The cold arrives… It is time to put our heating on.
What temperature is the right one?
Difficult decision... some feel hot from the first moment, others, the "chillers", need more heat to feel pleasant.
Everyone has their own perception of comfort in terms of temperature, but we should probably be guided by the former, since it has been shown that the excess heat provided by heating does not "do us good".
Heating on people's health
Many studies have analyzed the effect of heating use on people's health. And they have all reached the same conclusion, the ideal is not to abuse heating, that during the day it is at a maximum of 21ºC and that it never exceeds 23ºC., recommended by the IDAE (Institute for the Diversification of Savings and Energy).
We explain why...
systems convection heating They are based on the movement of air flows. But due to this, dust and suspended particles are dragged, favoring these allergic disorders.
The radiation systems (underfloor heating) do not involve air movement and are more beneficial for people who tend to suffer from allergies.
When the heating is very high or it has been running for many hours, the environment dries out excessively and with it the nostrils., which favors the development of microorganisms.
In addition, sudden changes in temperature and dry throat can weaken defenses. In fact, this is one of the main reasons why colds are more common during this time. With radiant heating it is avoided at all times dry out the environment, emitting heat through our underfloor heating always at the same temperature.
With a convection heating system, the high temperature generated, difficult to control in many cases, can make our eyes feel dry or red.
Even the combination of excessive heat and lack of humidity that convection systems facilitate can take its toll even on your body appearance, since your skin notices sudden temperature changes when going from a cold place to an excessively heated place and even with the environmental dryness.
The healthiest heating: electric underfloor heating
Finally, with our Cecather heating system we can verify that our users perceive, with an ambient temperature of 19 ºC, a pleasant sensation of comfort, when in reality, with other systems, 21 ºC would be necessary.
Therefore, unanimity among users in the use of heating (without the need for high temperatures but with environmental comfort for all tastes), proven advantages for our health and to that we add a high energy saving and economic… What else can you offer?
