Radiant Heating Benefits & How Radiant Heating Works from AmbiRad

Through significant ongoing investment in R&D, AmbiRad has continually pushed the boundaries of space heating energy efficiency.

Renowned for its pioneering track record, AmbiRad, Europes leading supplier of radiant tube heating systems, has yet again raised the industry standard in terms of innovation and technical performance.

AmbiRad Vision is the most exciting development in radiant heating technology of recent years. The principles behind radiant heating have changed little since the technology was first invented, but Vision takes performance further than ever before, thanks to its all-new burner technology.

A wide range of heat outputs is available, answering the heating needs of the majority of large scale buildings.


Radiant Heating Benefits

  • Reduced running costs. Savings of up to 65% of fuel costs can be achieved
  • Even heat coverage at low level
  • Does not directly heat the air - ideal in areas of high air infiltration
  • Minimises roof heat losses - reduced stratification
  • Systems can be controlled easily to provide varying zoned temperatures and operating times
  • Rapid heat up and recovery times
  • Easy to install, maintain and operate


How Radiant Heating Works

Working in the same way as the sun, radiant heat warms all solid objects and surfaces in its path through infrared waves. Being mounted overhead, AmbiRad radiant heaters produce infrared heat that is directed downwards to low level by a reflector.

Infrared energy passes inertly through the air, dissipating as heat upon contact with people and surfaces thus creating a comfortable, all round radiant warmth at lower air temperature. This is ideal for spot or localised heating.

Radiant heat takes only minutes to reach comfort temperatures, so energy is never wasted in prolonged warm-up times. If external doors are opened, allowing cold air to enter the building, radiant heating will recover comfort temperatures in just a few minutes.
