.
Even with an outside temperature of minus 15°C, a surface temperature of 24°C is sufficient for cozy warmth.
With surface heating, the average temperature of floor and wall surfaces is 1-2°C higher than the air temperature. And every degree of reduction in air temperature saves around 6% of energy. The intelligent individual room control with a clock thermostat also contributes to cost and energy savings with surface heating. The foil heating from Calorique® not only guarantees the greatest possible comfort but also protects the environment and your wallet.
