The larger heat exchange surface of the glass panel evenly emits the far infrared into a room (1 degree difference between floor and 3 metre ceiling). Because of the larger heat exchange surface, the radiant heat isn’t overpowering like older radiant heaters that can become intolerable to be close to.
By heating the surrounding walls, the LAVA® Glass Infrared Radiant Panels can reduce the appearance of mould in the walls.
Convection heating systems only heat the air and transport fine dust through the air. This can be especially troublesome for allergy sufferers.
As a result of heating the air, any change in the room (a door opening, window opening or person moving) can cause a change in heated air in the room. LAVA® Glass Infrared Radiant Panels heat objects in the room and are less prone to fluctuations in temperature, which is reflected in the annual energy bill.
Once the room is up to temperature, the actual room itself becomes like a storage heater and releases heat back into a room.
