ECOMAXX Underfloor heating, gently warms your room from the floor upwards, resulting in the perfect spread of heat, creating a comfortable environment for all.
Our underfloor heating systems run at temperatures lower than traditional radiators, making it more efficient, with lower running costs.
It can work divided in several independent heating zones (rooms) separately controlled by programmable room thermostats. That practically means that you can simply switch off the room that you don’t use and lower the heating cost.
Our underfloor heating systems can be directly connected to photovoltaic systems.
Simple physics says that there are three ways of heat transfer. Convection (air circulation) Conduction (penetration through solid material) and Radiation (waves).
Heat doesn’t rise. Hot air rises. Traditional heating solutions rely on one heating device per a room, fueled by wood, coal, gas, hot water, oil…
Smaller the heating device, higher the temperature is needed, equals more energy and higher losses.
Apart from storage and safety issues, such devices cause hot air circulation in the room, drought, rising dust and mites, generally making the ceiling area warmer than floor area.
Water or electricity?
A wet, water or hydronic system is basically a pipeline beneath the floor, connected to a boiler or a heat exchanger. The warm water, propelled by a pump, regulated with a series of valves circulates and heats the floor which heats your space.
This comes at the disadvantage of price, complicated installation, moving parts, maintenance required, leaking and jamming risk, and slow response. Therefore, electricity is best.
What makes us different?
Some electric underfloor heating systems run on high voltage. Thick, insulated copper cables installed beneath the floor use 220-240V alternate currant (AC) from the grid. These systems are lackluster as they produce high voltage, high temperature of the cables (the cables are relatively thin, so high temperature is needed to compensate the gap between them) and copper oxidation.
Advanced ECOMAXX underfloor heating systems uses low voltage. It also uses aluminium alloy instead of copper and wide tapes instead of cables. Those specific properties result in corrosion resistivity and wider heating surface equals longer life span and lower running cost. Ecomaxx has several advantages over high voltage systems such as safety, low consumption, simple installation, low temperature of the heater all coupled with a 20 years warranty.
