Let's compare a gas boiler with radiators against the radiant foil system.
The radiant foil, like the sun, heats objects, before the air around it heats up. So you can receive heat, while the air that surrounds him stays cold, clean and fresh. Something that is especially appreciated by those with respiratory problems.
Many people assume that choosing an electric underfloor heating system for their home will be more expensive to maintain than a gas boiler system, simply because gas is thought to be cheaper than electricity. This, however, is not entirely true. Unlike gas, electricity is nearly 100% efficient at the point of use.
The average life of a gas boiler is 10 years., according to industry estimates.
The Cecather radiant foil system has no moving parts to wear out. And our system comes with a certified full-performance life of 850,000 hours (100 years) and a written warranty against any malfunction for 10 years.
When the annual maintenance costs of a gas boiler are added to the equation, the annual costs of the Cecather radiant foil system are significantly improved.
In the Cecather radiant foil system, a insulation on the entire floor surface, which together with better control of fuel costs through strict zoning of the property through the incorporation of temperature control programmable thermostats, significantly reduce consumption.
Something no less important is that in the radiant folio there is no risk of combustion.
Gas systems tend to heat the air in all the rooms of your house at once, whether you are using them or not. The radiant foil, however, can be programmed to heat a room individually, where and when you require it (for example, a bathroom for an hour and a half in the morning).
By adapting the use of the system according to your lifestyle, you can enjoy a substantial savings.
With the radiant foil there are no hot spots since the emitting focus is distributed over the entire surface of the floor without being conditioned by any type of furniture.
