Carbontec in Your Home: Where Should I Install Radiant Heating?
Carbontec radiant heating is an efficient and versatile alternative to traditional heating and cooling systems. A thin cloth installed under the floor or ceiling provides heat to the objects in the room through infrared heating. The heat is then transferred from the objects in the room to its occupants. This heat transfer causes their body temperature to adjust accordingly while maximizing thermal comfort, which is your body’s assessment of the external environment’s temperature.
While this is not a “new” technology by any means, it has recently seen an increase in popularity in the United States as it has a variety of benefits. Carbontec systems are very efficient, while traditional HVAC systems lose energy through components such as ducts and radiators, but with Carbontec, this waste is eliminated. It operates at 98% energy efficiency and 95% radiant efficiency, while traditional HVAC systems hover around 30%. In turn, this leads to significantly lower energy bills for your home. Carbontec’s installation process is simple, and they require minimal maintenance as well. It is the perfect heating and cooling system for a variety of different circumstances and rooms in your home.
Radiant Heating Can Coexist with Central Air
Carbontec is the ideal heating and cooling system for many different rooms and circumstances in your home. If you are interested in Carbontec but already have an HVAC system in your home, that’s no issue at all! Carbontec can coexist with any HVAC system in your home. It is also ideal in rooms that your central HVAC system does not reach, such as an addition or garage.
Pairing Carbontec radiant heating with an EnergySTAR-approved HVAC system allows one to completely control the temperature of the room or area and maximize comfort. Additionally, these two systems work together to minimize energy waste and maximize efficiency by reducing the stress on your HVAC system. In turn, this directly decreases your energy bill.
Carbontec Is Ideal in Damp or Wet Rooms
Carbontec is also perfect in damp or wet rooms because it deters the growth of mold and mildew. Unlike other radiant heating systems, Carbontec facilitates permeability to transfer humidity from the surfaces. By warming the ceilings and floors faster than the air, humidity is lowered and steam is not allowed to form. Preventing dampness and evaporating excess humidity help inhibit mold and mildew growth.
This also prevents the growth of dust mites and significantly increases the air quality in your room and home. If your basement, garage, or anywhere else in your home has recently had a water leak, Carbontec is the perfect way to heat the room and prevent any further damage.
Areas Tight on Space
If a room in your house needs heating but does not have the space for an HVAC system, Carbontec is the perfect option. Other heating and cooling systems require pipes, ducts, and radiators, which can take up an unnecessary amount of space while detracting from the room’s aesthetic. However, Carbontec material is only 0.21 millimeters thin and not visible after installation, so you’ll have no idea it’s there! This allows you to maximize the room’s space and increase the living area.
Carbontec Is Perfect for Bedrooms
Carbontec is also perfect to heat and cool bedrooms. Other heating and cooling systems with components such as radiators, pipes, or ducts are naturally noisy during operation. Since Carbontec is silent in both operational and standby mode, it allows you to sleep peacefully.
Carbontec’s temperature control is another reason it is ideal in the bedroom. Everybody has a different temperature preference when they sleep, and Carbontec allows you set the room to your desired temperature so you can be as comfortable as possible.
As you can see, Carbontec radiant heating has countless benefits and unmatched versatility compared to competitors. It is perfect specifically in bedrooms, damp or wet rooms, and rooms tight on space. It can also complement an existing HVAC system in any room in your home.
However, these are not the only scenarios or rooms where Carbontec is beneficial.
