Infrared Heating Systems

Sunline Radiant Heating Systems. Anything else is a waste of your energy.

Energy efficiency is at the top of the environmental agenda.

The Sunline Radiant Heating System uses cutting edge technology, the very latest in heat-efficiency, to produce savings of up to 90% in heating, maintenance and repair bills. Installed in over 10,000 homes and businesses across Europe.

Certified to the highest European standards each panel within the system is a stand-alone unit. Should there be any difficulty, any associated costs are extremely low. Designed to maintain a constant temperature, the whole room and building is heated evenly ensuring the ground floor is just as warm as the rest! The Sunline Radiant Heating System really comes into its own providing maximum savings when integrated with solar roof panels.

What is Far Infrared Heating?

Infrared is invisible radiant energy, electromagnetic radiation with longer wavelengths than those of visible light.

Whilst we can’t see it, Infrared is completely safe for all living things. Essentially, the main difference with Far Infrared heating is that it works by heating the surface area of solid objects which then radiate back into the room and warm the air temperature around them.

This is completely opposite of traditional heating systems which heat the air (which is very poor at heat retention) not the objects.

What savings can be made?

Sunline Radiant Heating Systems have no moving parts, no pipework, and no liquids or gases flowing through them. The table below demonstrates the comparison running costs of a single 20m3 room for a six month heating season. The savings in energy and financial costs are substantially over 50% in heating, maintenance, repair and replacement compared to conventional heating.

Benefits of our Far Infrared heating system

The very latest wave in heat-efficient-technology, Directtech Sunline Far Infrared Heating Panels are manufactured in Germany and installed in over 10,000 homes and businesses across Europe. The most commonly asked queries are answered below:

System benefits

  • Up to 50% savings on gas central heating.
  • Up to 80% savings on oil and conventional electric heating including storage heaters.
  • Energy efficient low carbon heating (40 – 80% carbon reduction)
  • 5 year manufacture warranty and 25 year product lifespan.
  • Use alongside Solar PV to reduce bills further.

Product Certification and approval: The Sunline Far Infrared system is well established throughout Europe with our products being made to the highest of standards in Germany. All Sunline products have the TÜV GS certification including monitoring of production processes by the TÜV. All production processes are certified to ISO standards as well as having a CE mark which confirms the product’s adhesion to current European guidelines.

Building Maintenance: Once installed, the heating system significantly reduces or removes any issues caused by damp in walls which provides significant potential cost and health benefits.

System maintenance: Once the panels are installed, no further maintenance is required.  Our panels are solid state and therefore with no moving parts, they will not break or wear out. In the event of a panel failing (almost unheard of) that panel would simply be replaced. This is both extraordinarily convenient and does not affect the remainder of the system which would continue to operate unhindered.

Low impact and simple installation: The Infra Red systems are very easy to install and require minimal disruption in terms of the working day or to the fabric of the building whereas, a traditional wet system generally requires considerable disruption during installation and maintenance. The panels run off electricity and can be plugged into a socket or wired from the mains supply. They’re incredibly easy for any certified electrician to install with mess kept to a minimum.

  • Health benefits
  • Improves metabolism
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Benefits circulation
  • Helps inflammatory conditions
  • Reduces and eliminates mould

Protection of vulnerable individuals: Our heating systems can be installed anywhere. Frequently, this means in the ceiling, out of the reach of vulnerable individuals (such as small children or the elderly). Once out of harm’s way, they also represent little danger of trauma caused by impact with the sharp metal edges or burning.

Allergy reduction: Due to the uniform heating of the solid objects by the radiant heat, dust and other allergens are less likely to be stirred up and circulated around rooms.

Comfort: Our system is designed to run 24 hours per day whilst using significantly less energy than a conventional system. This result is a building that is always warm and comfortable with a consistent temperature in each room. Traditionally, the difference in temperature in any one room can be 7 degrees from floor to ceiling, but with our radiant panels there’s no more than 1 degree difference in heat, floor to ceiling.

Aesthetically pleasing

Stylish:  The heating panels look amazing! Available in a choice of designs, colours and frames, they offer the flexibility to compliment any setting. Whether your taste is for understated and subtle, or eye-catching and bold, there’ll be a colour and style to suit your needs.

Portable: When moving house or premises, our panels can simply be removed and taken with you thus ensuring a true long-term investment.

Location:  The panels can be mounted discretely on ceilings and walls much the same as picture frames or mirrors, or can form an eye catching focal point of a room.

Room layout: Our system offers ultimate freedom when designing room layouts as there is no need to ensure objects are not placed in front of the panels.
