Why choose i-eco underfloor heating?
1 – INITIAL INVESTMENT
I-eco heating is a type of local heating, which do not require a boiler room, a chimney, or a fuel tank. They are therefore must cheaper than central heating systems. The cost of constructing a boiler room, chimney, and a fuel tank generally exceeds the full initial investment for our heating system.
If you invest your savings into photovoltaics, you will have free heating.
2 – HEATING EFFICIENCY (energy consumption)
Our heating has no energy loss characteristic for central systems (boiler heat loss, loss in transfer to the heat exchangers, loss on regulation). As an underfloor heating systems, it has an almost ideal temperature profile. The large heat exchanger allows an extremely low temperature regime. Regulation is direct and adjustable, for every space separately. In this manner, we fulfilled all conditions for maximum energy efficiency.
It is simply impossible to ensure quality heating with less energy! Heating costs are therefore also very low.
3 – MAINTENANCE COSTS
Regular maintenance: Regular maintenance is simply not required. This eliminates annual costs of maintenance for a boiler, fuel tank, chimney, and heat exchangers. Extraordinary maintenance (malfunctions) is rare and inexpensive.
4 – SERVICE LIFE (DURABILITY)
The projected service life of the heating strips exceeds 100 years.
The projected service life of the transformers exceeds 50 years.
Our heating system most likely has no competition in the maintenance costs and service life categories.
Conclusion: The system completely negates the relatively high energy (electricity) cost with a low initial investment, maximum energy efficiency, durability, and negligible maintenance costs.
With an extremely low temperature regime and enormous heat exchanger, this heating provides nothing but pure comfort. Living comfort was, in fact, our primary focus. The results are as follows:
– steady and balanced heat exchange
– even temperature distribution across the floor and throughout the room
– almost ideal temperature profile (warm feet and cool head)
– temperature regime setting for each room separately
– acceptability from the perspective of room design (no radiators)
– does not cause any noise, smells, dust circulation, or surface temperatures not suitable for contact
– good regulation features
– option of floor, wall, or combined installation.
The basic difference between “radiator” and underfloor heating is in the method of heat exchange. Floor heat exchangers radiate or transfer heat evenly, while radiators convert heat, i.e. exchange heat by air circulation. Thus, dust and biological growths, which generally develop on moist floors, are transferred into the room in addition to the heat. By heating and drying the floor, underfloor heating systems to a large degree prevent the development of such organisms.
Therefore: less dust, less mites, less bacteria, less allergies…
The system operates at a safe voltage of 3–48 V. Heating strips can be drilled through or wet without any consequences. Restoration of potential interruptions of strips is quite easy. An interruption can be located under the screed and flooring. There is no danger of spilling.
Electromagnetic radiation values are significantly below the permitted limits. For ease of mind, if so requested, we do not install heating strips below beds. Therefore, there is no harmful effect of EM radiation!
Adverse effects on the vascular system?
The system has an enormous heat exchanger and an appropriate, extremely low, temperature regime / operating temperature. The floor temperature is rooms where we spend most time is approximately 26ºC, which is a full 10ºC below body temperature.
The low temperature regime completely eliminates the possibility of a negative impact on the vascular system!
To illustrate: if you want to notice the warmth of the floor heated to 26ºC, you have to place one hand on the floor and the other on the wall.
The theory that underfloor heating can have a negative effect on the vascular system arose years ago, when the same boilers with a high-temperature heating regime were used for both underfloor and “radiator” heating.
