The decarbonising electrical grid
The electrical grid is rapidly decarbonising due to the increased role of renewable technologies within its energy mix. This is making electric heating solutions, such as direct acting panel heating, increasingly specifiable for meeting the heating requirements of a space, especially with the electrification of heat to meet stricter environmental targets.
High energy efficiency
Direct acting panel heaters are 100% efficient at the point of use and can be specified with a range of electronic controls to maximise operation. Accurate thermostats combined with low-inertia products mean that a room can be held at the temperature required without temperature ‘drift’, increasing thermal comfort.
Cost effective flexibility
Due to simplified installation processes compared to alternative systems, electric solutions can often provide many installation benefits, including cost savings. The ‘greener grid’ also allows for a single service to be introduced into a building, as electrical connections cover the needs for the heating as well as energy for appliances.
Why choose electric panel heating for your next project?
Lower capital costs
Removed need for gas
No required pipework
No oversized plant
Faster build time
Greater design flexibility
Lower overheating risk
No complex billing arrangements or heat meters
No risk of leaks
No service / maintenance costs
No flue runs or boiler condensate pipework
Direct acting panel heating
one part of a residential electrical solution
Combining panel heating with a hot water heat pump provides a low carbon solution for heating and hot water which includes an on-site renewable contribution. For apartments, this will also remove the need for a central plant for heating requirements, as the production of hot water is generated in each local apartment, through a single energy source.
