With the new EPC regulations requiring properties to be rated E or above there is a need for the the formulas used by EPC assessors to change regarding the use of Far Infrared heating. At the moment these panels are regarded the same as ordinary electric panels even though they are much more effective and more importantly more efficient in comfort level heating.
I have used these easily installed panels in the bathrooms where they are particularly useful and also in living areas. The fact that they heat material things directly rather than, like ordinary electric heaters, the mass of air which then in turn warms material things makes then much more efficient.
Comfort levels can be achieved with an air temperature down to 18-19°. This of course makes for lower running costs and thus should be rated differently to ordinary electric panels which need to heat air to at least 21° for comfort.
Far infrared heats us in the same way as the sun. You stand in sunshine and you feel warm. You step into the shade and it feels immediately cooler yet the surrounding air temperature is the same. The future of heating is here if only EPC rating rules were logical.
