Radiant Ceiling Heating uses low temperature electric heating film installed in the ceiling to provide a natural, comfortable indoor heating warmth at low cost. It is rated at 200W/m2.
Ceiling Heating is suitable for both new build and renovation projects. It provides an ideal heat source in domestic applications in small rooms (i.e attic conversions) as well as whole house heating. In the commercial environment it is ideal to heat larger rooms in shops, offices, school class rooms and corridors where it provides excellent heat distribution and obstruction free room layouts.
Radiant Ceiling Heating is installed out of sight in the ceiling. The heating film is installed above the plasterboard, creating space in rooms for freedom of design and planning.
Ceiling Heating operates using the large surface area of the ceiling at relatively low temperatures. This ensures that the rooms air remains fresh and condensation free, with no feeling of dryness. Being a radiant heat source no warm air convection currents are created which reduces the distribution of dust especially beneficial for asthma sufferers.
