How Sunlife IR panels work?
Heated SUNLIFE IR panels convert almost 100% of electricity into heat. Most electrical energy (near the theoretical maximum) is transferred into a room using human- and animal-friendly natural forms of heat – long infrared (IR-C) wavelengths. The rest of the heat is transferred to objects that are in contact with the IR panel. Objects absorb the energy of infrared waves and emit it back into the room in the form of heat, which is partially transferred to air, partially to objects, and partially through the IR-C waves back to the surroundings. So, IR waves do not heat the air as conventional convection heating systems, but heat up primarily things in their immediate vicinity – floor, walls, objects, liquid and living creatures that emit heat into their surroundings in a natural and healthy way, evenly heating up space and the air inside. The heated IR panel is ready to transform your space into one large low-temperature radiator. This is the key feature of IR heating that leads to many other advantages. The heat produced is pleasant and comfortable for both humans and animals. Throughout history, humans have used this heating principle with tiled stoves. Indeed, IR heating is a more natural and healthy type of heating compared to convection. It is natural because it imitates the natural cycle of heating, and it is healthy because there is less air vortexing and the humidity in air is adequately maintained. The operation of the infrared heating is thus also affected by properties of the substances in the room. The exceptional efficiency of IR panels can be further enhanced by using a special, unique thermo-ceramic coating THERMOSUN, which simultaneously solves the problem of humidity and mould in the room. In combination with IR panels, the energy-saving paint Thermosun achieves extremely pleasant heat, which has a beneficial effect on your wellbeing. With this kind of heating, we ensure comfort and health, and also reduce costs.
