Carbontec® is Instant Heat

While using Carbontec® radiant heating you will start feeling warm almost immediately, which is one of the most impressive infrared heating benefits because even if the rest of the room is still cold, you will absorb the heat directly without needing to wait for the surrounding air to get warm. This experience of feeling warm is comparable with the warmth felt by skiers or mountain climbers. Even in low air temperatures in the presence of infrared heat from the sun, the environment can be perceived as warm.


Carbontec® is Renewable Energy Ready

Along with the application of Carbontec® in your home, it is possible to use other energy from renewable sources such as sun, wind and water. For example, your Carbontec® system can heat the entire house directly with free electricity coming from the solar panel installation on your roof. The combination of Carbontec® and renewable energy makes Carbontec® very economical, particularly over time. Carbontec® heats with CO2-neutral emissions. Heating with conventional energy sources, such as oil and gas is becoming increasingly expensive, whilst heating with renewable energy not only aids the environment but is also rewarding.



Carbontec® Helps Rid Your House of Dampness and Mold

Another infrared heating benefit is the fact that Carbontec® is the only infrared heating system that is capable of deterring condensation in your home which results in a less favorable environment for mold spores or dust mites to grow. The unique perforation feature of Carbontec® enables permeability i.e. transferring humidity from the surfaces. The permeability of the heating film prevents dampness from being trapped inside the wall and helps excess humidity to evaporate through the perforation in the material of Carbontec®. Other infrared heating films, which do not have this key feature, and they can potentially contribute to dampness to be trapped between the surfaces of the heating material and the ceiling.

Carbontec can help your floors and ceilings become uninhabitable to the presence of mold or dust mites by reducing relative humidity. Carbontec® prevents mold because infrared heat warms up ceilings and floors faster than the air of the room. As a consequence no steam condenses and mold has no opportunity to form.



Carbontec® Increases the Living Space

Using Carbontec® heating system as the main source of heat will not only save you on energy consumption, but will also increase a living space due to absence of pipes, radiators, due to the 0.21 millimeters thickness of material.

Carbontec® heating film is thin and therefore uses the minimal amount of space, comparable to wallpaper. Carbontec® film can be applied on any flat surface ceilings or floors thus banishing completely the need for bulky radiators, pipes, storage heaters and boilers. Carbontec® is not visible once installed in your home, another infrared heating benefit for those looking at resale value.

Carbontec® can and should ideally be applied to the ceiling. With this application you can achieve greater heating area coverage.



Carbontec® Operates Silently

As there are no moving or mechanical parts, Carbontec® heating film is inaudible in both standby and operational modes unlike all water flow based conventional heating systems. Therefore you can relax comfortably without any disturbing noise emanating from radiators, pipes, pumps or boilers.

There is no dry air circulating unlike from central air systems.



Carbontec® is 100% Safe

One of the most important infrared heating benefits that you get is in the safety of our product. Carbontec® material is resistant to minor damages, and is able to be cut out for light fixtures or ceiling fans if need be. Carbontec® heating films are very durable by design so they are resistant to the harsh environment of a job site.

All heating materials are non flammable and are safe to use on both interior home surfaces and ceiling surfaces. There is no risk of electric shock because Carbontec®heating film is powered by low voltage, through safety certified Carbontec® transformer.

All Carbontec® heating films are manufactured under ISO 9001 quality management systems and undergo strict material controls. We are CE certified and approved by safety agencies such as TUV and GS (Germany) and we are also UL-Listed in the United States.



Carbontec® is Easy to Mount and Install

Carbontec® perforated film has a unique patented surface and woolly coating of NapTouch that allows to save up to 32% on construction mixes and characterizes material as resistant to alkaline influence of tiles adhesive or plaster. High adhesion (bond to surfaces) enables the system to be installed under any decorative coating. Installation of Carbontec® requires the minimum of effort; however your system should be installed by a trained certified electrician or contractor to achieve the maximum infrared heating benefits.

The installation is a simple procedure requiring minimum effort. The longest step during the installation process is waiting for the adhesion plaster or ceiling plaster to dry, which accelerated by operating your new heating system for 10 hours to ensure proper  adhesion and operation. Carbontec® system consists of only a few components, making it a very simple addition to your home or business. There is no need to install a boiler, radiators, ducting or any additional pipe work in order to operate it.



Carbontec® is Non-Allergic

Are you allergic to dust? Suffer from asthma? Using Carbontec® to heat your home or business, you will not have intensive air flows which circulates dust. It keeps the air clean and moderately dry.



Carbontec® is Economic

Energy consumption is only 40 Watts per linear foot of the Carbontec® material, thus Carbontec® heating system efficiency is 2.5 – 3 times higher in comparison with traditional convection systems of heating, including the gas ones.

Carbontec® heating films can transfer and emit energy with little to no loss, giving it unprecedented infrared heating benefits in way of economic value. Besides being 98% energy efficient, Carbontec® films can deliver heat with over 95% radiant efficiency. In comparison to Carbontec®, the radiant efficiency of conventional heating is normally below 30%. This means that conventional heating is less effective in providing you with heat energy because more than 70% of the heat energy goes to heat the air volume which dissipates rapidly. Heating with 98% radiant efficiency, means that your money is not wasted on hot air masses concentrated around your ceiling, heating you do not need.

Consequently, the superior radiant efficiency of Carbontec® results in about 3 times less energy needed relative to the energy required by conventional heating. That means that with Carbontec® you not only get superior quality of heating but also reduce energy consumption.
