Dispelling 10 Myths About Radiant Ceiling Heat
Myth No.1: Radiant Ceiling Heat is brand new technology.
Surprisingly, Radiant Ceiling Heat is not new to the heating industry. Ceiling heat has been around for decades and has proven to be a reliable, efficient and luxurious heating product installed in homes around the world. Many people in the United States are simply unfamiliar with the technology or have many misconceptions which we hope to help dispel. Since 1980, original installations of Calorique Perfectly Warm Ceiling Heat are still operating flawlessly in homes today. Calorique Ceiling Heat offers a 25 Year Limited Warranty.
Myth No.2: Radiant Ceiling Heat is Not Efficient
A popular size of Calorique Radiant Ceiling Heat delivers 15.24 watts of heat per square foot. Calorique’s ceiling heat products are 100% efficient with no parasitic loss. According to the Department of Energy, “Radiant heating has a number of advantages. It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because it eliminates duct losses.” Calorique US Ceiling Heat delivers the following Watts Per square foot:
12” on center, 240V = only 17.83 Watts per Sq. Ft.
16” on center, 240V = only 15.24 Watts per Sq. Ft.
24” on center, 240V = only 13.77 Watts per Sq. Ft.
16” on center, 208V = only 15.24 Watts per Sq. Ft.
MYTH No. 3: Ceiling Heat is Not as Comfortable as Other Heating Methods
It is a common misunderstanding that “heat rises” and so ceiling heat can make you think twice. The answer may surprise you, but it is quite simple Radiant Ceiling Heat such as Calorique Perfectly Warm Ceiling Heat works much like sunshine. Radiant Ceiling Heat warms objects in the room unlike conventional baseboard which heats the air and rises. Radiant Heat takes the path of least resistance. Heat automatically conducts to “cold” so a good insulation is utilized to direct the heat into the required space. Ceiling heat is a superior choice for a Whole House Primary Heating System. It literally feels like sunshine. You feel warmer faster and Radiant Ceiling Heat also eliminates hot and cold spots because it is more evenly distributed. Other conventional heating systems cause inconsistencies which relate to less comfort.
Radiant heating systems are designed to match the heat loss of a human body in a way not possible by any other form of heating. Radiant Heating provides more comfort than the “hot/cool breezes” often associated with a forced-air system.
Myth No.4: Radiant Ceiling Heat Panels take longer to produce heat
Unlike other types of radiant heating systems, Perfectly Warm Radiant Ceiling Heat Panels have the quickest response time of any heating technology. Response time is measured by the amount of time it takes to make the occupant “comfortable.” In many cases radiant heating systems provide a faster response time than any other forms of heating.
Myth No.5: Because warm air rises, baseboard heating must be better than radiant ceiling heat panels.
Not true at all. Think of this. On a bright day, you can feel the sun’s warmth when standing in sunlight, yet feel cooler when standing in the shade. The air temperature actually remains the same, but heat shining down from above flows towards cooler objects, warming them directly and is evenly distributed. Calorique uses low levels of warmth to heat your room and its occupants, just like the sun – comfortably, efficiently and naturally. Ceiling heat travels in the direction it is pointed, in this case downward. With Radiant Ceiling Heat, there are no obstructions to block the heat unlike other conventional heating methods.
Myth No.6: Radiant Ceiling Heat is Expensive to Operate.
When both air temperature and radiant transfer are compensated for, you feel comfortable at lower room air temperatures therefore saving you money. Individual thermostat controls allow you to turn down heat in unused rooms. People generally spend 80% of their time in just 20% of their rooms. Energy savings also comes from lower overall thermostat settings. Heat loss from any building is driven by the temperature difference between the inside of the structure and the outside. Conventional systems locate registers along outside walls and under windows to compensate for cold surfaces. This is a perfect set up for wasting energy. Radiant panels also direct the heat to the interior of the space and reduce or eliminate the excessive temperatures on outside walls and ceilings which result in significant energy savings.
Radiant Ceiling Heat provides unparalleled comfort with minimal panel coverage and maximum efficiency to help lower home heating costs. Calorique Perfectly Warm Radiant Ceiling Heat is a quiet, low maintenance solution with no moving parts to maintain.
Myth No.7: Ceiling heat must make your head hot.
Not true. You may be thinking of high intensity heaters. Radiant ceiling heat panels are low mass heat emitters, meaning they respond quickly to changes in room conditions. Under normal conditions Radiant Ceiling Heat Panels do not heat the air to an uncomfortable level such as forced air systems.
Myth No.8: Radiant Ceiling Heat is a cluttered and complex solution
Panels are designed to easily fit standard joist spacing of 12”, 16” and 24” on center. This primary out-of-sight heating system provides uniform heat distribution and is easily installed by stapling to the underside of joists. Calorique Perfectly Warm Radiant Ceiling Heat is a simple and affordable whole house heating solution that can be powered from renewable solar energy. It is an ultra-high, 100% energy efficient system. Calorique Perfectly Warm Radiant Ceiling Heat is available in rolls of panels, or individual panels and can be simply cut to length at most any jobsite.
Myth No. 9: Ceiling Heat is Not Safe
Calorique Perfectly Warm Ceiling Heat is UL Listed, EMC compliant and controlled by a GFCI Thermostat. Installations of Calorique Ceiling Heat from over 30 years ago are still safely operating and efficiently functioning today. Airborne dust, pollen, and germs are reduced by the elimination of blowing air caused by other conventional heating systems
Myth No. 10: Radiant Ceilings Suffer from the “”Shadow Affect”
Some people believe that radiant ceilings suffer from “shadowing affects”. The misconception is that legs under tables or desks are shielded from the radiant heat creating cold spots. Actually, the invisible heat rays emit from the heated surface to other cooler unheated surfaces. This bouncing of energy creates very even overall heat distribution. Shadowing for radiant ceilings or floors is negligible and non-existent in most cases.
