Compared to conventional heating systems, a surface heating system only needs half the water temperature, since a small temperature difference between the heated surface and the room air is sufficient for effective heating. The water supply temperature can therefore be several degrees lower. As a result, you save approximately 2% of energy for each degree - meaning substantial savings in your heating bill.
Cost-effective to purchase and operate
Thanks to its matching system components, the ceramic thermal comfort floor BEKOTEC-THERM is quick and easy to install, which saves time and money in construction. The system also offers many long-term advantages: Thus, the ceramic thermal comfort floor requires substantially less energy to operate than a radiator heating system, which saves hard cash, month after month.
Sense of warmth
Because the gentle heat radiated by the surfaces is perceived as particularly pleasant, the room temperature can be set two degrees lower than in the case of conventional radiators. The heat sensation is the same, which saves energy.
Modern condensed boiler technology and Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM
The increase of energetic efficiency relies on the utilisation of latent heat contained in the water vapour of smoke gas (energy gain by partial condensation).
The water vapour is the result of burning natural gas and oil. With the use of conventional low temperature heating boilers, the heat contained in emissions gas typically is released to the environment, together with water vapour. Condensed boiler technology is able to condense the water vapour of the emissions flow in a heat exchanger and derive additional heating energy even after the combustion process.
This effect can only be utilised efficiently with low return temperatures.
The Schlüter-BEKOTEC-THERM ceramic thermal comfort floor improves the energy utilisation of condensed boilers with low system temperatures.
