tHE BENEFITS OF TRADITIONAL HEATING IN ONE LOW-ENERGY, FLEXIBLE PACKAGE
HEAT & COST COMPARISONS
Heating at low voltages is not only safe, but is also efficient and reliable.
This provides savings in running and installation costs.
Why is redheat low voltage?
Voltage Squared divided by resistance equals power which is measured in Watts. Most Carbon Film or Heating Cables are around 60 to 80 ohms resistance across a 60 cm sheet. Redheat is on average just between 4 and 12 ohms ! Resistance is exactly as it sounds to stop or resist flow from one thing to another. In this instance we are using heat.
This is why other far infrared products, including panels, have to have a 240 volt supply
Also Redheat covers 95% of the area with its patented graphite mix. In comparison FAR Infrared and Wire Mats cover 2% to 4% and Carbon Film around 60% coverage. A Infra Red Panel is also on average 2%.
Because of this Redheat saves between 15% to 24% in running costs and gives a constant consistent temperature.
how can redheat save you money?
Heating at low voltage is not only safe, but is also efficient and reliable. Redheat provides significant savings in both running and installation costs.
Average savings between conventional and infrared heating
Let’s consider this carefully for a moment – power (kWh), costs 12p per unit, while mains gas costs 4p per unit. It may be easy to simply go with these numbers and give a badge of honour to mains gas as being a highly economical solution; however, the comparison (and benefits) must be understood at length.
How is comfortable room temperature maintained ? For those using a regular gas heating system, the thermostat is typically set around 20 degrees C, which is what the ambient temperature would need to be in order for the occupant to feel reasonably warm. Since infrared heating systems heat up solid objects, including the occupant as our bodies attract infrared rays, the ambient air temperature is entirely irrelevant – it could be well below zero but the occupant would still feel more than adequately warm due to the far infrared rays.
This inevitably means that even if you set the thermostat on your infrared heating system significantly lower than 20 degrees C, you would still feel comfortably warm. At the end of the day, you are looking at marked energy savings. Please see below for more savings.
