Infrared heating panel selection
Infrared heating panels SolBee is one of the most efficient heating solutions for rooms or other spaces heating. Depending on the size of the room to be heated, different dimension and power infrared heating panels could be offered. It is important to understand that by choosing to low power heater may lead that desired temperature in the room will not be achieved. Choosing the more higher power heating panel will not increase heating costs, only the room will be heated faster and also this will require more instantaneous electricity power supply. Therefore, in the case of limited household power supply capacity, it is necessary to evaluate this in order not to trip automatic fuses and disconnect the power supply.
Infrared heating panels SolBee is 30 mm thick (without mounting bracket), so it is perfect for installation in offices, residential premises, commercial and other premises. Heating plates can be mounted both on the ceiling and on the walls. They can also be integrated in suspended ceiling systems such as Amstrong, Thermatex, Rockfon and others.
The infrared heating panel must be connected to a power line controlled by a room thermostat. The room thermostat maintains preset room temperature and switches on the panel if the temperature needs to be increased, or switches off the panel, when the preset temperature is reached. The heating panel must be powered by a separate wire with a circuit breaker (switch) in order to be able to disconnect the panel from the from power supply, if the heating panel is connected to a permanent installation wires.
Regardless the way of heating panel connection to electricity supply, they must be connected to the power line controlled by the room thermostat. The room thermostat maintains preset room temperature and switches on the panel if the temperature needs to be increased, or switches off the panel, when the preset temperature is reached.
Heated area table:
|Heating panel power, W||Heating area when demand up to 50 W/m2||Heating area when demand is 50 – 100 W/m2||Heating area when demand above 100 W/m2|
|300||2 – 6 m2||2 – 4 m2||2 – 3 m2|
|450||6 – 10 m2||5 – 7 m2||3– 5 m2|
|600||10 – 14 m2||8 – 10 m2||4 – 7 m2|
|800||14 – 20 m2||12 – 14 m2||6 – 9 m2|
|1000||18 – 26 m2||14 – 16 m2||8 – 12 m2|
Heating panel installing heights:
|300 – 600 W||Min 0,5 m||2,4 – 2,7 m|
|800 – 1000 W||Min 1,0 m||2,7 – 3,0 m|
Infrared heating panels can be used both as the main and as an additional heat source. The panels can also be combined with other heating systems, when comfortable heating of certain areas is required and this cannot be reached with other heating systems.
