Comparison with other convective heating systems
* The high efficiency of infra-red radiation when heating room spaces is an energy-saving alternative to conventional convection-based heaters (e.g. water-filled wall radiators) and is ideally suited for heating interiors. Pleasant radiation of heat ensures a comfortable and healthy living climate.
Temperature curve measurement of NAXIS infra-red panel
Rapid heating to a meaningful, perceptible radiation temperature (60 ° -70 °C) guarantees a high annual efficiency level with correspondingly high emissivity. As a result, the required floor and wall temperatures which are necessary for thermal comfort can be achieved more quickly than with sluggish heating systems. Heat storage takes place preferably in the wall.
Our NAXIS infra-red panels reach the necessary radiation temperatures significantly faster with lower energy consumption by comparison with the products of other suppliers.
For example, an established competitor specifies a heat-up time of 5 minutes for a heating panel to reach 60 °C and this is stated as being particularly efficient. Its stated specific outputs are also higher; both factors result in higher electricity consumption compared to our NAXIS infra-red heating panels and thus considerably reduce annual efficiency.
The graph below shows the temperature curve of a NAXIS infra-red heating panel. The measurements were carried out at TÜV SÜD (Technical Inspection Agency – South).
Mode of operation/advantages of infra-red heaters
In infra-red heaters, molecular vibrations generate energy waves. These long-wave vibrations release energy which we perceive as heat. The ensuring thermal radiation has a positive effect on people and is variously used as a means of medical therapy (infra-red radiation for ENT, infra-red cabin).
Conventional heaters primarily heat up the ambient air which involves an extremely high energy requirement. In contrast, infra-red heaters heat up the walls and objects in the room which store the heat considerably longer than the air. The walls give off the heat as secondary radiation and send it back into the room. As a result we get a pleasant, comforting feeling of warmth. The infra-red heat radiation dries out the masonry – thus excluding moisture and any mould formation this might cause.
