Water capillary mats – energy-efficient one system technology for heating and cooling
Low-temperature heating system, +28-30°C
Possible combination with natural energy sources(for example, heating and cooling energy of lakes, rivers, groundwater, etc.).
Low maintenance costs.
Significantly lower energy consumption and costs(transfer of energy – up to 80%, operating in conjunction with heat pumps ≈ 45%, air temperature can be reduced by 3 °C – up to 15%).
Suitable for premises with higher purity requirements;circulation of dust and microorganisms in the air flow is eliminated that is important given the world’s growing number of people with allergic reactions.
Heating and cooling in one system
Possible to combine cooling, heating and reduction of humidity in one system.
A higher level of comfort – no uneven cool/warm air flow from one point in the room in comparison with other air conditioning and heating systems.
Self-regulating effect– the rate of circulating air flow and capacity will increase or decrease depending on the changes in the room temperature.
Adaptable to the architecture of the premises
Possibleinvisible installation of the heating/cooling elementthat is particularly important in modern buildings with large glass areas.
Simple, quick installation and low installation costs.
Possibleinstallation of convection cooling columns or cabinets, which can also serve as a room design element.
Cost savingsin the construction processof the building because of the lower ceiling height requirements for the installation of the heating/cooling system.
Veryeasy to control capacity and room temperature (for example, 25% faster warming in comparison with other floor heating feasible technologies).
Very high cooling capacity (independent of the “dew point”).
Possible to combine with the central ventilation system.
Further advantages in safety, maintenance, and quality
Limestone does not occur in water capillary mats; limestone forms at +60°C – the water in the water capillary systems is max. at +30°C for heating and max at +17°C for cooling.
Mud does not occur in water capillary mats; mud results from corrosion – water cable systems use corrosion-protected components only.
Prior to operation, the safety of the water capillary system is verified with air and water pressure, both at 10 bar.
Water capillary mats can be repaired easily;a capillary is cut and both ends are welded – with no effect to the cooling output.
Water capillary mats do not require maintenanceand have a product liability of up to 50 years.
