Introducing ASTECthermTM a new and improved home heating system. Whether Underfloor, walls or even in the ceiling – our heating solutions fit any project.
ASTECthermTM is a revolutionary Infrared Radiant Heating System which runs off a low voltage electrical current (less than 36V) and is therefore very economical to run. Once installed, our systems are fully concealed within the fabric of the building allowing for greater wall space and clean lines. ASTECthermTM heating film can be installed underfloor or be plastered into the ceiling or walls of your property – depending on your heating requirements.
What are the benefits of choosing an ASTECthermTM Radiant Heating System over a conventional heating system?
Most heating systems in homes throughout the UK function by warming the air in the room which then circulates to keep us warm. However, this conventional style of heating system is inefficient and wastes a great deal of energy in the heating processes. The heated air escapes through ceilings, doors, windows and any other gaps in the structure of the building.
In recent years screed underfloor heating systems have grown in popularity. These heat the screed mass in the floor which holds the heat for a longer and releases it more evenly throughout the building. However, the disadvantage of screed floor systems can be the disruption and cost of installation.
ASTECthermTM materials work by emitting radiant heat (infrared) which, rather than heating the air, heats the particles in the objects and surfaces of the room. ASTECthermTM offers flexibility and can be installed underfloor in both wet and dry areas, or within the walls or ceiling of a building. In wall or ceiling installations the material can be embedded within the plaster so that it is unseen once fitted. Since ASTECthermTM materials heat the structure and objects within the building, installation can also help to reduce damp and condensation.
Other benefits from ASTECthermTM heating systems
