Radiant heating is the form of warmth most comfortable to humans, whether from the sun, a burning fireside or today’s energy efficient, discreet heating systems.

With radiant heating appliances, we use the radiant principle to directly heat objects, surfaces and people, rather than having to warm the air first.  This prevents wasteful heat stratification associated with convection of warm air, typical of traditional heating systems.  Many people expect heat to rise, but in fact it is only warm air that rises because warm air is lighter than cold air.  Warming the air creates a convection current with hot air rising to the top of the room.  The rising warm air is replaced by cold air and this creates a convection flow.  With convection heating, such as traditional wall mounted radiators, much of the heat is lost to the unoccupied upper space of a room.  In fact, the air temperature may increase as much as 3⁰C for each vertical meter in a room.  CJ2 Innov Design Radiant Heating appliances emit up to 75% of the heat output in the form of radiated heat.  Thus, convection is reduced and most of the heat is then radiated directly to the occupants.

Using radiant heating reduces heat stratification and provides comfort at lower room temperature, thereby saving significant amounts of energy. In fact, a radiant heating system may easily use 52% less energy than electric baseboards.  Radiant Heating is available in a variety of types to suit any application:  all heater includes at their heart a thin film heating element, which allows slim design with fast, reliable efficient heating and maximise the radiant heat output.
